Perfectly located for the ultimate escape

Sweet Donside Cabins and Sweetheart Cottage are situated in Strathdon, in a remote area of the beautiful Cairngorms National Park. We’re next to the village of Bellabeg, so you’ll be surrounded by romantic beauty and knee-deep in history throughout your holiday. Plus, our central location means there are lots of visitor attractions all less than an hour away by car. So there’s plenty to see and do when you come and stay. You can go on whisky trails galore, visit Pictish stones, see an abundance of wildlife and choose from a fantastic selection of outdoor sports (including skiing). We hope to see you soon!
