    Hoseasons "This 19th century cottage is in a great location from which to explore the surrounding scenery with lochs forests and mountains all nearby.\n\n\nSleeping four people in two double bedrooms it is ideally suited for couples seeking a particularly comfortable and unusual getaway together.\nStep 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.\nRich 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. \nRoyal 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 3800ft is to be had from outside the cottage itself. \nBalmoral 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.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAll on the \nground floor.\n\n\nLivingdining room \nWith wood burner DVD player with monitor iPod dock wooden floor and vaulted ceiling.\n\nKitchen \nWith electric oven gas hob fridgefreezer dishwasher washerdryer and tiled floor.\n\nBedroom 1\n With double bed and wooden floor.\n\nBedroom 2 \nWith double bed and wooden floor.\n\nShower room \nWith shower cubicle toilet heated towel rail and tiled floor.\n\nOil central heating underfloor in kitchen and shower room electricity bed linen towels Wi-Fi and logs for wood burner included.

    Drumniall Cottage is set in a beautiful part of the world and has got to be the most comfortable and cosy cottage we have ever stayed in. Rather than your standard holiday accommodation where the basics are provided, Drumniall has everything you need to ensure you enjoy the 'home comforts' as much as exploring Aberdeenshire. Paddy the owner is absolutely lovely and its really important to him you enjoy your stay, offering advice and guidance on how to make the most of your time at Drumniall. Needless to say, we will be returning later this year.

    A beautiful cottage full of character and interesting features, and surrounded by gorgeous countryside. Paddy went out of his way to make us feel very welcome: we arrived after a long drive to Christmas decorations, a roaring fire and a nice bottle of red - what more could we ask for?! We all felt instantly at home and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from it all and relax.

    Really lovely stay at Drumniall. Everything has been thought about and is well equipped. Views from the cottage were beautiful and sitting by the log burner of an evening was just perfect. Christmas decorations were done really nicely and we had the best christmas in the scottish highlands. Really good hospitality from Paddy and would certainly love to visit again.

    Delightful cosy cottage and highly recommended.



    out of 10

    Excellent facilities with so many interesting homely bits and bobs within the cottage all visible and there on trust. A lot of attention to a welcome package, many culinary extras available for use. Comfy bed, loads of logs if needed Paddy was a very welcoming and obliging host. Never intrusive, but there if needed. If you like to read you would be there for ever considering the number of books on shelves. Overall a perfect quiet hideaway.

    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?

    Stunning and cosy cottage in beautiful country setting. Full of history and fitted with a true sense of tradition, this place is for sure on our return list.

    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.
