Our organiser did not tell us there was an annex so we were somewhat put out when we had to walk 5 minutes to our accommodation whereas most of our group were in the main building. One single woman had a sumptuous suite so I am really intrigued...

My wife took me here for my birthday along with my 3 month old daughter and my German shepherd dog rocky. It's a real hidden gem Ballathie, the staff are absolutely brilliant and very accommodating who were also very good with my dog.

We wondered as we drove back to Ballathie if it could be as good as last year. It was not! It was even better!! This time, our room was in the main house. No lift made it a little difficult for me to go to our room; all rooms in the house are first floor and some plumbing is old....
