“A lovely, welcoming holiday home which is very well-maintained and set in a quiet and peaceful location.”

We had a very busy sightseeing and walking schedule planned but the true highlight of this holiday was to return each evening to this lovely warm, spotlessly clean and welcoming house. The house is situated at the end of a quiet, tree lined road with nearby river walks and is within easy walking distance of Ballater. We were reluctant to leave and are already planning our next visit here and recommending it to all our friends.

“Comfortable, cosy, a real home from home.”

We spent a very relaxing 3 day break here. The cottage is extremely well maintained, clean and very comfortable. Everything was as advertised and we will definitely be booking another break soon.

Tigh na Darroch is a lovely cottage at the end of a road that leads directly onto a gorgeous walk along the river side - you can walk around the golf course into the town of Ballater or straight down the lane at the start of the road and into town (ten mins walk at most). The cottage has everything you could want and more. We visited in July 2013 with our family (2 adults + 5 year old and 2 year old) and our friends (2 adults + 4 year and 2 year old), the place was perfect for us and we had plenty of space. The kids enjoyed the enclosed back garden and the weather allowed us to have a lovely BBQ out there (BBQ provided in the garage along with plenty of outside seating and tables). Ballater is a gorgeous little town with EVERYTHING you could want (amazing butcher, Deli, bakers and a co-op) along with lovely cafes and restaurants. Some lovely walks around the area and convenient to explore the cairngorms. We all had a really lovely stay, would highly recommend.

“Second visit, looking forward to going back.”
Reviewed 19 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Second visit. House is spacious, clean and well equipped. Were able to sit out and BBQ in the lovely garden. Enjoyed the walks. It was great to be able to walk to village, along river etc without having to drive. Ballater itself has a nice atmosphere with nice shops to pop in and out of and plenty eateries for meals, snacks and coffees. The surrounding scenery is breath taking which I think is what attracts me to the area. I look forward to visiting again and of course would recommend this to any reader.

“Beautiful holiday home”
Reviewed 13 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Gorgeous house in a lovely, peaceful setting but not too far from the town centre. The 3 bed house is fully equiped with everything you could possibly need & although we took our own tea/coffee etc this was also provided along with free wifi. Our 15 month daughter loved running around in the big, enclosed garden & we loved the walk along the river into Ballater. We had a great time & cant wait to go back.

“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 11 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Perfect situation by the River Dee with a variety of walks and lots of bird watching. Accommodation was lovely and everyone agreed that the beds were very comfy! Ballater is a beautiful village with a good selection of restaurants- try The Rock Salt and Snail for light eating.
