Why The Owner chose Aberdeen City & Shire

The countryside around the Hayloft rises from mixed farmland and woodland up to the heather hills, all lying between the valleys of the rivers Dee and Don. It is a quiet rural area giving easy access to many opportunities for enjoyment of the beautiful countryside. Within easy reach are nature reserves, walks ranging from waymarked forest ways to more challenging wild country, some of the best fishing in Scotland, two ski resorts (The Lecht & Glenshee) and, after all that, a range of good places to eat good quality food from the area and relax.

The farm itself offers easy walks and we are happy to share information about the farm and the animals as well as the conservation work we undertake to encourage wildlife through the creation of wetlands, planting hedges, digging ponds and the sensitive management of grassland and crops.

What makes this cottage unique

Aberdeenshire is a beautiful and varied county, taking in everything from sea cliffs and sandy beaches to Munro's (hills higher than 3,000ft) giving visitors a wide range of opportunities and experiences. Famed for its food and drink (it's whiskey and beef in particular) and it's many castles (plenty of which can be visited) it also offers a wide range of outdoor activities from the formal such as golf and watersports to many opportunities for quieter explorations of the countryside through walking or cycling and looking out for the rich and varied wildlife of the region. There is a large selection of brochures, local information and maps in the property to look through.

The Visit Royal Deeside website has a comprehensive list of local places of interest and current events. Other sites worth looking at for local interest are The National Trust for Scotland and Visit Scotland.

Schöne sehr ruhige Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

DieUnterkunft war wie beschrieben,

der Zustand der Wohnung war echt ok.

Die Wohnung war gut vorbereitet und wer mit dem PKW unterwegs ist kann sich viele Sehenswürdigkeiten ansehen.

Ich empfehle die Unterkunft weiter auch an Freunde.

Eine Einschränkung möchte ich jedoch zum Schluss anführen, dass Internet (Wifi) war nicht vorhanden, aus diesem Grunde mussten wir die Planung der Ausflüge von Unterwegs machen, Schottland und das Internet außerhalb von Städten ist nicht immer einfach.
