My place is good for couples, business travellers, and families (with kids).
Thornton Cottage is in Royal Deeside. Aberdeen city centre for shopping and entertainment is 10 miles away, while the beach front and promenade are two miles further on.
Heading West from the top of the track takes you to Banchory ( seven miles) for local shopping and then on to Braemar and the beautiful mountains of the Cairngorms.
There are castles and golf courses on the doorstep.
Drum Castle is walkable up the hill.

The space
Thornton was converted from a late 1800s castle workers bothy. The conversion was finished to a high standard. It is kept warm with oil central heating upstairs and underfloor heating throughout the downstairs living areas.

Out to the side, through French doors from the lounge, is another patio which has two steps up to a lawn.
