We managed to get away for three nights between travel restrictions and were delighted to find this 'home-from-home'. From a beautifully set Christmas table (with gifts of crackers that the children loved) to the spotlessly clean kitchens and bathrooms, we really appreciated it all. There are books and toys and lots of interesting things in the house and then the grounds lead on to quiet little paths through the woods to explore. The close proximity of the Highlander Bakehouse was just an added bonus. We will definitely be back! Thank you Alistair.

On every front this was excellent accommodation. The location for Deeside is perfect. The rooms are spotless with well kitted out kitchens. The living and dining space suit a large family gathering. Plan to return when things settle down.

Been staying at Alistairs for 3 years now when we go to the Braemar Gathering, and would never stay anywhere else. The place is so comfy , Alistair is the most welcoming friendly host you could ever hope for. We stay in his home , and it's like a home from home . Everytime we go there is another project underway from building a beautiful wooden gazebo, a stunning hand built bbq and now a giant chess board !! From the breakfast he tries to feed us , to the beer and gin he leaves in the fridge, it's amazing ! You wouldn't find a more warm , kind hearted man , who is so well respected throughout the area. Just want to keep it our secret hideaway though !

This was an excellent cottage with everything you could need in it from a fully equipped kitchen and laundry room to games and log fires. You could travel here and just need to bring your food and drink. Centrally located for visiting surrounding area. We even saw the Queen at Crathie Kirk and inspecting the troops at Balmoral. We had two dogs with us who just loved all the great walks. We only went as far as Aboyne which was great as we just wanted a relaxing holiday. Walking during the day and playing board games at night. The only thing we felt could be improved was a higher fence needed around the car park area as my cockapoo managed to jump fence on a few occasions. Saying that we wouldn’t hesitate to come back again. Thanks to Gary and Tina for the biscuits and a beautiful cottage.
