Whitebeam Cottage is a delightful detached cottage located in a peaceful yet accessible setting in the Glenlivet Estate, an area which covers the two broad straths of the Rivers Avon and Livet and lies between the Ladder and Cromdale hills, within the Cairngorm National Park. With open expanses of heather covered hills, woodlands and clear rushing burns, here lies arguably some of the finest scenery in the Grampian Highlands. This unspoilt landscape provides a wide range of leisure and sporting opportunities including fishing on the world famous Spey and Findhorn rivers, skiing at The Lecht and Cairngorm range, sailing and walking. Tomintoul (about 9 miles) provides useful amenities including shops, cafes, a public house, doctors’ surgery and primary school whilst Dufftown, about 14 miles to the north also offers a good range of day to day facilities.

There are a wide range of rural pursuits available locally including waymarked walks and cycle tracks, skiing at the nearby Lecht Ski and Activity Centre and golf at Grantown, Ballindalloch, Dufftown and Carrbridge.
