Tigh na Geald
Tigh na Geald (pronounced Tie na Geeld) is a traditional Victorian villa set back from the road and surrounded by garden with a view over Aboyne Green to the pine-forested hills on the other bank of the River Dee. It is the family home of Julia and Kit Chambers who welcome guests to stay for bed and breakfast.
Aboyne is an attractive historic village in the heart of Royal Deeside and on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park. It is ideal base for touring, visiting the Castles (eg Balmoral, Craigievar), golf, fishing, walking, cycling, and, notably for gliding enthusiasts, gliding from the popular airfield just outside the village.
Julia has lots of local knowledge - a boon for travellers: the best places to eat, how long it takes to get somewhere and her own recommendations of special places to visit.
