The Old Log Shed is situated in the Spey Valley in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, in the Scottish Highlands and only a short distance from Kingussie and Aviemore. The well appointed timber chalet adjoins our family home.   The chalet has a south facing aspect with patio doors from the main room on to an outdoor living area with a backdrop of natural forest stretching into Glenfeshie and the Cairngorms mountains.
