At each end of the sitting/dining room is a wood-burning stove so it is very cosy and welcoming with an open plan layout that makes it the perfect place to gather in the evenings. Relax and watch a film on the Smart TV or enjoy meals together followed by discussions on what activities to try next. Alongside the dining area is additional seating for sitting reading a book or enjoying a drink by the crackling fire.

From the sitting room an archway leads straight through to the kitchen, so it is handy when it comes to serving up at meal times. The stylish kitchen has everything needed easily to hand with a useful utility room off it and a door that leads out to the pretty garden.

The three bedrooms are all upstairs with two double rooms that each have king-size beds and their own en suite facilities and a bright twin bedroom that makes use of a modern bathroom with a bath and separate shower. All of the bedrooms are very well put together and the master bedroom is particularly luxurious with its dressing area and sofa to stretch out on.

Off road parking is right by the door and the sweet garden behind the house, that is shared with the sister property Glen Mar Cottage next door, has its own seating area from which to dine al fresco or simply enjoy the view.

Map & Local

For a small village Braemar has a very good range of amenities that are in walking distance of the cottage, in fact, some of the shops are right across the road.

Stop off at The Fife Arms for a delicious bar meal or a drink, as there are an excellent range of whiskies to sample. Fans of interior design will certainly appreciate the décor that is very impressive with amazing artwork and antiques on display throughout.

One of the highlights of the local calendar is the Braemar Gathering that is held each September, drawing visitors and competitors from far and wide for an exciting programme of highland games against a backdrop of traditional music and dancing.

The Braemar Highland Games Centre celebrates the long, rich history of the gathering and its connections to the Royal family who still attend the event every year. The centre is set in the Duke of Rothesay Highland Games Pavilion where, as well as the exhibition, there is a café, gallery and shop to peruse.

Being set within the Cairngorms National Park provides ample opportunities for walking, climbing, cycling or visiting one of the nearby nature reserves such as the one on the Mar Lodge Estate where red deer, pine martens, otters and even golden eagles can be spotted. The Glenshee Ski Resort (9 miles) is also only 15 minutes’ drive away for skiing and snowboarding in the winter months.
