The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and modern with extra touches such as a welcome basket of goodies on arrival. The owner was very welcoming and attentive and made our stay very pleasant. We would definitely recommend to other families who like the outdoor life, although popping in to Aberdeen was also very convenient!
