Hot tub with stunning views
Lucky to drop on this little gem. Although we've seen a great deal of Scotland and the islands, we had never been to Aberdeen area. Not disappointed albeit you need to enjoy driving to enhance the experience. The roads can be a little daunting in places and so can the weather!! The lodge had everything the two of us needed. We did have a problem with the tv but Archie willingly sorted this out for us. My wife just loved sitting in the hot tub - irrespective of the weather enjoying the views and I don't mean me !! The surrounding countryside is breathtaking. Enjoy star gazing in the darkness we don't have in towns and cities. Ballater has a choice for food and drink. Our normal holidays includes lots of eating out but this time we were so contented to enjoy the quiet and joy of being lost in the highlands we self catered enjoying local fish and meats. Curl up with a roaring log fire with a wee dram and just relax. Wonderful!!!

Overall the cottage was excellent, in a very nice and quiet location. The hot tub is a great addition. Really enjoyed in visit. Thank you
