Mill Cottage

Toggle location map

Immediately adjacent to the River Dee, close to Aboyne and in the heart of Royal Deeside, Mill Cottage is a self-catering property that is an ideal base for fishing/walking/golf/nature or bird watching holidays.

The stone built cottage boasts spectacular views of the river against a stunning rural backdrop and has been traditionally furnished inside to ensure guests feel comfortable at the end of the day. Mill Cottage comprises a well-equipped kitchen, two cosy twin bedrooms and a large sitting/dining room, where guests can enjoy the warmth of the wood-burning stove whilst taking in the views of the river from the sit-in window. Central heating and an upgraded hot water tank have recently been installed to add to guest comfort.

Outside the old mill wheel adds an authentic touch to this eponymous property. The lower ground floor provides a large rod room steeped in fishing history which easily doubles as a lunch room with the close proximity of a small kitchen/cloakroom area. This is perfect for those days where you want to kick off your muddy boots and grab a quick bite to eat before heading back out to further explore beautiful Aberdeenshire.

Royal Deeside is a fantastic area to visit: picturesque landscapes and the famous Balmoral Castle nearby make it a desirable location for all holiday-makers. Mill Cottage serves as an excellent base for hikers and cyclists, with a local company offering to provide hire bikes right to the door of the cottage. The area around the River Dee is rich with wildlife – deer, birds and squirrels are often seen on the Estate. Aboyne itself is a lovely little town worth visiting and it also has an excellent golf course. For those who like a dram you can explore the Malt Whisky Trail – many of the distilleries offer guided tours and you can see how these fine malts are produced.

Aberdeenshire is also well-known for its castles, so make your way around the Castle Trail to see these beautiful pieces of history in person.

Fishing on the River Dee can be arranged by the Estate Manager – please contact Mill Cottage directly for details.
