About Linn of Avon Holiday Cottages

Linn of Avon Holiday Cottages is a small family run business in which the whole family has their own unique role.

About the Cottages

The cottages were built during 2016 / 2017 on the site of an old store. We constructed the cottages to give an authentic feel externally using traditional materials, retaining a section of the store walls and the stone to incorporate them into the garden walls thus maintaining a part of the past.

Internally the cottages have been designed with a modern contemporary look. The living room, dining room and kitchen are open plan to create a lovely light and airy sociable space.

To ensure the cottages meet our guest’s expectation an up to date entertainment system is available. You can also be assured that, although the cottages are in the heart of the Highland National Park, a fibre broadband service is available within the cottages should you feel the need to reconnect to the outside world.

We believe that our beautiful village is a very special place. For this reason, it is our aim to keep it in its natural splendour, the way mother nature intended, as much as possible.

We are committed to our responsibility of looking after the area and environment and encourage our guests to respect their surrounding when staying in our cottages.

Highlighting our commitment to the environment and your stay, we have ensured the cottages are well insulated with high quality windows and doors. LED lighting is employed throughout along with appliances with a minimum A+ rating.
