The place

This is definitely a place to come and live in the slow lane for a few days. There’s not much but woods and field for miles and you’ll be tempted to stock up, settle in and ditch the car for the whole time you’re here. With the hot tub and pizza oven to make use of, you won’t regret it if you do. You can walk the dog along the lane or round the fields, then settle him down on the deck and have a big family nap. On the other hand, there’s a lot in Aberdeenshire worth seeing and doing, from the downhill bike trails on the Glenlivet Estate to the hike up Bennachie or walks on the lovely beaches of Cullen, Sunnyside and more. Throw in a visit to one of the many local distilleries or a locally sourced meal at a fine country pub and you’ve got the perfect few days of indulgence and relaxation.

In the neighbourhood

  • The Whisky Trail is not so much an official tour as an acknowledgement of the fact that there are enough distilleries in the area that some of them have their own category – Speyside malts. Glendronach and Glenfiddich are on the doorstep and worth a visit
  • The Flying Stag at Braemar is part of the fabulous Fife Arms Hotel and a great dog-friendly stop for food and drink. The Kale Yard Bistro (part of Boat House Hotel) has absolutely divine food with much home-grown produce from their walled garden
  • The Copper Dog has a really warm and welcoming staff to both dogs and their humans. Dogs are welcome in both the outdoor and indoor seating areas. Their food is locally sourced and delicious.
  • Cullen, Sandend and Findhorn are the owners particular favourite beaches, along with Sunnyside for the lovely rock pools, although Sunnyside takes a mile of walking from the car park to reach
  • The Glenlivet Estate has fabulous mountain bike trails and Tarland Trails is fabulous for children while still being a challenge for adults with its graded trails situated in Drummy Woods, Tarland
  • The Lecht winter snow skiing and summer outdoor sports centre is only an hour away in the car and Aviemore’s slopes are only a little further away
