Our cottage is situated within the fantastic Cairngorm National Park, 8 miles from Glenshee ski centre and 25 miles from Balmoral, the Scottish home of the Royal family. We have wonderful walks and scenery locally including the famous Cateran trail used by sheep rustlers in the 19th century. A car is essential to visit and appreciate the numerous attractions situated in every direction from the cottage. Perth, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, Stirling and Inverness are all accessable for days out, with ample time for sightseeing. Wildlife is a prominent attraction, from the Red Squirrel to the majestic Red Deer. At the Blackwater reservoir, eight miles away, there have been sitings of Sea Eagles and Osprey and this is a fantastic place to take a picnic, chill out and let the world slip by! Below the cottage runs the Shee water, a salmon and trout river where one can fish if the necessary permits are purchased and it is the fishing season.
