Before our stay Katy emailed helpful directions including information on things to do in the area and a selection of places to eat in Braemar and also arranged a dinner reservation. A warm welcome awaited when we stayed at Callater Lodge in September, within 10 minutes of arriving we were sat in the guest lounge enjoying plunger coffee and cake....

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Please do come back and join us at Callater Lodge again! We've lived here for two and a half years now and are still finding new walks that excite us! We think it's important to be properly fuelled with cake before a walk - I'm so pleased you enjoyed them! Best wishes...

We had a great weekend staying with Julian and Katie. The room was very comfortable with a great bed, the breakfast superb with home baked bread and the friendliness of our hosts only put the icing on on the cake that was the wedding at Mar Lodge. Great location, great guest house, great hosts - we'll be back!

We spent our honeymoon in Scotland and stayed one night in Braemar and chose this B&B because of it's great ratings - and it didn't disappoint. Great location, amazing property with very cosy but spacious room, super friendly hotsts and really yummy brekkie. We'll definitely be staying there again should we visit Braemar again.

We stayed at Callater Lodge during a week long walking trip in the Cairngorms. The rooms were spotless, food great and the hospitality of our hosts Julian and Katy was faultless. They have a great knowledge of the mountains and a well curated whiskey collection too. Nothing is too much trouble and it feels like a real home from home....

We visited Callater Lodge on a short road trip around Scotland. Whilst the whole trip was amazing this place really made our holiday. The building – stylish and cosy.

Spent just the one night here but what a beautiful house, hopelessly clean, great sized room with good facilities. Julian was the perfect host, chatty and informative with a little bit of Lo all history thrown in. Breakfast was excellent too. If your going to Braemar then this is where you should stay.

Stayed at Callater Lodge last weekend with some friends. Was warmly welcomed, the rooms were spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Beautiful surroundings - red squirrels in the garden! Easy to find. A lovely place to stay.
