  • Bea’s place in Lumphanan is excellent and has everything you’d need to enjoy a short or long stay near the Cairngorms. The house is fabulous with comfortable bedrooms and social areas, and a fantastic kitchen and dining space to host dinner parties. We would recommend this Airbnb to everyone, you’ll have a great time! Thank you to the hosts for providing everything we needed!

    Samantha2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at ‘The Hideaway’. The living space is fantastic for a large family. The hot tub has great views, would be spectacular in summer. Communication with Bea was first class. Would certainly recommend.

    Heather2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Immaculate place in a great location. Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed break in the countryside.

    Derek2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house, all our guests were very comfortable. The place was clean, incredible view from the hot tub and check-in was helpful and pain-free. No complaints, would definitely recommend!

    Andrew2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We have just returned from a weekend at The Hideaway (4 adults, 4 children and 2 toddlers). The house was extremely spacious and perfect for a large group. Living, kitchen, dining area were all open plan and very well designed. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and more. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and the kids den area was a hit. We planned on seeing the local area but we couldn't bring ourselves to leave the beautiful house so we stayed in and relaxed and watched movies all weekend. The hot tub overlooks a picturesque landscape and kept the kids and adults happy for hours. The hosts were happy to answer any questions and when we had one small issue, it was sorted out immediately. Really pleased with the property and customer care. Thanks again.

    Angela2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great and relaxing time at the Hideaway. The house is spacious and nicely decorated. It offers a great view on the landscape. We highly recommend the Hideaway to everyone who seeks quietness and prefers nature over an urban surrounding.

    Braeburn Bothy is a charming, well-appointed, yet traditional Highland cottage accommodating up to 4 people and set in the heart of Royal Deeside. Just above the small village of Finzean, Braeburn Bothy is situated in one of Aberdeenshire's most picturesque and tranquil locations.
    Braeburn Bothy is 24 miles from Balmoral, Scottish holiday home to the Royal Family. The Cairngorms National Park boundary is approximately 8 miles from the Bothy. There are numerous golf courses within 25 minutes' drive, including those at Banchory, Aboyne, Ballater and Stonehaven. The Lecht and Glen Shee skiing areas are within very easy reach. The area offers a huge array of walks, ranging from the gentle to mountaineer standard. Cyclists will find there are hundreds of road and mountain/trail routes available close by. Naturally, the area's reputation for country pursuits such as salmon fishing, shooting and stalking is second to none. With reasonable prior notice and depending on availability and season, all of these can be arranged for guests. The wonderful Finzean Farm Shop and café is two fields away from the Bothy. This serves delicious daytime meals and stocks everything from fresh vegetables, Finzean beef and venison to local cheeses, whisky, beer and wine. With reasonable prior notice, daytime dog-sitting can be arranged.
  • We had a fantastic relaxing break at the Bothy. It was a beautiful space to chill out in and we enjoyed every minute.

    Kara2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Eoghan's Braeburn Bothy was a safe haven after a mad week of work. Albeit, only a 45 minute drive from Aberdeen, it felt like we were in the depth of the beautiful Scottish Highlands. Imagine "The Holiday", but make it Scottish. We fell asleep to the sound of a crackling fire in the wood stove each night, ate a hearty all organic breakfast at the Finzean Farm Shop just down the road and enjoyed hours of reading and boardgames with local beers in hand. Just bliss! I didn't want to leave!

    Ellie & Mike2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely 3 nights stay in Eoghan's bothy. Well prepared and warm for our arrival, set in the refreshing countryside, we loved our holiday here. Eoghan left plenty of tips and tricks for enjoying the area, and would definitely recommend finzean farm shop (short walk away) for breakfast. Wholly recommended, we would definitely book the bothy again, should we return.

    James2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location and has everything you need and more. The wood burning stove makes it very cosy and it's great that it's dog friendly. This was our second trip here and I'm sure it won't be our last.

    Dale2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect location to escape to and take a break. It was cosy and spotless. Will definitely be visiting again!

    Emma2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely couple of days in Eoghan's little house. It's a beautiful spot, with typically dramatic Scottish winter weather sweeping through the open glen. The house is charming; well insulated with an easy to use woodburner for extra ambience, comfortable sofas, hundreds of books on the wall and a spiral staircase up to the bedroom in the eaves. Directions, communication and information on the local area were all excellent. We hope to be back soon.

    Alex2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful little home! Eoghan's place was sparkling clean and had everything we needed. Eoghan even left us some essentials- bread, butter, eggs etc. Stunning surroundings and plenty to do near by. We would definitely stay again!!

    Gillian2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Braeburn Bothy. The accommodation had everything we needed for our stay and the location was perfect.

    A spacious and bright flat in part of a traditional farm courtyard. Located on a working organic farm the Hayloft provides generous and comfortable accommodation for two in twin or double bed (sofa bed also available).
    Stairs lead to a large combined living and, well equipped, kitchen area and bathroom with shower. The property has local hardwood flooring and features other locally sourced details such as paintings from local artists and blankets made out of the wool from Wark Farm sheep. The flat has attractive views over the farm and surrounding countryside. There is ample parking at the door of the property. (Note: the farm is normally centrally heated via the farms bio-fuel but the system needs repairs so heating is currently via electric heaters which heat up the place nicely as well) Enjoy the tranquility and take an easy walk on the farm, which is home to a number of traditional breeds of Scottish farm animals, such as our beautiful Belted Galloway cows and Hebridean sheep. Guests staying at the farm are able to buy Wark Farm products during their stay, should they wish to do so, including eggs and a range of fresh and cured meats such as steaks, bacon, lamb noisettes... Availability will vary, so best is to check on arrival. Wark Farm is a Royal Warrant holder and supplies the Prince of Wales with meat, testifying of its high quality. We also offer our well known delicious pies (frozen, to be baked in the oven), which depending on availability can be beef&onion, beef&cheese, lamb&prune or our vegan nutty carrot pie. Please note that the flat is self catering and being an active farm, the hosts will not always be available in person, but they can be reached via messages. There is WiFi on the farm, but occasionally the connection may be less optimal. Please note that when driving to the farm, you need to follow the sign for Wark Farm.
  • A lovely place to stay, which is well-placed for walking in the Cairngorms, etc! Laurel is a great host.

