Property code: 82693

Great for families and couples looking to explore Moray and Speyside from a peacefully located base near the River Spey, where red squirrels and deer are often spotted in abundance.

This quaint cottage sleeps six guests in three bedrooms and is perfect for those looking for a peaceful retreat with all local amenities within easy reach. Explore the bustling Highland town, sampling local produce as you go, and enjoy walks through the surrounding countryside keeping an eye out for the abundance of wildlife all from the door. After a busy day of exploring, return happily weary to warm your toes in front of the wood burner.

With an authentic, country-cottage feel, cream walls and large windows work together to create a spacious interior that is light and bright during the day but takes on a cosy atmosphere when the wood burner is lit. Interesting artwork and striking textiles throughout add splashes of colour and character creating a lovely and welcoming home from home.

After discarding outdoor clothing in the entrance hall, make your way to the galley-style kitchen to make a cup of tea before settling in the lounge. Comfortable sofas beckon you to relax, flames flickering and children enjoying the board games on offer. Prepare a delicious dinner and gather everyone together in the conservatory to enjoy a sociable meal with views of the garden and beyond, while the small table in the kitchen is ideal for grabbing a quick bite. Watch the sunset from the conservatory before retiring to bed for a tranquil nights sleep. A ground-floor bedroom and bathroom are useful for guests who struggle with stairs, and upstairs you’ll find two further bedrooms. Serene in cream and simple, elegant furnishings, the eaved bedrooms are flooded with light. Wake refreshed to take your morning coffee in the garden, listening to the birdsong as the sun rises.

Outside, there is a secure outbuilding for storing outdoor equipment such as bikes, fishing rods and golf clubs. Dine al fresco morning, noon and night in the lawned garden, soaking up the sun on a warm, summer’s day. There is private parking for three cars.

  • 3 bedrooms – 2 king-size and 1 super-king-size zip-and-link

A lovely house, so comfortable and nice and private. Great to see wildlife in the garden. We had fabulous weather, warm and mainly dry. The only thing that would make it perfect would be perhaps a hot tub for when the weather not so good.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
