We had a marvellous welcome at Osborne House after driving over the Cairngorms in driving sleet - tea, home baked scones and cakes in front of a roaring log fire. We had the bedroom that looks out over the porch and it was as roomy and comfortable as can be with a separate shower room and another separate toilet and washroom.
It is an easy walk into Ballater from Osborne House and there are several interesting places to eat there. The Royal Railway Station is also well worth a visit. Heather and Neil are locals so have a wealth of information about the area to impart.
