    Mrs Duncan

    “A fantastic property in great location for exploring local beaches, castles and coves.”

    The house itself was furnished to a high standard. Games room and second lounge is a bonus and a lovely place to unwind after a long day.

    The house itself was furnished to a high standard. Games room and second lounge is a bonus and a lovely place to unwind after a long day. The owner is very helpful and thoughtful touches like a book explaining how all the machines work, even though he does explain it all on the walk through when you arrive, also the bottle of fizz for the adults and milk for the children was greatly appreciated.

The cottage

Ellon 4 miles.

This simply stunning house occupies a lovely well maintained garden area extending to an acre and has fabulous far reaching views across the lovely Aberdeenshire countryside and over to the famous hills of Bennachie.

With so much space, Schoolhill Croft would ideally suit a family or group of friends who want to explore Aberdeenshire and have a superior holiday home as a base.

The accommodation is over two floors with five spacious bedrooms, two with en-suites and also two sitting rooms.

There are large televisions all around the house and a very special extra is the games room complete with snooker table and Wii.

The garden is mostly laid to lawn and is fully enclosed providing a great and safe outdoor space for children to play.

The large decked area is ideal for an early evening BBQ and visitors can simply gaze at the stunning vista.

A very well equipped kitchen means that home cooking is easy with everything a chef could possibly require.

However the villages of Cruden Bay, Ellon and Newburgh offer opportunities for guests to venture out for a meal with a choice of hotels and restaurants.

This holiday home is perfect for families who love beaches as Collieston Beach is just a mile away and is a sheltered beach with a small harbour, and Newburgh, just 4 miles away also has a wonderful sandy beach and is home to an extensive sand dune system at the mouth of the Ythan River.

For Golfers the area is simply quite rich, with the Trump International Golf Links almost on the doorstep, along with many other courses close by.

The granite city of Aberdeen is within a 30 minute drive and there is so much to see and do that guests will simply run out of time.

This stunning house ensures a simply wonderful holiday for all.

About the location


Cruden Bay 4 miles; Cruden Bay 10.9 miles.

The small but lively town of Ellon is some 16 miles from the City of Aberdeen and is situated on the River Ythan. It provides excellent local services with a good selection of shops, hotels and restaurants offering varied cuisine to suit all tastes. The Riverside Park offers walkways alongside the River Ythan, from which herons, salmon, trout and otters may be observed and the river banks are a favourite with wildlife enthusiasts. Or visit the ruins of Ellon Castle dating from the 16th century and take a wander through the pretty gardens. The town of Cruden Bay close by is well worth a visit as it boasts a sweeping expanse of pink sands approximately 2.5 km in length. The beach is popular with watersports enthusiasts.
