Situated four miles east of the picturesque village of Ballater in Royal Deeside, Scotland, Cambus 0’May is a delightful area of lochans, bridges and winding trails through forests of Scots Pine. Popular with locals and visitors alike the area has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its geological features and is part of the Cairngorms National Park.
On a clear day, you can see the distant peaks of Lochnagar from a signposted viewpoint. If you are really lucky, you might spot a CaperCaillie, Scotland’s rarest bird, as you enjoy a walk through the forest. There are plenty of picnic benches available to relax afterwards with some good cheese and wine!
It is here that we are currently planning to open our purpose built cheese making facility along with a small dairy farm in 2010. The dairy will be dedicated to the creation of artisanal, traditional cheeses using original recipes and methods. There will even be a viewing platform so visitors can see the fascinating art of cheese making take place.
