We spent four nights at Candycraig with our son, daughter and small children for our neices wedding at Glentanar Ballroom. This is possibly the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in many. It is beautifully appointed, and very spacious, warm in November and just ideal for what we wanted. Thoroughly recommended. As an aside,... More

A lovely home-from-home experience is guaranteed here at Butler's Lodge. That said, any other cottage we've stayed in on the Glen Tanar Estate too! What ever the weather there are numerous paths to walk along in the forest, stunning rural drives, and sufficiently far enough away from the busyness of city/town or village life to feel seclusion. This place draws... More

Lovely cottage tucked away, perfect for me as a single person, but would be great for two as well. Had everything I needed, and I could walk straight from the door (albeit there is lots to do around here). Nice to come back to a log burning stove and modern kitchen to cook in. I also did a land rover... More

Stayed at Candycraig for our friends' wedding at the chapel in the grounds; a wonderful place with a great garden for the dogs and our 2.5 year old daughter to run around in. The cottage was spacious for 5 of us and 2 dogs, it was really well appointed, just like a home from home. The log fire with huge... More

Just had a lovely week in Garden Cottage at Glen Tanar Estate. This is a beautiful cottage, which was spotlessly clean and lovely and cosy when we arrived. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. There are some great walks in this fabulous, scenic part of Aberdeen. The staff on the estate are all very... More

We stayed at the butler's lodge. The cottage was very comfortable and cozy (especially with the wood burning fire on). The surrounding area is beautiful and ideal for long walks. The people at Glen Tanar estate were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back for another holiday. It was such a relaxing and peaceful place.

This is our second visit to Glen Tanar Estate. We stayed in the Woodend Cottage, and more recently Butlers Lodge Cottage. Both are lovely, spacious, very clean and well equipped. Glen Tanar is the idyllic spot for chilling out, revving up the barbecue, cracking a bottle of wine and relaxing with friends and/or family. We have two small children and... More

Stayed June 2013, lovely stone cottage, very well furnished and equipped (great broadband!). Some luxury touches like the "wet room" shower and under-floor heating in both bathrooms. Quiet, idyllic, location about 10-15 mins drive from either Aboyne or Ballater. Large lounge diner with wood burning stove. Like all scottish stone cottages this is cosy, thick walls, but smallish windows. However... More
