The cottage has recently been totally refurbished to a very high standard throughout. It has been beautifully done with a fully equipped modern kitchen/diner, lovely living room, modern bathroom, 2 good sized bedrooms one with ensuite. There is a large patio area which is a secluded sun trap. A stroll takes you into Ballater for shops and restaurants. Other attractions such as Balmoral are a short drive away. We had a great holiday and the standards in this cottage made our stay the best. The owners were wonderful and could not do enough to make us welcome. We would highly recommend this cottage and we look forward to returning.
