The Garden and 3 acres
The garden is mature with trees and established flower beds including apple trees and a rhubarb area. To the rear of the property there is a 1/4 of acre paddock for children to play football and explore or for horses to graze. At the rear of the paddock there is a wooden bridge which provides access up the back of the hill through woodland. If you are a keen walker, there is a 7 mile walk to Carrbridge by just walking over this wooden bridge and there are maps in Pilmuir showing shorter and long routes up the hill. The land around the cottage and outbuildingscon ists of grass, streams, trees and is a great 3 acre adventure play park. For the kids bring a fishing net and or wellies and they will have hours of fun.
For those that like home grown fruit and vegetables, depending on when you stay, you may see that there are several apple trees , rhubarb and herbs planted in the garden.
The outbuildings are steeped in history, as the cottage was the old coaching inn, but are now used by the owners. The wooden garage/stable can be used to store equipment should the shed in the paddock be full. In this shed you will also find a gas BBQ for use during the summer months as well as the odd football etc.
In 2013 a thatched seating area was created. This ‘hut’ has seating for six, lights, a heater and is a very sociable place, be it rain, snow or sun. For those better days there are outside table and chairs.
Last but definitely not least, the views from the garden are stunning and on clear days it is amazing which hills of the range can be seen. The added benefit is that during the winter one can
sit in the cottage and look up to the skiing range and decide whether to head up or not without getting in the car, as you can see (or not) the slopes.
