Catch your breath in the charmingly refurbished Dalnaglar Cottage, situated within the enchanting Dalnaglar Castle estate, on the southern fringe of the Cairngorms National Park. Enjoy the space and serenity of this delightful three-bedroom cottage which sleeps five. Guests will enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the estate, the surrounding natural beauty and the variety of adventuring opportunities on their doorstep, including the ski slopes of Glenshee, which are just a short drive away.
The bright and spacious kitchen/dining area has a contemporary feel and joins into a comfortable living space with wood burner and 52" plasma TV with Sky sports and movie packages. The modern kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, electric oven and hob, microwave and Denby dinner service.
One of the two ground floor bedrooms can be set up as a twin bedroom or zip-and-linked to make a super kingsize bed, and the other is a single room. They share a shower room with walk-in shower. The upstairs twin has its own en-suite toilet and wash basin.
Create special family memories in the sizeable private garden with a stream running through. Relax and enjoy the spectacular views over the surrounding hills and glen with friends or family on the decking area with seating and table.
Stroll around the 200-acre estate, enjoying the fresh air and stunning views over the surrounding countryside. Take a stroll along, or fish for salmon (subject to fees and prior booking) on the River Shee which runs through the estate.
Venture out of the estate and there is plenty to keep you entertained. Skiers and snowboarders will benefit from Dalnaglar Cottage’s proximity to the popular Glenshee Snowsports Centre, just 10 miles away. Walkers will love the Caterlan Trail, with the second of the five stages of the 64-mile trail passing through the estate. This stage takes you along a beautiful moorland route to the trail’s highest point between Strathardle and Glenshee, offering spectacular views of glens and rugged peaks.
The cottage is also an ideal base for exploring the Cairngorms National Park.
