Ballater 6 miles. These charming bespoke timer clad lodges are superbly located in Glengairn in the heart of Royal Deeside, within the Cairngorms National Park, 6 miles from the village of Ballater. The cottages have been built and designed to a high standard, and benefit from having the River Gairn running at the bottom of the garden where, in season, brown trout can be freely fished. These Ballater cottages would be ideal for a family or group of friends who want to spend time in one of Scotland's most desirable areas, brimming with wonderful outdoor sporting opportunities, stunning scenery and diverse wildlife. With the accommodation on one level, these cottages each have two well-presented bedrooms and a contemporary shower room. The large open plan living areas at these cottages exude quality and style, including cosy multi-fuel stoves, and the smart kitchens are very well-equipped. From the dining areas, French doors open to a decked area ideal for alfresco dining or a pre-dinner drink. The village of Ballater is just 6 miles away and has excellent facilities and shops, and even boast its own visitor centre housed within the old Ballater Station, containing Queen Victoria's waiting room complete with her royal carriage! The famous Balmoral Castle is a 10 minute drive from Gairnshiel, and a trip to Royal Deeside would not be complete without a visit. For walking enthusiasts there are an abundance of walks, from a simple stroll up Craigendarroch to a harder hike up Lochnagar. The area is bursting with things to do but at the end of a busy day you will love the utter comfort of these Ballater cottages.
