Large detached self-catering Holiday Home sleeps eight by Nethy Bridge near Aviemore Inverness-shire Scotland

Large, detached, self-catering Holiday Home, sleeps eight, by Nethy Bridge, near Aviemore, Inverness-shire, Scotland. In an oasis of peace and tranquillity, this spacious house, Rymore Wood, stands serenely in 20 acres of beautiful Scots pine forest interspersed by expanses of wild heather and moorland – a nature reserve, and a real haven for wildlife enthusiasts, cyclists and walkers alike. Set in seclusion and reached via a good country lane, this wonderful holiday property is light and airy, with plenty of large windows to enjoy the surrounding woodland views. It boasts its own large, south-facing garden with a patio and barbecue, ideal for al fresco dining on long summer nights. Just along the road is the vast Abernethy Forest Reserve with Loch Garten, its RSPB Osprey Centre and look-out point with endless woodland and moorland walks. Fringed by heather-clad and often snow-capped mountains, the glorious Spey Valley with its meandering river, numerous lochs and pretty villages is wonderful for outdoor enthusiasts, and Rymore Wood is an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful area.
