When it comes to castles, Aberdeenshire is the place to visit as there are understood to be over 300 in total and there is simply no other county in the UK with more per square mile. Particularly close by is the incredible Dunnottar Castle being an iconic ruin perched on a headland with dramatic sheer cliffs on all sides. Also within a short drive is the Crathes Castle & Drum Castle, Gardens & Estate.
Banchory is also only 13 miles to the West which is the gateway to the world renowned Royal Deeside where both Balmoral Castle & Braemar lie. There are a number of renowned cycle routes available from the site location. Of particular note, the 41 mile-long Deeside Way which runs from the city centre through Royal Deeside.
The River Dee is one of the most famous and beautiful salmon rivers in Scotland. It rises from two sources in Mar Forest, just below 4000 feet in the Cairngorm Mountains and drains an area of over 800 square miles. The river flows through Royal Deeside where there is an abundance of spawning ground and nursery areas. It continues through a variety of Highland and Lowland Scenery for over ninety miles before reaching the North Sea in Aberdeen.
With around 55 golf courses and claiming two of the top 10 oldest courses in the world, Aberdeenshire is a golfing paradise with a variety of championship, traditional links and parkland courses. These holiday lodges would be a great base for keen golfers given that three popular golf courses are all very close by including Stonehaven Golf Club, 8 miles, and both Peterculter Golf Club and the extremely popular Royal Deeside Gold Club are both only a 15 minute drive away. Slightly further afield, yet easily accessed by the impending new AWPR, you will find the highly renowned Royal Aberdeen Golf Club who were hosts to the Scottish Open in 2014 and, Aberdeenshires newest golf course, Trump International Golf Links. The course is set against the dramatic backdrop of miles of coastal views and is being enjoyed by keen golfers from across the world.
Aberdeen City is some 10 miles, and provides all the leisure, recreational and entertainment facilities expected from the oil capital of Europe. It also provides good transport links with a mainline railway station, only 10 miles away, and is host to an airport providing both domestic and international flights. The soon to be completed AWPR, is located a short drive away giving very easy access to both the North & South of the city and in particular to Aberdeen International Airport, which will be even quicker than the current 35 minute travelling distance.
The proposed three lodges stand together within a beautiful countryside location yet a comfortable distance apart to provide a good degree of privacy. All the lodges enjoy a thoughtful contemporary design with open outlooks over the grounds and countryside beyond. The living space is large and open plan, whilst all three double bedrooms have en-suite facilities. This is an excellent opportunity to create a purpose built facility with executive accommodation for tourists and holiday makers, all in an area with endless attractions and country sporting opportunities.
All 3 lodges are identical in layout and are as follows:
Entrance hall, open plan lounge, kitchen & dining room opening out to a private terrace. Double bedroom 1 also opening out to the private terrace and ensuite shower room. Double bedroom 2 with ensuite bathroom and finally double bedroom 3 also with an ensuite shower room.
All 3 lodges have access to a gym, sauna and steam room suite
The lodges are built to housing standards.
Planning permission was granted by Aberdeenshire Council on 15th September 2014 and full details can be obtained from their website or by contacting the selling agent. The planning permission has been crystallised with the formation of the main entrance to the development site.
Mains water is located adjacent to site, mains electricity is on site.
