Welcome to the Website for Deeside Cottages located in the picturesque village of Braemar in the Scottish Highlands

In the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, we offer two properties for rental both beautifully positioned in the heart of the village.

Beinn Mcduibh is a 5 bedroomed holiday home positioned in the heart of the village of Braemar, overlooking the River Clunie and ringed by the high mountains beyond. This modern bungalow, recently renovated throughout, is furnished, equipped and decorated to a very high standard to provide a perfect family holiday home, equally perfect for large groups walking or skiing on the mountain or just enjoying some time away together.




Braemar, one of Scotland’s prettiest and most popular villages, hosts the famous Highland Games so loved by the Royal Family. The village and its surrounds are an outdoor lover’s paradise – activities, pastimes and sports cater for everyone, from the adrenalin junkie to the nature lover.   With an elevation of around 1250 feet above sea level, the climate is very Alpine – dry and sunny with crisp, clear nights.  The village is a short stroll away, with its many shops, restaurants and traditional hotels.  There are many countryside walks and trails (for walking or mountain biking) which can be accessed with or without the use of a car.  The quiet roads also afford opportunities for cycling or touring.

Further Afield

Further afield, the whole of the Cairngorms National Park beckons, as do the Castle and Whisky Trails (including Balmoral Castle, a ten minute drive away).  Skiing at Glenshee is just a 15-minute drive, and the Lecht slopes are approximately a 40-minute drive north. For the walking enthusiast, there are some fifty Munros within striking distance, and the area is endowed with superb ski touring and mountaineering opportunities. Braemar Golf Course (reputedly the highest and most dramatically situated course in Scotland) is on your doorstep. Nature lovers will be aware that the BBC programme, Winterwatch, was filmed locally.
