Welcome to Mar Cottage

This detached, stone-built, traditional cottage stands in a fabulous location in Braemar overlooking the World famous Highland Games Park with picturesque view to the mountains. The village is 5 minutes’ walk with plenty of amenities and charm. This tranquil setting is a great base from which to explore the mountains (hill climbing, biking trails and skiing), salmon and trout fishing, golfing (at the highest golf course in the UK) and the beautiful walkways of the Balmoral and Mar Estates are within a short drive. (WIFI available throughout the house.)

Mar Cottage - is on a very quiet road, minutes from the duck pond and the walking trails to Morrone, but within 5 minutes’ walk down to the village with a new Co-op for amenities, a bank, butcher, two hotels, restaurants and coffee shops.

The house has three bedrooms (one double and a twin upstairs) with a new bathroom (shower over bath), and a twin room downstairs. The pretty, open-plan, kitchen/dining room has been recently refurbished throughout with modern appliances (electric fan oven, hob and extractor, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave and coffee machine). There is a sunny lounge (with dual views to the mountains) with comfortable sofas, open fireplace, TV with Freeview and DVD player. Along with the open fire, there are storage heaters in the downstairs rooms and hallway and the bedrooms have plug-in heaters, if required. Mar Cottage has a small summer house (to store golf clubs, etc) and there is a small BBQ for use in the large garden. Towels are not provided as we find most people prefer to bring their own.


The Braemar Golf Club a stone's throw away is in a beautiful setting – often with deer roaming across the course. The Tourist Information Centre, in the village, is full of maps and they will assist you to discover the mountains, walkways and waterfalls, which surround Braemar.
