The gorgeous Potarch Lodge on the Deeside Way has been refurbished in 2023 to the highest standard. This is the perfect choice for an extended family holiday or a group of friends to enjoy a bit of luxury, with small personal touches throughout, including soft furnishings in the unique Ballogie tweed. Situated next to the Potarch Café, the perfect start to the day with speciality coffee, a menu showcasing estate and local produce, as well as very tasty home baking!
Providing beautiful accommodation for up to fourteen guests in seven en-suite bedrooms, and a large open plan kitchen, dining and seating area with a wood burning stove and a separate, cosy, sitting room with an open fireplace. Outside is a large enclosed private garden and patio area with a BBQ and private parking.
Potarch Lodge provides the perfect base for exploring the many visitor attractions within the area including National Trust for Scotland castles of Craigievar - a fine example of Scottish Baronial architecture; Crathes - an enchanting 16th century tower house, and Drum, one of Royal Deeside’s top historic attractions. Being only five miles from Aboyne, nine miles from Banchory, and less than an hour’s drive from Aberdeen, Ballogie is ideal for those who want to get away from it all, yet would still like to be within easy reach of local towns and cities. Close to the Forest of Birse, Glencatt and the River Dee, the lodge is perfectly located to offer excellent opportunities for sporting and outdoor enthusiasts, or lovers of wildlife and nature who enjoy long walks and exploring the local countryside.
Scotland is one of the finest salmon fishing destinations in Europe, and the River Dee in Aberdeenshire is a lure for fly fishing enthusiasts from all over the world. This majestic, fast flowing stretch of water set amongst the beauty of the Deeside Valley, sweeps along the northern edge of Ballogie Estate and fishing may be available by arrangement with the owners. If fishing is not your thing, there are many other activities in the surrounding area including hill walking, quad biking and pony trekking. The area is a mecca for wildlife enthusiasts, with the Muir of Dinnet Reserve, the Lochnagar Reserve and Mar Estate offering chances to glimpse ospreys, otters and wildfowl especially on the Lochs Kinnord and Davan. The ski slopes at the Lecht and Glenshee can be easily reached, and these areas also offer plenty of good hill walking. Locally, the towns of Ballater, Aboyne and Banchory have plenty of artisan shops and there are good eating places on the estate itself.
