We loved our stay at The Castle Stables. Cosy accommodation in a beautiful location. The kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were very comfy, and the grounds were lovely to walk around. It was also a great location from which to do a day trip to Stonehaven.

The pictures barely do this place justice. What a treat our stay here was! Teresa was very friendly and so easy to cummicate with - we checked in without a hitch. The apartment is decorated so nicely and has all the modern conveniences, while maintaining an air of days gone by. If you are planning a trip to the Aberdeen area, stay here - you'll love it!

We loved our apartment at The Castles Stables and the surrounding grounds are idyllic. We had a map in hand, and therefore had no trouble locating the Castle. WiFi worked well. The accommodations were excellent and everything was perfect for our stay. We especially loved the nature and wildlife of the castle grounds. The old mature plantings of the estate are well worth seeing. A wonderful respite for us!

The place is incredible specially if you like peaceful walks in the nature and enjoying the sky at night. Also the sunsets and sunrises can be awesome to see. The only difficulty I had was finding the place itself. The place itself was very well equipped and any question I had was promptly answered by the host.

To be fair, the description of this place is 100% accurate. Coming from America and driving up from London, my wife was looking for a authentic "Castle" experience. She was sadly disappointed that it was an ordinary hideaway. Here's what they also don't tell you. Because it's so secluded, and they don't provide any provisions, we had to drive far away to stock up. This is not a Bed aNd Breakfast (The second B is not included) The route to get to this place is narrow and difficult to navigate, especially during the night. Also, as foreigners, and with no one there to explain the appliances and switched, it took us a while to get settled and comfortable.

Thank you Edgar for your review. If you were looking for a break with a difference, away from the busy areas but in fantastic scenery, set in a peaceful location in the heart of a forest, this place was for you. Trust you had a great holiday in The Castle Stables,enjoyed exploring Drumtochty Castle, the pond and the forest walks, Fettercairn Distillery, Dunnottar Castle, Drum Castle, Crathes Castle and Garden, Edzell Castle And Garden and more. The Castle Stables is a Self Catering accommodation. As such, we are offering facilities for people to cook their own meals and have no pretensions to be a B&B. The closest shops and restaurants are in Auchenblae village, 2.2 miles away. Very best wishes from Scotland from Teresa

Just finished up a week at the Stables. It was relaxing and quiet. There is a little stream that runs along the property that is the epitome of a "babbling brook". The closest village is Auchenblae but there is nothing really there (not even a pub), you have to drive to Stonehaven for stores, pubs, restaurants. The main reason we chose the Stables was the quietness and that's what we got, it was perfect and is in walking distance to a very cool forest hike trail. The inside was well appointed, with the kitchen having everything needed and more. We cooked a lot, which was fun. The only minor downside is that the rooms are weirdly separated, lots of doors and one small hallway. But this is the nature or renovating an old building like this, you don't get the modern open floorplan. But we knew this up front because the pictures are 100% accurate. Not a big deal for us but if you like open spaces consider one of the other apartments here at the stables, we took a peek through the window and saw a cool one with a fireplace.

Thank you Kezia for your nice review. It was a pleasure to host you. I am glad that you liked the Castle Stable, enjoyed the walks and saw the pheasants. Sometimes you can also see deer. Great that you visited Stonehaven with its beautiful old harbor and the variety of pubs and restaurants. I hope you had a chance to visit Dunnottar Castle. The house with the fireplace is owned by Drumtochty Castle and it is rented only for special events like weddings.

The host was personable and gave us all the information about the place but also shared her knowledge of the area and the places we were going onto visit. This is such a tranquil, unique place that gave us respite from a busy, yet adventurous holiday itinerary. It filled us all with its beauty.
