Rhinabaich Cottage is a granite built farmhouse typical of rural Aberdeenshire. It is located in the Cairngorms National Park and sits in a sheltered position on the southfacing slope of Gellaig, one of the largest mountains on Deeside.
The cottage is modern and cosy inside, and features a spectular multiwindowed lounge with panoramic open views down and across the Dee Valley, and over the Balmoral Estate to Lochnagar, the highest mountain of the east Grampians.
Open fires in the lounge and dining room augment the oil-fired central heating, and logs are provided in the winter. Wifi, Freesat TV and Blueray DVD are all provided too.
The cottage has four bedrooms: a Master bedroom and smaller double bedroom downstairs, and a further double bedroom and twin single bedroom upstairs. A travel cot is available if required.
The modern oak kitchen has a contemporary five burner gas cooker, with NEFF oven and microwave, fridgefreezer, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer: everything to make your holiday comfortable.
The recently refurbished bathrooms each have toilets and showers, and one has a bath.
Outside there is ample private driveway parking, a well stocked spacious garden, garden furniture, a Weber Barbecue,a table tennis table and a 12 foot trampoline with safety net.
The land around the cottage offers fascinating exploring of the delightful stream, hillside and woods, and of the nearyby ruins of ancient cottages, remnants of one of the many thriving crofting communities which dotted the area in times gone by.
The location is just ideal for a relaxing break amid the glory of Royal Deeside, with stunning views of the River Dee, over the Balmoral Estate and on to magestic Lochnagar, the highest mountain in the east Grampians.
The cottage offers complete privacy, but is just 4 miles from Ballater, a beautiful and vibrant village which has long enjoyed the patronage of the Royal Family, as Balmoral Castle is nearby.
All linen is provided, including towels, sheets etc.
Pets are not allowed, and the cottage is non-smoking.
At the end of your holiday, you don't need to clean,do laundry etc as this will be done for you. We just ask that you strip your beds and leave the cottage and garden tidy for us.
Whether you just want to relax and enjoy the lovely views, shop in the charming artisan shops of Ballater, fish in the Dee or walk the paths through the forests and climb or ski in the mountains of Royal Deeside, we are sure you will have an unforgettable holiday at Rhinabaich Cottage.
