This beautiful Victorian house with stunning views over a loch and hills, sits between its own large garden and the flower-filled courtyard of Lochside House. Set on a working farm with rare breeds and horses, this comfortable holiday property is extremely well-equipped and superbly furnished with antiques and soft sofas, perfect for relaxing in after exploring the many abbeys, castles and old houses found within the area.
Numerous recreational facilities are provided for visitors – without even having to leave the grounds – and which cater for a whole range of interests and a variety of tastes. In the drawing room a selection of games, toys and books make a enjoyable evening spent together as a family. The more sports-orientated are able to while away many happy hours playing snooker and badminton, or enjoying the more sedate game of croquet, whilst trout and coarse fishing are also available on-site at cost. A pub to frequent in the evenings lies just 1½ miles away.
The village of Yetholm is made up of two distinct parts – Kirk Yetholm and Town Yetholm, which lie just ¼ mile apart.

Six miles to the north is Kelso, where surviving ruins belie the fact that Kelso Abbey was once the richest and most powerful in southern Scotland, and took eighty years to build.

Lairds Cast Ref: S99

In an area renowned for superb fishing and golf, this wonderful property, one of a pair, could not be in a better location! Just 50 yards from the rushing waters of the lovely River Dee and very close to Banchory Golf Course, this spacious and very comfortable accommodation makes full use of its situation, with patio doors from the living room offering an uninterrupted view of the river itself - where fishing may be arranged with the owner (subject to availability). With all modern facilities, it ensures a very relaxing stay in total comfort.
Banchory is a superb base for a varied holiday with Crathes Castle and garden, and Castle Fraser both well worth a visit. Also boasting two golf courses in the town, there is a wider choice in the surrounding area with excellent hillwalking and skiing available in the Cairngorms just a short distance away. A short drive leads to Ballater, where Queen Victoria first arrived in Desside in 1848. Although the line has long since closed, visitors can still visit the elegant train station in the heart of the town centre. Ballater is also an excellent base for local walks and outdoor activities. A popular walk leads to Lochnagar, the much painted and written about mountain by the current Prince of Wales.
Balmoral is easily accessible for the day and the local distillery at Lochnagar is well worth a visit, with tours and tasting of the local malt available. For an alternative day out, Aberdeen - Scotland’s third largest city, is well worth a visit. Many of the parks have been transformed into ‘flower gardens’ and are some of the most beautiful in Britain. There is also an excellent choice of restaurants and pubs and the livley city harbour comes alive in the evening with a number of theatres. Shops ½ mile.
