“Fabulous stay in wildlife location...”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed at Ron's place for three nights with my elderly parents, my partner sand myself are Scottish but my parents live in Germany, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Ron provided great communication before and during the stay, was very helpful and tips for local walks to Loch Insh were very helpful. Local wildlife is amazing, we saw numerous birds and red squirrels right in front of the lounge window. We recommend the (free, with a worthwhile donation), Highland Folk Museum, just south of Kincraig. The weather was mixed so couldn't use the outdoor space much but it looks fab with BBQ etc. We made a fire with real wood logs each night which added to the ambience. I had a slight mishap on the morning of departure and Ron was very gracious about it. We'll check to see whether we can be back.

Thomas. Delighted that you all had such a great time despite the weather. Your reported "mishap" was no big deal & has already been rectified at little cost so you won't even be charged. Of course you will be most welcome to return any time. Thanks for being such honest and good guests.

“Perfect vacation family friendly”
Reviewed 7 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

By the time we reached Sanger House, we had walked all over London and Edinburgh with four young kids and we were ready to just relax. The Sanger House fit the bill perfectly. The pictures above are well done, but it's even better in person. The property itself is gorgeous, I could go on and on how beautiful it is. The house is perfect and immaculate. Our four kids(7-13) enjoyed running around outside, there is even a little hill in the backyard with paths!! There is so much greenery, you can't even see your neighbors! You would have to stand on the hill to see one house. When you walk in the house, there is a proper foyer with ample space for, keys, shoes and jackets. The living room is very comfortable and the sofas look new. The dining area easily seats six, but you could squeeze in eight for a cozy dinner:) the kitchen looks new. It's a fabulous kitchen to cook in. It's fully stocked with enough plates, silverware, glasses, even baking needs! They have both stainless pots and pans and non stick. The best part about the kitchen is the huge window over the sink. It made washing dishes on vacation absolutely pleasurable. The dishwasher is a Miele and now I want one just like it:) The three bedrooms are spacious and wonderful. The shower/bathtub is American style. There is a DVD blue ray player, books, toys for the kids, and a table top fooseball game. My kids had a blast!
On the way to the house we stopped at the House of Bruar for groceries. We were able to pick up meats and a few veggies, and surprisingly gluten free pasta and gluten free, dairy free cookies! We were able to get more food at the Tessco and the Co-operative grocery close by, they were much cheaper too. In fact, the Tessco had a section for gluten free, dairy free items! One day, we went for a hike in the park, it was so beautiful, I highly recommend it. My husband and kids walked down to the lake, that is very close, they even ate breakfast at the cafe.
We can't wait to go back and explore more of the highlands, but really, I slept so peacefully... I would go back just to get a refreshing sleep:) I really do hope we will be able to go back, my oldest is ready to pack up and move there:)

Many thanks for this Nikki. We were so pleased to learn how much you and the family enjoyed everything. It's a very long way from Missouri to the Scottish Highlands but we'd love to welcome you back. We promise you even more than a good sleep! Best, Ron

“Like having your own place in Cairngorms National Park”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had the opportunity to spend 3 nights at the Sangar. After spending a week in hotels in London and Edinburgh it was so nice to spend a few nights in a real home. You should have no reservations about booking Ron's place. First off the home is beautiful and very clean. It was like we were staying at a friends place. The property is amazing and feels very private. The home has everything you could want and my wife loved the kitchen. The view from the kitchen widow is pretty amazing. Everything worked perfectly and was amply supplied. A very good location with so much to do within a short drive or even walking distance. Thanks Ron. We very well might be back!

The sangar is a lovey place to stay, it is located in a quiet cul de sac, and offers fantastic views of the mountains. The garden is a peaceful and beautiful place to sit and relax, with the only noise being the birds. The sangar also has brilliant facilities that we enjoyed such as the fire.

Ron and Liz were a fantastic host and couldn't fault them in any way. They are lovely, kind and good hearted people. They provided alot of useful information regarding the area and places to visit, they also couldn't have been more attentive, if you have any questions they would reply promptly with an answer and you could ask them anything.

“Wonderful stay in a homely house in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed 8 May 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Enjoyed a great short break with the kids at The Sangar in the Cairngorms. The house was very homely and had all the facilities we needed. Ron was also a great host and provided lots of info to help us get the most out of the trip. Stunning scenery in the locality and fab walks out the back door. Close by lake side restaurant was a hit. Enjoyed day excursions to the Highland Wildlife Park and up the mountain on the tram. Lots of walking and cycling in the area too. Very enjoyable holiday.

It was a long way to come from Somerset Ed so I was delighted you and the family had such a good time. I realise many folk can't get away for more than 2 - 3 days but I always recommend 3 - 4 minimum as there is so much to do and see in the area. Many thanks for your helpful review. You'll be welcome back any time.
