Stayed here in December. Had a fantastic time. Great location for a skiing holiday or a winter retreat. Just a short walk from Balmoral castle, which looks beautiful in the snow. Will definitely be returning soon.

About the neighbourhood
Attractions: Within the immediate vicinity of Crathie, Balmoral Castle is a popular destination for tourists passing through the area.
