AS RECOMMENDED BY THE SUNDAY TIMES TRAVEL
12 JAN 2020
Welcome to your own idyllic, secluded, spacious, luxury sanctuary, hidden from the outside world in its own private corner of Rothiemurchus -“one of the 100 most amazing places in the U.K.” (Sunday Times in association with Reader’s Digest). This ultimate, super comfortable, chic, self-catering retreat in Its own stunning surroundings beside the Milton Burn where it meanders into the famous River Spey, feels remote but is just two miles upstream from Aviemore.
Nature and people live in harmony in stunning family-owned Rothiemurchus Estate, a National Scenic Area which is also recognised and protected for its natural and cultural heritage. Around historic The Boat House, peaceful mixed woodlands shelter rare wildlife – red squirrels run across trees, herons fish, buzzards call, ospreys search for fish and the occasional golden eagle flies overhead to its eyrie in the surrounding mountains. Shaggy Highland cattle and Highland ponies often graze nearby.
For those seeking an inspirational, undisturbed, luxury getaway, one of the oldest homes on Rothiemurchus has been thoughtfully transformed with useful 21st-century facilities and stunning, welcoming interiors by talented, international stylist Fanny Ward. The open, relaxed living areas and plentiful outside spaces with wonderful walks, make this perfect for families, couples seeking a romantic hidden hideaway, celebrations, and groups of friends to relax and enjoy being together in this charming, stylish, dog-friendly haven.
Our very experienced housekeeper, Eleanor is taking every precaution and care for your safety. Your personal hosts, James and Amy can organize deliveries from the nearby Rothiemurchus Estate Farm Shop recently featured on ‘James Martin’s Island to Highlands – Cairngorms’ as well as advising and booking you onto suitable things to do and places to visit – if you want to leave!
Our guests have written amazing comments; our first guest needed a hidden, very private and suitably luxurious retreat while she starred in the latest James Bond 007 movie, ‘No Time to Die’.

“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 2019Testimonials and Reviews
