Sellers Description*

The resort takes its name from the thickly wooded hill which forms  the backdrop to its unique and picturesque setting.  Ownership of the  estate has passed through a number of hands, commencing with a well  known Dundee family, famous particularly, for its brand of “Marmalade”  among other varieties of conserves, to its present shared interests of  timeshare owners and Hilton International.

The timeshare development began life as a proposed project in the  mind of a successful Aberdeen House Builder, who saw potential value as a  business venture but also appreciated the unique scenic setting which  would be necessary for the success of his other interest which was to  establish the first timeshare resort in his part of the world. Having  been successful in providing high quality well designed homes, he  determined to carry this thinking into any development at  Craigendarroch. So it was from a fairly modest beginning of just over  twenty lodges in 1985/86 that it has developed into a highly successful  ownership of just over one hundred extremely high quality properties,  with Hilton International presently developing the hotel into  individually owned suites. 

Since a much loved Royal Residence is located in the immediate area  and frequented by the Royal Family at least annually, and with the  famous Salmon Fishing River Dee flowing east on its journey to the sea,  the surrounding district has become widely known as “Royal Deeside”.    The Resort itself is approximately a fifty minute drive from Scotland’s  third city, “Aberdeen”, now acknowledged as Europe’s Oil Capital with  the world’s busiest commercial Heliport. The journey to and from the  resort to the city takes one through a number of busy and bustling towns  and villages with the township of Ballater just one mile from the  resort. The city itself has many attractions, with its granite buildings  reflecting a sparkle which is somewhat unique to this virtually  indestructible stone, and giving the name “The Granite City”. It has  become a multi cultural city as a result of the oil industry, adding to  the life and vibrancy of a modern and mainly prosperous city.

The area surrounding the resort widely acknowledged as one of unique  natural beauty, with its mountains, hills and valleys combining scenery  with serenity, a large part of which is now included in the Cairngorm  National Park adding considerably to its wide appeal.  In pursuit of  maintaining the high standards for which the resort has become known,  the country club section caters for the interests and pursuits of the  representative ages frequenting the resort on their visits either as  owners or simply renting one of the lodges. The choices are many and  varied, perhaps one of the highlights is the sense of peace and freedom  which seems to permeate the grounds, providing the incentive to explore  further afield.

When one settles down to consider the amenities of the resort,  the question is where do we begin? For those with an interest in the  monarchy the Royal estate only eight miles from the Resort, is open to  the public at certain times, a visit will explain why it has been, and  is so highly favoured as a Royal Residence. There is a very informative  exhibition situated in the square in Ballater which is well worth a  visit again it enforces the affection the Royal families past and  present had for their Highland Retreat.   There are numerous walks of  varying length and for the more serious and energetic, hills to climb.  The more experienced and suitably attired can tackle the well known  mountain Lochnagar, rising to a height of three thousand feet, one of  the ascent paths is reached from a short drive of 12 miles or so from  the resort. Lochnagar has received added publicity by a book written by  Prince Charles. An alternative to the various climbs is a walk round  Loch Mick, 8/9 miles, again accessed by the same parking facility used  to climb Lochnagar.
