Traditional cottages with superb views of the Cairngorms, set in 13,000 acres of stunning highland scenery Alvie Estate stretches from the River Spey, over the Monadhliath Mountains to the Dulnain river. Just 5 minutes south of Aviemore makes Alvie the perfect place for exploring the Highlands.
With self catered accommodation sleeping from 4 to 10 guests your stay can be combined with a wide variety of activities such as Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery, Zip Wire Park, Horse Riding, Quad Bike Treks, Bushcraft Survival Techniques as well as the usual country sports you would expect to find on a Highland Estate.
North Wing is a comfortable very spacious, tastefully furnished and lovingly cared for part of the Alvie House.
It is very well equipped and we were able to entertain other members of the family staying in properties on Alvie Estate for several evening meals during the week.
The grounds were a haven for three young grandsons to explore and play to their hearts content.
We were made very welcome and would definitely recommend North Wing for a family reunion or just a spacious retreat for some peace and tranquility.
We have been to Alvie many times and and have always left refreshed and uplifted. Sadly, this time, we have not. We usually stay in one of the other cottages but the last two times we have stayed in Easter Delfour Farmhouse. In November I would have scored our stay highly but this time, with the nearby quarry in operation, I cannot. The noise, dust and constant stream of lorries were a disappointment. We should have been made aware that the quarry was back in operation before we arrived and greater efforts made to suppress the dust on the roads although there is little could be done about ...more
Splendid week with many thanks to all. Only very minor problem which was periodic related to the water system from the upstairs toilet. Toilet flushed perfectly but there was intermittent water activity down the pipes. Did it matter - no- settling by week end so not a real issue.
Hope to come back. Not having been to stay for three years, it was so good to see the Estate looking so focused, all so neat, staff so welcoming and with an added air of confidence. The location is unbeatable. Watched 16 deer one evening walking past near Park House- a delight.
We loved our stay and the setting in the estate was superb. So quiet & peaceful with fantastic views of the Cairngorms surrounding us. The cottage was homely and mostly comfy but the sofas & chair have obviously been well used for some time and the seat cushions on them are flagging. This is the only reason this was not a full 5 score throughout. We found the beds very comfy & warm with a great shower in the bathroom. To show how well we loved this visit we have already booked for next year.
The cottage was exactly how I envisioned it. The log fire was a treat and easy to light. The weather was mild and the house cosy. Furniture comfortable and kitchen well equipped. The area is beautiful peaceful and handy loads of facilities. I can highly recommend a stay at Wester Delfour.
