About the neighbourhood
Our beautiful and comfortable holiday cottage is located in the peaceful village of Finzean, great for getting away from it all. You can enjoy the many short walks from the front door or have relaxing soak in the hot tub while enjoying the views of ‘our’ curiously shaped mountain Clachnaben. If you’re in the mood for exploring, the lively market town of Banchory is 10 minutes away and the picturesque village of Aboyne is also 10 minutes from our cottage. Both offer an abundance of leisurely sightseeing, shopping, fishing, golf, restaurants, pubs. If you’re feeling energetic there’s plenty of options within easy reach, some of the finest sporting estates in the world are on your doorstep.
