Cairnton Cottages

Superb Farm Cottages

An idylic countryside break

Amazing Stay! Can't recommend enough!

Stayed for 2 fabulous weeks in The Byre. Was all ready for us on arrival with fresh hot tub all clean and tidy. Farmer Ken had a great selection of Aberdeen Angus steaks and pies and other meals available in the amply well stocked farm shop. Will definitely be booking another week or two later in the year. Fab place, 10/10

Back to nature on a traditional farm

Wake up to the sounds of the countryside in our luxurious farm stay cottages. Tastefully renovated from traditional 19th century farm buildings, our three properties are located within the central courtyard of a small and friendly family run farm, are powered by an on-farm wind turbine and have a biomass boiler for heat and hot water.  

All the comfort of home

Offering a peaceful rural escape with all the amenities of a modern home away from home, The Bothy, The Byre and The Stables have been upgraded to a high standard with your comfort as a priority. Spacious and inviting, with underfloor heating throughout and free wifi, you’ll be able to relax and recharge while overlooking green pastures and rolling hills.

Located on stunning Royal Deeside

With spectacular views across the Dee Valley and a wealth of outdoor pursuits on the doorstep, Cairnton Farm Cottages is located within a very special corner of the world. Ancient castles, majestic mountains, the mighty River Dee and an abundance of quality food and drink makes Royal Deeside a must-see visitor destination for all.  

We recently had our 4th stay at Cairnton Farm Cottages and our most recent visit was as fantastic as the previous ones. Our kids love playing with Skye and Boo, the resident Labradors and seeing the other farm animals. The Bothy is lovely and cosy in autumn and winter due to the underfloor heating and log burner and the surrounding area is perfect for outdoor activities such as cycling and hillwalking.


We stayed at The Stables over the May Bank Holiday weekend and couldn’t ask for a better weekend. Ken and Margaret have a gorgeous set up here, the house is lovely and spacious. The fire is ready for lighting and so cosy. The hot tub is brilliant for relaxing in after a day quad biking at the local Deeside Activity Park. Can’t ask for a better stay. Will be back and will recommend to friends and family.


Cosy and welcoming! Underfloor heating, log burner filled for us arriving, fab hot tub ready for us! Skye and Boo the labs were adorable! At the door every morning for cuddles. Got up close to the animals, saw a calf the day it was born! Ken the farmer! What a guy! Will be back as soon as there’s availability.


Lovely well equipped cottage with spectacular views. The cottage itself was very cosy with underfloor heating and 2 fireplaces. Our kids enjoyed seeing all the animals and playing with games/jigsaws left in The Bothy, while my husband and I enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. Lots of walks nearby to suit all. We can also highly recommend the steak pie, lasagne and steak from the local farm shop.


We had 5 nights in The Bothy. It’s quite remote on a working farm but the location and view is wonderful. We had sun on the deck every day. Use of a BBQ and hot tub was great. The cottage is a decent size, good shower and comfy bed.


Just spend an amazing week at The Bothy. From the moment we walked in everything was wow. The view from the dining room, the decked out hot tub, the location, the cows and horses and everything. Argh, it was all just lovely!! Farmer Ken and his gorgeous doggos in tow made sure we were utterly and completely happy in our little cottage. Thanks everyone at Cairnton Farm!!


Just back from a stay in The Stables with family and thoroughly enjoyed our short break. The location and cottage were perfect for our family. The under floor heating, log burner and of course the hot tub were a welcome addition after a day sledging after being snowed in unexpectedly! We loved the location of these cottages, set up in the hills with lovely views. Enjoyed having a wee walk down to see the cows on the farm. Highly recommend these cottages for a quiet break.
