Banchory Holiday Cottages

Nestled just 20 miles west of Aberdeen, this charming Scottish town often gets overlooked as a holiday spot—but it shouldn't be. Enveloped by serene rural countryside and perched along the banks of the River Dee, Banchory serves as an ideal launching pad for adventures in the Cairngorms National Park and along North Scotland's breathtaking coastline. A visit to the unspoiled Falls of Feugh is a must-see experience. Here, you can witness salmon making their incredible journey upstream through fast-flowing, snow-fed waters—a sight that's nothing short of awe-inspiring. If fishing isn't your thing, you'll find plenty to do with ample opportunities for walking, cycling, or even a round of golf. History buffs will revel in exploring not one but two magnificent castles: Crathes Castle and Drum Castle each offer unique glimpses into Scotland's storied past. And if you're seeking more adventurous pursuits? Try your hand at river canoeing, archery on scenic grounds, or the thrill of quad biking. However you choose to spend your time here, rest assured that our cosy Banchory holiday cottages will provide the perfect sanctuary after days filled with exploration and wonder.
