    About this property

    This 19th century cottage is in a great location from which to explore the surrounding scenery, with lochs, forests and mountains all nearby.
    Step inside Drumniall Cottage and you will instantly find a haven of peace and tranquillity, especially as there is no TV. Crammed with lots of interesting hidden gems and subtle signs pointing to the vernacular heritage of the cottage, it is an absolute treasure trove of interesting artefacts and artworks. Particularly suited for couples, this detached cottage, next to the owner’s home and on a working farm, has been renovated to retain the early 19th century character of the cottage, yet incorporates everyday comforts. The very restful rooms are complemented by traditional furnishings, a very efficient wood burner in the living room and a plethora of books and other literature to immerse yourself in. Its south-facing aspect makes the most of stunning views over Royal Deeside, and its central location makes it an ideal base for enjoying the many activities and experiences available in the area.
    Rich in historical sites, there are many to visit within close proximity, including Craigievar Castle, the ‘jewel’ of the famed Castles of Aberdeenshire, which is just minutes away. Nature lovers will not be disappointed, with many species of bird, including golden eagles, having been spotted near to the cottage, and deer herds in neighbouring Glentanar and Glenshee.
    Royal Deeside is famed for the quality of its landscape and scenery, with farmland, forests, lochs, rivers, upland moors and high mountains. Walks of different type and length can be enjoyed from the cottage itself, whilst the famous Cairngorm Mountains are just a short car journey away. A striking view of Lochnagar, 3,800ft, is to be had from outside the cottage itself.
    Balmoral, the Royal Family’s Highland home is just a few miles from Drumniall Cottage and many walks can be enjoyed on the estate itself throughout the year. The Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve is a short drive from the cottage, whilst pony trekking, gliding, quad-riding, skiing (in season), fishing, shooting and golf are readily available nearby. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 2¾ miles.
    All on the ground floor.
    Living/dining room: With wood burner, DVD player with monitor, iPod dock, wooden floor and vaulted ceiling.
    Kitchen: With electric oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and tiled floor.

    "A very well situated cottage for us as it's a bit in the middle of nowhere but near a main road. Very well equipped and a lovely welcome pack. Owner was very accommodating."

    "We had a great break at the cottage. It is comfortable, well equipped and felt very comfortable. Paddy was very helpful and welcoming and we would not hesitate to return. Thanks."

    "we had a wonderful holiday in this cosy and homely cottage. Paddy made us feel more than welcome and was happy to give us any information on the area. We very much liked his company which certainly attributed to an unforgettable holiday! The location on the hillslope is unique and so are the views into the valley and the mountains. We hope to return someday."

    "Very cosy and welcoming cottage, not far from Ballater and Aboyne, and many other places on Royal Deesside. Set in lovely countryside, very peaceful. The cottage is beautifully furnished, and very much feels like a home from home. The owner welcomed us and happily advised on the facilities and things to do in the area. A very comprehensive welcome pack was provided. We will return for sure, and would happily recommend this cottage to others. It was just perfect for our short break of 3 days, but we would happily have stayed for a week"

    "We had a wonderful time during our stay at Drumniall. The cottage is well laid-out and very comfortable, serving as the perfect base for whatever type of holiday you are looking for - whether that is lazing inside in front of the log fire, or trekking around the surrounding national park. The only con we could think of is that the 2nd bed is slightly hard and may not have been comfortable to sleep on, but we cannot comment having used the other bed. I can't think of anything else I would change for the cottage. Paddy was an excellent host and our trip wouldn't have been the same without his excellent service."

    "Fabulous cottage in a beautiful rural area. It has pretty much everything you need including a log burner and a store full of logs. We were snug and warm even with the wind and snow we had (in February). There are lots of things to do in the area, and can also recommend the food at the Commercial Hotel in Tarland which is only a few miles away."

    "When my wife I first thought of a cottage break we suggested a few ‘must haves’. Drumniall had that and more. In fact it is a dream place to stay. It was hard to leave the cottage. Our host was a delight. So kind and thoughtful. Teaching us about the area and helping us whenever help was needed. We are booking again this very week! The view and the surrounding areas is beautiful to drive or walk. You have lovely villages with all the amenities you need along with some great characters. Yes yes yes. Ok, we liked it. :)"
