The Hay Loft

Banchory, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Bright and imaginative decor at this rural property with wonderful views. Located in the Cairngorms National Park.


Deep within rural Aberdeenshire, near the Cairngorms National Park you can discover this unusual bijou property for 2-4, the perfect place for couples or friends looking for a tranquil break.

The Hay Loft has a unique upside down design with a double bedroom on the ground floor with private bathroom and a second bedroom with ensuite on the first floor. Also on the first floor is a long series of rooms including a cosy large living/dining area, modern kitchen and landing. From the living room you can enjoy the stunning views over the surrounding fields! The property, like all those at Glen Dye, benefits from striking design colours and unusual pieces of artwork. 

As a guest at The Bothy you also have full access to The Glen Dye Arms, a BYOB pub with roaring log fire, ancient bar and record player. There is also a wood-fired sauna on site you can book!

Locally there is plenty to do, although dragging yourself away from this beautiful property may be difficult! If you chose to venture out be sure to wear your hiking boots as there are a number of beautiful walks in the area or maybe try your hand at canoeing on the River Dye. If you prefer a more sedate way of life then a trip to Craigievar Castle for a guided tour and stroll around the gardens may be more your cup of tea. 

Free wifi. Children and dogs welcome. 

Monday 4 nights and Friday 3 nights or weekly stays from these days.
