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!
The cottage is detached from the main house and offers privacy. There is a separate sleeping and eating area. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with mini-fridge. It is located within easy walking distance of restaurants and shopping in town and many are attractions are within easy driving distance!
Lisa was very helpful and friendly, offering recommendations for dining and sightseeing in the area. We highly recommend this accommodation when you come to visit this part of Scotland!
