“Birch Cottage” offers a peaceful, rural location on the edge of Aviemore, while providing easy access to the surrounding attractions. The property is set in 1/3 of an acre plot in a spectacular, sought after, location. The cottage was originally built in 1894 and has an abundance of character. It includes 2 bedrooms, double lounge area with a stone built fireplace with wood burning stoves and extended kitchen area with a stable door to the rear. The property could easily be brought up to a more modern finish or you could simply invest and develop on the amazing land that comes with the property.

The property would be perfect for both residential and holiday letting purposes. This site has amazing potential to either renovate the current property or possibly develop new property subject to planning.


There is a large lawned area at the front of the house and a further enclosed area at the rear which houses the greenhouse and substantial timber cabin. There are also flower beds and mature trees surrounding the property. Private right of way from the gate at the side of the property leading to Rothiemurchus Visitor Centre.


Floor coverings, curtains and light fittings. Other items may be available by separate negotiation. The property may be purchased mostly furnished.    


From the roundabout at the South end of Aviemore, head for Cairngorm Mountain. At Rothiemurchus, pass the Rothiemurchus Centre and take the second exit on the left.  The property is the third property on the left with a wooden farm style gate.


Mains electricity & water, septic tank drainage.
