Our location


Tanar View is situated in the grounds of the restored Dalwhing Mill House on the doorstep of Glen Tanar estate and the Cairngorms National Park.  It is ideally located for fishing on the river Dee (a two minute drive from the Craigendinnie beat), exploring Deeside by bike or road, or ski-ing, walking and biking in the Cairngorm mountains. 

We are two miles from the Glen Tanar ballroom and not far from Coo Cathedral if you are attending a wedding in this beautiful area.  And  we’re just over the river from the Aboyne Gliding Club if you’ve come for a birds eye view of Royal Deeside.

Reached via a 500 metre  tree lined forest track, Tanar View is in a peaceful and private setting yet it is only a two mile drive to the nearest village of Aboyne where there is a pub, coffee shops, an Indian restaurant, fish and chip shop, post office, a community centre with theatre and swimming pool, a selection of shops and a small but well stocked Co-op supermarket. 

In the other direction, you will find the small village of Dinnet which has a local hotel and restaurant with home cooked food as well as an intriguing antique shop.  Ten minutes further west is Ballater, which is awash with lovely shops and good eating places as well as being close to Balmoral, the Royal residence.

Braemar is a popular destination for our guests to visit.  Surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery, this small village has a variety of interesting independent shop and places to eat as well as the impressive Highland Games Centre and the iconic Fife Arms Hotel with its stunning art collection.

Banchory is half an hour away to the east and is a busy little town with plenty of shops including an Orvis for the fishing and shooting enthusiast.

There are a number of lovely towns, villages and rural spots throughout Deeside with lots going on in terms of concerts, festivals and events such as Highland Games depending on the time of year.  And of course, we have castles and whisky distilleries galore close by.

If you want to venture into the city then Aberdeen is about an hour away by car and boasts shopping, restaurants, art galleries, museums and cinemas.
