Description

Kincraig 1 mile. An appealing and unusual detached property in the isolated hamlet of Farr, 1 mile from the village of Kincraig, between Kingussie and Aviemore. In an elevated position overlooking Loch Insh on one side and with magnificent views of the Cairngorms from the other, this welcoming and extremely well equipped cottage offers superb accommodation, with an open fire and well placed windows to afford easy viewing of the plethora of bird and wildlife on the doorstep, including red squirrels, pine martins and ospreys. Sit and relax in the fabulous hot tub or enjoy outdoor activities in the Cairngorms National Park, relax in the wonderful surroundings or tour the area's many attractions and trails. Katchana is the perfect base.
Kincraig is an attractive Highland village midway between Kingussie and Aviemore, which is the hub of the skiing industry in Britain. Close to Loch Insh and Glenfeshie, in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park and with the Cairngorm Mountains as a backdrop, Kincraig offers an unrivalled choice of activities and pursuits for all ages and abilities all year round. Enjoy walking or climbing, fishing, riding, cycling or the watersports at Loch Insh where equipment hire and instruction is available. A wide variety of birds can be seen from the RSPB hide overlooking the flood plains of the Insh Marshes Reserve and at the nearby Highland Wildlife Park wolves, bison, red pandas, wildcats and arctic foxes can be seen.

‘We particularly enjoyed the house itself and the beautiful views surrounding the property. The hot tub was also a highlight of the trip, as well as being able to watch badgers, deer and birds outside the windows. The house itself was beautiful inside and out and we enjoyed spending time in the lounge area which overlooks the loch. The house is also ideally placed for activities in Aviemore and even closer at the Loch Insh watersport centre.’

‘The setting of this Lodge is breath taking, as was the location with good views over the Loch. The surrounding area is very peacefully located in a wood land with an abundance of wild life, some of which i. e. grouse you see coming right up to the dinning room window every day. The hot tub is a massive bonus with views over the Loch. The log fire was lovely on some of the cold nights, there is also a very good selection of games, videos/DVD's and books to keep us entertained. Will be definitely be returning. Enjoyed by all.’

‘I booked the property for my partners birthday and was hoping to just relax, and what we found on arrival was just stunning...The natural surrounding backdrops where something from picture postcards. Visiting the cairngorms and Ben Nevis was a first for us and just a simple drive away, the local food at the Bridge pub was delightful as a treat. Came back home to never think of going abroad again...now thats something we didn't expect! along with washing up for the first time whilst looking at the cairngorms...’

‘Katchana was everything we were hoping for. Nestled away from the hustle and bustle with awesome views of the snow covered peaks and over a beautiful loch. The owner of the property was easily accessible via phone and was very helpful during a wind storm where we lost power. It is close to Aviemore and the Cairngorms. A scottish friend of ours who visited us whilst we were there was so impressed by the property and its location that he will be booking it for family. The photographs are accurate of the property in the advertising. We loved it and think of our stay at Katchana as the highlight of our month long UK stay.’
