Dogs at Glenkindie

We know that dogs are a part of the family too and we want to make sure that everyone enjoys their stay. So in addition to your own welcome hamper, your pooch will receive a doggy basket too. It includes a dog blanket, dog bowls with a mat to put them onto, dog treats and poo bags. That will save you some room in the car for your journey here. With walks straight from the door, your four-legged family member will love it here!

We do have a few rules:

  • Dogs are not permitted upstairs or in any bedrooms in the properties.
  • Dogs are not allowed on any of the furniture.
  • Dogs must not be left unattended in any of the properties unless it is crated. Dog crates are available to hire if required.
  • Your dog must be kept on a lead around the agricultural estate to protect both your dog and the local wildlife.
  • All of our cottages have enclosed areas for dogs. However, Tornahatnach & Brae Morlich both have stock fencing which smaller dogs may be able to go under. So we ask that dogs are supervised and not left unattended in the gardens. Please use a lead if in any doubt as there may be livestock in the surrounding fields. Fencing height is standard, around waist height so they don’t obscure the views from the gardens.
  • Please clean up after your dog(s) using the poo bags provided. Dog waste can be disposed of in the general outdoor waste bins. Gardeners routinely visit the cottages to maintain the grass etc.

Why guests love it here

We are idyllically located on the very edge of The Cairngorms, where five of Scotland’s highest mountains lie. So adventurers can explore the fantastic walks, hikes, mountain-bike trails and nearby ski resorts.


It is a haven for wildlife here. So during your holiday you could well see some deer, red squirrels and otters. Maybe even a golden eagle too if you’re lucky.


There are magical ancient forests to stroll through, full of legends and folklore to unveil. Whilst history and royal enthusiasts love visiting the regal landmarks dotted throughout Royal Deeside. They include Balmoral Castle and the Royal Lochnagar Distillery as well as several National Trust for Scotland properties.


If you’re staying here in late summer, the world-famous Braemar Gathering and Highland Games are definitely one to add to your list. Then there’s a fair few whisky trails too. So plenty of experiences to be had throughout the year.
