    “The property was very clean and in an excellent location for Stonehaven and Dunnator castle and other National trust for Scotland properties along with Balmoral.”

    The property needed in my view to change the mattress on the main bed soon as this is uncomfortable and put out some garden chairs to sit out in the garden.

About the property

This idyllic cottage is tucked away in a traditional stone former steading, set in old established woods with well maintained trails, on the edge of the town of Stonehaven.

The quiet location is perfect for families or a group of friends to escape from their everyday routine.

Step into the well equipped kitchen and you will also find a table and chairs which makes it an ideal place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or an evening dinner.

Moving round, a sitting room features a welcoming gas woodburning stove, comfortable seating and patio doors which open out to the courtyard.

A ground floor basin and WC lies just before the stairs.

Wander up to the next floor, and there is a comfortable, bright, spacious double bedroom with extensive views through the front window and courtyard views at rear window.

To the other side, another room holds three single beds, enhanced by natural lighting.

Lastly, a family bathroom is a signature part of this layout, containing a comfortable bath and a separate shower to meet your needs.

After relaxing inside, why not step into the gardens when the sun is shining and make the most of your surroundings.

You will be spoiled for choice during your stay, with the city of Aberdeen accessible from Stonehaven by train, bus or car and whiskey trails nearby.

Travel to the famous Dunnottar Castle on the land train tour from Stonehaven's Market Square, or spend a day exploring the museums including infamous Peterhead Prison Museum.

For those who love the outdoors, mountains, hills, Lochs and Glens with all levels of walking and hiking, bird watching, National Parks, Royal Deeside, berry farms, beautiful beaches and dolphin watching trips are in the surrounding area.

About the location


Aberdeen 15 miles.

Formerly the county town of Kincardineshire, Stonehaven is a resort town, set in a sheltered position where the Carron Water and the Cowie Water empty into the North Sea. This attractive seaside resort, with heated open-air Olympic size swimming pool and 18 hole golf course, has a picturesque and sheltered harbour, busy with sailing yachts. The Tolbooth Museum is a notable building situated on the quayside, and the great fortress of Dunnottar Castle (whose origins date from the 11th Century) is situated on the sheer 160 foot cliff tops to the south of the town. Close at hand, Fowlsheugh RSPB Seabird Colony is home to the largest seabird colony in mainland Britain, and is well worth a visit. Stonehaven also boasts a fine selection of shops, hotels and restaurants to suit all tastes, as well as offering great opportunities to hike, cycle, walk, ride or even ski! With the amenities of Aberdeen within an easy drive, this is a great location for exploring all that this lovely part of Scotland has to offer.
