A granite house dating back to 1886 that has been named after a steamship by its Purser when he retired from the sea faring activities.
Built of local granite in 1886, the house was named after a steamship by its Purser when he retired from the sea. There is a peaceful lounge and dining room overlooking the front flower garden and lawn for guests to enjoy. Located in Ballater, Aberdeenshire. Ballater has changed very little since Queen Victoria regularly spent so much time in her favourite castle at Balmoral. The village is ideally placed for walking in the Cairngorm Mountains, a peaceful drive around the Castle Trail, or a visit to Lochnagar Distillery or the Whisky trail beyond. Ballater Golf Club is within easy distance and famous courses at Carnoustie and St. Andrews are only a scenic drive from the hotel. The hotel is situated 64.3 km west of Aberdeen on the A93. The hotel is on the Braemar road 228 metres from the tourist office on the right hand side. A sign is evident under the tree in the garden. There are a selection of rooms, all excellent quality, with tea and coffee, video and satellite TV, and all are non-smoking. Most rooms have king size beds, but all have en-suite facilities and are beautifully furnished.
