“Great location for exploring the area”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I was looking for somewhere to stay in February half term so i could take my three children skiing at either the lecht or glenshee. I picked Tigh na darroch because it was perfectly located between the two ski areas. I stayed at the property with my parents and three children (aged 13, 12 & 7). The property easily accommodated 3 adults and 3 children and had everything that we needed for the 5 nights that we stayed. Rosella was really helpful from the start and answered all the questions that i had quickly. The booking process was easy and straightforward. We had a great few days in Ballater, the weather was brilliant and were able to ski 3 out of 4 days, once at the lecht and twice at glenshee, high winds and rain prevented us from skiing for 4 days.

“Lovely holiday cottage”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Another lovely stay in this homely cottage! Very relaxing and comfortable place, set in most peaceful surroundings, yet within a few minutes walk from centre of Ballater. Lots of lovely walks in the area, and beautiful scenery. Booking this cottage is very easy, and the owner replies promptly to any enquiries. Would recommend to others, and we will definitely be having a break here again.

“Charming house and town”
Reviewed 3 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This wonderful house is situated a short walk from the Ballater town center and also right on some of the beautiful walking paths that take you along the river Dee and around the town. Our family of five fit comfortably in this house and we enjoyed using the living room, kitchen and dining room. It's a great jumping off point to visit a variety of locations in the Cairngorm mountains or even traveling to the East Coast (Stonehaven) which is about an hour away. The owner was very helpful with directions and information about the area. Access to the house was very easy.

person found this review helpful

We spent a weekend at this lovely cottage. Everything was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and extremely comfortable. The living/dining area was a bright and spacious room to sit and relax in. There were lots of books and games provided, plus lots of information leaflets about Ballater and the surrounding area. The cottage has a nice enclosed back garden with outdoor chairs and table which we were able to make use of as the weather was good. The location is very peaceful and right beside the start of the beautiful walk by the River Dee and golf course. We have booked to come back here in September, and are looking forward to it already, as we all felt so at home from the moment we stepped through the door!

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Fantastic house, the owner was so helpful in making sure we had everything we needed. We travelled with one and a half year old twins so she kindly provided two cots and high chairs and the fact its on one level meant no stairs to worry about except for three outside the backdoor which leads into the garden. We thought the house was much larger than it appears on the photos - went with kids and mother and brother and space for all of us and is in a great location in walking distance of Ballater and very clean and comfortable. No midges! Great value for money.
