“Our family has enjoyed the most wonderful week in the beautiful Boat House! No detail has been left unnoticed in this amazing gem of the Rothiemurchus Estate. We would like to thank the team especially for the care they have taken with Covid proofing the experience and making us feel both safe and wonderfully comfortable. With the calm and beautiful surrounds as well as acres of fresh air, we’re sure we could not have chosen anywhere more perfect to holiday during these uncertain times. Our sincere thanks to all. “

“Wow, what can we say about this house.  It is truly luxurious in every sense.  We have had a wonderful time.  Unlike many other houses of this age and size, The Boathouse has a real feeling of warmth and it is as inviting as it is beautiful.  Perfectly located and updated with such respect to what it is.  We cannot imagine a more stunning house, in a more stunning setting.  Simply perfect.  James and Amy, you both made it so easy from booking to our stay – thank you!  See you in 2020.”  Guest Book, December 2019
