United Kingdom / Scotland / Banchory, Kincardineshire
Converted granite steading with the charm of Scottish heritage and the practicality of modern living. Open views across nearby forests and Crathes castle. A
bright and modern kitchen, spacious dining room, lounge and family room give plenty of space to spread out.
There are 5 bedrooms: 2 doubles (with ensuites) + 3 singles (family bathroom).
Farehill is half of a converted U-shaped steading (barns) with a farm house behind so only 3 dwellings together.
Nearest shops in Banchory 3 miles away. 50 metres to pleasant walks by the river Dee (salmon fishing). There are lovely walks in the woods around Crathes castle 1 mile across the river.
There are a number of good golf courses nearby and in the wider area (just over an hour to St.Andrews).
There are plenty of places to explore up the valley including Balmoral, several castles, picturesque glens, distilleriesm, Highland games (including Braemar) or venture into the Cairngorms and Highlands. It's easy day trips down to Edinburgh or Glasgow (good options for flights as well as from Aberdeen). Alternatively beautiful beaches await you a short distance to the East, and it's only 20 minutes into Aberdeen for great eating or evening entertainment.
