Self-catering holiday accommodation in the heart of royal deeside


The best of Scotland's Highland Games (Aboyne, Braemar, Lonach and Ballater) are all within half an hour's drive. The local whisky distillery (Royal Lochnagar) welcomes visitors as do a wealth of old castles, including Balmoral Castle which is less than 1 mile across the river, and Braemar Castle (8 miles). There are also many beautiful gardens to visit in the area.

As well as fishing and shooting over the Invercauld, Balmoral and Mar Estates, the area is perfect for hillwalkers, mountain climbers and mountain bikers. During the winter, sports enthusiasts are able to take advantage of the cottage's close proximity to the Lecht Ski Centre and Glenshee Ski Centre, both of which are less than half an hour's drive away.

Next to Knock Cottage is the Knock Gallery which shows the work of modern Central European and Scottish artists. It always has a lively, colourful and diverse collection of handsomely framed oil paintings, acrylics, etchings and engravings, available at a wide variety of prices. In addition, the gallery has an extensive collection of the work of the best Polish and Lithuanian silversmiths working with Baltic amber to produce unique pieces of jewellery.
