Choose from beautiful walks along the River Dee, or if you are feeling more energetic try mountain biking, horse-riding, canoeing or fishing. In winter the ski slopes are only an hour away. There are 2 excellent golf courses in Banchory and castles to visit at Craithes and Drum. One of the extra luxuries, which can be offered at The Stables, is the assistance of Jenny and Joan. They can provide a delicious breakfast, prepare a picnic lunch or conjure up a great supper and being locals, they can advise on the local area. The house is located in a woodland setting 2.5 miles west of Banchory at the end of a private road. It has been recently renovated to a high standard and offers hugely comfortable living. A double and twin (both ensuite) bedroom and 2 twin rooms sharing a bathroom are in the main house with a double and a twin room in the adjoining annex sharing a shower room. A large sitting room with log burner and sky tv, separate dining room, modern kitchen and wc are on the ground floor.More
