About the neighbourhood
Ballater has been in the news over the last few years due to Storm Frank. A huge devastating flood in December 2015. St.Kilda (this cottage) was very lucky and suffered no damage. The town of Ballater has come back with a vengeance! More improved shops, cafes and restaurants have appeared. The people are lovely and welcoming. Golf club, bowling green and tennis courts are 5 minutes away. Walks without driving include Craigendarroch Hill and a lovely walk around the River Dee and golf course (about 40 minutes). A short drive to Cambus o Mey for some trail walks, a full circular walk lasts around 50 minutes. There are three different walks. A little further on (past the fishing lake) is Loch Kinord, a nature reserve with several trail walks.
Getting around
Around 40 miles from Aberdeen. Bus services from Aberdeen and Perth. Bus stop at Co-op in centre of town is only a few steps from cottage. Sometimes in the winter the snow gates are closed both Glenshee and Cairn o Mount so you have to go the snail route through Stonehaven. An extra 20 minutes to your journey, can’t be helped I’m afraid.
