• About Drumniall Cottage

    This 19th century cottage is in a great location from which to explore the surrounding scenery, with lochs, forests and mountains all nearby.

    Sleeping four people in two double bedrooms it is ideally suited for couples seeking a particularly comfortable and unusual getaway together.
    Step inside Drumniall Cottage and you will instantly find a haven of peace and tranquillity. Crammed with lots of interesting hidden gems and subtle signs pointing to the vernacular heritage of the cottage, it is an absolute treasure trove of interesting artefacts and artworks. Particularly suited for couples, this detached cottage, next to the owner’s home and on a working farm, has been renovated to retain the early 19th century character of the cottage, yet incorporates everyday comforts. The absence of a television only enhances the atmosphere and ambiance of Drumniall. However the excellent Wi-Fi reception means you can still catch up on the world outside. The very restful rooms are complemented by traditional furnishings, a very efficient wood burner in the living room and a plethora of books and other literature to immerse yourself in. Its south-facing aspect makes the most of stunning views over Royal Deeside, and its central location makes it an ideal base for enjoying the many activities and experiences available in the area. Regretably pets are not permitted due to the close proximity of sheep in the fields.
    Rich in historical sites, there are many to visit within close proximity, including Craigievar Castle, the ‘jewel’ of the famed Castles of Aberdeenshire, which is just minutes away. Nature lovers will not be disappointed, with many species of bird, including golden eagles, having been spotted near to the cottage, and deer herds in neighbouring Glentanar and Glenshee.
    Royal Deeside is famed for the quality of its landscape and scenery, with farmland, forests, lochs, rivers, upland moors and high mountains. Walks of different type and length can be enjoyed from the cottage itself, whilst the famous Cairngorm Mountains are just a short car journey away. A striking view of Lochnagar, 3,800ft, is to be had from outside the cottage itself.
    Balmoral, the Royal Family’s Highland home is just a few miles from Drumniall Cottage and many walks can be enjoyed on the estate itself throughout the year. The Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve is a short drive from the cottage, whilst pony trekking, gliding, quad-riding, skiing (in season), fishing, shooting and golf are readily available nearby. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 2¾ miles.

    Superbly equipped. The only niggle? - there is only one table to work on - which is a bit cramped for two people spending lot of time on laptops checking the flying weather - but I'm a bit stuck as to where another one could be put; perhaps a set of nesting ones somewhere?

    A great little cottage - ideal for couples or a family of three. A beautiful location. All very clean and well equipped. The owner Paddy is very generous and accommodating. One week is not enough!

    We loved our week at Drumniall. The cottage and its surrounding area are beautiful. There is a lot to do, walks, tours and more outdoor activities. The cottage had everything that you could ask for and we were never left wanting- the kitchen in particular was great for us to make our own meals. Paddy was an excellent host and provided us with a warm welcome and has great knowledge of the area. He checked in on us via text a couple of time throughout the week to make sure everything was okay with the cottage and was around on the grounds if we needed him but it was not enough to disturb our privacy. Thank you again for having us Paddy and we hope to come again some time in the future. Chris and Khalin.

    Drumniall Cottage is full of character and is very well located in a peaceful area with fantastic views above the Dee Valley. The cottage contained everything we needed and was well equipped. Paddy was a wonderful host, with a great knowledge of the local area.

    We have found it at last!! Our perfect little bolt hole, homely, a place where we can breathe, relax, enjoy the beautiful Scottish landscape, get away from the hustle and bustle for a while, before returning to the fleshpots of Edinburgh. We stayed at Drumniall Cottage for the 2019 Easter weekend. From the moment we met our host Paddy and walked into this charming cottage we felt right at home and already started to conjure up plans for a return visit! We loved playing music sat in front of the snug wood burning stove and enjoyed the spectacular views from the gardens out front. It's a fantastic base to explore the beauty of this part of the Cairngorms. Paddy Heron is the perfect host - attentive, friendly, welcoming and full of local knowledge of places to visit, walks to enjoy and places to eat. We highly recommend Paddy and Drumniall Cottage and will be back for a return visit.

    Druminall fulfilled all our hopes for a relaxing Christmas retreat in a beautiful setting. The weather was mild during our stay making walking and golf a pleasure. The cottage contains many interesting antiques, books and paintings and it is a cosy space in which to unwind. The owner, Paddy , ensures you have everything you need, including a welcome pack, mid week wine and all the local knowledge you could ask for.
