A dream in the woods - Rating 5/5

If you stay with Rebecca you won‘t regret it. Her house is amazing! Our room (the Davan) was spacious, clean and had a great odor. The furniture also looks very nice and everywhere are small details to find. The bed is large and very comfortable. For breakfast you have a variety of options to choose from. What we liked most was the huge amount of different fresh fruits and also the cold meats and cheese platter. The Glendavan house is located at the edge to the woods and also to a smaller lake right around the corner. This makes it a great starting point for some hiking tours. The nearest restaurant is about 6 miles away in Ballater. But choosing this location you should have a car anyways.The price per night is not the cheapest, but you get a lot for what you pay.We highly recommend staying here!

Special place!- Rating 5/5

Such a beautiful house and setting in a quiet location. Rebecca is a fabulous host with a talent for pampering her guests and making them feel very welcome. My husband and I recently spent 13 nights in 12 different very nice B&B’s throughout Scotland. This stay ranked number one with us!

Lovely Stay - Rating 5/5

My husband and I spent three nights at Glendavan House at the end of June, 2019.Rebecca was a most gracious, friendly, and informative host, as well as an excellent cook. The house is everything you might imagine beautiful, spacious, and well maintained. Ask for one of the suites on the main floor if you don’t want to pull suitcases up a 20 step staircase, and would like a sitting area apart from the bedroom. Otherwise, enjoy the lovely view of Caingorm National Park out of the upstairs window of the Davan bedroom.

A lovely stay at Glendavan House. - Rating 5/5

Myself and my partner hugely enjoyed our 3 night stay at Glendavan House. One of the best b&b's I have stayed at. It is located in a peaceful beautiful wooded area near Ballater. The suites are large and comfortable. And our host Rebecca was welcoming and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. And all the small touches such as setting up the fireplace with fresh coal and tinder as well as port and ferrer rocher in the room all made this a great experience. 5 star.

This was the second time we've been in Glendavan and we've promised to return. The reception and treatment of the team during our stay was fantastic, everything was easy and they helped us to take advantage of our days there. The house is deligthful, with fantastic suites and about breakfast, I only can say that my daughters want Glendavan breakfast at home.

Close to paradise - Rating 5/5

What a lovely place to stay. Very warm welcome indluding squirrel and pheasant. Most comfortable room with big bathroom. Many extras to feel at home. And the breakfast! We never have seen such a variety of fresh fruit and so nicely prepared and arranged. Our Muesli was overloaded, because the temptationto taste all the freuits was too big. A pity that we were touring around Scotland and could not have stayed any longer. Best place we have ever visited!Rebecca, thank you very much!Kurt and Monika from Switzerland

The most fantastic hosts - Rating 5/5

I can only say that this is certainly a heaven on earth. The hosts Rebecca and Moira created the most magical atmosphere and brilliant welcome. There was nothing left out,cleanliness, food, and the most beautiful setting imaginable cannot be described, one has to see and feel the whole package. Rebecca gave herself to each guest and made you feel like a million dollars. Nothing was too much trouble. if there was a star rating of one million it would not be enough. Thank you so much.


Oh what a lovely review to receive Mary - thank you so much! It was a pleasure having you both stay with us and I am just delighted that you had such a lovely time (and such lovely weather!) I trust that the rest of your travels were successful and do hope that we are able to welcome you back before too long. Kindest regards Rebecca and Moira
