“Better than the excellent reviews!”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Walking upstairs from the downstairs bedroom is a daily delight. Arriving in the huge kitchen / dining / living space one is constantly amazed by the views across Strathspey ... for miles and miles both up and down the valley. The handy binoculars allow for great close-ups of brown hate in the field directly opposite.

The accommodation is very well planned and maintained. It's comfortable and cosy.

So glad we managed to get a cancellation and get here. Will be returning.

We couldn't be happier that you had a great stay at Signal Box, thank you for taking the time to share your experience there with us all. Waking up to those wonderful views sounds incredible, what a way to start the day! We certainly hope you return to enjoy the place again in the very near future.

“Cosy and full of charm”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Signal Box - where to start! It' s a beautifully appointed holiday home - just right for a couple. Cosy and comfortable - perfect to come home to on a cold day. The cottage owner Isla has prepared it as though it was her own home - full of lovely little touches that just make your stay special. From the well stocked kitchen ( every implement you could want) to the bathroom with fluffy towels and scented hand wash ( and underfloor heating) - she has considered everything.
The cottage is well situated for keen walkers. Don't miss the the Wildcat walk and take advantage of all the hills nearby. Well situated for Pitlochry, Aviemore, Inverness. Thanks Isla - who else would spoil you with flowers and a chocolate cake on arrival.

“Brilliant little gem”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Isla provided a thoughtful welcome by leaving out chocolate cake and milk for our arrival. The signal box is easily found and is a great base to explore the surrounding area. Although the trains are quite frequent, they're not a distraction and the lovely views from the cottage of the sheep, lambs, bunnies and Cairngorm mountain range are great to come back to after days out. The cottage was really homely and my other half loved using the wood burning stove in the evenings. Everything is provided. Would definitely stay here again if we revisit the area.

Liked best: The shower!
Liked least: The fact that I didn't get to use the sauna due to me having a sprain that didn't need heat!

“AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Stayed here for a week at the end of November, it truly is amazing. Location is just perfect with amazing views, the accommodation is finished to the highest specification. The log fire is simply fantastic, with all logs provided for your stay. The signal box is so homely and comfortable we just didn't want to leave! This place is a real gem, totally unique and most definitely the best self catering holiday home we have ever stayed in, this fabulous place is without a doubt 5*
The home made chocolate cake and pretty flowers waiting for us upon just confirmed to us that this place is as wonderful as all the other reviewers have said! Can't wait to cone back next year. Book now you won't regret it.
