Property Description

Countryside views

This self contained holiday property, the wing of a cottage, has been furnished with style and flair to ensure a memorable relaxing break. Idyllically situated in an elevated position a short distance from Aboyne, it offers views over the gardens towards the River Dee, where salmon fishing can be arranged. There are extensive grounds with varied birdlife and squirrels which regularly visit. Within walking distance of a pub and restaurant, the house is not far from the village of Aboyne, which has shops and eateries, and in the summer has its own Highland Games – a feature throughout Deeside. Balmoral Castle is well worth a visit and in winter skiing at the Lecht or Glenshee are both easily accessed. Fishing, golf, hill walking, horse riding and even gliding at a nearby club.

All on ground floor: Living room/kitchen. 1 double bedroom. Shower room with toilet.

Oil central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. DVD and small library. Electric cooker. Microwave. Shared laundry facilities. Shared grounds with patio and furniture. Portable barbecue. Parking (2 cars). No smoking.

  1. Wonderful setting, spacious and comfortable accommodation, with red squirrels abounding in the garden. June 2012.
  2. The cottage was lovely, met all of our expectations. We were surprised to find a Scottish wine and bunch of flowers waiting for us. Every morning we enjoyed watching the red squirrels, pheasant and other birds on feeder outside the cottage. It was an amazing holiday and we definitely want to visit Scotland again. May 2012.
  3. Excellent property, we have been four times, best cottage we have everstayed in. The quality of furnishings etc. are excellent. The owners are very accommodating. The outlook is superb and the wildlife is wonderful! Oct 2011.
  4. Property was clean and warm. It was furnished very comfortably. The appliances and equipment provided was comprehensive and of very high quality. Sept 2010.

  13. Compact, cosy and excellent location. Sept 2009.
  14. Lovely countryside and plenty to do whatever the weather. It was beautifully decorated and peaceful. There was plenty of room and the owner was very helpful and pleasant. The fact that we were on a private road and the property is accessed through gates meant that it was private and as there was room off road for our car. Aug 2009.

  17. A warm welcome with excellent advice about walks. The owner couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful. The views from our window were stunning and we enjoyed watching red squirrels and fabulous birds in the garden every day. April 2009.
  18. This is an excellent two person (and small dog) cottage with loads of forest walks from the cottage and 500 metres to the restaurant and pub. Very clean, comfortable and functionable facilities and a great welcome from the owners (and Max the Jack Russel) cant wait to go back! March 2009.
  19. An excellent cottage very comfortable and well equipped. Jan 2009.
  20. This property was more than I could have expected. I was looking for a place to stay that reminded me of Scotland and this was it. My husband and I enjoyed the wildlife in the backyard which included pheasants, red squirrels, and assorted colorful birds that we don’t get in the US. What a delightful cottage, I wish we could have stayed longer! May 2008.