    Marc2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great wee spot if you're looking to get away from it all, but within a short drive from small towns. Very clear instructions on how to find it, lights and heating all on for our arrival, making it feel like a home from home. Very clean, and despite the central heating system not working, the Hayloft remained warm enough with electric heaters on a very cold and windy weekend. Plenty of hot water also. Great place for some time away from busy life and to explore Deeside.

    Karen2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We were looking for a farm B&B and found Laurel’s place. It was great fun... two friendly dogs and an assortment of farm animals. We stayed in the hayloft and were able to cook our own meals... Laurel was very accommodating and even lent us a rucksack for hiking... I’d highly recommend a stay here!

    Leslie2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice apartment. The dogs welcome you immediately. Nice environment

    Verena2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a truly unique AirBnB experience. Staying on a farm may not be their cup of tea, but we had a great time here. The space is large and comfortable, with all the anticipated amenities. No TV but that was JUST FINE! WiFi was available and fast, so anyone needing a TV fix could stream to an iPad if desired. The bed was divinely comfortable and the space was very clean. We had some anxiety around finding the place but Laurel’s instructions re: using Google Maps were accurate and we found the farm using Google maps when our TomTom GPS was having difficulty. We were greeted by two very friendly dogs, one of which, by the time we had unloaded our gear was waiting with a stick ready to play fetch. We played a couple of rounds but the continuing rain unfortunately put an end to that fun. Laurel left great information about the farm and instructions on how to walk the farm and visit any area that a guest would want to visit (if they want to). We’re sorry we only had one night here, as the space was very welcoming and enjoyable.

    John2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to chill out for the weekend.

    Andy2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Laurels place is lovely. Very spacious and an extremely comfortable bed. The two dogs were lovely too. Didnt have time to look around the grounds but what we did see looked very pretty.

    Jane2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Laurel was a very kind host and also offers local products from the farm, like meat and eggs, depending on what's currently available. A perfect retreat to get some rest from the hectic everyday life and to enjoy nature!

    We are situated on a quiet street but are set back so have very little traffic noise.

We have access to some beautiful walks with Glen Tanar and Loch Kinnord just a short drive away. We will be happy to point you in the direction of our favourite places and have Ordnance Survey maps for guests to borrow.
  • Gail was an incredible host for an amazing space! Modern and very clean amenities! The sauna was such a perk too! Gail even woke up early to bring us an ice scraper for our car wind screen! Will definitely return!

    Timothy2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Annex is a wonderful property and Gail was a superb host, she was on hand to give any tips on activities in the area and gave a very professional walk through of the property upon arrival. We felt comfortable and at home in the Annex, which was clean and felt very spacious. The sauna was an added treat, thanks again!

    Stephanos2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic cosy little place with a beautiful view and extremely comfy bed! so relaxing and such a warm welcome. Highly recommended!!

    Mo2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was ideal, with the cutest pub for dinner.

    A'Merica2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Super comfy bed, nice quiet room - I would have liked to have had more time to just chill there. Nice big shower, sauna is a real treat, and the kitchen area had everything I needed given most of my meals were with family staying in hotel nearby or at wedding. Gail was really accommodating.

    Hannah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The annex was stylish, sparkling clean, comfortable, and cosy. I very much enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend booking here.

    Light, airy spacious semi-detached cottage was the first to be built in the oldest village in Royal Deeside, Kincardine O’Neil. It's been lovingly refurbished with a warm & welcoming interior, with white walls offset by tasteful furnishings. A spacious kitchen/dining room & L-shaped living room both give way to a lovely south-facing enclosed garden with sitting-out area & lawn. On street parking, oil central heating. 1 pet allowed.
    On the ground floor is the living room with patio doors taking you out into the south facing garden. Airy kitchen and dining area including utility room and toilet. Complimentary tea, coffee and sugar along with high chair and children’s dishes & cutlery supplied. Spare room with sofa bed on the ground floor. Upstairs is the bedrooms and bathroom. Bedroom 1 has king size bed, bedroom 2 has 2 single beds which can be made up to a king size bed. As mentioned, Travel Cot is available along with high chair. Pets - 1 dog is allowed and dog blanket and bowl is provided. The cottage is 45 minute drive from Aberdeen / Dyce Airport. There are many great cycle routes all around this area; cycle or walk to the café in Potarch, 2 miles, along a designated route which hugs the majestic River Dee - a magnet for salmon and trout fishing. Excellent walks abound both from the surrounding countryside and two from the village itself, one taking you around the River Dee and the other takes you towards Kincardine Castle. Royal Deeside is famed for sparkling rivers, wooded hillsides and heather clad moors. Ballater is 30 minute drive, where you can head to Loch Muick for a wonderful walk around the loch. Crathie and Braemar 50 minute drive. Within surrounding area there’s some challenging walks up several munros, including Lochnagar, where you may spot deer, ptarmigans and mountain hares, or if you are really lucky, golden eagles. The burn o vat is between Aboyne and Ballater and worth a visit to see the views and waterfall, depending on season.
    The local Village Store is great for breakfast rolls or fresh sandwiches made to order. Gem shop which has beautiful jewellery and gifts. Good variety of local walks within the village. Plenty local coffee shops in Aboyne and Banchory, including pubs for lunch or dinner. There’s a large Garden centre called The Raemoir Garden centre with restaurant and cafe in Banchory. Golf courses nearby, Aboyne, Torphins and Banchory. Local supermarkets, Co op in Aboyne or Tesco and Morrison’s in Banchory. Lovely ice cream and chip shop over looking the green in Aboyne. The local Indian restaurant in Aboyne is a favourite with locals, take away also available.
  • Really well presented accommodation, spacious and clean. The stores opposite great for brekkie and packed lunches Chinese takeaway 2 mins away !

