PLEASE NOTE: Current Government direction is to STAY AT HOME without making non-essential travel and as such we have unfortunately had to cancel all existing bookings, and are not able to take any new bookings, during April

We hope to return to normal at the earliest opportunity but we may need to cancel any new or existing bookings after April dependent on the latest situation and Government direction regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19.

Thank you for your understanding.

The space
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 £25.
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.

Guest access
Guests have access to the whole property, including parking outside.

Other things to note
We are experienced hosts, having rented out this cottage for over four years now (new to Airbnb in 2017) as well as our other cottage in Rannoch since 2004! We strive to provide a high standard of accommodation, a relaxed stay and to help you make the most of the beautiful area we live in.

Access to Balmoral Castle is readily available for most of the year. However, whilst the Queen is in residence (July-September) the castle & grounds are closed to the public.

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.
