“Second visit, looking forward to going back.”
Reviewed 19 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Second visit. House is spacious, clean and well equipped. Were able to sit out and BBQ in the lovely garden. Enjoyed the walks. It was great to be able to walk to village, along river etc without having to drive. Ballater itself has a nice atmosphere with nice shops to pop in and out of and plenty eateries for meals, snacks and coffees. The surrounding scenery is breath taking which I think is what attracts me to the area. I look forward to visiting again and of course would recommend this to any reader.

“Beautiful holiday home”
Reviewed 13 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Gorgeous house in a lovely, peaceful setting but not too far from the town centre. The 3 bed house is fully equiped with everything you could possibly need & although we took our own tea/coffee etc this was also provided along with free wifi. Our 15 month daughter loved running around in the big, enclosed garden & we loved the walk along the river into Ballater. We had a great time & cant wait to go back.

“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 11 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Perfect situation by the River Dee with a variety of walks and lots of bird watching. Accommodation was lovely and everyone agreed that the beds were very comfy! Ballater is a beautiful village with a good selection of restaurants- try The Rock Salt and Snail for light eating.

“Very comfortable, excellent condition and in a great location”
Reviewed 25 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Situated in a quiet location with plenty amenities on the doorstep. Fantastic scenery surrounds the area. Great if you like the outdoors or just a gentle stroll. The nearby golf course does lovely meals and is child friendly. If you take a trip to nearby Braemar stop to have a browse around the "Knock Gallery" on the way, lovely amber jewellery and paintings. Tigh na Darroch is very clean and with 6 adults and a baby was by no means overcrowded. The garden is great for sitting out or for a BBQ.