    Will2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at The Grove and it was just as great as the first. If there's a better value Airbnb out there I'd be amazed. The house is excellent and superbly kitted out. Lots of nice touches that set it apart from usual holiday let's. Most definitely will stay again when visiting the area.

    Euan2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Stuart2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Jennifer2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a delightful cottage - surprisingly spacious, very clean and warm and excellent equipped. Great location with walks, shops and a decent Chinese take away just across the road.

    David2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is deceptively large inside and was clean and warm. Suzanne had provided not only a travel cot and highchair for my young children, but there was also plastic cutlery and plates provided which was unexpected and a pleasant surprise. Kincardine O'Neil is pretty quiet but you are only 5 minutes away from the larger Aboyne and we had a very tasty fish supper from the chip shop there!

    Francesca2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was spotless and Suzanne was a great host with lots of great tips for places to go/things to see.

    Close to great views and hikes, quiet and peaceful, this self-contained mini chalet is great for solo or couple adventurers, and those seeking a peaceful retreat. Glamping at its best, its not for the 5-star brigade. Clean + cosy with its own kitchen and bathroom – accessible from outside, adding to a feeling of being in the wild, yet retaining modern comforts you’re sure to enjoy your stay in this one-of-a-kind home. Rentals of one month or more from £495-£895 pcm!
    Den of Allachlade (or Den of Marmalade as we like to call it - long story) has been "mine" (Vicki) since 1993 when I was pregnant with my daughter, Jessica. It has morphed through several stages, survived divorce, accommodated therapy, workshops, all sorts of weird and wonderful events and has seen the transformation of many beautiful folk. It really has a special vibe to it, a Scottish twist on a Laurel Canyon type commune! It somehow manages to be family home, therapy center and base for travelers, professional nomads, volunteers, holidaymakers, spiritual seekers... all in one go. Regular guests are my daughter Jessica when she is home from Glasgow, Kacper, provider of scrumptious food, blogger and intrepid digi nomad. Last but not least Felix the cat. And… my fingers are crossed as I write this, a Mummy deer took rest at the bottom of the garden when giving birth in the summer of 2018 and she and the baby are still regular visitors, it is quite lovely to see them so close. As for me, I am an author - 2nd book coming up! Hypnotherapist, NLP-er, etc, etc. I am an active meditator and Sanyasin. I work mostly from home and as little as possible in Aberdeen :) If you would like to join our motley crew, we take paying guests, part paying guests (house-sitters), karmic yogis and woofers, just get in touch! When we are at home, we love to provide therapy and teaching as optional extras go ahead and enquire if you’d like to know more. We do our best to make your stay special without getting in your face - tell us what you need. In the Fairy Penthouse you benefit from being totally detached from the main house and having your own access to the bedroom via the garden. The room has a super comfy double cabin bed and TV. In the nice weather you can lie in bed looking on to the garden and eat dinner on your own wee balcony The shower room and kitchen are downstairs accessed via outside from the drive of the main house. Kitchen has a mini fridge, microwave, 4 plate hob, George Foreman Grill, washing machine (shared with the main house), kettle and toaster. Let me know if you want a table and chairs for outside.
    There are river walks a stones throw from the property, and plenty of longer woodland and hill walks and stone circles to see in the area. For the sporty, golf courses abound, and water skiing is about a 5 minute drive away. Alternatively pop along to the new outdoor swimming pool at Stonehaven, a beautiful harbour town along the East coast not far from Dunnotar Castle. In August and September there are several highland games taking place in the area.
  • Nice and cozy apartment, nice hosts, uncomplicated check-in / out.

    Melissa2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

    Luzelle2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • I came here in the middle of November after an impulse booking, and absolutely loved it. It was freezing outside, but the cabin was nice and toasty, had all facilities for showering and cooking, and was very quiet.There are some cute cafes around Aboyne too, and lots of nice walking trails. Very nice for a quick getaway when you need a moment to yourself! Thank you!

    Toni2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place to stay in a very peaceful part of Aboyne. We stayed there for one night as a short stopover and Vicki's place was everything we expected. Very comfy and cosy. 5 minutes walk from the town.

    Murray2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely stay at Vicki's place, even though we were only there for a short period of time. It was super clean, well equipped and had literally the comfiest bed I've ever slept in. Also loved all the personal touches.

