“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 7 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We booked Drumhead Cottage gor the weekend of our daughter's wedding. The location and views from the cottage are simply stunning and the accommodation was immaculate. All the facilities are of a high standard and provided us with a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Little personal touches like the card and bottle of fizz for the bride were very thoughtful too. I would highly recommend this for a relaxing break and very good value.

Reviewed 2 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A perfect place to stay. Modern, spotless and comfortable. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Suitable for all ages young and old. The hot tub a big hit for the adults and the lovely garden a great run around for younger children. The owner Donna couldnt be more helpful or accomodating. Book to stay here and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed

“Fabulous Cottage”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Fabulous cottage for our family of 4. Great sized rooms and decorated and furnished to a high standard. The hot tub is a lovely extra! Donna was really helpful.
Plenty to do in the area. Would recommend the Finzean farm shop. Also the Boat Inn in Aboyne.

“Immaculate house with Bonnie views and hot tub”
Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Stayed at house for four nights. House has everything you need for a first class break away.
House is amongst other houses but you would never know, peaceful and private.
The house interior is very welcoming and spacious.
Some great walks and plenty to do nearby.
Donna has thought of everything.
The photos on website don't do house justice. Would highly recommend to all ages.

“Fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed 11 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Cottage is beautifully appointed - a perfect home from home. All rooms immaculately decorated and furnished and exceptionally well maintained. Donna and Roddy are perfect hosts, very friendly and welcoming and on hand if there are any problems.
The views from the cottage are stunning if you don't want to venture far.
The Cowshed is great for meals. The Grampian Transport Museum, Dunnottar Castle, Drum Castle, Glen Tanar and Loch Muick are well worth visiting.
The Mains of Drum Garden Centre is a must for coffee and cake.
We'll definitely be back soon.

“Great place to stay in Deeside”
Reviewed 6 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

All the comforts of home plus a hot tub!

A great base for a holiday allowing you to visit local sites such as Dunnottar Castle. The farm shop just up the road is very handy for groceries and does a lovely breakfast. Donna is very friendly and helpful. We will be back.

“Fantastic place and superb for taking the family to enjoy time together.”
Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Everything impressed us about our weeks holiday here! What a wonderful place to stay. A real home from home and everything you could wish for and more in holiday accommodation. A host of information was available in the accommodation about the surrounding area and more which had been ;lovingly put together. If you have any reservations about the hot tub and cleanliness don't have as the owners were very conscientious. The views were spectacular and we made lots of wonderful memories. We could not fault this holiday - even with the Scottish weather! 5 Stars!
We want to book for next year already
