Find cottages in Aberdeenshire

Aberdeenshire in Scotland’s north east offers fantastic access to some of the best that the country has to offer; and as well as having plenty of holiday cottages in the region for you to choose from, you’ll also discover breath taking landscapes, rich history and lots of activities for all the family. With such an abundance of things to see and do, you won’t have to travel far from your cottage to find some fantastic ways to enjoy your holiday.

It’s an area that is tailor-made for relaxing outdoor holidaymaking, offering a wealth of activities and attractions to help make the perfect Scottish holiday break. For example you can enjoy some of the most stunning walks in the highland fells, explore the region’s rich history through its many archaeological sites and castles, or head for the coast to relax and enjoy the fresh air, with the most beautiful coastal views.

The region’s history is perfectly encapsulated in the incredible Dunnottar Castle. This stunning 14th century fortress offers breathtaking views and thanks to its cliff-top location allows you to bask in some of the region’s most beautiful scenery.

Staying in a holiday cottage is also the perfect way to explore the region’s whisky heritage. The Speyside Cooperage in Craigellachie grants a uniquely fascinating insight into the production of oak casts. The only one of its kind in the UK, it forms part of the celebrated Malt Whisky Trail.

The outdoor pool in Stonehaven is equally unique. The last of its kind in Scotland, it offers clean seawater heated to 29 degrees C and makes for a uniquely relaxing way to enjoy your break in Aberdeenshire.

Skiing in the Cairngorms is of course one of the highlights of the winter months but thanks to a number of dry slopes it’s also possible to pursue your passion in the summer season if you like!

For those after the simple pleasures in nature the region has a multitude of rivers and waterways, making it a haven for anglers and wildlife lovers keen to relax and enjoy the unrivalled tranquility offered by their surroundings.

Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Aberdeenshire to find your perfect retreat.

    Ref: 30759


    At the heart of the Cairngorms National Park lies Mar Lodge Estate, a restored Victorian sporting lodge set in 29,380 hectares of wilderness, heather and ancient pine. Visited by nobility since the medieval period, Mar Lodge Estate is now recognised as one of Scotland’s most important conservation sites. From significant archaeological finds, to rare wildlife, and four of Britain’s highest mountains, the estate is a jewel in the crown of one of the country’s most iconic landscapes. Secluded in the pine woods of Mar Lodge estate, Creag Bhalg (ref 30187) and Claybokie (ref 30188) are two delightful properties connected via an illuminated woodland path and make fantastic bases to enjoy this magnificent Highland paradise; Claybokie (ref 30188) is a miniature lodge furnished in classic antique style offering the quintessential country retreat. Creag Bhalg (ref 30187) is named after the nearby hill that rises between Linn of Dee and Linn of Quoich. Set among Mar Lodge’s pine woodland, this exclusive Highland hideaway has been furnished in true country sporting style, with wood panelling and open fires. With uninterrupted views across the River Dee and Glen Eye, the privacy of both Claybokie and Creag Bhalg with their old-world glamour and contemporary facilities make them an unparalleled base for a clan gathering. Bynack (ref 30458) is the largest of the four properties, sleeping 16 people. This large apartment spreads over two floors with views of the Mar Lodge Estate’s heather and pine forests. It can comfortably accommodate 17 guests around the dinner table, making it ideal for family gatherings in a historic Highland setting. Open log fires in the lodge’s public rooms and acres of rambling walks around the estate will help you relax into Royal Deeside’s majestic country charm. Along with Dalvorar (ref 30759), it is one of the five apartments that make up Mar Lodge itself. Dalvorar (ref 30759) is a delightful property; the views from the balcony of this first floor apartment are breathtaking in the morning light; acres of pine forests on dramatic mountains. The apartment centrepiece is a unique semi-circular sitting room with classic dark wood bookcases built into the walls and is a snug retreat to come back to after a day’s walking on the estate. It’s little wonder travel author Pete Irvine named Mar Lodge the best place in Scotland to have a house party. Royal Deeside weaves along the River Dee, overlapping the Cairngorms National Park and Aberdeenshire. Best known for its majestic scenery, it is also an area rich in wildlife from alpine flora to Scottish wildcats. Deeside’s most famous admirer, Queen Victoria, purchased the Balmoral estate in 1848, and the royal connections continue to this day, with Princes William and Harry being regular visitors to the area. The nearest town to Mar Lodge Estate is Braemar where you’ll find local amenities as well as bases for hiking and skiing. Adventure-lovers can test themselves with challenging mountain hikes, while gentler walks can be enjoyed along lowland paths through magnificent countryside. Summertime is perfect for mountain-biking, and in winter downhill and cross-country skiing at Glenshee are only a short drive away. The following activities are available on the estate by prior arrangement, ‘Live like a laird’- journey out as dawn breaks to see the waking of the black grouse, then return to the lodge for a hearty, full Scottish breakfast. ‘Shoot with a camera’- accompany the estate’s stalkers into the hills to see stags roaming as the mist lifts or try traditional field sports which include stag stalking, grouse shooting and salmon fishing. These lodges are a popular base for weddings, large events or corporate gatherings. Claybokie’s dining room seats 18 people and properti...
