Gorgeously quaint and luxurious hideaway sitting amongst the heather-covered hills of Royal Deeside, perfect for a couple to enjoy a short break.
This Grade A-listed cottage could be your next romantic hideaway, just for you (and your furry third wheel of course), for a true experience of remote, magical Scotland. The traditional property has been lovingly restored to retain and modernise its stunning original features, and is set in 3 acres of gorgeous, rolling grounds in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.
With the choice of sitting in an armchair next to the wood burner with your canine curled by your feet or lounging in the recessed snug with tartan cushions, you will love cosying up in the lounge. There is also a traditional country-cottage table and chairs to sit at whilst eating dinner. The quirkiness continues in the kitchen with its traditional farmhouse sink sunk into bespoke, wooden units which sit alongside a large storage cupboard. The bedroom's wooden panelling, cast-iron bedstead and traditional furniture hark back to bygone days, but the clean finish brings it back into the modern day. In the bathroom, you can step into the contemporary shower or soak in the unique, handcrafted wooden bath. Add to this, your own sauna to ensure you have a restful, restorative break. Plus, your dog will love the outdoor space around the cottage, with those 3 acres of enclosed grounds to sniff out.
The location of this cottage is unrivalled. Sitting above Braemar in the midst of Cairngorms National Park, you're surrounded by nature and views across this dramatic part of Scotland. Grab the collar and lead and take your pup for an adventure in the park, discovering hills and glens. Jump in the car to visit scenic Loch Muick (28 miles), or for energetic pups, explore the dramatic foothills of Ben Macdui or Glenshee (9 miles).
The track up to the cottage is difficult, so a four-wheel-drive car is available for guests to use.
It should also be noted that a new house is being built near the cottage during 2021
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
