View of Ballater Village about 100 yds from our cottage.
Wonderful holiday cottage of character, 100 years old. Conveniently situated in Ballater village which is nestled amongst pine forests in the Cairngorm Mountains. The picturesque River Dee runs a hundred yards or so from the cottage.
This is a superb location for walking, fishing, cycling, skiing and golf. There is a superb leisure club about 1 mile away with swimming pool. Membership can be purchased on a weekly basis.
