    Brow Cottage - UK5512 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.
    Brow Cottage can be booked together with Tornahatnach (ref UK5177), Braemorlich (ref UK10381) and Home Farm Cottage (ref UK10382) to accommodate up to 21 guests.

    Greig – 11 Nov 2018
    "Lovely cottage in a great location very relaxing week would visit again"
    Sharon – 21 Oct 2018
    "Brow cottage is a gem of a cottage, perfectly placed for exploring Aberdeenshire. The red squirrels and deer in the garden were a bonus, we loved our week here and we hope to return."
    Elaine – 20 Sep 2018
    "We stayed at Brow because my grandparents lived there when my grandfather was the head gamekeeper on Glenkindie Estate . To be honest , it was the memories that attracted us and we didn’t have great expectations of the visit .How wrong we were . The cottage has been wonderfully renovated and Glenkindie itself is as beautiful as ever . If it’s peace and quiet you’re after , this is the place to find it .The scenery is lovely and all of the locals we met were very friendly and helpful .Glenkindie House is spectacular and , although not open to the public , it can still be scene from the road and tracks .Balmoral and Braemar are an easy drive away and make an excellent day out ."
    Vicky – 15 Sep 2018
    "Fabulous cottage will definitely recommend it. In fact I already have"
    Ryan – 12 Sep 2018
    "The cottage was in the perfect location for what we were doing. We were on a driving holiday with a few friends. A large driveway for the 4 cars and lactated next to some incredible roads."
    Andrew – 26 Aug 2018
    "The Cottage is located in a superb area in Scotland. Most mornings we were greated by all kinds of wildlife in and around the cottages grounds.The cottage was clean and had ample facilities for our family of 8. The nearest supermarkets- ASDA and TESCO are located in Huntly, a good 30 minutes away. So plan ahead when arriving for groceries.We would all most definitely stay again."
    Helen – 5 Aug 2018
    "We had a great week and will recomend to our friends and family, great place to get away from it all but good for kids that like Wi-Fi.Helen"
    Michael – 4 Jul 2018
    "Lovely cottage well hidden away but with easy access to a large interesting area"
    Peter – 2 Jul 2018
    "We had what we went for, a lovely relaxing holiday."
    L – 6 Jun 2018
    "A lovely well equipped cottage in a reasonably quiet area. Both the house and the spacious grounds were well maintained. The outdoor seating areas let visitors have privacy and enjoy nature's wildlife . A high standard of furnishings and décor throughout with plenty of fuel supplied for the wood burner at no extra cost ,should it be required . Due to the size of the estate there were many available walks from the doorstep without having to consider the car. Biking also catered for. Complementary provisions in situ on arrival. The towns of Alford and Huntly are both within reasonably short distances of Brow Cottage. Overall, a very pleasant stay."
    “Rhoda" – 26 May 2018
    "We loved our break at Brow cottage. Great kitchen, comfy beds, easy log burner and fantastic outside space - helped by beautiful weather. Only downsides were the lack of hot water pressure in the showers and the fact that there is not a gas barbecue on site as stated on the website. That aside, we would definitely stay there again. Had a birthday barbecue with family from Methlick, Pitmedden and Huntly, which we all thoroughly enjoyed and our wee dog was mesmerised by the amount of rabbits! Thank you."
    Jazzy – 22 May 2018
    "It was absolutely amazing, very spacious, beautiful, clean and nothing was missing. We had a car, so there was no issues driving to neighbouring villages and get food."
    Steven – 19 May 2018
    "Excellent home away from home. Spacious, comfortable, good quality."
    Nicola – 3 Apr 2018
    "Beautifully presented cottage in a wonderful situation. So relaxing, comfortable and peaceful. Lots of wildlife to see and a lovely welcome pack on arrival including a newspaper, tea/coffee/milk , homemade shortbreadand biscuits for the dogs. I would definitely recommend this cottage."
    Sarah – 24 Mar 2018
    "Superb cottage, ideal base for a family holiday. It is beautifully decorated, well thought out, spacious and immaculately clean. Very comfortable beds - we all slept with the curtains open so we could wake to the stunning views! Quiet and peaceful, yet well placed for woodland walks, castle spotting, exploring and wee shops for supplies. Suitable for all ages and we can't wait to book again. A delight of a place, a gem."
