Martha Simpson purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Martha Simpson chose Ellon
Pitmedden is a lovely rural village well positioned for enjoying the fantastic beaches of the North East of Scotland. There are 17 castles in Aberdeenshire, a great Coastal Trail, and we are near the Whisky Trail. Although it has country feel to it, it is only 16 miles to the vibrant city of Aberdeen, although best loved for its access to the sea on the east, and the mountains in the west of the area.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is at the end of a private road. It is a truly peaceful oasis, and the addition of the log burning stove in the bedroom means you can tuck up with a good book at any time of the year. We have recently installed central heating as we continue to make it the perfect getaway.

Excellent place as a base for seeing everything that is worth seeing. I loved it.
Thank you Carole. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Martha
Thanks Gerry - perhaps we will see you next time!
We found the bothy both snug and conveniently situated for both coast and mountains
Owners were friendly and helpful and the neighbourhood was quite which we like. WiFi was a bit hit and miss but as it was a get away that was ok.
Glad you had such a good time at the Bothy, and you enjoyed the wildlife, the coast and the mountains further inland. The two foot walls which make it snug are sometimes implicated in the wifi effectiveness. It works best near the window. Hope this helps for next time.
We had a great time and were able to see a great deal. Martha was so helpful. The Bothy is just right for two and is close to many things we enjoyed seeing.
Glad you had a great time exploring the many features of the area - and I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday in Scotland! Happy travels...
