Nestled in the Cairngorms National Park, The Steading (Scottish for converted Barn) was recently converted to a high standard. It provides a spacious, light and cosy cottage base with which to explore the local area. Extremely warm, with fabulous fire in the lounge and sky lights in all the rooms. The cottage provides easy access to mountain biking, Hill walking and climbing. The views of the National Park are stunning and the local countryside is home to many moorland birds and wildlife.
“Highly reactive on any request, Vicky and Matt have answered very fast to my needs, notably smaller logs for the fire. Comfort of the cottage is outstanding, insulation at the last standards, warm water, pressure in the shower, clear instructions for everthing and definitely a lovely place to stay. Do not hesitate to stay at Catlodge 'The steading' in the winter like I did. Heating is perfect (after the first evening), fire is warm enough with little support of the electric heaters. Logs and kindley can be found in Laggan and in Newtonmore easily, though quite expensive but I considered it a basic and priority need. Landscape is outstanding (and with snow just fantastic), particularly scenery from the bed through the large door-window at sun rise in the very morning and more surprising, the stars through the Velux in the ceiling. No light pollution in this place of Scotland, thus incredible stars. And silence, silence, silence. Wake up with the sheets and the fazants. Nice walks without having to make a lot of kilometers by car. One of my most extraordinary trips ever, 2-hour trip from Edinburgh airport..”
The studio is part of the accommodation provided at Uvie Farm: you might see Highland Cattle outside your window and wild red deer across the river, and you can walk round the farm or find instant access to the hills. It's a really cosy self-contained little appartment with its own kitchen and showerroom. It's on a working farm breeding pedigree Highland Cattle in the stunning Spey Valley (part of Cairngorms National Park). Grid Reference NN 794909 Grid Reference (6 figure) NN670947
“Don't know where to start with this review. Went to the farm, not really knowing what to expect, but was not disappointed in any way. We've stayed in a lot of Airbnb let's and can genuinely say that this experience was the best we've had and the host was incredibly hospitable. Everyone at the farm was really friendly, helpful and informative in regards to our questions about the cattle. The studio is a well equipped little space that would be a perfect stay for a single person or couple, looking for a cosy get away. Can't find any faults with it at all, so if you're thinking about going to this place, just do it. You won't regret it. The location is absolutely stunning. Waking to a view like that, was a welcome change to our normal day to day. The area has incredible scenery and plenty of wildlife to see. The cattle....... Just amazing. Lost for words on how gentle and affectionate they are. We've not seen any other places where you can get so up close to the cattle and even be able to enjoy getting a hairy coo cuddle. It was a joy to spend with them and we were sad to leave the farm and cattle behind. We enjoyed our stay that much, we are already working out when we can go again.”
We are situated in Roy Bridge (15 mins outside Fort William) close to amenities and a short walk to the train station. The perfect base to explore the Highlands. The room has a private entrance totally separate from the main house. The en-suite bathroom is located downstairs. Upstairs there is a loft bedroom with double bed along with tea and coffee making facilities, tv with Netflix and fridge. The perfect base for all outdoor pursuits with maximum privacy in a beautiful, peaceful setting.
“The Cubby was sparkling clean and super cute. It looks like it’s brand new or had been recently renovated. It was perfect for the two of us while traveling through Scotland. Mylene was a great host, and very responsive. Check in and out was a breeze, and she recommended a great restaurant just a minute away. Couldn’t be happier, would 100% recommend!”
