Toberaie, Nethy Bridge, Cairngorm National Park, Sleeps 6, Wood Burner, Pets Welcome

Toberaie is a traditional detached highland cottage located in a secluded position not far from the village of Nethy Bridge, in the Cairngorm National Park. The property located on the Dorback Sporting Estate enjoys unrivalled panoramic views to the Cairngorm Mountains and Strathspey. Its position makes it an ideal base from which to explore the National Park further.

On entering the property a central hallway leads you to the lounge at one end and the dining room at the other, both rooms benefit from having wood burning stoves, in the dining room this is housed in the original fireplace, a particular striking feature. Off the dining room the small kitchen can be found, traditional in style, but having all the usual kitchen appliances that you would expect. From here access can be obtained into the garden.

The lounge is furnished with comfortable sofas and benefiting from a wood burner is an inviting room to sit and relax in after a day exploring. From the hall stairs lead upstairs to the three bedrooms; a master with a double, and two others both with twin beds. The bedrooms feature traditional combed ceilings and the front ones enjoy views to the Braes of Abernethy. A bathroom on the ground floor completes the facilities.

The National Parks has something for everybody no matter what your outdoor pursuit, extreme sports, sailing areas, castles and many areas for walking, mountain biking and climbing. It is also home to a diverse range of rare wildlife and one of the largest tracts of woodland in the UK. A couple of particular popular choices for days out are the Cairngorm Mountain Railway or the activities at the Rothiemurchus estate near Aviemore. For bird watching the RSPB reserve is located eight miles away at Loch Garten, where the Ospreys breed and for rail enthusiasts step back in time and enjoy a trip on the Strathspey Railway that runs from Broomhill Station to Aviemore.  

Further afield the whisky country of Strathspey, famous as the home of many of Scotland’s top distilleries can be found. Take the Whisky Trail and visit six of the regions distilleries and the Speyside Cooperage where you can actually see the barrels being made. Guided tours are available and many give you the chance to sample Scotland’s “Water of Life”, a memorable day out for the whole family, just ensure that you are not doing the driving.

If you want a peaceful holiday away from it all then Toberaie is the cottage for you. The only neighbours are the deer and pheasants. The views of the mountains are to die for and the cottage itself was very roomy and comfortable, and very well equipped. We would certainly recommend it.

Beautiful, cosy cottage in a remote location. Surrounded by wildlife and mountains. It snowed for the first few days of our stay and the landscape transformed into a white wonderland. Close to the Cairngorms for skiing it was a great place for a family to stay. Beds comfy and the fires very welcoming. Would recommend a 4 wheel drive to access the property if snowing in winter. Our Christmas was made special by staying at Toberaie.

We have stayed here before and love the peace of the cottage. There's a newt pond, lovely walks and it's so good to curl up around the stoves at night. The stars are amazing, as is looking at the mist below in the glens in the morning. We'll be back!

Had the most memorable short break to celebrate my parents Ruby anniversary. Made all the more special as Toberaie was once our family home for 3 generations. Toberaie is in one of the most beautiful parts of the Cairngorm National Park and an ideal base for a relaxing family break or as a base to tour the many places of interest around. The house is equipped with all that you may require and furnished in a cosy fashion. We all had a brilliant time and plan to return again for a family break.