    Gemma2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely quiet retreat in the garden. The facilities are excellent and everything reflects Vicki’s attention to detail. A warm welcome rounds off a really nice stay. Thanks

    Aboyne, Scotland, United Kingdom

    Rural property , with views over Deeside, Lochnagar and the Cairngorms. On a good route to both Aberdeen and the Cairngorm Mountains. Ideal for outdoor folk, who either need a night or two to ‘catch up ‘ and are looking for a warm bed, hot shower, use of a well equipped kitchen, a washing machine or for somewhere a bit longer, there are facilities to sort and store outdoor gear The cottage is not posh, a little dated and in need of decorating, but it is clean, warm, relaxed and comfortable
    The house is a traditional one and a half storey Aberdeenshire granite house built around 1800 on one of the old military roads. We are the last property before the lane becomes an old drove that leads down to Lumphanan village or up through woods and open moor. I offer a reasonably priced room for travellers who don’t need a ‘homes and garden’ type accommodation as I enjoy meeting new people. I’m easy going and find my guests accept the hospitality the way in which it is offered We have the original fireplace with a swing arm that used to used for cooking, we now have an Aga in the kitchen for you to cook on and a wood burner you are welcome to chill out or warm up in front of. For a single traveler or a couple you have your double bedroom and the use of a small sitting room, both with amazing views. Or you are welcome to share my space. For those wanting the use of two beds - if not a couple, you have the two upstairs bedrooms with fabulous views. My kitchen is a reasonable size with everything you should need, and a dining table. you are welcome to sit in the conservatory or out in the garden (possibly with the two pet sheep!)
    We are on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park and within easy distance of it and Royal Deeside. Aboyne is a picturesque small town 10 miles away with everything you could need and a few village shops and pubs within easy reach. Aberdeen is just 30 miles away, yet we really feel remote and secluded There are no close neighbours. The nearest is 100m or more away. Only 3 houses in our 400m unmade private track ( we are the last house before the road becomes a walk to the village) The small quiet hamlet of tulluchvenus is at the junction with the main road. The views from the bedrooms are a bit special.
  • Great place to stay, I’m a beautiful and rural part of Scotland. Although my stay was brief, Jo was very accommodating and it was really a pleasure staying in her lovely cottage. The room was super cozy with a great view of the surrounding hills. I highly recommend!

    Hannah2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was a delight to stay with Jo (and her dogs 😊). The true spirit of Airbnb, really sharing the spaces and having good conversations. I even learnt how to cook on an Aga! The cottage is wonderfully remote too, the silence is beautiful

    Roy2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jo’s house is like a home from home! We were made to feel very welcome (even offered a lovely cup of tea when arriving!) and everything was very homely. Great value for money and a perfect place to stay in a beautiful location!

    Linda2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Jo's place. She was very welcoming and easy to get along. You must like dogs if you stay there but the animals are really cute. The location is ideal as a starting point for hikes in the Cairngorms National Park or to visit some of the pretty castles in the area.

    Inka2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jo is a lovely person. We enjoyed our time there. Beautiful views!

    Ella & John-Henry2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • We were very happy with our brief stay in Jo's 'Cosy Cottage'! The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, and Jo was a very friendly and helpful host - especially with our 2 slightly anti-social dogs... It was amazingly good value, and we highly recommend it!

    Sue2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Jo is very welcoming. Our stay was perfect during our road trip. Beds were really comfy.

    Alice2019-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for letting me stay at your home. Hosting fantastic, lovely home and a stunning location. Just hoping I get the opportunity to stay again soon. Thank you once again.

  • Pandy is an amazing host! Very friendly and helpful. The room was great, clean and very nice and I was free to use the kitchen, too. Aboyne is a lovely town and not far away from the Cairngorms National Park where you can go for a hike. Pandy even showed me around in Aberdeen, which is also a beautiful city. I enjoyed my time in Aberdeenshire and definitely recommend Pandy's Airbnb!

We are positioned near the centre of Alford, just off the main street. Private off-street parking is available in the driveway. Pets are welcome, however we do ask that you arrange with us prior to booking. We have two friendly dogs that share the garden.
    The cabin is comprised of a double bed, seating area, ample storage space, and an en-suite shower room. Fresh linen and towels are provided. It is also well insulated and double glazed with electric heating throughout. Tea and coffee making facilities are also available. The cabin looks out over our back garden - it is lovely waking up to the sound of nature outside in this peaceful area. Please note, there are two steps up to the cabin.
    Alford is a friendly village, situated within easy driving distance of a range of local attractions, Within the village itself is the Grampian Transport Museum and Alford Heritage Centre, while a short five minute walk will take you to Haughton Country Park for a stroll through woods and along the River Don. A range of other attractions are also available within travelling distance, including castles (e.g. Craigievar and Kildrummy), walks (e.g. Bennachie, Pitfichie Forest), and a range of whisky distilleries.
  • Really good stay in the cabin. Comfy bed, cosy even in the winter. Would not hesitate to book this cabin again

    Once a working water mill, this traditional granite property is now a charming home with bags of character and beautiful views over the fields, forests and hills of Royal Deeside.

  • Great place we will return

    Amanda2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Can’t recommend this place enough, excellent accommodation in a beautiful location with amazing hosts, I look forward to our next visit.

    Rory2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • I have nothing bad to say about our stay at Coull Mill. The place itself was immaculate, warm and so inviting. Our hosts were brilliant and kept us well informed about our stay. Pictures don’t do this wonderful house justice, so much effort has gone into making it a home from home. My family had such a great time here that we are thinking of a summer visit at some point. Great value for money, everything we needed was in the house from extra towels to plenty of kitchen essentials. I can’t recommend this place highly enough, go see for yourself and experience a wonderful house in an amazing part of Scotland. Christine, Martin and family x

    Christine2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second visit and the mill was as lovely as we remembered. It was also beautifully warm during a very cold spell.

