Alpine Cottage in secluded setting

Inshriach Alpine Nursery is situated 4 miles south of Aviemore on the B970, and is definitely off the beaten track, although still within easy reach of major road, rail and air links, as well as the many facilities in the area.

The property is bounded on three sides by mature trees that help shield us from the elements during the winter whilst providing accommodation during the summer for the multitude of resident birds and their migratory cousins.  

Visitors may wish to wander around the garden on the site, and enjoy the diversity of plants that flourish here.


Accommodation: 

The cottages were built in 1950 as accommodation for two nursery employees and their families.  The traditional brick building is divided into two units, imaginatively designated as Cottage No. 1 and Cottage No. 2. 

Each unit has two twin bedrooms, 1 double bedroom, kitchen, living/dining room and a bathroom. 

Each kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, washing machine/tumble dryer, microwave oven and fridge.  

Each bathroom has a bath and electric shower.

Heating is by electricity with a combination of night storage and panel heaters.  An open fireplace adds an extra comfort factor in cold weather.


The cottages are tucked away at one end of the Nursery, well away from the madding crowd.
