A splendid large family home set in glorious isolation in the Scottish countryside, large enough for two families to share.

Located on a tree-lined country road, with the bustling River Deveron flowing past and surrounded by the rugged rolling hills of beautiful Aberdeenshire, this property is the perfect spot for a Scottish country break. Enjoy the great outdoors and an abundance of exciting pursuits close by, and be sure to bring along the family dogs to enjoy local walking and hiking routes. Sleeping eight guests, this spacious ground floor property is ideally suited to an extended family or group of friends of all ages.

A traditional country style has been maintained in each and every room of this charming property, and original features throughout add to the overall character. Admire the original fireplaces and enjoy the surrounding rugged landscape through large windows. The house has been thoughtfully decorated with a mixture of antique and contemporary furniture and quality soft furnishings, creating a truly homely place to stay.

The entire house is set out on the ground floor, with only three steps leading down to the open-plan sitting and dining room and one step down to one of the bedrooms. This spacious lounge and dining area is the heart of the house, where comfortable sofas crowd around a warming wood burner and make a cosy space to enjoy an evening tipple. Enjoy family meals together at the dining table whilst observing the wonderful, far-reaching views. Dinner can be prepared in the well-equipped kitchen which offers an authentic farmhouse Aga on which to cook. If you don’t fancy setting up the formal dining table, then enjoy a more casual breakfast or lunch in the relaxing TV room. This is a great spot for settling down and watching a film as a group, or enjoying a competitive board game. All four bedrooms are spacious and well furnished, offering plenty of space to unpack clothes or get ready in the morning. A small selection of books can be found on the bedside table in one of the double bedrooms.

Generous both indoors and out, the property also boasts a spacious surrounding garden which extends to approximately half an acre. This fantastic space is fully enclosed by stock proof fencing and offers a large area of lawn and an area of wild woodland. It's a secure spot to let children play or allow pets to let off some steam. Enjoy early evening drinks or fresh morning coffee on the garden furniture. Older kids and teenagers will adore retreating to the external chalet where they’ll find a great hangout area equipped with table tennis as well as a mezzanine level with cushions and a TV.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

You'll also find the surrounding area abundant in beautiful walking routes, ideal for long walks with the dogs, with plenty of local hills offering hiking and mountain biking routes too. Those who prefer golf to more strenuous outdoor activities can head to one of the three courses within a 16-mile radius, whereas those looking for thrilling outdoor fun can enjoy archery, go-karting and even zorbing at the local Lochter Activity Centre (25 miles).

For trips to the beach, head 16 miles towards the coast and visit the sandy shores of Banff beach which is a popular beach for dog walking, as well as Cullen Beach (18 miles). These stunning waterside spots are great for both surfing and sailing. You may also want to travel up to Spey Bay (22 miles) to check out an excellent area for dolphin spotting.

Travel around 25 miles away from the property to find yourself in the heart of the Malt Whisky Trail, boasting nine popular whisky distilleries and offering plenty of tours and tasting opportunities. Be sure to pick up a bottle or two to take home, as there's truly no finer Scottish export than a great bottle of whisky.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
