Craiglarach cottage is a charming, well-appointed, well maintained Victorian detached cottage on the outskirts of Aboyne village. Secluded but not remote, and with stunning views of fields, woods and hills from the sitting room window, to watch and enjoy the wild life of deers, birds and red squirrels that visit the garden. The River Dee is a short walk away, and the shops and pubs/cafes in Aboyne are under a mile away....Craiglarach cottage is a charming, well-appointed, well maintained Victorian detached cottage on the outskirts of Aboyne village.
