Nestling in the heart of an ancient Highland estate in the Cairngorm National Park, the surrounding hills rising to 2500 feet, this 5-star rated 17th century cottage is in an utterly secluded position with stunning views towards the Grampians, yet it is only 1 1/2 hours from Edinburgh. Since half of our clients either become engaged here or come for their honeymoon, we can claim with justice that this is a very romantic place, well away from the stresses of modern life!
Clover Cottage has been beautifully restored with wood panelling, exposed beams, extra long bed complete with electric blanket and a large wood burning stove, along with every modern amenity, bathrobes and toiletries. You can walk for miles from the doorstep, through a profusion of wild flowers (part of the glen is a wildflower reserve), or along woodland paths to the Fairy Glen, and the high tops. You can arrange to fish on the estate's river and lochs, hire mountain bikes, or just relax in the hot tub, then have a massage while our chef prepares a romantic dinner. We can also do your shopping or laundry, collect you from the airport, book riding on the Balmoral Estate or, in winter, measure you for skis, bring them directly to you and arrange lessons or a guide at Glenshee, 30 minutes away.
There are wonderful views from the bed itself up the glen to the Queen's Estate at Balmoral. Lie there listening to your own Highland burn running through the garden, or sit in the boat watching the Highland ponies as the sun sets over the loch and the herons glide in for the night. The sights and sounds are timeless and very special - birds are plentiful and wild life abounds - red squirrels and deer are frequently seen from the cottage. Golf courses, distilleries, good restaurants and castles are all nearby.
