Welcome to Crathie Opportunity Holidays

Crathie Opportunity Holidays aims to surprise and delight its guests - not only with the high standard of design and quality of furnishings but also with the sincere and wholehearted commitment of its staff to their guests comfort and care.

In the restored Manse Courtyard of historic Crathie Kirk are four unique self-catering holiday cottages. Winner of one of VisitScotland's prestigious Thistle Awards in 2004, the cottages offer the opportunity of a holiday in one of Scotland's most stunning locations on the banks of the River Dee with glorious views of the mountain peaks of Lochnagar.

Each cottage has been carefully designed and furnished to create a warm and welcoming home. Equipment and appliances are of the highest standard and the attractive soft furnishings, bedding and linen all add to the sense of arriving somewhere special.

In addition the cottages offer a unique range of features so that disabled people, so often excluded from such holidays, can now enjoy the most relaxing of holidays in wonderful surroundings.

The planning for these cottages focussed on two intensely held principles:

    * The accommodation should be of a standard to match the best in self catering cottages.
    * The cottages should be designed so that there should be no barriers to occupancy by disabled guests.

The buildings have therefore been sensitively restored externally to retain many of the original features of the stables. Internally they have been designed to ensure maximum accessibility and equipped to offer the most extensive range of fixtures and free standing aids to enable disabled guests to experience their holiday with confidence.

Surrounded by an extensive, fenced play area and with the protection of a security gate this facility really is ideal for families with children of all abilities.
