“Another fantastic stay at Springburn!”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just returned from our second visit to the Kestrel cabin. Lovely cabin in peaceful surroundings and managed by Sheila, a very friendly and helpful owner. The three of us felt quite at home whilst there and the fenced in garden was ideal for letting the dogs out. The hot tub and DVD selection on offer allowed us to relax and have a bottle of wine at night and there were plenty of places to visit during the day!

Will definitely return to Springburn when we are next up that way! Previously recommended the cabins to a neighbour, who is set to return next month for her second holiday there. Overall, an extremely relaxing break enjoyed by all and perfect for our needs!

“Back Again!”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Sheila welcomed us as always with hugs and smiles. Making our return visit a real home from home. A suburb cabin with everything you could want and nice and toasty in the colder evenings..... mind you who wanted to leave the hot tub? This time we returned with the in laws for a family christening. Got the kids over for an afternoon and they fell in love with the place too and are already recommending to friends.
Thanks .... won't be long until we're back again x

“A magical peaceful place you will want to return to”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is the second time we have stayed at Sringburn kestrel log cabin. My children were given the choice this year to go abroad or return to Scotland and stay at Springburn.
Without hesitation they wanted to stay here again.
Shiela and Sandy are lovely friendly hosts who are so welcoming.
The location is so pretty and peaceful.
The hot tub has been a great addition, and is undercover . We liked the extras provided for it including a lovely fluffy towelling rope and white spa slippers.
The tea tray with shiela`s homemade bakes were also greatly enjoyed.
Would recommend going to the Cairngorms - so beautiful. Do not hesitate, let springburn cast a spell on you !!!
