Luxury Ballater Cottage sleeping up to 7 guests
Brow Cottage is a former gamekeepers house situated in the lower part of Glenkindie Estate and has an extensive private garden.
Blissfully set on the Glenkindie Estate, an active sporting and agricultural estate, these four lovely properties make ideal family getaways at any time of year. Brow Cottage (ref UK5512), a detached former gamekeepers house is situated on the lower part of the estate, half a mile from Tornahatnach, and has been lovingly converted into a super family home. There is a lovely bay window in the living room overlooking the extensive private garden and immediate grounds surrounding the house. The fully enclosed rear garden is ideal for younger members of the family or pets, while inside, the big family kitchen is the hub of the house where guests can gather to chat about the day’s events over a glass of wine or a meal. Winding your way up a private track through the magnificent Glenkindie Estate, you will happen upon Tornahatnach (ref UK5177), a charming 19th century detached cottage which has been lovingly converted into a fine holiday home.
Braemorlich (ref UK10381) is a modern and extremely cosy, detached cottage with stunning, elevated views over the surrounding farmland towards the Glenkindie and village of Towie. Situated along a rough track, it lies approximately 1½ miles from the other properties on-site. With numerous walks from the doorstep, this is a real peaceful retreat for couples or families with plenty of space around. Home Farm Cottage (ref UK10382) is in the heart of the estate and forms the wing of a lovely converted clock tower steading. Just 330 yards from Brow Cottage, with its own private garden, guests can enjoy the comings and goings of this sporting farm estate. Inside, the rooms are spacious and very well furnished and guests can explore their delightful surroundings with ease. Home Farm Cottage, Tornahatnach and Brow Cottage are conveniently located within walking distance of each other.
Glenkindie Estate is set amongst glorious scenery at the edge of the stunning Cairngorms National Park, where there are wonderful views in all directions. To the southeast is Royal Deeside, home to many fine castles including Balmoral Castle and several National Trust for Scotland properties. Kildrummy Castle and Gardens is also within easy reach and makes for a great day out. In late summer, the world-famous Braemar Gathering and Highland Games are well worth a visit, and for those who enjoy mountain sports, there are exceptional opportunities as many of the finest Munros (mountains over 3000ft) are found here. The annual Lonach Highland Gathering is also held locally. The Lecht nearby offers seasonal skiing and snowboarding when the conditions permit, and there is easy access to the famous Whisky Trail. The surrounding hills offer the perfect terrain for mountain bikers as well as many road-based cycle routes, whilst golfers can enjoy some lovely golf courses nearby, where visitors are always welcome. Riding in the area offers spectacular treks, and there are numerous wonderful walks available to take through this breathtaking countryside. Whatever time of year you come, there will always be things to see and do. The pretty market town of Alford nearby has a good selection of shops and eateries. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 5 miles.
