The Boat House is just beautiful with everything you could wish for and more!

There was only one problem – leaving!

We loved it so very much and so hope to return one day soon. Thank you

 

A perfect week for the family when a well-needed break was sorely needed!

A perfect week for the family when a well-needed break was sorely needed! Jess (5) was constantly entertained with all there is to do and the house provided the best refuge after busy days.

Evenings with the log fires crackling and the peace and quiet combined with what is a fantastic holiday home will have us returning. Great holiday!

Thank you all very much for a wonderful stay

Team Rothiemurchus,

Thank you all very much for a wonderful stay. The house is perfect in every way: only wish we could move in! James a big thnk you for all your assistance this week, very much appreciated. The dogs had a great time in the local area and the dedicated areas were fantastic for them to run and let off steam. We will be back.

Many thanks.

Thank you for a truly special week

Thank you for a truly special week: holiday. The Boat House is in a gorgeous setting and is brilliantly arranged with so many details thought of. We’ve had a couple of lovely meals at the Bridge Inn and can recommend the Falconry and tubing experiences.

 

Finding The Boat House was indeed the best part of our trip.

Dear All   Well it’s Friday and the week is over – home today! What a wonderful stay we have had. It has been 30 years since we visited this part of the world and what a pleasure it has been to return. Finding The Boat House was indeed the best part of our trip. […]

 

Dear All

 

Well it’s Friday and the week is over – home today! What a wonderful stay we have had. It has been 30 years since we visited this part of the world and what a pleasure it has been to return.

Finding The Boat House was indeed the best part of our trip. Like others before us this house is somewhere that feels like home the moment you come through that wonderful front door. It was so welcoming having the log burner lit for our arrival, the gree flowers in the roo,s and all the little touches which says so much about the kindness of Philippa and Johnnie and the Rothiemurchus team. We just loved it. Thank you so much.

Finally, I just want to say that the best meal of the holiday was cooked my nephew using Rothiemurchus best Filet Steaks. Wow out of this world! And didn’t even need to do the washing up!

Carpets of snowdrops stretch down to the waters of the Milton burn and daffodil leaves force their way through the grass alongside the drive down […]

Lovely house

Lovely house. We had a great time visiting the lochs, and walking among the pine trees. Our dog very much enjoyed sniffing and following the pheasant too. I particularly like looking at the Castle at Loch an Eilein.

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house. It has all been so beautifully done and thought out and we are going home with lots of design ideas. The area is fabulous and we have walked through the forest and around Loch an Eilein on most days.

What a beautiful home!

What a beautiful home!  We cannot think of a better place to spend a week – lovely interior, great location for exploring the Cairngorms, and the Farm Shop a short walk/drive away!  Our dog Toby and all the family had a wonderful time, and we’re already thinking about when we might return.

Thank you for an incredible stay!

Thank you for an incredible stay!  Having this sanctuary to retreat to after walking in the wind/hail/snow was the perfect ending to each day.  We did not want to leave and we will definitely be back – hopefully sooner rather than later!

We have loved it more than we could ever explain on these pages. What a beautiful house in a beautiful part of the world. The only way we can convince ourselves to leave is to promise that we will come back again soon.
