Auld Cummerton is off the beaten track and nestles in the upper reaches of Upper Donside in the Cairngorms National Park.

Originally built in 1760, Carole and Bruce have restored the ruin to a very high standard with pleanty of private parking and wildlife walks from the doorstep. Classified a 5 star B&B by the Scottish Tourist Board.

Less than 45 miles from Aberdeen, we offer a refuge of comfort and tranquillity from where you can explore some of the historic sites and stunning scenery that is this unique corner of Scotland. We are on the unique Castle and Whisky Trails as well as abundant gardens and galleries.

We have two beautiful rooms available. The double room has a magnificent Stuart period 4 poster bed and dressed in authentic period furnishings. The twin bedded room, which can operate as a 6 foot wide double bed, is equally delightful and is stylishly furnished with a beautiful French toile of Louis XVl period.

On arrival, you may take tea and some of Carole's home made scones or shortbread in the drawing room. We have a huge range of books on Scotland and the local area, with lots of marked ordnance survey maps.

Breakfasts are leisurely and taken in the drawing room where you can enjoy all manner of wonderful things such as Scottish bacon, kippers, free range eggs, fresh fruits, home made bread and our own spring water from Cummerton Hill.

Open April - October.
