Enjoy exploring the Fasque Castle Estate with deer park, woodland and an abundance of wildlife around you. The perfect setting to enjoy a romantic escape or enjoy time with friends and family.

Nestled amongst the Aberdeenshire countryside in North East Scotland, this charming lodge is ideal for friends looking for the tranquillity and natural beauty of a rural break. Sleeping four people in two king-size bedrooms, this lodge stands proudly at the entrance to the grand Fasque House and Estate, home of the Gladstone Family. With plenty of walks from your doorstep, you can explore the deer park, woodland and beyond, but be sure to pack your binoculars so you don’t miss the wonderful wildlife that resides here, such as deer, otters, eagles and red squirrels. The estate is situated on the outskirts of the village of Fettercairn, home to some small shops, a pub and the Fettercairn Whisky Distillery, where you can take a tour and enjoy a wee dram.

On entering, discard coats and boots in the porch before heading into the hallway. From here, the cosy lounge is to the right with an open fire – the perfect spot to snuggle on the sofa of an evening. Heading into the kitchen/diner, you’ll find everything you need to cook up a hearty breakfast or evening meal, which can be enjoyed at the dining table. At the end of busy day, head into one of the king-size bedrooms for a good night’s sleep, both of which have feature fireplaces as a reminder of the property’s heritage. A family bathroom completes the accommodation with a shower over the bath.

The garden can be accessed from the kitchen and has dining furniture so that you can enjoy al fresco meals against the backdrop of the beautiful surroundings. You are also welcome to explore the estate’s 400 acres. If you’re looking for an extra special break, a hot tub can be arranged at an additional cost. There is ample parking for up to three cars.

Situated in a peaceful location, this lodge is well-placed to explore the spectacular coastline to the east and stunning Cairngorms National Park to the west. Dramatic and rugged, the coastline has cliffs, golden sand, hidden coves and far-reaching sea views. Head 16 miles to the historic village of Inverbervie with its shops and eateries. Further south, there is the picturesque harbour village of Gourdon (17 miles), where you can enjoy the views while tucking into fish and chips. Heading north, there’s Catterline and Kineff (20.5 miles) that again offer wonderful coastal walks and local pubs.

If you’d prefer to explore the Scottish countryside, head inland to the breathtaking scenery of the Cairngorms. 21 miles away is Loch Lee, which forms part of a delightful (yet challenging) walking circuit that also takes in Glen Esk’s Falls of Unich and Fall of Damff. This is one of many walking routes that allows you to soak up the varied landscape of the National Park.

Laurencekirk (6.5 miles) is your nearest town with a wider range of shops and eateries than Fettercairn. It’s home to mansion house and farm, Balmakewan, which has a tearoom, farm shop and a beer festival. It is a good starting point for walks.

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.
