Morrone is a beautiful highland house standing in its own secluded sunny garden of 1/2 acre with easy access ( about 7 mins walk ) to the village of Braemar in the Scottish Highlands. It faces due south and has double glazed windows looking out on magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. Walks lead directly from our private back gate to the moors and hills, or down to the river Dee. Close by are Balmoral Castle, Ballater and, of course, the Cairngorms. Braemar is excellently situated as a base for hill walking, golf ( 18-hole golf course), touring, skiing, fishing or simply a peaceful holiday at any time of the year.

Dancers at the Braemar Gathering

The award winning village of Braemar, with a population of approximately 500 is world famous for its Highland Gathering.Braemar lies near the junction of the Rivers Dee and Clunie at 1100 feet, surrounded by magnificent scenery, through which there are wonderful walks. The climate is good, although conditions can be severe in winter. Summer is often hot and dry and it is also often fine in autumn when the colours are most beautiful. The tops of the high Cairngorms can be directly seen from Morrone and you walk out onto the moor from our private back gate! Often these tops carry snow well into the summer. Braemar holds the record for the lowest temperature recorded in Britain in recent years -27.8 C. There is skiing in nearby Glenshee and relaxed golf on the beautifully picturesque 18 hole Braemar golf course.
