Just 40 minutes drive from Aberdeen airport, on Findrack Estate, you’ll find yourself in the most stunning rural setting – half farmland, half wild & windy moor. Our cosy 3 bedroom cottage, 2 doubles one is ensuite and one twin is available to rent for weeks on end, or just a weekend. We have a gun cabinet and plenty of parking for all your guests. Sporting parties have priority when it comes to booking the cottage – your idyllic home from home for as long as you wish.
Food & Drink
Accommodation is a self-catered affair but cooks can be arranged with prior notice. All major companies (Tesco, The Wine Society etc.) deliver to the cottage address which is extremely helpful. You can help yourself to anything from our fabulous vegetable garden (the garden itself is rather special and open to the public once a year as part of the Scottish Gardens scheme). Something we’re also keen to tell you (which not all estates offer) is that, with prior notice, you can order meat directly from the estate. If you’d like to go out for lunch or dinner there are various options nearby: the Boat Inn, the Potarch Hotel, the Kildrummy Inn and Kildrummy Castle. There is a list of local taxi companies in the cottage.
all ages welcome
Findrack Sporting is very much a family business and you can expect the same sort of polite informality when it comes to our accommodation as with everything we do. We know that if you have young children flexibility is paramount and we will do our best to cater for your needs. With such a variety of things to do we really do welcome all ages, young and old, and can easily arrange nannies for babies and toddlers if necessary. Dogs are welcome and kennels are provided.