    David2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderfully relaxing stay in the Mill. Beautifully decorated with everything you could wish for. Delicious scones on arrival, beautiful forest walks & Stuart & Val had put out a Xmas tree for us to decorate as our own Xmas away from home. A great place to stay & explore the Highlands.

    Narree2019-12-27T00:00:00Z

    Graeme2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Mill exceeded our expectations, extremely comfortable, stylish and set in the most splendid countryside. Superb value for money and a great base for exploring the Cairngorms. Would definitely visit against. Stuart and Val are great hosts and have a gem of a place.

    Old Mains Cottage is a traditional character cottage that has been extensively modernised. Originally this cottage was the laundry of a mansion house that once stood in the adjacent woods. The cottage stands in its own large private grounds & is accessed via a private road. (To be clear, this property is an entire centrally heated house within its own extensive private grounds and it is not a ‘designer’ garden shed in someone’s back garden with zero facilities beyond a bed and a Portaloo!)
    Old Mains Cottage is situated approximately five miles from the town of Alford, being situated in the Aberdeenshire countryside between Royal Deeside and Donside. The cottage makes the ideal holiday home to relax in or to use as a base to explore the wonderful sites of Aberdeenshire, Moray and beyond into the Cairngorms. Both coastline and mountains are easily accessed and with an abundance of sites and attractions, including the world famous whisky and castle trails, both couples and families will have plenty to do in this most magnificent part of Scotland.
    The cottage sits in its own large private grounds. Many National Trust properties are within easy driving distance. There are also numerous forest trails, hill/mountain walks, outdoor swimming sites, museums, steam railways horse trekking and picnicing areas.
  • David was a very sweet and accommodating host. They cottage was gorgeous with a nice Norwegian feel. The wood burner completed overall coziness and made for pleasant evenings

    Mads2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Much bigger than it looked on the photos, really nice location - could hear owls at night and it was lovely to wake up to the view over the fields. The house was well appointed, had all we needed and David and Anne answered quickly and were really helpful. A really nice place at a fantastic price!

    Dave2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • A very well appointed and charming cottage that offers complete peace and quiet. All the amenities you would need were there and David was very helpful with my initial questions to settle in. It's a very good base to explore the coast (north and east) and the mountains. Highly recommended!

    Hardy2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay peacefully setting cottage very clean and met all our needs. Well equipped kitchen and the two wood burning stoves is a wonderful bonus.

    Dorrett2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We spent Christmas here and loved it. We've spent a few holidays in rural Aberdeenshire, and this was by far the best accommodation we've had. Great location, peaceful, comfortable, everything we had hoped for - thank you!

    Robert2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don't do this little house justice. We were concerned it might be a bit small, but the house is more spacious than the photos make it look, and yet still manages to be cosy. It's an excellent location for exploring the area. The Nordic decor is lovely, and the provision of some basic groceries was very much appreciated after a 9 hour drive! A smashing little place to stay, and very quiet and tucked away.

    Nicola2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our short stay in this cosy cottage - quiet, comfortable and with nice Norwegian touches throughout. A great spot for exploring the local area!

    Ann2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • What a find! Truly the best Airbnb we've ever stayed in. Such a friendly arrival we were welcomed into the cosy home away from home with a comfy bed, lovely styling and best of all a logburner. It was a wild night outside but we were snug as a bug. There is a wee annexe private kitchen stocked with goodies and bathroom with a great shower. The loveliest touches such as home made bread with marmalade just made our stay all better. The little touches made our stay all the better and we shall definitely make a special trip to return. I could not recommend Gayl and her family high enough. Thank you!

    Ashe2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fantastic stay! Gayl, Pete and Thomas made sure we felt right at home. Also went out of the way to make sure we had everything we needed for our 9 month old baby - couldn't be happier! Clean, cosy place, and a great mix of homeliness and independence. And big kudos for Thomas and his rubbish club - inspirational work!!

