    The cottage is very big with large bedrooms and other amenities. Nice jacuzzi and other facilities, the kitchen was a disaster, there was hardly any usable kitchenware available to cook, good selection of plates and cutlery was there, the restaurants in the area are extremely overpriced, but you will find a subway in the town which closes by 5pm. Nice area but the property is just a large house in a recently developed posh area. The local attraction near by was Cairngorms mountains. Tourists will need to travel long distances to other main attractions in Scotland.

    Amazing property to stay in. Owners have it in great condition. The hot tub is a great addition. Stunning views from the rear of the house looking over to the Cairngorms. Having stayed in other properties nearby in previous years, this one is by far the best, we will defo stay again!.

    An excellent house with amazing views, ideal for several families together as we were. Extremely clean and tidy, comfortable beds and great range of cooking equipment. Only very small point it would have been nice to had a had a few cleaning things available in the utility room say a floor cloth and some flash or something as other places we have stayed there have been that sort of thing and then you can deal with any spillages immediately without having to pop to shops first. The guide suggested there was things there but cupboard empty.

    The Lookout is a large, spacious, modern, luxurious home, perfect for our family group of nine adults and the dog. It is in an ideal location for all the outdoor activities available in the area and close enough to Aviemore for shops, bars, restaurants,etc. The views from the rear of the house over to the Cairngorms are stunning. It was a delight to return to the house in the evening after a long day hill walking, prepare a meal in the well equipped kitchen and all sit down to wine and dine around the huge dining table. Then, retire to the lounge to watch a film or listen to music on the excellent speaker system.....and drink whisky. Tempted to light the wood burner, but the unseasonably warm February weather ruled that out. Although our party were all adults, the play room was very popular; Xbox FIFA games lasting long into the night! Slippers and dressing gowns provided for all guests - nice touch! The house is very well furnished and tastefully decorated.Lots of bathrooms, so no queues! All look forward to staying in The Lookout again. Highly recommended.

    We stayed at the Lookout for 4 nights over new year and had an such a lovely time! We were a party of 8 adults and 2 toddlers. The living space was great for all of us and the kitchen really well equiped. The house was always warm and a really nice touch to have the Christmas decorations up - as well as a lovely hamper. We were really impressed at how child-friendly the house was - with a play room full of toys/cups and plates/high chair etc. There is a play park within 30s of the house. It is a little bit of a walk to actually get down to the town (about half an hour/40mins) but wasn't an issue for us. Only point for improvement we can think of is that the back door was a bit stiff to lock sometimes - but again, not too much of an issue. Thank you very much for a great holiday!

    Excellent holiday house! 5 adults and 3 teenagers all stayed here and had a fab time. Plenty of room for everyone - to either come together for family time or have a bit space on your own. Robes and slippers were a nice touch! My only gripe would be that we had to stock up on some cleaning things - cloths, washing up liquid, anti-bac spray.......I know, boring stuff but it's still needed when you're cleaning up after 8 people. It also took a bit of time to get used to the heating/hot water. It said plenty of both but after 3 showers one morning we had ran out of hot water. Simple enough once we knew just to hit the booster after a couple of showers. All in all though I can say this is a lovely home and our family will definitely look into booking it again! Also - would like to praise the key holder.....very friendly and easy to chat to over the phone once the booking went through. I'm sure The Lookout will do fab!
