Large self-catering Holiday Cottage with views of the River Dee sleeps six Banchory Aberdeenshire Scotland

Large, self-catering Holiday Cottage, with views of the River Dee, sleeps six, Banchory, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. In an area renowned for superb fishing and golf, this wonderful property, Lairds Cast, one of a pair, could not be in a better location! Just 50 yards from the rushing waters of the lovely River Dee and very close to Banchory Golf Course, this spacious and very comfortable accommodation makes full use of its situation, with patio doors from the living room offering an uninterrupted view of the river itself - where fishing may be arranged with the owner (subject to availability). With all modern facilities, it ensures a very relaxing stay in total comfort. Banchory is a superb base for a varied holiday with Crathes Castle and garden, and Castle Fraser both well worth a visit.. Also boasting two golf courses in the town, there is a wider choice in the surrounding area with excellent hillwalking and skiing available in the Cairngorms just a short distance away. A short drive leads to Ballater, where Queen Victoria first arrived in Desside in 1848. Although the line has long since closed, visitors can still visit the elegant train station in the heart of the town centre. Ballater is also an excellent base for local walks and outdoor activivites. A popular walk leads to Lochnagar, the much painted and written about mountain by the current Prince of Wales. Balmoral is easily accessible for the day and the local distillery at Lochnagar is well worth a visit, with tours and tasting of the local malt available. For an alternative day out, Aberdeen - Scotland’s third largest city, is well worth a visit. Many of the parks have been transformed into ‘flower gardens’ and are some of the most beautiful in Britain. There is also an excellent choice of restaurants and pubs and the livley city harbour comes alive in the evening with a number of theatres. Spacious open plan living/dining-room with open fire, patio doors and views over River Dee. Modern kitchen. Double bedroom. Two twin-bedded rooms, both with views over river. Bathroom with over-bath shower. Shower room. Separate W.C.
