Love it! Love it! Love it! We had a fantastic time at the Stables. It was the perfect location for our first tour of Scotland. We were within a short drive of all the castles we went to see along the castle trail. The cottage was beautiful - exactly as the online pictures show - and had everything we needed... More

We have just spent a week at The Bothy, the smallest of the 3 cottages available at Cairnton Farm and we had a lovely break with our dog. The cottage is on a working Aberdeen Angus beef farm and boy do that family work hard!! It has wonderful views across Royal Deeside to the south, east and west. It's very... More

I had the privilege of staying in The Byre at Cairnton farm Cottage. It was a wonderfully pleasurable experience from beginning to end, and even before I got there. The atmosphere is relaxing, the view breathtaking, and the hosts, Ken and Margie, the epitome of northern Scottish hospitality. I was there for 5 weeks for a get-away-from the -city, and... More

Spent a lovely relaxing week at the Byre with my husband and friends. The cottage is perfect, clean and comfortable, with the comfiest beds we have ever slept in on a cottage holiday. Well equipped and we made good use of the woodstove, even switching the heating off so we could enjoy the fire in the evenings. Our 3 dogs... More

The four of us stayed at The Bothy, one of 3 cottages on the Cairnton Aberdeen Angus farm. Words cannot suitably describe how lovely it is, with the beautiful views from 3 sides of the cottage that are pure glass. Underfloor heating meant we didn't need to utilise the 2 wood burning stoves but even in March we had the... More

Just back from our second visit to the bothy and I doubt it will be our last. Lovely location, very rural but within close driving distance to nearby villages for corner shops (kincardine o'neil), restaurants and co-op (Aboyne) or a large tesco in Banchory. There are numerous options for local walks, or straying further afield it is a good base... More

We stayed in The Byre, cottage was amazing with everything we needed & pet friendly - 1 springer, 1 pug & 1 cat. Location is great for anyone wanting a mixture of relaxation & walking. Only a short drive into The Cairngorms. Will definitely visit again.

Our family discovered Deeside activity park in April on our last trip up. We noticed the cottages advertised at the park shop. The owner Margaret kindly showed us around them and we decided to book. We stayed at the Bothy with our 3 girls (all under 9) and 2 dogs. Ken the owner/farmer has been outstanding all round but especially... More
