    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    Aberdeen Cottage enjoys an enviable location, not just for its views in all directions, but also for its accessibility into the Cairngorm mountains and to the coast with the delightful and picturesque harbour villages like Stonehaven.

    Loch Ness, of course, is also not far away and a trip there allows you the opportunity of travelling on the fantastic 'road to Tomintoul' which must be one of the most scenic roads in the whole of Scotland ?

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Of traditional design, the charming cottage has just (March 2014) been extended and now provides 3 reception rooms including a new and well appointed and fully equipped kitchen/living room and a family bathroom/wc on the ground floor with an electric shower over the bath.. The wood-burning stove is a great focal point to the sitting-room and is perfect to relax in front of after a day's activities.

    Upstairs are two comfortable bedrooms, one double and one twin and another new bathroom/wc, with separate shower, on the first floor. The 2014 extension and the complete renovation works of the original cottage carried out in 2011 now afford a comfortable holiday home in this most idyllic location overlooking the River Dee and enjoying fabulous views to all sides.
