Overlooking the gentle meandering bends of the River Dee where wild red deer roam, this former taxidermist’s workshop and cottage has been completely rebuilt under the ‘Mar Estate Golden Jubilee Project’. After lapsing into dereliction, this magnificently appointed property has been restored to its original 1884 timber construction, taking into account every last detail. Further enhanced by the addition of modern day facilities, it stands as a real gem of a holiday home, amidst spectacular scenery. The village is home to the annual Highland Games, the Braemar Gathering. Games were first held here in the 11th century, when contests were set for the local clans in order to pick the bravest and strongest for Malcolm Canmore’s army. Perth is little over an hour’s drive away, as is the beautiful granite city of Aberdeen. Shops 3 miles.
Living room with superb views. Well-equipped modern fitted kitchen/dining room. Double bedroom. Shower room with toilet.
- Elec, full NSH, bed linen and towels inc
- Natural grassed area overlooking River Dee

13th Comment This was our 2nd visit to Stuffers Cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Looking forward to another visit. Oct 2008.
14th Comment Stuffers cottage must surely be in the most perfect location possible. Where else can can you hope for views of snow capped mountains, red squirrels feeding on the tree outside the cottage for an hour or two and red deer literally passing by the front door. The cottage itself is the perfect two person accommodation. April 2008.
