Pine bank chalets are self catering, beautiful pine lodges set just 5mins outside the heart of Aviemore town. Pub close by and a 5 min walk from the train station!
The 2 of us stayed for 2 nights in the cabin called 'Nethy'. A basic one bedroomed cabin. We were very pleased with the quick collection of the key from reception - totally hassle free! We had already paid in full prior to arrival though... £126 for 2nts.
Parking was not a problem although the cabin facing us seemed empty at the time. I felt if the other cabins would have been full, parking would have been an issue! It felt like we were the only people staying in any of the chalets as saw nobody for our whole stay - BLISS, ha.
We dont feel we picked one of the best cabins, as the train track was very close behind the cabin, a road 150m to the side of it and the noise of the trains was slightly annoying to be honest till quite late at night. This didnt bother us enough to complain as we werent there all day as we were out in the mountains and very tired when we returned.
Cairngorm national park is very close by - 10/15min drive! You can park at the ski centre free of charge and there is lots of options for great days walking on the mountains. We headed for Ben macdui and Cairngorm!
Self catering facilities were excellent. Fully equipped kitchen, cooker, hob, fridge, microwave... Bathroom was lovely and clean and quite spacious.
All in all we had a lovely time and would love to return but to a different cabin, maybe with a view too!
