Lovely and quiet, excellent location for walking.

We've stayed at this delightful cottage several times now it never disappoints. If you want a complete escape from the stresses of modern life, then this is perfect. It was quiet with plenty of room and you can go straight into the forest for walks mountain biking. The birds wildlife are Scotlands best. The clear sky with zero light pollution is fabulous for stargazers. A perfect setting for all sorts of outdoor pursuits plenty of places to visit. Enjoy!

The cottage was very well equipped and in a marvellous location. Very secluded with lots of great walks straight from the door. The photos do not do this property justice. I would highly recommend this property and we are already looking forward to going back.

A beautiful and secluded location. The cottage was comfortable and warm. Sky TV in the lounge and the bedroom was an extra bonus. Lots of wildlife in the garden and good location for exploring the Cairngorms and the Fort William areas.

The wood burner in the cottage and the location of the cottage. The anteroom for taking off boots and coats was excellent. The cottage was well thought out. I would happily stay there again.

On arrival at the Cottage we were stunned by just how beautiful this place was, I have to say the pictures on the Sykes Website simply don't do the place justice. Owner was very helpful, we had contacted her on the Thursday to discuss Key pick up and also asked if the Cottage had Sky as we were wanting to watch the Boxing on our first night, she advised it did and arranged for the pay per view boxing for us which we thought was over and above our expectations. I have nothing negative to say at all about the Cottage, it was a pleasure to return too after a day out. Kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need, Sitting Room is very comfortable and cosy with a Log Burning Fire, we didn't get to use the Fire as the weather we had was amazing, was not expecting to be sat outside in Shorts and Vests but I'm not complaining. Bathroom is all newly fitted out with a bath and separate shower and the bedrooms are both a good size with comfortable beds. Lots of Wildlife visit the property garden, lots of different Birds and if your lucky you'll get to see the Pine-marten's that visit, we left food for them each day but they will only come for it if your inside. All in all this is a fantastic Cottage amongst the most stunning scenery and for the price you pay for the week it is a Bargain. Would recommend to anyone..!!!

The cottage is in a secluded forest clearing away from everything else. Very peaceful, it was a real shame to have to come away. After a stressful couple of months at work it was just what the doctor ordered. There are some really nice hill walks right on the door step too and the mountain bike adventure park a mile ot two up the road. I would be wary of the village shop which is a couple of miles away by the bridge, as I think they have "special" pricing for tourists...

Feagour cottage is, as advertised, tucked away in a lovely secluded forest location. And that is its only problem: finding it! The owner's directions simply state turn left 3.5 miles from the a road junction: there's no helpful sign at the start of this anonymous forest access road, only those for Balfour-Beatty! Sykes helpfully give you a postcode centred on Kinlochlaggan, a few miles away and even more helpfully a grid reference for the postcode centre, not the cottage: what use is that? (And it's still incorrect on their site, despite feedback!!) For reference, the cottage is actually located at Nn571903 and smack bang on the east-west watershed. Once you track it down (only took a phone call, 30 min or so and 10 miles of extra driving...) it's a clean, cosy, quite spacious place, with a well-equipped kitchen, even if somewhat idiosyncratically. Between the heated porch/mudroom and superheated bathroom (underfloor) we found it great as a base for wintry walks on Speyside, as there was no trouble in drying our hiking gear overnight. Indeed, you can do 2 waymarked walks right from the door, one to the fascinating Pictish fort on the hill opposite and the other to an abandoned village site. For shopping we found the new Co-op in Newtonmore, 14 miles away on the route to aviemore, to be a good bet. Unsurprisingly, the little convenience store in Laggan is pricey in comparison. So in summary: best bits- warm, cosy and quiet; worst bit- finding it (but you only have to do that once!)

we arrived and entered the cottage and imediately felt at home. It was warm and cosy. It was very well equipped and comfortable. We did have a problem with the main oven, it was not working and still not fixed when we left which was a pain as we took meals with us and had to waste 3 as they could not be done in microwave.... the underfloor heating in bathroom had no instructions and the heated towel rail in bathroom did not work. We found there was no where to hang your bathrobe in the bathroom. There was also no wardrobe in bedrooms, just one small clothes rail in the main bedroom. Putting aside these issues, the cottage is amazing, so quiet and peaceful, we fed the birds and loved watching them, especially the 9 grouse that turned up twice a day, and the hooting owl at night. There is something living in the loft space and it knaws and scratches now and then, but it does not come into the house so no worries just part of being in the countryside ! All in all an amazing restful week, The Highland Folk Museum was great, so was the Highland Wildlife Park.

We stayed here for a week in may 2016. The cottage is absolutely perfect in every way. Stunning peaceful location but not too far from civilisation. The weather was amazing while we were there so we made use of the barbecue a few times and were able to sit outside until late. There is everything you need if you plan on cooking and eating in. There are also miles of forestry tracks to explore. The only downside for us was the fact that dogs weren't allowed as it would be ideal for dog owners

This is a very nice cottage, well presented and very well maintained with all the comforts you need. The kitchen equipment could do with a review though, we bought a new frying pan as those provided were beyond use. Nice location with great access to organised activities or just for exploring. We kept the bird feeding station well stocked as the variety of birds was superb - a real highlight.

Had a wonderful week at Laggan. Enjoyed the walks, reading by the fire, and the local coffee place (10 minutes away). The waterfall 2 minutes from the property is breathtaking. Aviemore is a great day trip with lots of lovely walks and the a great farm shop for local food and lunch. I'd definitely go back.

Extremely comfortable cottage finished to a high standard and everything you would need is there apart from internet access /Wi-Fi there is none which suited us also mobile phone reception is fine. Cottage sits on its own and is very well situated in this beautiful area. There are numerous walks if wanted straight from the front door. We went for a complete chill out week and that's what we got. If you want to get away from the fast pace of the world then this is the place to go!! Would definitely recommend to anyone and would love to go back!!
