Our Perfect, peaceful Lodges

Welcome to Woodend of Glassel! Our comforable, dog-friendly holiday lodges are set in a peaceful location in rural Scotland. We’re just a five minute drive from the bustling town of Banchory – and even closer to the village of Torphins in Aberdeenshire.


Both holiday lodges are large, comfortable and open plan. With patio doors leading out to a covered decking area, you can relax from the moment you arrive. Sit back and enjoy your morning coffee or while away the evening with a nice glass of wine whatever the weather.

Each lodge has a family bathroom and three bedrooms; one double with an en-suite shower room, a twin room and a full size bunk room. 

Ben Macdui has a wood burning stove. If you like a nice toasty fire to cosy up in front of during the colder months this is the lodge for you.

“Holidays are our passion! We think we know the perfect ingredients for a fabulous break and you will find them all here at Woodend of Glassel!”

Both holiday lodges have three bedrooms. If you are planning a large family holiday or group gathering, you can them book both. Together they sleep 12 people in 6 bedrooms.

To make life a little easier if you’re travelling with wee ones, we have high chairs and travel cots available on request.

Well behaved dogs are welcome (max 2 per lodge).
