We have stayed in Rowan Cottage 3 times now and we loved it each time. It is a cosy little cottage set off the road up a well maintained track. It is possible to walk across the entire estate from the cottage and the wood burning stove is wonderful after a long day in the hills. The cottage has a... 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.

We’re just back from another brilliant week on the Glen Tanar Estate, this time in Butler’s Lodge. An exceptional week of long walks, horse riding, fine food and R&R with the family. What better setting to see deer and other wildlife in the natural and unspoilt ancient Scots pine forests. A tranquil setting with many inscribed stones to identify and... More

Just returned from another fantastic week at Rowan Cottage on the Glen Tanar Estate. This has to be our favourite cottage on the estate. Cozy and comfortable. Peace and quiet, good place to come and "chill" Lots to see and do in the surrounding area. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Would highly recommend. Book early though, as it's a very popular holiday...

We stayed in Rowan Cottage which has a very rutted dirt track going to it. There is also no outlook from this cottage - just scrub woods and a derelect farm next door. However the biggest concern was that the cottage was not clean. Shelves, corners of windows were filthy and I had to spend some time giving the bathroom... More

We have just come back from 3 nights in the West Millfield Cottage on the Glen Tanar Estate and i can't recommend it enough. For amazing scenery, comfortable surroundings, peace and quiet, it is the place to come. We can strongly say that if the cottage was for sale we would buy it in a flash as we didn't want... More

We have just returned from a fantastic family wedding at Glen Tanar Estate. We stayed Friday to Monday in the Garden Cottage which is simply stunning. We would strongly recommend staying here to anyone wishing to visit Royal Deeside.

We stayed here for a week to attend a nephew's wedding in Glen Tanar Ballroom and St Lasmo's Chapel. The wedding arrangements were very good (except this was our only wet day!) Rowan Cottage is small and comfortable with all mod cons - satellite wi-fi, TV and DVD player. Bed linen, towels, heating, etc., are all provided along with tea,... More

Thank you for your great review. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Rowan got out to explore other parts of Deeside. With regards to the track up to Rowan, this is an ongoing battle with heavy rain washing the track out and causing pot holes. We are looking into the best options to stop the continuous return...

The Garden Cottage was absolutely great, everything about it was first class and it was lovely to sit in an evening in front of the log burner. The area was outstanding we walked and visited the local towns but it was always a pleasure to return to the cottage. Liz's larder was also excellent the good was delivered direct to... More
