We have holidayed in wonderful Ballater for over 20 years and this has been by far the most comfortable and nicest house we have rented. The owners have put an enormous amount of thought into the detail and we greatly appreciated it. The house is right in the centre – about three doors away from the bakers, closer still to the Chinese takeaway and across the road from an Indian restaurant. This is a quiet place and we were never bothered by any noise despite the central location. Very well maintained back garden and seating area although we were unfortunate with the weather and did not have an opportunity to enjoy sitting out. By contrast we enjoyed the log fire on a couple of cool evenings. The downstairs spacious master bedroom ensuite was exactly what my ageing parents required for their mobility restrictions. Parking right outside the front door.
We highly recommend this property as excellent value for money in comparison to our previous rentals and would definitely return.
In our time we have stayed in a lot of similar cottages and this one rates very highly. It is very well kitted out (and even has a waste disposal). Lovely Scotland feel and cosy with a log burner. I have never seen such a well organised outhouse. Lots of space. Great garden. The location is fab. We have family in village so would love to come back .

Excellent property, owners provided everything in terms of comfort and quality, both inside and outside. The quality of the furniture and fittings was excellent and my father was delighted to receive a welcome gift for his special birthday. The location, right in the town is also great and was very convenient for exploring the local area
Absolutely loved my stay at this property. The log fire is amazing!! Everything you might need is on the doorstep as well as the stunning scenery. Used the self catering facilities each night which were really up to date and everything I needed was in the kitchen. The house was immaculate and the bed was so comfortable! Had a lovely day sat in the sunshine on the patio too. I will definitely be back to stay and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves gorgeous scenery and a place to relax after a day of walking.
Lovely stone cottage in the heart of Ballater. Decorated to a very high standard and with all the home comfort you could need. The kids loved the garden and we loved the fact that all the shops and restaurants were within easy walking distance.
