Wonderful home for long term stay

  • 5 of 5

We booked Sunnybrae for a month long stay in the Cairngorms for sightseeing and hiking, and were thrilled with this home! It provided plenty of space for a party of 7, rooms one could sneak off to for a nap without being disturbed, a spacious kitchen and table for all to gather around, all the while being centrally located in the Highlands to explore. It has all the amenities one needs for an extended stay. The owners were very helpful both in the lead up to our trip as well as during our stay, as was the property manager who lives in the village. The village itself was a real treat and is an easy walk from the house. Braemar offers many hikes and is a great locations for day trips to explore the culture and history of the Highlands. I highly recommend this rental!

A clean, spacious and well located property

  • 4 of 5

The house is roomy, once one gets used to the layout. The garden is big and it's a very peaceful spot

The electricity supply is metered and needs to be paid for separately - be careful with the use of the storage heaters as these can chew up a lot of cash. On the flip side the coal burning fires are like small power stations. Great place for a holiday.

Braemar Holiday Home

  • 4 of 5

This is an ideal holiday home for a family stay in Braemar. Comfortable with plenty of living space. There is a snug area off the open plan kitchen area, this is where the tv lives and the kids can relax on the sofa in front of the wood/coal burning stove and watch telly at the end of the day. Another sitting room has plenty of books, a stereo and another multi fuel stove, ideal for those who don't want to watch the tv. The kitchen is fairly well equipped but could do with a bit of a makeover, as could the upstairs bathroom although I believe the bathroom is in line for a refurb very soon. However the house was clean and I would be happy to recommend it to others.

There is a huge south facing garden which overlooks the games park. The house is a few minutes walk from the village and there is a coffee shop, Taste, at the bottom of the brae. The Moorfield Hotel is a couple of minutes away. Braemar is surrounded by the most beautiful landscapes and when we were there in October we could hear the stags roaring in the hills. We enjoyed plenty walks - up Morrone one day, to Loch Callater another and along the Dee at the Linn of Dee on the white bridge walk. Braemar Gallery is lovely. We also headed into Ballater for lunch at the Station one day - great fish and chips.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for this review. I'm very glad you enjoyed it! Yes, the upstairs bathroom is just waiting for the end of the season this year to be re-modeled. We already have the material and so it will have a heated slate floor, new fitted basin and a large glass shower and we are planning to get it all done in November. We are looking forward to it! The downstairs bathroom of course is quite new and has a bath with shower. With best wishes, Anna

New Year in Braemar

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights up in Sunnybrae, Braemar. I was blown away by how homely the house felt, it has been fitted out with all the necessary utensils that a holiday self-catered house should need which made cooking extremely straightforward and stress free. The house is warm, full of light, dry and very cosy. The entire house was very clean, well furnished and the beds where all comfortable. Braemar its self, is a lovely little village with a small convenient store full of all the necessary supplies along with a characterful pub in the centre of the very pretty village. We had a smashing few days and look hope to return again one day in the future. Many thanks.

Charming house

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été enchantés par notre séjour à Sunny Brae pour 2 semaines. La maison est charmante et le jardin magnifique. La maison est bien équipée, assez grande, parfaite pour se reposer après une longue journée de randonnée. This is a very nice house for family holydays with children, dog and cat. And Scotland is a wonderfull country, with the Highlands, Cairngorms, castle, Edinburgh and the festivals. Scottish people (also in the village where you could find everything you may need) are warm and helpful... They are fortunate!

Braemar. In a quiet spacious location within easy walking distance of the centre of the village of Braemar in the Cairngorms National Park. Near Balmoral castle, Braemar has a wonderful golf course in the mountains and is close to Mar Lodge and the beautiful river Quoich. Our garden looks south over the grounds of the Royal Braemar Highland Gathering held each year in September.
