Great place for a quiet weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Fiona (and Tom) for such a warm welcome to a wonderful place to retreat to and recharge the batteries. The Stables are all they say in the description and especially at this time of year (with snow on the ground when we arrived) were warm and cosy throughout. The property is well equipped with quality furnishings, and we enjoyed Fiona's photographs on the wall. We are sure we will return at some future date.

Superbly appointed cottage. Ideal location for a zillion places to go and things to see.

  • 5 of 5

Our aim was for a few days R and R away from it all. The Stables had all the comforts we needed for just that. Many thanks to Fiona and Thomas for providing such a well appointed and ideal location.

Lovely cottage on beautiful farmland

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property with spectacular views across the farm. It was great watching Bill the Clydesdale horse and the sheep every morning and getting a daily visit from the peahen. The property was also in a great position to visit distilleries (which we did a lot) and to take in the culture of Speyside. I would definitely stay at the cottage again.

Very clean and tidy, lovely host, lots of farming activities to entertain

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely cottage on the cleanest, neatest farm I've ever visited. The steading was spotless and very well equipped. The underfloor heating kept every room cosy and there was a lovely wood burning stove for extra warmth and atmosphere. We only met Thomas, who was very welcoming and helpful. We wished we had more time to have a better look at the farm but enjoyed watching him and his dogs round up the sheep and bring them for feeding.
