Create lasting memories in this bright and beautifully refurbished Keepers Cottage, situated within the picturesque Dalnaglar Castle estate, on the southern fringe of the Cairngorms National Park.
Relax and unwind with family or friends in this well-equipped, three bedroom cottage that sleeps six, either in six single beds or two doubles and a twin. 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 a short drive away.
The upstairs bedroom has twin beds and its own en-suite shower room with power-shower. The two ground floor bedrooms can be set up as twin bedrooms or zip-and-linked to make super kingsize beds. They are situated at opposite ends of the cottage and share a shower room with walk-in shower.
The light and spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living area has a wood burner and wall-mounted 70" plasma TV with Sky Sports and movie packages included. The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, double oven and hob, microwave and Denby dinner service.
Open the patio door and enjoy some fun time with the children or relax with your family/friends in the large rear garden, with a newly fitted decking area with seating and magnificent views over the southern Cairngorms.
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 Keepers 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. With a choice of 55 munros (four of which have the highest mountains in the UK) for beginner and experienced hill walkers to conquer. Kayakers and canoeists will enjoy exploring the challenging network of rivers (instructor led beginner sessions can be arranged).
If you prefer to enjoy the wild highland scenery from the comfort of your car, you’ll love the breathtaking 90-mile Snowroads stretch. The route, starting in the nearby market town of Blairgowrie, takes you past the Dalnaglar Estate and up through the east Cairngorms to the Highland town of Grantown-on-Spey. At the end of a busy day’s adventure, what better way to relax than in your own private hot tub outside on the decking. Shop, pub and restaurant 9 miles.
