    This spacious detached lodge, with its own private hot tub, is set in a wonderful position, on a lodge park with other properties nearby, and with fantastic views over Cairn o’ Mount. The stylishly furnished, open-plan layout takes full advantage of the setting with an enclosed decking area perfect for dining out whilst enjoying the fabulous views.

    Fishing on the River Dee, walking amongst beautiful scenery (try Lochnagar or Mount Keen) or cycling on the dedicated paths in the area are just some of the many outdoor activities available in abundance in this magical area. A brilliant base for touring, Royal Deeside begs to be explored with fantastic walks on moor and mountain, river and loch fishing, cycle trails and pony trekking. Strachan is just a 30-minute drive from Aberdeen with its theatres, bars, gardens and shopping centres, and in winter, the ski resorts of Lecht and Cairngorm are easily accessible. Shop, pub and restaurant 5 miles.

    This was my second stay at Serendipity and had a fantastic time again. The lodge was immaculate and very well maintained and has everything you need for a great home away from home. We used the hot tub every evening as the sun was setting and again I could not tire of the views from the decking. Maureen, the owner is a lovely lady and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this property and I will defo be returning!
