Everything we needed to be perfectly comfortable was available in the cottage. The kitchen was equipped to a high standard, the bedrooms comfortable, the under floor heating was wonderful, the picture windows beautiful, and we enjoyed a fire every evening. The kids loved the games cabinet and the swing outside, too! We had room to spread out in the spacious floor plan and enjoyed the quiet and privacy of the location. We saw deer and scores of birds in the garden. Easy to find necessities and dining at nearby Breamar and Ballater, and it was lovely to be so close to Balmoral, Deeside, and Royal Lochnagar Distillery.
