This large country home sits between Ballater and Braemar in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, the UK’s largest National Park. Private and secluded yet within easy reach of the main arterial roads with routes to Aberdeen, Inverness, Perth and Edinburgh, you’ll be able to tour the very best the Scottish Highlands has to offer.  

The property has a well-appointed interior, clean and well presented with a classic/contemporary Scottish theme throughout. This former Coaching Inn is well situated for groups looking to enjoy weekend house parties or longer getaways in a beautiful part of Royal Deeside.

  • Reception Rooms
    This property was once a Coaching Inn which means there’s plenty of social space for groups to congregate.  There’s a very generous reception/dining space with a table that allows the whole group to come together for meals.  Chesterfield style sofas and armchairs are grouped around coffee tables providing lots of opportunity for break out groups to gather in conversation and there’s a piano for after meal sing songs.   

    Games, Pool & Bar Area
    The TV/games room with pool table, wood-burning stove and bar is another popular hang-out.  It incorporates the original hotel bar which the owners are happy (with notice) to install a keg of beer so groups can pull their own pints! The bar also has a bottle fridge and Guinness Surger (which to the uninitiated) is a clever gadget that helps create the infamous creamy ‘head’ on top of the pint.

    Ground Floor Accommodation
    For guests with mobility issues, a ground floor double bedroom with ensuite bathroom can be made available on request.  There are also two downstairs lavatories, one of which is wheelchair friendly.  There’s also a boot room for storing coats, boots and sporting kit. 

  • There are 11 ensuite bedrooms, 10 are located on the first floor. One ground floor wheelchair accessible bedroom & bathroom can also be made available on request. 

    • 5 Twin/Double bedroom with ensuite bathroom

    En-suite wheelchair accessible wet room with toilet and handrails.

  • This lovely country holiday home sits in a mountain vista surrounded by fields and woodlands.  Alongside a very quiet country road it has plenty of parking to the rear of the building and lots of grassy areas to the side and rear of the house, all safely gated and fenced for children and pets.  In fine weather, guests can make use of the outdoor furniture, summer house for al fresco meals and BBQ’s.  A football pitch will keep the children entertained. 

    Located in the Cairngorms National Park there will be plenty of hills and walking trails to explore.  For families the Landmark Forest Adventure Park in Carrbridge is a fun day out. For history buffs there are plenty of castles nearby, Braemar Castle being one of the closest on the doorstep.  And if you’re staying the second week in August, you’ll not want to miss out on the Ballater Highlands Games. 

    As far a shopping and amenities goes, Ballater has a village store, butcher shop, petrol station and hotels but for major shopping the nearest supermarket will be in Banchory, 23 miles away. 

    Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness airports are all between an hour and two and a half hours drive.

  • Group Types
    Due to prior bad experience this property will not accept bookings from all male/female groups whose sole purpose for the holiday is to celebrate a ‘stag or hen’ style get together/party. Any booking made where the purpose of the holiday is later found to fall into this category, will be cancelled without notice, or refund.

    Included in the rental
    Linen, towels, electricity, heating and fuel for the open fires will be included in the rental.
