Further details indoors

This house is designed for eight people to enjoy country holidays in the Highlands of the Grampian Mountain range.
The house is in the Dee Valley between Ballater and Dinnet.
The house overlooks farmland to the east to the wide Dinnet Muir, or moor, which is a low lying area of birch and heather moorland surrounding Loch Kinord, a naturally land locked loch north and west of Dinnet.
The house was designed with holiday cottage facilities, originally for six guests now extended to sleep eight in four twin bedded rooms. There are three bathrooms with baths or showers, an enormous kitchen and dining room, sitting room and utility room.

The kitchen is well fitted and supplied with three fridges and there are two deep freezers, a large range cooker with propane gas hobs and electric ovens.
The heating is more than adequate.
The washing and bathing facilities are a mixture of bath only, shower over bath in the en suite, and a shower only, there are wc in each room.
The house is designed to be fairly child and dog proof, surfaces and floors are durable in preference to fancy.

Further details outdoors

There is a gravelled area, protected from the wind where barbecues can be had, with large, tough picnic tables allow outdoor eating, this is proving extremely popular especially among the "Gourmande" holiday makers!

There is no twee garden as we cannot support one, and we prefer to think of the hundreds of thousands of acres of the Highlands, which begin at the doorstep, to be preferable to a maintained garden:
Go out and enjoy the countryside!

The Scotland region

The Grampian Highlands are the lesser mountain range to the east of the Cairngorms, the true mountain massif forming the central high ground in northern Scotland.

The Cairngorms, in general, have been committed to the Cairngorm National Park, due to the species of plants found here and the broad diversity of plants of a mountain nature.
The Highlands have been struggling to self finance for many centuries, generally the land has been grouped into Estates for management and ownership purposes, where forestry, fishing, farming and shooting have brought revenue for the sustenance of the fabric of the properties.

Recently other forms of revenue have been forthcoming, in greater or lesser amounts, in the form of general tourism, sadly this has yet to reach lebvels of income to match the traditional revenue streams.

Ballater

Ballater and Aboyne are two Highland market towns and bridging points, situated on the River Dee to service the hinterlands of both towns. Dinnet is a crossroads and bridging point over the Dee.

In former times Aboyne and Ballater were serviced by a railway and bus terminals, cattle market, banking and shopping, bakeries and health centres, with retail outlets for tourists and locals alike.

Braemar, Aboyne and other towns in the area host Highland Games to challlenge locals and touring athletes, dancers and bagpipe players, they happen once a year in each venue and are advertised locally, nationally and on the internet.
Activities offered in the area are walks, riding, trekking, fishing, (salmon, brown and rainbow trout also coarse), shooting, stalking, distilleries, Balmoral Castle, skiing, historic Castles, gardens, etc.
