    Your precious family holiday starts right here! Set in the grounds of Blelack Farm, in the heart of Royal Deeside, this lovely property 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 names. 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.
    Blackbull Byre is set in the heart of the farm, it was formerly two cottages and has now been converted into a super, detached family house. Split level on the ground floor, there is a living room at each end one open with the kitchen/dining room. The staircase from the front living room leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom, while another from the rear living room takes you up to a further bedroom and bathroom. Outside, there is delightful, sunny, fully enclosed garden with patio for sitting out on warm days while watching the comings and goings of the farm.
    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 from a memorable holiday. Shop, pub and restaurant 3½ miles.

What a gem we found in Blackbull Byre. The accommodation was excellent, everything you could think of was provided. Off the beaten track, but a lovely part of the country. We had a fantastic time and fully recommend this property.

Lovely cottage,perfect enclosed garden for our dog to enjoy. Comfortable & well equipped, all beds comfy except the bed/mattress in the main bedroom could do with replacing. Fantastic location, great get away but also only 10/15 min drive from Ballater & Aboyne. Spoilt for choice with so many fabulous walks in the area, great for cycling too, lots for all the family to enjoy. Will definitely return to this well kept cottage.

Lovely cosy , clean cottage and well equipped. We were there during a cold & snowy time of year and so loved the wood burning stove and appreciated the ample supply of logs. Situated in a peaceful spot of the countryside perfect for a relaxing break but yet near enough the local villages for shops/restaurants/etc. Local walks to get you out in the fresh air and the owners also offer to show you around their farm if you wish. Vikki was very helpful right from booking through to our time at Black Bull Byre - thank you - we all really enjoyed our stay at the cottage!
