    The amenities at Bearberry Cottage are first class. The cottage is clean and tidy and finished to an excellent standard. We had Wi-Fi at the cottage which never let us down, there is a log fire which we used most days due to very bad weather, however this did not spoil our enjoyment of the cottage. The bed's are so comfy and with blackout curtains fitted and such a quiet area, we slept in on most day's. Ballater is a beautiful village and only a 10 minute walk from the cottage, as are wonderful walks in practically every direction. The garden is perfect for watching the birds and red squirrel visiting - bring nut's. Would not hesitate in recommending to everyone, in fact we have already booked another stay!

    A lovely cottage, very quiet area of ballater but short walk to shops etc. Saw red squrriel's in the garden. Walks straight from the door, in fact you could easily not use your car all week. Wifi must have just been installed so this was a added bonus .

    Lovely cottage, thoughtful owners in excellent location in Ballater. Only drawback was that we didn't really like Ballater possibly due to fact that 2 of the things we had planned to do when booking were not available. Old rail station had burnt down and bridge shut for refurbishment meant couldn't do 7 bridges walk.

    Response from: administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your kind comments about Bearberry Cottage. The Polhollick Bridge refurbishment has now been completed and the seven bridges walk has reopened. There are plans to rebuild the Old Royal Station. We love Ballater and we are very pleased that many of our guests' comments, both on-line and in our visitors' book, are so positive about the beautiful village and the glorious surrounding area of Royal Deeside, which offers many attractions and numerous wonderful walks.

    By far the best self catering property we have rented in Scotland (and we've rented quite a few properties!). Very comfortable, beautifully furnished and very well equipped An easy stroll into Ballater and good walks straight from the door. We won't consider renting anywhere else in Ballater.
