The Cottage location is very lucky to be surrounded by hundreds of walks from minutes to hours in length.
Our favourite local walks are Corse Hill, Mill Maud and Craiglich, which are on our doorstep and offer superb views, as well as the walks around Craigievar Castle, only 5 minutes drive away.

Glen Tanar and Loch Kinord are our other favourite walks, the latter is also home to Burn O’ Vat, both less than 30 minutes away.

Lochnagar and Loch Muick are incredible, unspoiled places to visit.
Banchory and the surrounding area has a lot of walks many of which are listed on Visit Banchory.
Guided hill walking is available from Hillgoers.
