We had a short break in Ballater and were very lucky to be able to book into Bertie Cottage. It is totally gorgeous and absolutely every detail seems to have been considered by the owners to make this the most comfortable and well-appointed holiday home. When we were there the weather was beautiful and we sat in the garden for breakfast and back to sit in the sun for evening drinks - the patio is the perfect all-day sun trap. Loved that we could take our walking boots off at the back door at the bench and boot scraper - neat touch! The interior is pristine, all the home comforts without the clutter, yet very comfortable and immaculately clean. We didn't have our golf clubs but there was a great lockable storage space outside, large enough for clubs and bikes. This was my first stay in Ballater but we will definitely be back to Bertie! Many thanks.
