About the location

We live in a small Village in Aberdeenshire near the Bennachie hill range (5 minutes from our doorstep) with beautiful views and plenty of walking. The house is in a quiet location on the outskirts of the village. The Cairngorm National Park and the Aberdeenshire coast with beautiful beaches can both be reached within 40 minutes travel.
