The Pine Cone is surrounded by silver birches which sway in the breeze and there is a summerhouse in the garden to relax in and a tree house in woods belonging to the Pine Cone where one can listen to music and enjoy a coffee at altitude! Evening suppers under the tree house on warm evenings are a real treat.The owners have their own private dedicated garden area but guests have full use of the woodland area.

It is ideally situated to visit nearby castles including Balmoral,distilleries,Stonehaven Harbour boat trips and standing stones.The European oil capital Aberdeen is 16 miles away with its wonderful St Machars Cathedral and Kings College in Old Aberdeen. The Feugh Bridge salmon leap is 2 minutes from the Pine Lodge .

There are at least 6 golf courses within a 20 minute drive and the local course at Banchory although just short of 6000 yards is a testing par 67. Royal Aberdeen and the Trump International courses are a 45 minute drive away.

For the serious climber there are several Munros within a 45 minute drive but there are less challenging hills nearby.

Good restaurants and coffees are within easy reach -some within walking distance of the Pine Cone.

Location description from owner

The Aberdeenshire region

Auchattie is a 5 minute drive / 15 minute walk to Banchory which is a vibrant town in Royal Deeside .<

The River Dee meanders over 66 miles from its source in the hills above Braemar to the North Sea at Aberdeen . The river is surrounded by superb forests and overlooked by impressive mountains and hills in what is one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert so loved the area in the19th century that they had Balmoral Castle built and it is one of several impressive castles in the area .Members of the Royal Family stay there on a regular basis. Royal Deeside offers the opportunity to walk or cycle over miles of forest tracks or by the River Dee or climb hills mountains or ski in the winter at nearby ski slopes. There are some wonderful and testing Golf Courses, great fishing on the River Dee or at local trout fisheries. Several Distilleries offer the opportunity to learn how whisky is made and also to taste a wee dram! There are many restaurants and hotels serving good food very often with local produce. Aberdeen is only 15 miles away and offers the excitement of a vibrant busy harbour. Dolphins can be seen at the breakwater. The quieter Old Aberdeen with its 500 year old St Machar Cathedral and Kings College Chapel is a good place to visit. In summer many of the Deeside villages have their own Highland Games and Agricultural Shows . The famous Braemar Gathering is held on the first Saturday in September when members of the Royal family attend.

Banchory

Set on a rural setting with trees all around this is the ideal getaway. Step out of the Pine Cone onto forest and riverside tracks which go for miles. Low level walking is plentiful particularly along the banks of the River Dee. It is a geo cachers heaven with a Harry Potter trail on the doorstep . There are castles,distilleries ,old churches all around and Balmoral the summer home of Queen Elizabeth is a 45 minute drive away.
