This family run bed and breakfast is located in the foothills of the Cairgorm Mountains in Braemar, Aberdeenshire. When visiting us guests can take advantage of our ideal location and setting; from the house you can appreciate the breathtaking views of the Highlands and enjoy the old silver birch and wildlife surrounding the house and in the gardens.
When staying at Schiehallion Guest House you will find our rooms to be very comfortable and newly decorated. All are en suite, apart from one of our twin rooms which is adjacent to a bathroom with shower. Feel right at home with our hospitality trays provided in every room as well as magazines, and packs with information on local attractions.
Our front bedrooms face east and catch the early morning sunshine with our rear bedrooms offering lovely views over the Grampian Mountains.
Our west-facing bedrooms also enjoy mountain views and benefit from the sun during the afternoon and into the evening.
Each day begins with a Full Scottish Breakfast in the dining room which includes starters of a selection of cereals and porridge, fruit, and yoghurt followed by bacon, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans, poached or scrambled eggs, toast, jams, marmalade, and honey. Vegetarian breakfasts can be arranged.
After a day exploring the local countryside, you can retreat to the house’s large comfortable lounge and relax in front of the log fire with a book, a game from our selection or watch the television.
Single occupancy stays are welcome and all our rates include our delicious breakfast. Dogs are welcome at an additional charge of £5.
