The Rowan lies in a popular setting in Boat of Garten in the Cairngorms National Park and is
perfectly positioned to enjoy the local area. Rothiemurchus and the Cairngorms Ski Centre are
nearby and offer activities in the surrounding countryside and on the mountain range throughout
the year. In addition, there are five excellent inland golf courses within a short driving distance of
the house and fishing is available on the world famous River Spey.

Boat of Garten is situated in the heart of Strathspey and has been a popular holiday destination
since Victorian times. The village has a shop with post office, primary school, hotel and golf course,
as well as a wide network of way-marked forest walks and the main station on the Strathspey
Steam Railway. Local attractions and facilities include mountain activities, cycling, skiing, water
sports, fishing and bird watching on the Abernethy and Insh Marshes RSPB reserves.
The nearby towns of Grantown-on-Spey and Aviemore offer more extensive services, including
secondary schooling, supermarkets, banks, swimming pools, independent retailers and restaurants. A mainline railway station and intercity bus routes are both available from Aviemore. Inverness is less than one hour’s drive to the north and provides all the services of a major city including its airport with regular links to the south and Europe.

The Rowan is an attractive traditional property retaining original features. Although in need of
some modernisation, the house has been well-maintained by the current owners and recent work
includes re-carpeting and interior painting this year and exterior painting in 2020.
The generous sun porch at the front of the house takes advantage of the south-facing setting and
from here there are doors to both the hall and sitting room. The dining room has potential for use
as a further bedroom, while the kitchen with oil fired AGA, pantry and utility room are at the rear.
Here there is also a garden room which gets the evening sun and is used as a summer dining room.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, one with an en suite dressing room, and a single
bedroom, as well as a bathroom and separate WC.
