This year we rented two self-catering houses in Ballater, Aberdeenshire. This one, called ‘Sydney Cottage’, was very near the River Dee, and we enjoyed walks along the river to the golf course. In the garden was a large table - big enough for everyone (nearly) to have a meal together.

Can’t have a holiday without good transport. The minibus was the best we’ve had yet; a new 15-seat Ford Transit.

The other cottage was called ‘Sykes Cottage’ and was in School Lane, about 8 minutes walk from Sydney Cottage. This one was near the chip shop and the railway museum. It had a lovely garden and excellent facilities
