Overview

Welcome to the land of Macbeth and literally miles and miles of beautiful coastline to explore with numerous caves and ruins of castles providing homes for a wide range of wildlife.

Set in deep countryside, within private grounds of 3/4 acre with stunning 360 degree picturesque views over the Aberdeenshire countryside. This stunning Log Cabin lies on the doorstep of the lovely picturesque coastal village of Gardenstown and Pennan made famous for the film with Bert Lancaster 'The Local Hero' This quality Log Cabin accommodation also has a bed settee which will allows a further two people to be accommodated. There is a burn running through the grounds of the Log Cabin therefore no children under the age of 12 are permitted for safety reasons.

The location offers a peaceful countryside location with fantastic views and easy access to multiples of golf courses, shooting, fishing, shopping, pony trekking, historic buildings, castles and whisky distilleries (The Whisky Trail)

Apart from the film local hero. In May 2007, a TV series titled The Baron was filmed in and around the village. The series featured three celebrities Malcolm McLaren, Mike Reid and Suzanne Shaw competing to be elected "Baron of Troup". During the filming, McLaren was thrown out of the village for unruly behaviour, leaving Reid and Shaw to contest the final election, which was won by Reid. The series was due to be shown on the network in August 2007; however due to Reid's death, transmission of the series was delayed until April 2008. Before his death, Reid had expressed a wish to have a new community centre built in the village; a number of donations have since been secured from his family and others, and this is likely to go ahead in the near future. Mike's widow, Shirley, retains the title "Baroness of Troup", which is hereditary.

All in all this accommodation has it all and if you are looking for total peace and quiet, then look no further.
