Down In The Glen: Aberdeenshire

If you're looking for a holiday home with a difference then this house, in the tranquil surroundings of Glen Dye, is the perfect pick. With a range of thoughtful amenities and an excellent location right on the doorstep of the highlands, you'll settle in within no time at all.

There's a distinctly quirky feel to the house, which combines rustic furnishings with more modern touches – think wood paneling meets bold framed posters. For chilly evenings, there's a stove that will keep you toasty as you sip a wee dram, and your hosts will even provide the firewood. At the back of the home you'll find a games room, along with a Swedish hot tub for long, luxurious soaks under the stars. And, there's even a vegetable patch, a sauna, and a BYOB pub on-site for you to use, and perhaps make friends with your neighbours too.

From here, you can drive to the Cairngorms National Park in just twenty minutes, to experience the very best that Scotland has to offer. Enjoy an invigorating hike through the rugged mountain landscapes, or hop on your bike to explore the wilderness on two wheels. And, if you want to head for the coast, you can drive to the pretty seaside town of Stonehaven within half an hour for fresh fish and chips on the beach.

Home truths:
*Dogs are welcome to come along
*You will need a car to explore the area – there is space to park at the house
*Electric vehicle charging is available
*Your host has other homes on the same estate – get in touch if you'd like to book more than one cottage
*The sauna and BYOB pub are shared with other residents of the complex
*You can use your laptop at the dining table if you need to work remotely
