Interaction with guests
Ring our bell (the blue door next to the black metal gate) and I'll let you in and show you the apt. We live in the downstairs part of the house but you'll have your own door and be totally self-contained - I've 3 sets of keys. All I ask is that no-one smokes in the apartment or out the windows, damages the apartment and considers my neighbours noise wise. I provide local shortbread, home made jam and marmalade (feel free to take any unused/leftover away with you) along with 4pts milk, tea, coffee, and sugar as a welcome. Our Co-op food store is in the next street – less than 5 mins walk away and it’s open 7 am till 10 pm.

Getting around
Ballater is accessible by public transport bus and you can walk to shops in the village. Should you wish to hill walk, there are several walks which do not require a car, others can be accessed by bus or a car/taxi. The same applies for sightseeing. There are buses to Braemar, Balmoral, Muir of Dinnet, Crathes Castle, Drum Castle and Aberdeen. To travel to Loch Muick, Glentanar, Distilleries, a car is necessary.
How to get there
If coming from Aberdeen, enter Ballater, drive up Bridge St (the main street) passing the church on the green on your left then you'll see shops on your left and Wilkie’s on your right. Turn left immediately after Yule's the newsagent onto Viewfield Road. Pass the Chip Shop on your right and Duneire is the first blue door next to a black metal gate. If you’re coming from the Braemar side, turn right into Viewfield Road immediately after Emslie’s carpet shop which is on your left.
