Boat of Garten, Aviemore, Badenoch and Strathspey, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Holidays spent at Heath Cottage can be entirely relaxing affairs, just enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the natural country-side and the wildlife on your doorstep. Or they can be action-packed and exhilarating. It’s your choice. And doing both is perfectly acceptable.

The Boat as our lovely village is known, is set amongst heather clad hills and native woodland within the Cairngorms National Park. Abundant wildlife, magnificent scenery, many sporting and leisure activities and a traditional Highland welcome are all to be found here.
