The Studio at Kenblethmont was perfect! It was clean and comfortable in a beautiful setting, and it is centrally located so we were able to venture out in any direction to explore Scotland. When we weren't travelling to other towns or cities, we found the surrounding grounds a peaceful, engaging alternative. It was truly a home away from home, and I would highly recommend staying here.
We loved our stay at Cornellan Cottage. First, Ballater is the perfect location for a home base -- the town is big enough to have everything you need, but small enough to retain its charm and walkability. Situated right on the River Dee, in the beautiful highlands, it is a feast for the eyes. The cottage was bright and well appointed, with beautiful French doors in each lower room. We couldn't have been happier there, and will hope to stay again. Lets put it this way...while walking about town, I didn't once wish I were staying anywhere else. It was the best!
