J & F Fraserburgh

We have had another great time.  The wildlife has been at its best including the red squirrels in the morning and badger watching at 11.30pm (they love the peanut butter butties and peanuts).  Hope to return.

A fantastic week in the Old Log Shed.  The perfect place to relax to begin the holidays.  We have enjoyed lots of activities - canyoning, zip wiring, cycling and kayaking.  Thanks to Kate for being a fantastic host.

A lovely compact little place - peaceful and cosy.  Had a wonderful time, though so no badgers but did see deer.

What a lovely cosy little cottage.  The area is beautiful.  One of the most fantastic parts of Scotland.  We loved our stay here and will definitely come back.  Thanks for your kindness.  You're lucky to live here!
Jon & Sjanet

Badgers, grouse, red robins and red squirrels - we've seen it all at the Old Log Shed.  We have enjoyed a relaxing, comfortable week here returning to the cosy cabin after long days hill climbing and walking through local forests.   It's been a great time.
Wendy & Charles

Had a lovely restful holiday with plenty of wildlife.  Got some night shots of a young badger munching peanuts and peanut butter.

Blissful stay at the Old Log Shed.  Thanks for the warm welcome and recommendations - and for the chutney

Our first and certainly not out last stay!  What a wonderful place.  A lovely cosy and clean cabin set in an idyllic location, giving you the perfect opportunity to explore the surrounding area.  What more could you want?  Thank you for having us!

Had a lovely stay. Loads of wildflife = squirrels and a haree and badgers every night.  Woke up to 4" snow - brilliant!  Can't wait to come back.
Mal & Jan, Cumbria

Great time, lovely place and the badger came regularly.  Will come again.  The darker the night the earlier the badgers.
Hazel &  Chris, Leicester

Lovely week and lovely to be back here again.  If you really want to treat yourself we recommend the landrover tour of Rothiemurchus Estate (3 hours) and also a meal at "One Pot Borrowed" in the Rothiemurchus Centre.
Gillian & Peter, Birkhill, Dundee

We spent a really nice couple of days here.  Everything was perfect.  Thanks for thew hospitality and for the xmas presents.

Plenty of wildlife in the garden, excellent views of red squirrel feeding, crested tits right at the window and a tawny owl.  Glimpses at early evening and just before dawn of pine marten.  Jays, woodpeckers, kestral, buzzard, treecreeper, fieldfare, redpoll and red bunting all seen in garden.  In the forest behind I saw capercaillie and lots more crested tits and crossbill.  In the mountains above Kingussie ptarmigan, mountain hare in their winter white glory, golden eagle being robbed by a raven. Jasmine, the dog loved the heavy snow and I enjoyed the blue  skies and sunshine early in the stay.  My third stay here. 
Peter Brown, Llandudno

Had another great week.  Just  chilling out.  See you next year.

Weather variable – snow – rather a surprise.  See you next March.

Lovely week.  Weather good. Just as good as ever after all the years we have been coming.  Hope to see you next year. 
Frank & Mary Wright, Tyne & Wear 

Idyllic setting for our wildlife watching holiday. Greatly enjoyed exploring the beautiful Loch Insh and Marshes.  Very cosy and well equipped cabin.  Loved the ‘jam’.  Overjoyed to have badgers coming to see us every night at dusk.  I will be back..  Thank you Kate
Karen Mustchin, Hants

We enjoyed our short stay – every rainy, snowy and sunny day!  Felt at home.  Loved the way Kate guided us with her precise and accurate directions for getting around.  In short, felt at home.  Thanks Kate.
J Ramakumar, Brussels 

Another perfect week, thanks Kate!  There are so many walks to do in this area that we didn’t really venture very far afield this time.  We loved coming back to the Old Log Shed and watching Bob the Badger.  He loves peanut butter on bread and peanuts. One night he came up to the patio door.  He usually came out about 10pm. The weather was gorgeous and we only had one afternoon of rain.
Samantha Gass, Birmingham

Thank you Kate.  Weather was mixed but still enjoyed our stay.  Second time in the Old Log Shed and 22 years in total in Kate’s Cabins! 
Pam Clements, Kent 

Our week in the Old Log Shed has been wonderful: a well-equipped place in a great situation.  We saw 20 species of birds from our windows and squirrels. A roe deer walked close by one morning and the badgers provided what was, for us, a unique experience.  Thank you Kate
Liz & David Lea, Orkney 

Second stay in ‘Kate’s Cabins’  The Old Log Shed is perfect – so cosy and comfortable!  Thanks for the jam Kate!  Spent nearly every day at RSPB Loch Garten Osprey Centre watching the birds!  Crested tits, coal tits, red squirrels, goldcrests etc. etc.  Loved it!  Then ‘home’ here for more wildlife.  Badgers been every night!  Two nights at midnight but tonight at 8pm!  Feed them peanuts on the wooden tray on the patio and they will come!! Lots of walking in the beautiful forests.  Weather was kind – very little rain.  Thanks again Kate.
