Cottage of the Week – Skene House Cottage

A695869

Skene House Cottage. Property ref: 29020

Not only does this unique holiday property form an annexe of the stunning Skene Castle (a privately owned property in peaceful seclusion, west of Aberdeen) but it’s also part of the cottages4you Green Scheme, which promotes properties that offer environmentally friendly features!

We’ve established our Green Cottages scheme by identifying holiday cottages where the owners have taken extra steps to be kinder to the environment whilst remaining completely warm and comfortable. This includes looking at the impact on the environment of each cottage with regards to energy, pollution, information, water, wildlife and landscape. Property owners may also provide information about local facilities and car-free days out whilst we provide practical advice on how to make small improvements for a greener future.

We think you’ll agree that whilst Skene House offers a wonderfully ‘green’ holiday experience, no compromises have been made in offering complete comfort, warmth and relaxation for holidaymakers. Of course, the best way would be to find out for yourself! Find more info and make a booking on the property listing on cottages4you. Find more info on The Green Scheme.
