  • "This stay was not actually a holiday."

    Our company was exhibiting at SPE Offshore Europe event at the new TECA exhibition centre in Aberdeen and we decided to book the cottage for myself and 3 colleagues rather than stay in a hotel. We could not fault the facilities and comfort of the cottage and I would love to return with my family for a proper holiday in the area.

  • "Schoolhill Croft is the best property that we have ever stayed in."

    The property has a four star rating, however, in our opinion it deserves five! The property is spacious and easily accommodated the 7 adults and 3 children in our party. The property is spotlessly clean and a real home from home. The owner is really helpful. We highly recommend this property.

  • "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 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.

  • "Booking online through Sykes from U."

    S.A. was great. Having a seven hour time difference we didn't have to worry about business hours etc.. Any and all questions were promptly and courteously answered via email. This house was awesome. Everything advertised is true. We (5 adults) really enjoyed our time here. Too many positives to list! You just have to come see for yourself!

  • "This house was top notch for space comfort and was extremely well equipped - it had everything needed for a relaxing stay."

    The surrounding area had great coastal walks and fishing, a Parkrun in nearby Ellon as well as Brewdog brewery. What's not to like. Even the teenagers were impressed which really says it all.

Collieston 6.6 miles; Whinnyfold 10 miles; Cruden Bay 11 miles; Aberdeen 16.2 miles; Inverurie 14.4 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 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 water sports enthusiasts as is Balmeadie Beach for the stunning scenery and views.
