This self contained upper floor of a former distillery house, built in 1900, provides an ideal base for your holiday in Royal Deeside. Crathie is situated in the heart of the Dee Valley between Braemar and Ballater, on the edge of the Balmoral Estate, summer home to the Royal Family.

In the heart of Royal Deeside, Aspenholm is the perfect place to enjoy the fantastic scenery of the Cairngorm Mountains and National Park.
