Location

Explore Royal Deeside and the Natural Beauty of The Cairngorms.

Birchwood is the perfect location for enjoying all sorts of activities within the Cairngorm National Park. For the keen Munroist, Birchwood is a great base for setting forth into one of Scotland's great mountain wilderness areas. Ben Macdui, Ben Avon, Lochnagar, Cairn Toul, Devil’s Point, to name but a few of the area’s iconic Munros, are all within reach.

With wonderful opportunities for the keen landscape photographer, this area has it all. The wonderful ever-changing light and magnificent scenery is a photographer’s delight.

Walking.

Short walks from the Cottage door to lengthy treks in the Cairngorm hills.

Golf

Braemar has an 18 hole Golf Course ( the highest in Scotland) in a marvellous setting, a challenge without being too demanding.

Skiing.

Glenshee Ski Centre is a short 8 mile drive from Birchwood Cottage. The Lecht Ski Centre is further afield but still within an hours drive.

Castles

Braemar Castle, the recently restored site of Kindrochit and Balmoral Castle are all nearby. Further East along the Dee Valley we have the National Trust Castle properties of Crathes and Drum.

Braemar

A good variety of Gift Shops and Cafés. A Post Office, Pharmacy, Convenience Store, Butcher, Outdoor Equipment, Ski Hire and Bike Hire are all within a 10 minute walk.

Ballater

17 miles away we have the vibrant tourist town of Ballater on Royal Deeside.
