The Den of Allachlade in Aboyne
Our place is a family home at the edge of the village looking onto the most amazing view. It has three self-catering accommodations: a glamping cottage, an annex and a glamping studio.
A Scottish twist on a Laurel Canyon type commune, with a massive helping of home style luxury, Den of Allachlade has been home since October 1993. My daughter, Jessica, was born here and the property has morphed through several stages in parallel to our lives. It has borne witness to family, therapy, workshops, all sorts of weird and wonderful events and the transformation of many beautiful people. Someone once told me it was built on the site of an ancient temple, true or fantasy, the place has a special vibe to it and somehow manages to be home, therapy centre, base for travellers, professional nomads, volunteers, holidaymakers, spiritual seekers, all in one go. The property boasts three (four depending on how I split it) self-contained AirBnB lodgings in the stunning scenery of Aberdeenshire. Overlooking fields running towards the River Dee, the views of nature are simply breath-taking. Amongst the many human visitors, there is also a family of deer who can be seen grazing and frolicking just at the edge of garden. Then there’s the pheasant family: Charlie, the dad can be seen strutting his path daily, and mum, Priscilla, is rather partial to a mud bath. As your host, I’d love to introduce you to these, my daily joys, and so much more in the surrounding area where I am so grateful to live.
Each of our “chalets” has a great shower and a super comfy double cabin bed. The vibe of the place lends itself to country lovers, creatives and those seeking a quiet retreat. Each of our “chalets” has individual cooking facilities plus a BBQ and use of the pizza oven, bonfire and room for bikes.
