The Old Kennels Ref: SJJS

The Old Kennels sits above Tomintoul, reputedly the highest village in the Highlands, with spectacular views across to the mountains beyond. This single-storey, traditionally built holiday cottage was where the gundogs were housed when the area was owned by the Dukes of Richmond and Gordon. It is now part of the Glenlivet Crown Estate with its series of trails and wildlife programmes organised by the estate ranger in Tomintoul. The property has been refurbished and modernised whilst maintaining its traditional atmosphere with a farmhouse kitchen and modern bathroom, and open fires in the living room and master bedroom. It has a large garden on two levels and a separate vegetable garden where guests can pick their own produce. It is an ideal family base to explore both Speyside to the west and Dee and Donside to the east, the latter by way of the spectacular Tomintoul to Cock Bridge road. Tomintoul itself, which is less than a mile away, now has three craft shops and a number of eating places, one of which is the spacious and atmospheric lounge bar of the Glenavon Hotel which provides excellent family bar lunches.
Situated within the Cairngorm National Park, there is a wide variety of sporting activity to be enjoyed. Fishing is available at all levels from the local River Avon and its tributaries to the nearby Spey. The holiday cottage is within easy reach of golf courses of all standards including the championship course at Aviemore and the Donald Steel designed 9-hole course at nearby Ballindalloch Castle. There is superb local walking and dogs are welcomed in the main rooms. The Speyside Way spur starts in Tomintoul and the Cairngorm mountains offer outstanding climbing and hill walking. The Extreme Dream indoor climbing wall at Aviemore, also with an exciting outdoor programme, is very welcoming to all standards. Visitors can go dolphin watching by boat off the Moray Coast an hour away and explore the magnificent beaches. The Tomintoul trekking centre at St Bridget’s farm is a BHS approved centre with animals and treks to suit all standards. The cottage is in the centre of the Whisky Trail with the renowned Whisky Castle shop in Tomintoul and an excellent visitors’ centre at The Glenlivet.