    Benjamin2019-10-28T00:00:00Z

    Jill2019-11-10T00:00:00Z

    Eleanor2019-10-13T00:00:00Z

    This beautiful self-contained annex has been described as a small hotel. Creatively designed to give its narrow shape a ship like quality it is clean, cosy & close to great views & hikes, offering a peaceful retreat for quiet souls & country lovers. Ideal for 2, with potential to sleep 3 - a couple & child or 3 close friends (the shower is inside the bedroom) & the 3-bed set up inhibits the living space. Kitchen is & fully equipped & there's lots of choice for eating out. Enquire for long term.
    Den of Allachlade (or Den of Marmalade as we like to call it - long story) has been "mine" (Vicki) since 1993 when I was pregnant with my daughter, Jessica. It has morphed through several stages, survived divorce, accommodated therapy, workshops, all sorts of weird and wonderful events and has seen the transformation of many beautiful folk. It really has a special vibe to it, a Scottish twist on a Laurel Canyon type commune! It somehow manages to be family home, therapy centre and base for travellers, professional nomads, volunteers, holidaymakers, spiritual seekers... all in one go. Regular guests are my daughter Jessica when she is home from Glasgow, Kacper, provider of scrumptious food, blogger and intrepid digi nomad and… my fingers are crossed as I write this, a Mummy deer took rest at the bottom of the garden when giving birth in the summer of 2018 and she and the baby are still regular visitors, it is quite lovely to see them so close. As for me, I am an author - 2nd book coming up! Hypnotherapist, NLP-er, etc, etc. I am an active meditator and Sanyasin. I work mostly from home and as little as possible in Aberdeen :) If you would like to join our motley crew, we take paying guests, part paying guests, house-sitters, karmic yogis and woofers, just get in touch! When we are at home, we love to provide therapy and teaching as optional extras go ahead and enquire if you’d like to know more. We do our best to make your stay special without getting in your face - tell us what you need. In the East Annex you benefit from your personal porch with a small table and chairs which opens into a lovely seating area, which leads into the well-equipped kitchen. There's a lovely sunroom with a window-seat, strewn with comfy cushions and the double bedroom has en-suite shower inside on open plan. The window-seat area can work as a make-up single bedroom, and we can also put up a fold-down bed in the porch seating area or you can use the red chaise lounge, however, we have no window covering there, so a no-no for anyone who needs blackout! Please be aware that the main house will be rented out over Winter to guests also, so please be aware of noise levels so as not to disturb other guests.
    Aboyne is a quiet village. Enough so that in the morning it's quite common to see grazing deer in the fields or even in our garden. Have a look at the guide to see the local points of interest (there's way more than in here). It's a great place to come and relax, far away from the hustle and bustle of cities. Aboyne (Scots: Abyne, Scottish Gaelic: Abèidh) is a village on the edge of the Highlands in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, on the River Dee, approximately 26 miles (42 km) west of Aberdeen. It has a swimming pool at Aboyne Academy, all-weather tennis courts, a bowling green and is home to the oldest 18 hole Golf course on Royal Deeside. Aboyne Castle and the Loch of Aboyne are nearby. Outdoor pursuits include golf, walking, cycling, and gliding from the airfield just outside the village. Aboyne has become popular with gliding enthusiasts from Britain and Europe due to its suitable air currents (due to the surrounding terrain). The airfield has two parallel tarmac runways running east-west, a webcam and small weather-monitoring centre on its premises.
  • Great location; very nice and helpful host: great and clean accommodation.

    Agnieszka2019-12-26T00:00:00Z

    Charlotte2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • A very good value stay in Aboyne. We slept two adults comfortably, one on the double bed and one on the couch with a mattress in the front room.

    Howard2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Hospitable host, quiet and private annex to the host's house. The host is welcoming and has a set of strict houserules that work very well to make everyone's life easy. The sitting area of the annex has a window to the host's lounge, so that area is not completely private. Be aware that the host occasionally needs access to use the washing machine in the annex. Good value for money for a stay in Aboyne.

    Joris2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, cosy and lovely perfect for solo travelers exploring around Aberdeenshire nice places from castles and Lochs. Vicki is amazing host and her place super cool. To all my friends and those who like to visit Aboyne and discover tremendous places in Aberdeenshire, Vicki’s place is highly recommended.

    Mazigh2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had everything we needed and felt right at home. We were unsure about getting around by public transport, so we were pleasantly surprised to find the bus stops right out front! Some walks nearby would be easier to access by car, but we found plenty to explore. We would absolutely recommend staying here.

    Lydia2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed overnight for a wedding. The east annex is a lovely little space. Everything you could want and we’ll thought out. Vicki is a warm and welcoming host.

  • The small appartment next to Vicki’s house was exactly what we expected : clean, cosy and comfy ! Vicki was very helpful and she even made a table appear just like magic. Perfect to explore this side of Cairngorms !

Lisa was a great host, gave such good recommendations and was very helpful! Will 100% recommend this place to friends and family! X

    Rebecca2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is absolutely stunning. Fireplace, comfortable bed, stylish design, lovely garden and amazing jacuzzi! Honestly cannot recommend this venue enough. We were so lucky to have a clear night and we could see the whole sky and stars whilst in the jazuzzi. It was magical. Thank you again Lisa! We will be back :)

    Simona2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

  • Lisa and Sacha’s place was a perfect place to stay. It is so peaceful. The rooms are very comfortable. Having our own lounge and dining area was a bonus. Dinner at the nearby pub was delicious. Sacha kindly drove us and it was 10 minute taxi ride home. We would definitely recommend staying here.

  • A beautiful cottage in such fabulous countryside. The best night’s sleep I’ve had in ages! Highly recommend!

    Anna2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very cosy cottage with beautiful decor and it had all the essential facilities

    Laura2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • After a very cold day walking, we arrived at Emily’s cottage tired and chilly. We soon relaxed in the beautiful living room in front of a fantastic wood burner that gave off a lovely cosy heat. Our host popped in with extra washing up liquid and to make sure we were ok which was a really kind touch. We were too tired to go out to have something to eat but with the well equipped dining kitchen we were able to sit down to a nice meal that was easy to cook. Playing a few games and watching a bit of telly before making use of the beautifully decorated bedrooms was very relaxing. Emily accommodated our later check out request which meant our teenage daughters got an extra lie in and we were all able to use the lovely bathroom and fantastic shower before leaving. Although we were only there one night we felt like we really had a good break away and would love to come back to explore the area more perhaps in some nice hot sunny weather! Thanks so much for being a great host. X

    Joanne2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time staying at the cottage! Great amenities, very helpful and quickly responding host! Sitting at the fire place after a full day of hiking was absolutely amazing! Can only highly recommend the cottage for a peaceful and quite time away close to the Cairngorms and the coast!

