Fodor's Expert Review Ivy Cottage

Cluniebank Rd., Braemar, Aberdeenshire, AB35 5ZP, Scotland

Everything at this 19th-century inn, from the silky bedding to the bright bathroom fittings, is of the highest standard and done with good taste. It's set in a peaceful garden, and facilities for hikers and bikers include gear storage, laundry, and drying room. Evening meals can be arranged in advance, and no corkage is charged for those who bring their own booze. A self-catering studio and cottage are also available.
