About the neighbourhood
Our beautiful and comfortable holiday cottage is located in the peaceful village of Finzean, great for getting away from it all. You can enjoy the many short walks from the front door or have relaxing soak in the hot tub while enjoying the views of ‘our’ curiously shaped mountain Clachnaben. If you’re in the mood for exploring, the town of Banchory is 10 minutes away and the picturesque village of Aboyne is also 10 minutes from our cottage and the lovely village of Ballater is 30 minutes away. They offer an abundance of leisurely sightseeing, shopping, fishing, golf, restaurants and pubs. If you’re feeling energetic there’s plenty of options to enjoy like skiing, shooting, mountain climbing, fishing and sightseeing.
Getting around
You will need a car for a stay at our cottage.
