“Lovely self-catering cottage with a big comfortable bed. Perfect for a couples retreat as the name suggests. Wendy greeted us when we arrived and gave us some visiting tips. Clean quiet place with a private entrance that is well lit at night. We got our food supplies at local town Tomnavoulin. Wendy 's place is well equip for self catering. Perfect location. It's a short drive to the Scalan heritage trail. We also did Carn Daimh forest trail which is about 10min drive away. Glenlivet distillery is also nearby. Definitely worth a tour if you are a whisky fan.”
Auchriachan Farm sits just outside the Village of Tomintoul the Highest village in the Highlands, this is a family working farm. After Glamping ourselves we decided this would be an ideal situation to set up our very own Pods & give others the experience that we thoroughly enjoyed. Being in the Glenlivet Estate & also in the Cairngorm National Park there is lots to offer, walking, cycling, bird watching, skiing & not forgetting the National Scottish Drink "WHISKY" lots of Distilleries to Visit.
“Debbie and Andy are great hosts, fast responses to enquiries and questions. The pods are clean and warm with all the mod cons. The fresh eggs are a welcome treat too! Very close to the Malt whisky trail and a plethora of distilleries are within a short drive away. Great wee place!”

“My wife and me spent two nights at her cottage to hike in the national park. The place is a small cottage, where you get a small room. The bathroom is shared with the owner. The biggest reason for the 5* rating is Felicity herself, who is a very caring, helpful and interesting Person. Thanks again for the good times, Best”
