About the property

Perfect for families and couples who love the outdoors, the cottage has miles of woodland walks and historic Castles on its doorstep. The cottage has easy access to all amenities and shopping facilities in nearby Dufftown which is famous for being known as the heart of the Whiskey Trail and is just a short drive to the stunning beaches of the Moray Coast.

Centrally placed, you can be exploring the Cairngorm National Park, countless whisky distilleries, Aberdeen, Inverness & Loch Ness, Castles and numerous golf courses effortlessly. A short drive away is the vibrant City of Elgin offering culture, museums and night life with plenty of restaurants and bars.

Very nice, clean and restful place!

  • 5 of 5

It is a very nice accommodation with everything u need. All the kitchen equipment , full SKY tv offer (maybe not required with suchs nice surroundings :-) )

Everything looks very new and clean. There was a tray with some bread, tea, coffee, cookies and other stuff in the kitchen when we arrived!

Very helpful owners also.

A comfortable cottage in a scenic area

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in this comfortable cottage, which is in a lovely quiet area. The cottage is well presented and very clean.

There is plenty of walking locally and also interesting things to visit if the Scottish weather is not kind to you. We recommend the Aberlour and Benromach Distilleries, the Speyside Cooperage and the Knokando wool mill and worthy of a visit.

Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautifully renovated, very clean and comfortable. Plenty of dishes, towels, etc and the hospitality basket was very welcome - thank you! The beds are comfy and the lovely fleecy blankets great for snuggling up in front of the TV in the evenings. We were a party of 4 adults and despite there being only one bathroom there was plenty of room for everyone. We had a fabulous week's walking despite the odd downpour - and were very grateful for the use of the tumble drier. The track up to the cottage is very steep and was a "fun" challenge for us each day after our walks! I would highly recommend visiting the nearby Glenfiddich distillery. Would very definitely return to stay here.

If I could live there I would!

  • 5 of 5

If you love quiet but with an amazing view...this is the place to be.

A warm welcome by the owners, they thought of everything and more in this cottage. During our stay the shower was just an itsy bitsy too small, but were told that replacement was already planned within the next fortnight... With that alteration it will be a 10 out of 10 from me!

Ein so wunderschönes und traumhaftes Ferienhaus! Sehr sauber und alles wie beschrieben. Selbst unsere verspätete Ankunft war bei unseren Gastgebern kein Problem und wir wurden direkt mit offenen Armen empfangen. Es ist herrlich ruhig und man hat eine tolle Aussicht. Innerhalb weniger Autominuten ist man im nächsten Dorf. Allerdings ist ein Auto empfehlenswert, am besten auch mit Navi.

Ich kann dieses Haus jedem nur empfehlen! Und ich würde jederzeit wieder kommen!
