This spacious property is in an ideal location for exploring this stunning area of Scotland.

A spacious and very well-equipped traditional stone house, sitting in a woodland area on Mar Estate at Inverey. Offering magnificent views across the Upper Dee Valley to Ben Macdui, the heart of the Cairngorm National Park, here you will find mountain activities which have made this part of the Highlands a famous tourist area. It is an ideal area for those who simply wish to wander through idyllic scenery and perhaps see a glimpse of an osprey, golden eagle or capercailzie.
Braemar village nestling amongst heather covered hills, is the setting for the annual Highland Gathering, also Braemar Castle with its barrel-vaulted ceilings, underground prison and central tower with spiral staircase, has much historical interest. The area abounds with castles, including Balmoral, the Scottish baronial mansion which has been a royal residence since 1852. The Royal Family traditionally spend their summer holidays here, and the grounds are ideal for walking and pony trekking. Dunnottar Castle is one of Scotland’s finest ruined castles, a huge 9th-century fortress set on a three-sided sheer cliff jutting into the sea, with dramatic views out to the crashing sea.
Well worth a visit is the Cairngorm Whisky Centre in Tomintoul (1 hour), with its tasting room offering more than 1,000 brands of whisky.
There is extensive hill walking and challenging mountain climbing opportunities from the door and in the winter months if sufficient snow, good skiing at Glenshee (20 mins). For those who do not wish to climb the mountains but still want to see the awe inspiring views, take the chairlift at Glenshee to the observation point a short distance from the top of the Cairnwell mountain. Braemar golf course (18 holes) is a gem. Fishing on the River Dee (for information see caretaker). Roe and red deer are present and stalking can be arranged (in advance) through the Estate. Shop and pub 4 miles.

Living room with wood-burning stove. Spacious kitchen/dining room. Utility. Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with toilet. Separate toilet. First floor: Three twin bedrooms, one with en-suite toilet, one with en-suite shower room and toilet. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet.

    We have stayed at the Knock on five occasions primarily for the location. We have been coming to the area for over twenty years. We saw that the property was available for the New Year, but were shocked at the dramatic increase in price as we stayed there at the same time two years ago. At that price the value goes down on the rating scale to a 4 and i think the lighting in the kitchen is terrible at night and is depressing. More corner lights that could be plugged in would be a good addition and we had to take these from other rooms to do this.The addition of the new wood burning stove was better than the previous one, but the removal of the mantle piece above makes the room look odd. Other than that we had a fantastic holiday

    A lovely spot with fantastic scenery. House very well equipped (kitchen has everything you'd need with good fridge and freezer space). Although others have complained about the storage heaters, we were fine given the extra heaters provided. Bedrooms are of a good size. Fantastic walking right from the front door; we also had a day's skiing at Glenshee which was only a 20 minute drive which was lovely. Ian, the caretaker was extremely helpful.

    Really lovely house, at the edge of a beautiful pine forest, great location for gorgeous views and perfect spot for adventures into the wilderness. The only downside was that there wasn't much hot water available and the house seemed fairly cold, but the weather was wild. Thank you The Knock for providing the space for my friends and I to have a lovely time together!!!
