“Beautiful holidays at Brae cottage”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

It was now our third stay at Brae cottage and it will not be the last one. Like before everything was outstanding starting with the welcome of the owner over the cottage itself, very well equipped, and the location. Form here you have the possibillity to visited a lot of nice places where Scotland is famous for e.g. Castles, Gardens,Distilleries or enjoy the silence and the view from the cottage Side.

Many thanks to Sarah and Neil

I stayed here for 2 nights with my 2 young children and 2 more family members. Beautiful views, with a nice walk down to the local pub which serves delicious food! The owners of the cottage were extremely helpful and friendly, we will definitely be back!

“A lovely house in the beautiful Scottish highlands”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

I visited during Christmas with my husband, two children and mother in law while visiting family in Ellon. Ahead of the visit, family visited the cottage and met our host Sarah. She was very helpful and welcoming - and provided additional children items (a cot, a highchair) when asked about items for young children.

The cottage was lovely and finished to a high standard. The layout - with the sun room away from the bedrooms - allowed the children to play and make normal child noise in the sun room while adults slept in the bedrooms - which was lovely. The space was perfect, and there was plenty of space for everyone. I wholeheartedly recommend this adorable and fantastic cottage to anyone with high standards visiting North East Scotland.

“Fantastic cottage in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed here with my husband and mother-in-law whilst visiting family and friends in Peterhead and Boddam. The cottage was immaculate and finished to a high standard. Lots of room and fully equipped throughout. Welcomied on arrival by our super host Sarah, who was very helpful in recommending places to eat, directions here and there and she had also provided a full fridge of goodies, snacks and drinks - fantastic.. All in all we would have loved to stay longer and made the most of the cottage and all the wonderful opportunities and sights that surround it. I would not hesitate in recommending this fantastic cottage to anyone with high standards visiting North East Scotland.