    Anna2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great few nights in the cottage-it was cosy, clean and well equipped with everything we needed. It is set in beautiful countryside with lovely views. I would recommend this for anyone looking to get away from it all - it’s a very peaceful location.

    Gemma2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Lawrence2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Don't hesitate to book. The area is fascinating, loads to do including castles and lovely hikes. The cottage is the perfect place to relax and thaw after a day in the hills. It's spacious and comfortable and the fireplace is super cosy.

    Stewart2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • I loved this cottage. It was so cozy in front of the fire. It was very relaxing waking up to that sunlight and having a coffee in the window seat. Spacious kitchen. Best water pressure in the shower I have come across in Scotland. I would highly recommend this place to stay if you want to wind down.

  • This is a great place to stay if you like peace and quiet but not be to remote, May is a fabulous host always helpful and cheerful. Everything needed for a long stay is included too and the log burner was brilliant, we stayed from early Dec 2019 to the end of Jan 2020 and never used the electric heaters as the fire put out so much heat. Overall cosy clean and tidy we could not fault anything.

    Michael2020-01-31T00:00:00Z

    Nearby iconic Craigievar Castle (2 miles away) was the inspiration for Walt Disney’s fairytale castle.
  • Frances and James were fantastic hosts during our stay and made my group of guests feel incredibly welcome throughout our time with them. They checked in with us during our visit, making sure that everything was going well and if there was anything else they could do at all. Nothing seemed to be too much to ask, even offering to drive us into the nearest town when it started snowing. Their beautifully kept home was perfect for relaxing over the weekend. I would thoroughly recommend staying here for anyone looking to visit Aberdeenshire or just looking for time away from a busy life.

    Craig2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Luxury! The Steading has been converted to a fantastic standard . Moreover, the homely furbishings are again to a very high -end . Although the physical comfort of the steading was excellent, what set the experience apart , was the hospitality which Frances & James afforded us . Lovely home and even lovelier people ! XxG

    Gwen2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

The indoor space is immaculate, the suite is well equipped with a very comfortable bed and a great high pressure shower. There is also a nice outdoor space with use of barbeque if required. Catherine was friendly and helpful but gave us privacy to enjoy our holiday. Great place to stay, would definitely recommend.

    Gordon2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Catherines place was an ideal place for our exploration of Aberdeenshire and the Cairngorms, two very contrasting landscapes. Aberdeenshire full of golden barley and oat fields over rolling hills and valleys. Small villages with stonebuilt houses dotted everywhere, protected by pretty stately trees and hedges. And I dont need to describe the Cairngorms, they explain themselves, vast, iimpressive even from our cursory expeditions. We would recommend Catherines place highly for couples expecting comfortable, clean and welcoming accommodation.

    Dermot2019-08-24T00:00:00Z

    Judith2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Rhys & Rachel's place is beautifly designed and has an aura of warmth and cosiness. We loved the fact that the bedrooms and corresponding bathrooms are on the opposite sides of the cottage and are joined together by a lovely living room/kitchen area. If you love boardgames or dvds - you're all set! If you like cooking and baking, this kitchen is probably best equipped self catering kitchen I've ever seen (I mean really, it even has a scale and a hand mixer! - yes, we made cookies 🍪). I can't say a bad word about the place. As for hosts, we didn't meet them, but the communication was so great! They are VERY helpful (they even received our Tesco delivery, when we were running late). They also bought a new baby bath and a cot with bassinet (we were travellingwith a baby), for which we are so thankful. On arrival we were grated by a lovely bag of fresh coffee and some home grown potatoes and some chocolates 😍 I really can't recommend this place more!

    Our traditional property looks out onto the beautiful countryside of Aberdeenshire. It is lovely property with a matured peaceful garden. A warm welcome awaits you with peace and quiet, stunning views and wildlife.
    Stunning countryside location. Beautiful old granite school house with an exceptional view of the landscape and mountains. With lots to discover and plenty of clean fresh air in the highlands which is on the outskirts of the Cairngorms National Park, peace and tranquillity await you here upon your return at the end of each exciting day. Nice living space, well equipped kitchen area and bathroom with a bath and shower. The property features tiled flooring in the kitchen with underfloor heating and carpets in the rest of the house apart from the bathroom. The property is centrally heated by our wood burning stove. There is a big space for parking at the side of the property and many places to go on walks or bike rides. If your stay is in term time, depending on how many guests are living here, myself and my son will be staying up in our converted loft space and would share the living spaces.
    Set in the beautiful countryside 2 miles from the small village of Tarland, 3 miles from Aboyne which is the nearest town and approximately 30 miles from the city of Aberdeen.

