The Estate offers top quality sport including driven and walked up grouse shooting, red deer stalking for two rifles, roe stalking, fallow stalking and salmon fishing on the River Dee.

Approached via a long private wooded drive the house sits in a stunning position overlooking Deeside surrounded by its well kept gardens. The house is in very good decorative order whilst retaining its homely ‘feel’ and it lends itself perfectly to both intimate groups and grand entertaining. The impressive Reception Hall welcomes guests and provides the hub of the house with its majestic fireplace. The impressive Drawing Room is comfortably appointed and well laid out for guests to enjoy a relaxing evening.  The stunning Dining Room provides seating for 20 guests and it’s roaring fire creates a splendid atmosphere.  The magnificent Games Room with two open fires provides a wonderful space for less formal entertaining and relaxation and includes a full sized billiard table and grand piano.  There is also table football, table tennis and a sound system available for guests to use. There is also a playroom, drying room and well equipped Kitchen.

Upstairs there are a range of individually designed bedrooms offering single, twin and double beds to comfortably accommodate a party of up to 20. Many of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with wonderfully deep baths.

While the house exudes a traditional charm it is still equipped with modern necessities such as:

  • Digital TVs
  • DVD players
  • Wireless Broadband
  • MP3 compatible stereos.

The house provides ideal Group Accommodation in a Large Holiday Home perfectly situated to explore the delights of Royal Deeside. Whilst being ideal for large groups the House of Glenmuick also provides a cosy and luxurious getaway for smaller groups.

Just across the river from Glenmuick is the charming town of Ballater which has a wide range of shops to cater for all of your requirements throughout your stay.

For Larger Parties

If guests wish to increase their party to exceed more than 20 guests then the cost will be £500 per person per week including VAT up to a maximum of 26 guests at any one time staying in the main house.

An estate cottage can be taken once the house has reached maximum capacity of 26 (based on 2 sharing). If a cottage is also taken then this will bring the total to 30 guests which is the absolute maximum. A further cottage will only be allowed to be taken if this is required for staff that will be working in the house and not using the staff bedrooms. It has been agreed that guests staying in a cottage but will be using the facilities of the main house will be charged a premium of £250 including VAT per person per week on top of the nightly cottage rate.

We say...

The House of Glenmuick with its 14,000 acres is one of the great sporting estates of Royal Deeside. The house has a real charm and great atmosphere and is perfect for that special week, sporting holiday or celebration.

You say...

This was our fourth year at Glenmuick with our family and the experience is still one of the best holidays that the children enjoy. Our grandchildren of whom there are eleven vary in age from three to sixteen and they all enjoy different parts of the holiday. As always the premises and the staff are excellent.

Sporting

The estate extends to some 14,000 acres with it’s own stalking, salmon fishing and grouse shooting. There are a host of other activities available in the area including golf and pony trekking.

Salmon Fishing
The Glenmuick Beat of the River Dee lies at the centre of Ballater, Aberdeenshire and consists of around 2 miles of fishing on the right bank of the river. There are 13 named pools with reasonable access. Most can be reached by car but a 4 x 4 vehicle is an advantage. The beat is large enough to give variety and hence is fishable in some part at most heights of water. Two rods may fish the water at any one time but on different pools. Some wading is needed in order to make the best use of the water and the Dee Code of ‘catch and release’ is in operation for salmon although alternate seatrout may be kept. There is a fishing hut overlooking the main pools.

Addtional fishing for up to 8 rods is available on Monaltrie and Lower Invercauld, subject to availability.

Stalking
There are two stalking beats, enabling two stalking parties to go to the hill per day.

The mighty summit of Lochnagar, an Impressive 3800 ft mountain forms a breathtaking backdrop.

Shooting
Both walked up and driven grouse shooting days are available at Glenmuick and due to the wild nature of the birds provide some of the most challenging shooting in the world. Grouse days are subject to availability and numbers.

Testimonials

We had a great time at Glenmuick and it was lovely to return after a couple of years away. We would very much like to book the same week in 2013. All was fine and i cannot say enough good things about Fern...she is a superstar! She gets on with the job in hand and always has a smile. Cook, Suzie Mackenzie-Smith and her helper Elizabeth were brilliant as well. Thanks also to Ab and his team, they produced two excellent walked up grouse days and my house guests and family were pretty accurate with the stags and roe deer. Nothing but praise for the team!

This was our fourth year at Glen Muick with our family and the experience is still one of the best holidays that the children enjoy. Our grandchildren of whom there are eleven vary in age from three to sixteen and they all enjoy different parts of the holiday. I have been in touch with George concerning next year and if the dates can be made to fit then we shall visit again. As always the premises and the staff are excellent.

Dear George, I wanted to let you know how much we ADORED the House of Glenmuick. We had the most memorable week and birthday celebrations, and yes indeed, the balmy weather helped make everything that much more special. You were spot on, the house is a very unique place, and we felt totally at home there. Thank you also for everything you did to oil the wheels: the fishing, stalking and shooting were the icing on our cake, and very much appreciated! The chef you organised, namely Pip, is a GEM of the first order! We - as well as our guests - thought he was fantastic. Meanwhile, all the very best, and thank you once again. Kate. I can't add much more to what Kate has said other than saying it was all ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! We had such a fantastic time and are already thinking hard for an excuse to go back soon! Thank you so much once again. Best wishes Tim p.s. Pip certainly was a star. He really did make the stay thoroughly memorable
