Gordonhall Farmhouse is in a spectacular setting in the Cairngorms National Park, close to the Highland village of Kingussie and with spectacular views to the Historic Environment Scotland Ruthven Barracks, RSPB Insh Marshes Nature Reserve and across the Spey Valley. The Cairngorms National Park was established in 2003 to protect its beautiful and unspoilt landscape and promote a balance between nature and the community. Local attractions include mountain activities, cycling, skiing, water sports, fishing and bird watching on the Abernethy and Insh Marshes RSPB reserves. Aonach Mor (Ben Nevis), Rothiemurchus, and Aviemore Ski and Activity Centres are nearby and offer recreation throughout the year, while Kingussie and Newtonmore both have excellent 18 hole golf courses.Kingussie has a good range of local shops and amenities including a secondary school and main line railway station. There are supermarkets in both Newtonmore and Aviemore, while Inverness has all the facilities of a modern city including its airport with regular flights to the south and Europe. The current owners purchased Gordonhall in 2015 at which time the house had been uninhabited for about 11 years. At this stage, the property was fully renovated, for which all necessary consents are in place, to create an outstanding traditional house where original features have been retained or restored and complemented by modern building techniques and finishes. Clever design has created a spacious interior including the striking dining kitchen with its double height ceiling, exposed beams and mezzanine floor, while wood lined walls and exposed timber floors, reflecting the ruggedness of the landscape, are softened with high quality fabrics and fittings. Gordonhall Farmhouse is currently a successful holiday let, managed through the owners’ website www.houseofdanu.co.uk. Area restrictions on holiday lets are limiting new lets coming to the market Non-Statutory Short-Term Let Control Area Planning Policy. As a result, it is likely that demand will increase with benefits for established and guarnateed holiday lets such as Gordonhall. The option exists to purchase the goodwill of the business by separate negotiation and the potential for the holiday letting business to continue to be managed through House of Danu.
