Drumniall Self Catering


Welcome to ‘Drumniall’, a traditional stone-built early 19th Century two-bedroom cottage, located on the working farm of Upper Ruthven (pronounced ‘Rivan’), in the Highlands of Scotland, near Tarland, Aberdeenshire. The Property has recently been renovated and modernised to a high standard, with great emphasis placed on retaining as much of its vernacular character as possible, with extensive use of recycled materials throughout, particularly pitch-pine timberwork and joinery.

Drumniall is now available as a very well appointed and comfortable, self-catering holiday cottage. Facing south, and with magnificent views across Royal Deeside, it is ideally placed as a base for enjoying the many activities and experiences available in the area.
