Meadowside Holiday Cottages were built in 1905 when it was used as a TB convalescing hospital. In 2002 the buildings were converted to a holiday development consisting of 12 holiday homes together with the owner’s house. The location is on an elevated rural site adjacent to the Highland Wildlife Park, approximately 2 miles from Kincraig. Views extend across the Wildlife Park on the south side and from the front magnificent views over Loch Insh & Insh Marshes to the Cairngorm Mountains.

Meadowside House is a traditional stone and slate built property with an abundance of character and detail such as high ceilings, open fire places and ornate cornicing. The property benefits from generous accommodation which is split over two floors and includes two lounges, dining room, kitchen, conservatory, reception area, WC and 4 bedrooms. The property has newly fitted handmade windows and doors as well as gas central heating and wood burning stove. The property enjoys an elevated position with spectacular views over the town to the Cairngorm Mountains and is within minutes of local amenities and facilities. 

The 3 cottages will only be sold for holiday usage, (not residential), and are suitable for holiday letting and second homes. There is a mixture of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom properties all very unique in their on way. All cottages will be sold furnished and are in good decorative order. Services are supplied by the site owner who organises the maintenance and up keep of the garden grounds and driveways. Water is from the mains and is metered and there is a septic tank for waste water. Electricity is supplied by way of meter.

These “Freehold” properties would make an ideal holiday home or buy to let investment cottage and should be an increasing investment rather than static holiday homes & leasehold holiday lodges.

Lewis Cottage – 2 Bedroom Semi 

Mull Cottage – 1 Bedroom Semi 

Scalpay Cottage – 1 Bedroom Semi 

This a very unique opportunity to purchase a traditionally built house and holiday letting business. Ideally the sale will include Meadowside house and all the cottages but we are willing to discuss with interested parties. There is also scope to purchase other cottages.


As the property is located in the centre of the complex there isn’t any specific garden areas but obviously there is a vast amount of communal ground. The owners suggested it is possible to fence of areas for private use but you still need to allow access for the other cottages. There is a private access road leading into the grounds which have a mixture of driveways, lawns and play areas which the site owner keeps well maintained.


South of Kincraig village, follow the signs to the Highland Wildlife Park.  Before the Park entrance, turn left into Meadowside Cottages.
