Schoolhouse B&B was a great find, we highly recommend it. Very welcoming and friendly, large comfortable rooms, with lots of original features and wonderfully decorated.
The location is very quiet, and away from busy roads and it's still only a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Ballater, with its many shops, cafes and restaurants. The B&B is also very warm, whilst it's a traditional house with all the charm you would expect, it has been renovated and highly insulated, so the house was warm and comfortable throughout and meets great environmental standards - important if you are visiting in winter (walking, skiing and lots more) as Ballater enjoys clear, crisp and cold Scottish air! It is awarded as a Green Tourism B&B.
Ballater is a superb charming place to stay - The Queen's residence at Balmoral, superb walking from the B&B and nearby Lochnagar and other mountains, cross country skiing and downhill skiing just at Glenshee. It's very unspoilt.
