Plenty of space inside and outside at the Alvie estate, kids loved the freedom. So many activities on your doorstep. North wing is part of a beautiful old estate house with big rooms and ample space for 2 families and extremely warm thanks to the biomass boilers. Look forward to returning in the future.
We arrived at the Easter Delfour house with no car but lots of bags of groceries which we picked up at the Tesco in Aviemore. The cab driver took us directly to the house. From that point we had three wonderful days, days of hiking and R and R. As we had no car, Paul, the manager, was very friendly and helpful regarding the rubbish and recycling. When we had difficulty with how to work the pellet wood stove, Susie, an employee, came right over and sorted it out. In a nutshell, we had a marvelous time there.

We have stayed on the Alvie Estate in one of their self catering properties on many occasions over the last 2 years. Each time the experience is wonderful and very homely. The location looks out over the Cairngorm mountains with amazing sunrises. The elevated position gives a good view over the farm land, forest and the mountains.
The cottage has an excellent log burning fire and very well presented rooms with pristine bed linen and laundry.
The kitchen has all of the equipment needed for a long stay. The shops are only a short drive away in Aviemore.
Cant wait for our next holiday regardle...more
As usual we really enjoyed our time at Alvie. Beds seemed more comfortable than ever and we slept like logs. We take for granted that the cottage is warm and well equipped and we love the mountain views. We finally found the waterfall! Only improvement we would like to see is a new sofa as the seat cushions have no bounce left. This won't stop us coming back though. Special thanks to housekeeper and Suzie for returning the jacket we left behind.
