First and foremost Glenarder is a holiday home, a calming retreat, a place of rejuvenation and celebration ....therefore, the order of the day is comfort, warmth, minimum fuss and most importantly authentic to the Scottish Highland living experience. We are proud to say Glenarder Cottage offers you luxury accommodation and furnishings while giving you a relaxed style and warmth to the home environment - often not found in holiday rentals. We have designed it with groups in mind, providing two sitting areas which allows for everyone to have their own space (and TV if wanted). We aim to provide the basics to get you going such as coffee, milk, tea etc as well as a great basic pantry to use. The interior design is authentic to the Highlands and respectful of the cottage's character. It has been lovingly renovated and designed by ourselves, we come from a luxury fashion industry background and this is reflected in the selection of exceptional furnishings and finishes to make your stay special. Much thought has been put into anticipating your needs, providing warmth and comfort but also keeping it practical for holidays and Highland life. We have selected pieces from our travels around the world as well as as many local products as possible such as lovely Johnston's of Elgin Chair and a highland door curtain using local tweed made only 2km from Glenarder. The cottage was renovated in 2015 and features a large farmhouse kitchen, fantastic for entertaining, dinners round the table, or quite nights by the fire after a day outdoors. The kitchen and utility room has been designed by DeVol Kitchens, renowned for their -beautifully simple- handcrafted kitchens, an ode to Modern Farmhouse design. Bedrooms feature new beds which are luxuriously made up in exceptional linens and bedding to ensure great sleeps. The lounge features a wood burning fireplace, a large comfy Harris Tweed Couch and lovely views to the front of the property. Outside we have set up a lovely patio area complete with a outdoors fire pit, a bbq, picnic table and seating. We even provide the BBQ coals to get you started. Please see photo descriptions for further information about specifics and layout. Please review bedding and bedroom layout to make sure it works for you.More
