It is hard to pick fault with this lovely holiday home, Ann or the surrounding countryside, so we won’t! Everything is as described and more. Ann was very helpful, quick to answer queries and offer advice, with every detail attended to. The cottage is a character home that has been beautifully and tastefully renovated and is immaculate. Set in a quiet, secluded but accessible position, it is near enough to Ballater for easy access to shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The bakeries and butcher are highly recommended! We ate in every day because of the current restrictions and were very impressed with the range and quality of kitchen equipment at our disposal – there were also added extras such as picnic equipment, rugs, food containers etc for use in warmer times. It ranks as one of the most well-appointed holiday homes we have visited over many years holidaying, here and abroad. There is a variety of walks from the door and stunning countryside all around, and after a day’s exploring, there is nothing better than to return to a warm home, and a cup of tea and cake in front of a glowing log burner!
