Located at the edge of the village of Crathie in the eastern Cairngorm National Park in the heart of Royal Deeside. Crathie is around six miles from Ballater, a vibrant highland town with numerous opportunities for eating out, shopping and activities. Seven miles to the west in the centre of the park is Braemar, a smaller town with more limited services but which affords a gateway to the interior expanse of the high mountainous area of the central Cairngorms.

Within the immediate vicinity of Crathie, Balmoral Castle is a popular destination for tourists passing through the area. The Lochnagar distillery is also located here and can be visited for a tour of the facility or just to try a quick dram at the bar. There are many other castles and distilleries within a short drive of the property.

Ballater is an old town which has retained much of its charm as it has avoided the extensive development so prevalent in the towns to the north of the park. There are numerous hotels, restaurants, bars and shops serving the local population and the busy tourist industry which reaches it's peak during the summer months.

Braemar is considerably smaller but is still popular with tourists due to it's enduring architecture and spectacular location in the remote central Cairngorms. Braemar castle and Invercauld castle can be visited at selected times and there are hotels, coffee shops, an art gallery and a tourist information centre.


Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Ballater

Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice. For walkers, the Munro of Lochnagar with it's high northern corries so popular with climbers, lies immediately to the south across the river Dee. To the north Ben Avon and the surrounding wilderness offers plenty of opportunity for exploration right out the back door. The central Cairngorms can be accessed on foot or mountain bike by selecting an appropriate entry point within a short drive.

Four National nature reserves are within short driving distance of Tomidhu. Glen Tanar lies to the south of Aboyne and is a remnant of the Caledonian pine forest that once covered the highlands. It is one of the regions where capercaille, red squirrels and Scottish crossbills can still be found. Muir of Dinnet is a maturing silver birch forest around the shores of Loch Kinord with a network of established forest trails and a small visitor centre. Both are well worth a visit.
For sport climbers, within ten minutes drive, the Pass of Ballater offers a selection of routes of varying difficulty.
For mountain bikers, Invercauld estate, Mar estate, and Balmoral estate all contain a network of paths and tracks that afford an opportunity to explore the area on two wheels.
Those wishing to spend some time fishing could try their skills pursuing salmon on the river Dee on the local beats operated by the local estate offices. In addition there is trout fishing available on Invercauld estate, in Loch Muick on the Balmoral estate and at Tullich Loch just outside Ballater. There is also coarse fishing at Loch Kinord and Aboyne Loch.

The local golf courses in the area are Balmoral, Braemar, Ballater, Tarland and Aboyne.

Weather conditions can be challenging at all times of the year but this is especially true during the winter months when the high mountains are invariably covered with a blanket of snow. Sixteen miles south west lies the Glenshee ski area which is located at a high level to the south above Braemar. It has extensive slopes, three café/restaurants, a small shop and a sizeable ski hire facility. The Lecht ski centre is 10 miles to the north on the A939. The slopes are lower, generally less challenging and it also has a café and ski hire available.

“Beautiful cannot fault it”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

Myself, my fiance our daughter and two friends stayed here for a week from the 28th of Dec until the 4th of Jan. We had an absolutely fantastic time even though we spent a whole day without power, a road collapsing at one side land slides at the other and terrible flooding in Ballater. The owners Tina and Gary kept in constant contact with us keeping us updated, offering assistance with regards to getting us food, candles etc they honestly couldn't have done any more. The cottage itself was stunning. It really was a home from home, very spacious, comfortable, cozy and spotlessly clean. Lovely little touches like the visitor book to read everyone's previous comments, the dog bed, the welcome gifts, the games, we spent hours playing Monopoly. It all really made you feel welcome. We will definitely be back. The little patio outside the patio door would be perfect for a hot tub but that would just be an added extra to an already fantastic cottage.
