A perfect place for a family get together, there was room for everyone. Excellent and will definitely book it again if we were coming back to Aviemore.

An absolutely fantastic property, very spacious and light. We all loved it, including the little ones. Would absolutely recommend the place and be delighted to stay there again. The property made our holiday. We all looked forward to coming back to it and it was a very easy place to relax.

This was a beautiful house with a large kitchen and warm rooms. Everything we needed was supplied to us. We would definitely recommend this house.

A very spacious and comfortable cottage within a walking distance off the Aviemore main-shopping area and very close to local bus stops. Good for both the groups of hikers and the skiers/snowboarders, with plenty of room to dry clothes, 2 showers, a bath, 4 bedrooms for up to 8 people, huge kitchen and a very nice living room, both with fire-stoves for extra warmth and comfort. Also books, DVDs, tabletop games to spend an evening. And some very beautiful views from windows as well. Been coming to Aviemore every winter for a few years now, for the mountain. Sadly, it was closed due to heavy snow and strong winds. Thankfully, the cottage had everything to keep us very comfortable, and the area have plenty of "poor-weather walks" to occupy restless skiers/snowboarders with no mountain available. First time staying at Glencanisp. Very probably, that will stay there again next year.

Stayed at Glencanisp for a week in July. The cottage is great for a large group such as ours ( 3 couples with 2 children aged 6 and 19 months). The cottage (I'd call it a house) has all that you require for a stay and was very clean when we arrived. An 8 minute walk brings you into the town with plenty of shops and restaurants. Would I stay there again? I'm not sure due to the traffic noise in the early mornings. If you can sleep through that then, yes, it's a good place to stay.

Our stay at Glencanisp was really good. The decor and the amenities at the property was as described and was faultless. The location is close to all attractions as well as local services.

This is a fantastic holiday home that has everything you could ever need; from a slow cooker (handy for having meals ready when coming home from a long day sightseeing) to the games, toys and books for children. The accommodation is very spacious and comfortable. I was especially impressed with the beds, most comfortable bed I have EVER slept in. Glencanisp is only a 5-10 minute walk from main town centre with lots of nice bars, restaurants and shops. All in all I would highly recommend this property.

Stayed here in March with a group of 8 as part of a hillwalking group. The cottage is traditional, and well furnished with plenty of space to eat, cook or relax together. All the bathrooms are modern and the kitchen is well equipped. It also has drying facilities in the utility room. Plenty of restaurants and food nearby if you don't want to cook. We ALL really enjoyed staying here and would definitely come back again. The weather this week was also stunning, which helped!
