We have four specially designed and equipped self-catering holiday cottages situated in a beautifully paved courtyard looking over the River Dee in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.

It is the perfect destination for people with disabilities as each cottage comes equipped with wheel-in shower, clos-o-mat toilet and height-adjustable sink in the bathroom and a ceiling track hoist (except Gairn cottage), the main bedroom has an electric height-adjustable bed and ceiling track hoist.

The kitchen surfaces and appliances are all wheelchair accessible with room to manoeuvre.

There is also a range of special equipment available, at no extra cost, such as mobile hoist, monkey pole, shower chairs, pressure relief mattress etc.

The furniture and fittings are of extremely high quality and design, and each cottage has recently been refurbished and has its own individual style.

Other on-site facilities include a fully-equipped laundry room, a glazed Garden Room for lazy days, a children’s play area and riverside patio.

We also have a rustic log cabin where you can relax and enjoy the natural beauty surrounding you.

The warmth of the welcome is fantastic; the staff are all fully committed to ensuring that their guests enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday among the splendour of Royal Deeside.
