    We really enjoyed staying at Skene House Cottage. Nick and Fiona are wonderful hosts. Thank you for making us feel very welcome and share your home with us. The Cottage is very well equipped. It is such a tranquil and special place. Since you will be living in a Castle be aware that it might get a bit chilly in the evenings (especially in this time of year), nevertheless we had a great stay.

    This is a very special cottage within the old beautiful Skene castle. It is very calm and the hosts are very friendly. You have many options to either visit the highlands (Cairngorns Nationalpark) or the seaside. However, you need a car and have to drive.

    Had a lovely holiday in quiet country surroundings with nice walks and plenty to do in the local area. It was fantastic to stay in the group day of the castle and Nick was very knowledgeable about the history.

    We had a great autumn week at Skene House Cottage. Being part of a castle in quiet countryside just outside Aberdeen makes the location quite special. The cottage has character, is spacious and feels homely. The facilities are quite modern and adequate for a comfortable stay. The owners are friendly, helpful and sincere. Their son played with ours, and they have an huge friendly Irish Wolfhound.
