I asked for a bed lever and it was provided free of charge.The rest of the cottage was easy to move around in with my manual wheelchair....

My wife, mother in law and I stayed in Clunie cottage for four relaxing days during beautiful late August weather in 2015. The cottage, all on one floor, was easy for the mother in law(aged 90) to get around on her zimmer. The bathroom, bedroom and kitchen had been installed with disabled/elderly people in mind but were at the same...

I can highly reccommend Crathie Opportunity Holidays. Each of the 4 cottages varies slighty and there is equipment available for hire. It is a fantastic location for a quiet holiday if you have a disabled member of your family. It is a rural location but there are towns not too far away and an hour drive takes you to Aberdeen.

My sister and I stayed here with our elderly mother, who had some mobility issues. It was just wonderful for her; she could enjoy a holiday which catered for her needs. Wonderful setting. Amazing facilities. Suitable for all her needs. It was truly memorable, especially as it was the last time that I could take her to see her childhood...

Perfect facilities, perfect location, helpful friendly staff, wake up to the sound of nothing else but nature, river dee flowing by, the queen's ponies grazing nearby, secluded and secure. In a nutshell this place is just heaven on Earth. You won't be disappointed! Gary, Ann Marie and Oscar the Dog(who loved it too)
