A nice place for a group of 7 people. It was clean and had a big kitchen, with a very nice fire place! A very quiet stay in the middle of nature.
Mr Waanders

A big house with multiple spaces to relax. The kitchen was large and well stocked with ample room for large cooking parties. The garden was huge with lots of space to play with the kids. Big rooms with lots of nice little details.
Mr Mcausland

Spacious well-equipped cottage in a beautiful part of the Highlands.
Mr Gaffney

We all really enjoyed our holiday. The Cottage was lovely with everything we could have wanted - the dishwasher being the jewel in the crown. Cannot fault the property and would highly recommend it to others. Nearby Ballater was very pleasant and has plenty of options for food to eat in or take away if you want to avoid cooking on your holiday.
Mr Widdicks

Beautiful part of the country. Enjoyable to have breakfast outside whilst enjoying the superb location!
Mr Dickinson
