Riverside Cottage was one of Ballater's earliest buildings and by the time Karl first visited it it had gone to ruin. It has now been comprehensively but sympathetically renovated. The cottage retains its country cottage aesthetic while benefiting from a high level finish as well as modern insulation, underfloor heating and a Smallbone integrated kitchen. The floor coverings are either wool carpets or slate, all internal and external doors are solid oak, as is the staircase. A wood burning stove has also been added as a secondary source of heat and a great focus for the lounge, particularly in poor weather. The ground floor includes: Kitchen: A well equipped kitchen with spacious cupboards and a large fridge freezer. Lounge: A cosy lounge with wood burning stove, TV and two large comfort...Riverside Cottage was one of Ballater's earliest buildings and by the time Karl first visited it it had gone to ruin.
