Our cottage is close to Balmoral Castle, between Braemar & Ballater - there are many family-friendly activities in the area, including great walks & cycle paths. The cottage has just been extensively renovated making it even more cosy & comfortable. You’ll love the peace & quiet, the stunning views, the cosy ambiance, comfy beds, use of our quality mountain bikes to explore the area, wood burning stoves & high standard of accommodation. We welcome well behaved pets for a small fee of £20.
The cottage is unique as a cosy property offering a high standard of accommodation with two wood burning stoves within the Cairngorm National Park, a short walk from Balmoral Castle.
Situated between Ballater & Braemar the cottage offers easy access to local golf courses, castles, distilleries, skiing at Glenshee & The Lecht, as well as Lochnagar (Munro) and many other local walking & cycling routes.

We are a married couple, who moved back to Aberdeenshire a few years ago. We love the area and bought our house (a former manse) with a cottage next to it, which we now rent out. We have been hosting guests for over 12 years now so are quite experienced and aim to provide a friendly service and a high standard of accommodation. We have spent a lot of time and effort doing up our home and cultivating the garden at the cottage as well as our home. We have two dogs, several chickens and enjoy walking, golf, ceramics, cycling, travelling & skiing.
