"We recently hired The Gatsby for a family celebration over the weekend and ideal for such an event. it was beautifully decorated throughout and very well equipped. The owner couldn't have been more helpful, we highly recommend it "

Family celebration

"We hire The Gatsby for the joint celebration of my daughters 21st and my 50th birthday. it was fabulous. Everyone had a great time. The house looked lovely in the photos but we were blown away by how spacious and grand it really was. There were 27 of us for 3 days and we never short of a quiet spot or falling over each other. The dart board, table tennis and hot tub kept us occupied. There are also nice walks and activities in the area for longer stays. The icing on the cake was the snowy weather we had - it and the open fire set the scene beautifully. No one wanted to leave and we would all return in a heart beat! "

Joint birthday celebration

"The house was large and beautifully decorated so for a hen party it was the perfect place to stay. Being in Torphins meant we had access to the local shop (for anything we forgot!) as well as being able to use the pub next door for an evening meal which was very handy and the meal was lovely. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay."

Hen Party May 2018

"An amazing venue for my friends hen do. It was the perfect setting for a murder mystery night with a guys and dolls theme. The owner was so welcoming and helpful, I would highly recommend this house for a special occasion!"
