Tuesday travels. . . Stonefolds Farm, Aberdeenshire


For our stay in Scotland we were based at Stonefolds Farm Cottages  a short drive from Fyvie, in Aberdeenshire.  We stayed in Stonefolds Cottage which is on the right hand side of the photograph.  You can see by the photograph that the weather was not the best when we arrived but the warm welcome by Shirley and Neil made up for the weather.  The cottage was delightful and we were happy that we were going to spend  four weeks based here.Stonefolds Farm CottagesOur younger daughter and son were going to be joining us for a few days while we were here so we needed a cottage that slept four.

This is the view from the kitchen.


It was enjoyable to watch the everyday happenings on the farm.

We explored most of Aberdeenshire and many areas beyond, while we were at Stonefolds but I will post about them later.  We also did a few local walks and I was delighted to find one of the famous “Heiland Coos”

    looks really lovely. I would be happy to spend a month in a cottage in rural Scotland (as long as it has heating and double-paned glass … speaking from experience 🙂 ). I’ll be looking forward to finding out where your exploring took you.

      The cottage was well heated and it also had double glazing – a very cosy cottage. My first exploration will be to the Glen Garioch Distillery.

  2. What a lovely looking place. It’s very interesting watching what goes on in farms, and the addition of cattle to a holiday is generally a very positive thing, in my experience.

      We had such a wonderful time and being on a farm brought back lovely memories of childhood holidays on my uncles’ farms.
