Welcome to Rowlands Aviemore - self catering accommodation in the heart of the Highlands. Rowlands is a 4 bedroom cottage, sleeping 8 plus 1 baby. Dogs welcome. Large garden with patio, outdoor seating and storage shed. Rowlands has been completely renovated, extended and re-furnished in 2011, well maintained and equipped to excellent standards. Located in a pleasant residential area, the cottage is just 5 minutes walk from the golf course and 15 minutes walk from the village centre. The open countryside around Aviemore is just metres away. Aviemore is in the centre of Scotland’s great outdoors. Dominated by the wild Cairngorm mountains and surrounded by rivers, lochs and Caledonian forest, Aviemore is the ideal base for year round activities and offers walking, mountain biking, winter sports, golf, fishing and climbing. It is also a family resort, with swimming pools, children's play areas and soft play in the village and plenty of places to visit in the surrounding area
In 2011 we completely renovated, extended and re-furnished our house so we can now offer accommodation for 8 plus one baby. We offer 4 bedrooms (2 doubles, 1 twin and 1 bunks) and 2 bathrooms as well as open plan living. We have chosen a modern and contemporary design for our living space, with all the usual electrical appliances you would expect and we have furnished our house to a high standard. There is also a high chair and travel cot (bring your own bedding). The price you pay includes bedding, towels, electricity and water - there are no hidden charges. We are pleased to accept pets by arrangement. We offer free wireless broadband throughout the house and all bedrooms have TV/DVD players with Freesat.
Living/dining room area: The open plan dining/living room contains 2 comfortable leather sofas and dining space for 8 people. There is an LCD TV, DVD player, Freesat HD TV and CD/radio player. Kitchen area: the kitchen is fitted with contemporary units and has a fridge/freezer, electric cooker with a double oven, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and tumble drier.
Downstairs bedrooms: at the front of the cottage we have a king-size double (which can be converted into 2 single beds) with a built in wardrobe and an additional pine tallboy offering ample hanging and shelf space. At the back of the cottage, we have a twin room with a built in wardrobe and pine drawers. The downstairs bathroom had a drench shower over the bath as well as the sink and toilet.
Upstairs bedrooms: the main bedroom offers a king-size double with windows on both sides, including a dormer offering views of the Craigellachie Hills; there is also a wardrobe, drawers and a changing table. The final bedroom has a full size set of bunk beds and a chest of drawers and views of the Craigellachie Hills through a dormer window. The upstairs bathroom offers a large shower cubicle with electric shower as well as the sink and toilet.
Outside: The house is surrounded on 2 sides by a lawned garden, offering ample space for barbecues. Outdoor furniture is provided for dining or seating outside and we have also built a paved patio area with a wooden picnic table and seats for 8. There is off road parking for 3 cars. We provide a small shed for storage of your outdoor equipment such as skis/boards, mountain bikes and golf clubs.

With so much open space, your options for outdoor activities are endless. Walking and mountain biking routes are available throughout the Cairngorm National Park and the surrounding forests and hills so there is something for every level of ability. If you’re a golfer, then Rowlands is for you, being only a 5 minute walk to Dalfaber Golf and Country Club's spectacular Spey Valley course. And don’t forget that there are many more courses within 30 minutes drive.
With ample water sports like fishing, sailing and canoeing at Loch Morlich and Loch Insh as well as the pool in Aviemore at the Highland Resort, even wet weather days can be fun! The area is also renowned for its wildlife (the RSPB centre at Loch Garten) and don’t forget a trip on the Strathsspey steam railway to Boat of Garten and Broomhill (aka Glenbogle!) or the funicular train to the top of Cairngorm Mountain. Fun for kids includes the Highland Wildlife Park at Kincraig and the Landmark Centre at Carrbridge.
Golf: The Championship Course at Dalfaber Golf and Country Club is just a few minutes walk from Rowlands. A round costs approximately £60 and the course is just under 7,200 yards.
Ski: Cairngorm Mountain sits in the middle of Scotland's ski areas and is a 20 minute drive from Rowlands. It offers a great choice of runs for both skiers and boarders and when the snow is good, the off-piste slopes can be fantastic fun!
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Helen and Gary bought Rowlands Aviemore in 2004. We're winter sports enthusiasts and love walking and climbing in the mountains but we always had problems finding somewhere to stay as, at the time we had 2 dogs and they went everywhere with us. Spending so much time in the Cairngorms, we decided the time was right to buy our own home in the Highlands.
Why the Owner Chose Aviemore, Highland, UK:
We decided it was important that others had the opportunity to find comfortable well priced accommodation for their visits to Aviemore so we decided to let out the house for those who had similar interests and circumstances as us. As usual, nothing stays the same and along came our son in 2006 and now our focus is much more on family accommodation, and we still have our dog who keeps us company on our skiing/cycling/walking trips to the Cairngorms. We hope you enjoy Rowlands as much as we do!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Open plan living space downstairs, 4 bedrooms all with TV/DVD for rainy days including 2 ground floor bedrooms suitable for people with mobility difficulties, mountain views, watch the Strathspey Steam train chug by.......... yet only a 15 minute walk to the village centre. With skiing in the winter too, Aviemore is a year round resort appealing to families, groups and everyone in between!
