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.

Returned yesterday from our holiday stay at Glen Tanar and the West Millfield cottage. It is truly stunning. I have family who live in Aboyne so have been coming up for over 40 years and never knew these cottages were holiday lets! We most certainly will be back.

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

For several years we have stayed twice yearly in three different cottages and latterly in Woodend. Each cottage has been beautifully clean, very well equipped and tastefully furnished. The Estate itself has something for all ages and you are made to feel very welcome. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
