Luxury hideaway

A gardener’s cottage, nestled in Aberdeenshire, has been transformed into a five-star holiday hideaway using bespoke aluminium glazing from Sidey.

The self-catering property, called The Invergarry, lies in the charming village of Aboyne and has been converted and extended for visiting tourists.

The one-bedroomed holiday home in Scotland comes complete with sauna and private hot tub – hidden within a mature landscaped garden – and has been designed for couples to escape their busy lives and relax.

Grey aluminium fixed casement tilt and turn windows, with low-e toughened glass to offer high weather resistance to the cold, were manufactured and supplied by Sidey. At the back of the property, an aluminium residential door, with a matching coloured sash in grey, was delivered to site, and finally, an aluminium open-out bifold door was manufactured for the property’s lounge.

Sheila Fraser, director at Ron Shanks Development Projects, which carried out the transformation, said: “My business partner, Ron, visited Sidey to talk to the team about what we needed at the property and he was really impressed to discover that the waiting time for local trade customers was not that long. From ordering the products to having them delivered, I think we waited about six weeks.”

Since The Invergarry launched as a luxury holiday home for visitors to Scotland, dozens of couples have enjoyed the facilities in the last two years.
