About Cairngorms Estate

Discover Cairngorms Estate, a 17th-century private mansion on an 18-acre estate, previously owned by Sir Billy Connolly. 

This highland retreat is located within Cairngorms National Park, close to Balmoral and on the doorstep of Strathdon, home of the famous Highland Games. While you are right to associate this Baronial-style property with outdoor pursuits such as fly-fishing and 4x4 activities, you are also within the vicinity of the local ski resorts, should you wish to escape the secluded woodlands and opt for a more wintery holiday. 

Allow yourself to be truly spoilt, with a butler, chef and house manager on-hand to ensure you can spend more time making memories with those you love. You needn’t worry on who will be coming with you on this five-star holiday either, as there are 12 large, en-suite bedrooms to choose from. 

To its credit, Cairngorms Estate comes with Positive Luxury membership and is Butterfly Mark certified – an internationally recognised certification stating commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.

Effortlessly romantic, elegant and proud, Cairngorms Estate is a stunning Scottish mansion for your dream holiday. Taste the whisky library; see the private lochan; smell the flowers in the Victorian walled garden; hear the rush of water over rocks at the River Don; and feel the warmth of the welcoming, crackling fire.
