Detached self-catering Holiday Cottage by the River Dee Braemar Aberdeenshire Scotland

Detached, self-catering Holiday Cottage, by the River Dee, Braemar, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Overlooking the gentle meandering bends of the River Dee where wild red deer roam, this former taxidermist’s workshop and cottage has been completely rebuilt under the ‘Mar Estate Golden Jubilee Project’. After lapsing into dereliction, this magnificently appointed property has been restored to its original 1884 timber construction, taking into account every last detail. Further enhanced by the addition of modern day facilities, Stuffers Cottage stands as a real gem of a holiday home, amidst spectacular scenery. The village is home to the annual Highland Games, the Braemar Gathering. Games were first held here in the 11th century, when contests were set for the local clans in order to pick the bravest and strongest for Malcolm Canmore’s army. Perth is little over an hour’s drive away, as is the beautiful granite city of Aberdeen. Living room with superb views. Well-equipped modern fitted kitchen/dining-room. Double bedroom. Shower room/W.C.
