Location was great for us with 2 dogs, even tho it did rain most of the time. Just need to trim back the bushes to get a better view when sitting in the hot tub other wise everything was good. Thanks again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Bothy. The cottage has everything you could possibly need. The location is idyllic and the hot tub is a must. Would highly recommend. A perfectly splendid stay!

Enjoyed a very relaxing 4 nights with my wife. The Bothy (more so than its sister cottages) offers magnificent views over Deeside. Clean, comfortable and generally well provisioned (small point: could do with small chopping knives - a large carving knife isn't ideal for chopping small veg!). The hot tub was a great feature - but agree with the previous reviewer that you can't see the panorama from it. Despite its quiet location, we found it a good base for exploring the heart of Aberdeenshire. Aboyne and Craigievar Castle are 10 mins away. Ballater, Banchory, Bennachie and several other castles (Crathes, Fraser, Drum) are around 30 mins or less away.

Went with hubbie, my dog Angus, and my mum and dad and their dog Megan. I absolutely loved it. I have anxiety and this was the perfect place for me. I never left our holiday home from Monday to Friday, although there is plenty to do at the activity centre nearby and short trip to shop if we needed anything (the only thing we ran out of was drink!). Would have given it 5 stars but beautiful view was spoilt a bit with the hedges being quite high. Other than that, everything else was perfect. Hot tub fantastic, great bbq, bed so big and comfy. The farm dogs were very friendly, but unfortunately my dog is a bit overprotective and antisocial! You have to try their steaks. We cooked ours on the bbq. They were the best steaks I’ve ever tasted.
