There could be no doubt when waking up at this place: you are in Scotland for sure! After a warm welcome from Elizabeth and Peter we had a wonderful stay at their place. A breakfast awaited us with fresh eggs, produced by their own chickens. Our tidy room was very nice to sleep in, the bathroom clean with a good shower and the breakfast is presented in a private kitchen. On top of that all beautiful landscapes en very quite.

Elizabeth's place was very beautifull, clean and in the middle of nowhere which was exact what we were looking for! Had a great chat, welcome cake with tea!

Elizabeth and her husband´s place was the best experience I ever had on airbnb. The location was great for exploring Cairngorms, as long as you have a car. And the room was great and private. Elizabeths was so great and went out of her way to help us out. The breakfast was really good too. Basically there is nothing bad to say about this stay. Would highly recommend this place to others looking to explore the Cairngorms. Hope to come back. :)

Elizabeth's an incredibly thoughtful, reliable and a sincere host. She was quick in responding and understood our needs. I absolutely love the room we stayed in especially seeing the morning view and enjoyed learning about the farmhouse renovation progress; everything's been tastefully and considerately planned and executed. All the attention to detail makes it a really beautiful family home and a warm place. Although we arrived later in the evening, she had a cake ready waiting and made us hot drinks (and a handwritten welcome sign which we only noticed in the morning light). Elizabeth is one of those wonderful people whom you met for the time but felt like you've known them forever as they made you feel right at home. She made a scrummy breakfast with fresh eggs from her hens. It was a pleasure to meet her kind husband, the lovely dogs and the chickens! We apologise for overstaying, it was rather hard to leave :) Thank you so much and we hope to be back inshaAllah :)) Much love from Aisyah and Elena from Malaysia xxx

What a wonderful place!!! 5 stars could not express this outstanding experience to stay at Elisabeths place. You book in at a high grade Design B&B with a fancy private room incl. your private rainshower bathroom. The view from the bedroom to lovely river Don is stunning. The area is beautiful and great places like Breamar or Balmoral in an easy reach. Even if you are just walk along the river and stroll around the little villages around, you will be happy to return to Riverbank B&B at the end of the day. Elisabeth is an awesome and sweet host and her breakfast is more than mouthwatering. Eggs are delivered by the happy chicken right from the beautiful garden. Highly, highly recommended! Thanks so much Elisabeth and Peter for this unforgetable stay!

Living in the Cairngorms National Park is a privilege it's the most beautiful place I have had the pleasure to live in. I adore my farmhouse & my garden.
I'm an outdoors girl walk for pleasure with my dogs & hubby, feed my spoilt rotten hens & enjoy the beauty of our little piece of Scotland.
