Bed and Breakfast Description


Originally built in 1760, we have recently restored the ruin to a very high standard with plenty of private parking and wildlife walks from the doorstep.

Less than 45 miles from Aberdeen, we offer a refuge of comfort and tranquillity from where you can explore some of the historic sites and stunning scenery that is this unique corner of Scotland. Our home features many antiques and country furnishings whilst enjoying all the modern comforts that a newly restored house can offer.

On arrival, you may take tea and some of Carole's home made cakes or shortbread in the drawing room. We have a huge range of books on Scotland and the local area, with lots of marked ordnance survey maps. Breakfasts are leisurely and taken in the drawing room where you can enjoy all manner of wonderful things such as Scottish bacon, kippers, free range eggs, fresh fruits, home made bread and our own spring water from Cummerton Hill.


Strathdon Attractions

The property has a wonderful location and is close to two stunning salmon rivers. The Dee is famous for its Royal connections and Balmoral, the Don is less well known but has a wild and beautiful landscape with a mysterious and historic past.

Even in the midst of Summer, you will feel that you have entered the forgotten Scotland. Beginning at Braemar, we have an abundance of the highest mountains to be found anywhere in Scotland - and it seems sad that so many people miss out as they rush around the country.

Throughout the Summer, Highland Games are held all over this area, but none are more famous than the Braemar Games so loved by the Queen during her long Summer holiday at Balmoral and the Lonach Games here in Bellabeg that are held in a most wonderful natural arena. Everyone is welcome to watch the feats of strength and the traditional highland dancing and bagpipe music.

This area of the Cairngorm National Park is rich with ancient rights of way and forgotten glens where folk lived out their lives and now all that is left to show that they ever existed, are the ruins of their cottages and clachan peeping through the heather. So, when next you come across some of these stones.... remember the land of the lost.

Discover the Lost Gallery on our doorstep, the Lawson Johnson galleries and the Knock Gallery overlooking Balmoral Castle - the artists among you will be in heaven.

If mediaeval castles catch your imagination, then the extensive atmospheric ruins of Kildrummy and Glenbuchat are just up the road. You can take a guided tour around the fairytale splendour of the pink Craigievar Castle that inspired Walt Disney or the old Redcoat garrison of Corgarff Castle. All are very close by in Donside. These and many more can be found on the well signed Castle Trail.
