Rowlands is a 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.

About Gary Law
Helen and Gary bought Rowlands Aviemore in 2004. We're winter sports enthusiasts and love skiing/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.
Gary Law purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Gary Law chose Aviemore
We decided it was important that others had the opportunity to find comfortable/modern and 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!
What makes this Cottage unique
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 and downstairs bathroom as well, mountain views, watch the Strathspey Steam train chug by.......... yet only a 15 minute walk to the village centre. With lots of winter sports in the winter too, Aviemore is a year round resort appealing to families, groups and everyone in between!

Excellent property, great location
Aviemore is one of our favourite places to holiday in Scotland and this visit did not disappoint. We have stayed in several different properties and found Rowlands excellent, we would definately return to this property. A well equipped, comfortable and clean property. Our family complete with 2 adults, 3 children and 2 dogs all had plenty of space to enjoy with lots of facilities nearby. We were lucky enough to have snow for this visit and enjoyed a day on the slopes.
Great property! Highly recommended!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The owners have done a great job providing for all your needs. The house is spacious and very comfortable. It is also centrally located for exploring the area. We were very impressed with the property and would definitely stay there again! Highly recommended!
Sounds like you really had a great time staying at Rowlands & that you & the family found that the property had everything that you needed for a fab stay.
I'm glad that you explored the local area around Rowlands as there is lots to do & see from the doorstep, especially walks/cycles around the golf course & along by the River Spey!
Thanks for your really positive comments & recommendations.
Hopefully see you again in the near future.
All the best Gary

Lovely, comfotable and spacious base in Aviemore
Great property with all the necessary facilities and plenty of space for our party of 8. Only a mile from the centre of Aviemore and places to eat/shop even closer than that. Toys for kids and other nice touches.
Can't go wrong with Rowlands...
Great accommodation in a nice location. We loved the access to the trails by the golf course two minutes from the doorstep. The walk into Aviemore itself gives great views to the spectacular Cairngorms. There's plenty of room in Rowlands and we particularly enjoyed the open plan downstairs. We'll definitely be back.
I'm glad that you enjoyed the wonderful local trails from our doorstep, especially around the golf course alongside the River Spey. The open plan kitchen/lounge is great for groups/families as you experienced & enjoyed earlier this month & I'm very pleased that you have already booked for next year & that you are looking to stay at one of our cottages in the Lake District at Keswick. Thanks again for taking the time to write the review & speak to you soon. Gary
We looked for a dog friendly house.....
...and found the best we ever had!
The house has everything you need for a relaxed holiday. We stayed with our friends, in total four adults, one boy and Connor, the dog. The garden is great for dogs. The big gate can be closed. So the dog can stay outside without keep an eye on him. Inside you have a well set up kitchen, comfortable living area, good beds (we slept well).
Every morning and evening we did a big walk with Connor in the woods near by.
A Must is a visit in Tomatin Distillery and the visit in the brewary.
One thing we missed in the house, only one thing. Whiskyglasses!
Thanks Helen and Gary for the great time in Aviemore.
Thank you for your very kind & positive feedback. I already have some whisky glasses to put in the property so that guests can sample the whisky's at Rowlands. I'm glad that you all had a brill time it Rowlands & that you had a safe trip back to Germany.
Wir hoffen jedoch, dass sie bei Ihrer Reiseplanung weiterhilft

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!
