Aviemore is a popular, year round holiday or lifestyle destination, set within some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery in the heart of the Highlands.  Located within the Cairngorm National Park, with its spectacular mountains, wildlife filled glens and the renowned River Spey. A thriving local population is boosted by thousands of visitors, thanks to the diverse range of leisure and sporting activies available.

Hill walking, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing, golf, shooting and of course, ski-ing and snowboarding are just some of the many activities on offer.  The Badenoch & Strathspey area has produced more Olympic athletes per head of population than anywhere else in Britain. Testament to it being the perfect year round adventure playground.

Aviemore is on the main rail line from Inverness/London and is just off the A9 giving easy access to all parts of the UK. Inverness Airport is approximately 40 miles away with regular daily flights to London and other UK destination.

Gardeners Cottage is an attractive detached bungalow, located in a sheltered, hillside setting in the small hamlet of Lynwilg, just off the A9 trunk road on the Southern outskirts of Aviemore.  In good condition, the property sits within enclosed garden grounds, close to the Allt na Criche burn and surrounded by woodland.

The property, which was part of the former Kinrara Estate, has never previously been sold individually, therefore offers a rare opportunity to purchase a property in this area. It benefits from UPVC double glazing, oil central heating and wood burning stove in the lounge.  All the rooms are of generous proportions and enjoy woodland views, with the bedrooms having built-in wardrobes and storage cupboards and two of which have en-suite shower rooms.  As well as a large utility room, the property also has an extremely useful drying room/store accessed from outside.

The enclosed garden grounds are mainly laid to gravel with ample parking for several vehicles, lawned areas, two timber garden sheds and concrete hardstanding, suitable for kennels, shed or garage.


The garden grounds are enclosed with a mixture of post and wire and timber fencing with lawned areas.  There is gravel parking to both the front and side of the property. Two timber garden sheds. The oil tank is situated at one side and there is an outside tap at the front.


Mains electricity & water.  Septic tank drainage.


Currently Band D (£1,791 pa 2021/22), including water rates.  Discounts are available for single home occupancy.