    Cute & quirky self-contained studio offering a peaceful retreat close to great hikes. It has a comfy double and the floor space is tiny with only 2 chairs at the table inside. The wet room is small & kitchen facilities basic but idyllically beautiful, quiet & peaceful. t really depends on what you want, but there are few places this serene and peaceful and with your own area of decking and outdoor dining. You are also welcome to enjoy my garden.
    Den of Allachlade (or Den of Marmalade as we like to call it - long story) has been "mine" (Vicki) since 1993 when I was pregnant with my daughter, Jessica. It has morphed through several stages, survived divorce, accommodated therapy, workshops, all sorts of weird and wonderful events and has seen the transformation of many beautiful folk. It really has a special vibe to it, a Scottish twist on a Laurel Canyon type commune! It somehow manages to be family home, therapy center and base for travelers, professional nomads, volunteers, holidaymakers, spiritual seekers... all in one go. Regular guests are my daughter Jessica when she is home from Glasgow, Kacper, provider of scrumptious food, blogger and intrepid digi nomad, and… my fingers are crossed as I write this, a Mummy deer took rest at the bottom of the garden when giving birth in the summer of 2018 and she and the baby are still regular visitors, it is quite lovely to see them so close. As for me, I am an author - 2nd book coming up! Hypnotherapist, NLP-er, etc, etc. I am an active meditator and Sanyasin. I work mostly from home and as little as possible in Aberdeen :) If you would like to join our motley crew, we take paying guests, part paying guests (house-sitters), karmic yogis and woofers, just get in touch! When we are at home, we love to provide therapy and teaching as optional extras go ahead and enquire if you’d like to know more. We do our best to make your stay special without getting in your face - tell us what you need. In the Garden Studio you benefit from being the most southerly facing room giving you a feeling of total detachment with only the hills to look back at you. You have your own access via the garden. The room has a super comfy double cabin bed and TV. In the nice weather you can lie in bed looking out and eat dinner on your own area of decking. The wet room is very small but sufficient as a basic shower and toilet and kitchenette just manages to squeeze everything in that you need to cook a proper meal.
    Aboyne (Scots: Abyne, Scottish Gaelic: Abèidh) is a village on the edge of the Highlands in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, on the River Dee, approximately 26 miles (42 km) west of Aberdeen. It has a swimming pool at Aboyne Academy, all-weather tennis courts, a bowling green and is home to the oldest 18 hole Golf course on Royal Deeside. Aboyne Castle and the Loch of Aboyne are nearby. Outdoor pursuits include golf, walking, cycling, and gliding from the airfield just outside the village. Aboyne has become popular with gliding enthusiasts from Britain and Europe due to its suitable air currents (due to the surrounding terrain). The airfield has two parallel tarmac runways running east-west, a webcam and small weather-monitoring centre on its premises.
  • We had a lovely stay in the little garden studio. it was perfect for our weekend away and had all we needed. the view into the cairngorms is lovely, and there was many nice walks nearby - we would recommend the standing stone circle, burn o vat, and glen tanar national park. there is also an earth house nearby from the bronze age that you can drive to and walk into. We were a little under-whelmed by the local leaflets of things to do nearby provided in the studio - the leaflets were all quite old and also of things that were far north, we ended up adding our own found in a local pub. The spider on a bicycle cafe was nice, as was at 'the sign of the black face sheep'. The extra duvet was needed at night as it was freezing, and even during the day in the studio we had to wear layers of jumpers and scarves to keep warm. "

  • The Garden studio was a lovely, comfortable, peaceful place to stay for the night, I loved the style of the cabin studio, the terrace and the view. It was just great to pull back the curtains in the morning (after a very good rest) and let the light flood in and see the fields and forested hills. It was a tight space, but that was clear on the description and I found it very cosy. I would definitely come back and stay for more than a night :)

  • Wonderful little private guest cottage. It’s petite but well designed and very functional. Perfect location for exploring the highlands, fishing in the Dee, or just relaxing.

    Glencommon is a quintessential basic farm cottage, just outside Banchory, overlooking the Dee valley. The cottage has two spacious double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. Downstairs there is a cosy living room with a wood burning stove, a kitchen and a second bathroom with shower. The cottage has a lovely view over the valley and Scolty Hill, a local landmark. The area is a popular location for road cycling, mountain biking, hill walking, kayaking, fishing and playing golf.
    Glencommon was our main home before we built a contemporary house close by the old cottage. It is an old farm that can be found on Ordnance Survey maps of the mid 1800’s. The cottage is still mostly in it’s traditional basic style. Cooking and central heating of the property is done by an Aga style stove which is located in the main kitchen. The second kitchen has recently been updated and has a washing machine, a dishwasher and an electric cooker. Both bathrooms have also been updated. Both bedrooms and bathrooms have central heating. A walled garden surrounds the cottage. There are two more mattresses in the cottage which can be used for additional guests. The cottage has two good size double bedrooms. If you would need more space we also have the stable for rent (£45.-). The stable can be found on Airbnb too. From the house various castles, amongst which Balmoral Castle, whiskey trails and the Cairngorms national park can be visited. Glencommon cottage and garden is fully available for guests during their stay. The property offers ample room to clean, dry and safely store outdoor equipment.
    The cottage is in a rural area. The inchmarlo golf course and the river Dee are closed by. Dogs can be walked from the house.
  • Glencommon cottage is a terrific property set within a farm. The facilities are very good and its pretty spacious for a family group. Its very quiet and the beds are very comfortable. Nicely located to Banchory which is a nice little town with some great eateries. Its good to have the hosts living next door and they are very helpful and hospitable. For navigation make sure you set Glencommon Farm Cottage on Google maps.

    Jane2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Glencommon Farm it's really a beautiful place to stay, much much more beautiful than what you could expect from the pictures! It's peaceful and quite, rural but with all the comforts you might need and perfectly clean, and the view from the cottage it's wonderful. The kitchen is fully equipped and the cottage it's tastefully furnished. We had a great time in the cottage and we really hope to come back!

  • We had a really lovely stay at Glencommon Farm. The cottage was very welcoming, clean, and well stocked with the basics. The beds were comfortable and the wood burner gave a nice atmosphere in the living room. The location was perfect for our planned activities and offered easy access to Banchory for anything we needed. Chicken watching was most entertaining and the views across the valley are stunning. We highly recommend this property!
