Fantastic break in Rothiemurcus .

  • 5 of 5

Talisker forest lodge and stunning weather combined to give us a fantastic week .we honestly could not have had a better break .

The cottage has everything you need ,it really is a home from home . the back garden area is wildlife heaven with red squirrels appearing every day, a resident roe deer is also a regular ,woodpecker being another.

If your thinking of booking think no more .just book you wont be disappointed.

Regular communication from Angus the owner is another plus point.

We will be back.

Peaceful and fabulous views into the forest from the window.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, the silence at night and the red squirrels that come to the windows in the morning.

Well positioned for Aviemore and the CairnGorm mountain.

Very enjoyable week in comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 6 had a very enjoyable stay in Talisker Lodge. Two ensue bedrooms and an additional family bathroom for children were a real bonus. Convenient for all activities and venues while being quiet and secluded.Sitting area at back looking into forest ideal for bbq evenings. Seeing a variety of birds including a woodpecker feeding in the garden every day, red squirrels climbing the trees and a pine martin was very entertaining. We would definitely recommend a visit and will be back.
