Glencoldon is a recently renovated cottage, with a Green Tourism Gold Award, in the village of Boat of Garten, 6 miles from Aviemore. It is ideal for 4-6 people. The large wild garden runs along the Speyside Way and has direct access to the Boat of Garten trails network, through Red Squirrel and Capercaillie conservation areas, and on to Loch Vaa. The village itself is on the River Spey and is very central for the huge range of outstanding activities, nature and wildlife opportunities, and other attractions in the Cairngorms National Park. One of the attractive features of the cottage is a large south-facing, bright, open sitting room and dining area with access to a large balcony. It also has bright east and south-facing bedrooms - 2 doubles (1 king-size) and 1 twin bedroom. The new kitchen, bathroom (+wc) and shower room (+wc) are all fully-equipped to modern high standards.

In addition to ensuring that guests have the most enjoyable and memorable visit possible, the owners believe that, in an area of such outstanding natural beauty, it is essential to achieve this whilst also minimising any impacts and delivering local nature, wildlife and community benefit where possible. In upgrading the cottage, we took the opportunity to build in efficiency, renewable energy and other sustainability options (eg. sunpipes, wildlife-friendly features); and make sure you will have all the information available to fully enjoy the beauty of the local area, surrounding highlights in the Cairngorms National Park and the wide range of activities.
