    Large enclosed lawned garden with sitting-out area and garden furniture. 2 dogs welcome, to be kept on a lead at all times (working farm). Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking.

    Set in the grounds of Blelack Farm, in the heart of Royal Deeside, this lovely semi-detached cottage is perfect for those special times with your loved ones. Renowned for its herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle, these black beauties are the inspiration for the house name. At sale time, the bulls can be seen being walked around the farm and at breeding time the playful calves can be seen in the surrounding fields.
    The surrounding area is in the Cairngorms National Park, a wild and beautiful space of high mountains, forest and moorland. The abundance of wildlife including hare, deer, red squirrel and eagles will please nature lovers. Invigorating walks through gorgeous scenery, bike trails, pony trekking and even gliding are all to be enjoyed in the local wilderness. Civilisation is also within easy reach, with the towns and villages of Ballater, Banchory and Aboyne, strung out on the Victorian Heritage Trail, all close by.
    Balmoral Castle is well worth a visit and in the surrounding area there are many other gardens and castles to visit. Other activities close at hand include fishing, golf and swimming. In the winter, skiing at the Lecht or Glenshee is readily accessible. The choice of restaurants nearby ranges from village pubs to gourmet dining. In short, there is everything here you could want for a memorable holiday. Shop, pub and restaurant 3½ miles.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Black Bull Cottage. The owner was just lovely and could not have done more for us. My daughter loved the Pygmy goats and being able to stroke and cuddle them. The views and the walks were amazing. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

    We all liked the cottage. Cosy, calm, lots of place, enclosed garden for the dog. Books, magazines and also information about touristic attractions were there - I always appreciate that. Owner was helpful and friendly. Inconvenient is: The shower is really difficult to adjust to an acceptable temperature. It would be better to have more than one toilet for 5. The WIFI wasn't working on one morning. Please add some gardenchairs - the weather was great, we would have used them.

    Very handy for exploring the area around Aboyne, Ballater and Braemar. Comfortable, well equipped cottage located on a working farm. Very quiet location, but close to all of the towns in the area. The kitchen was particularly well equiped, the living room was cosy and homely and the bedrooms were all comfortable and well decorated. We would happily return here in the future

    My family and I (3 adults, 2 children and a dog) had a great week at Black Bull Cottage. The cottage was beautiful, very comfortable and well equipped. It was the perfect base for exploring the area and only a short distance to shops and restaurants. Vikki was very friendly and very helpful if we needed anything. Highly recommend.
