Cosy family cottage in the heart of the Speyside single malt district, ideal for spotting rare Scottish wildlife and discovering the heart of Moray''s history and distilleries.

Formerly the brewers’ house for the nearby distillery, this traditionally built three-bedroom cottage is the perfect retreat for families looking for a base from which to explore the Speyside countryside. After days spent climbing the nearby mountains of Ben Rinnes and Ben Aigan, walking the Speyside Way or playing a round on one of the many nearby golf courses, return to your quiet countryside cottage for a night of peaceful relaxation listening to the gentle murmur of the garden burn.

Surrounded by open countryside, this granite stone and slate cottage has a traditional homely feel throughout. Gather together around the large kitchen table for hearty breakfasts and share leisurely meals and convivial conversation at the dining table late into the night. With views across the burn and to the distant mountains beyond, you can snuggle up together in the relaxing sitting room as the flames flicker in the open fire for a family movie night.

Step through the front door into the bright entrance hall. Cook up a storm in the spacious kitchen and plan your day over a coffee at the kitchen table. Share tasty suppers in the elegant dining room where you can share a bottle of wine and relax into the evening. Curl up on the plump living room sofas and watch a film or chat in front of the open fire - or for quiet moments, cosy up in the sun porch with a good book or just sit and enjoy the view. You’ll find the spacious family bathroom on this floor as well as the first of three comfortable double bedrooms.

Take the stairs to the first floor where you will find a further two comfortable double bedrooms dressed in traditional country style.

Set in expansive gardens, spend your evenings sat outside watching the sun set over the mountains or stargazing in the clear skies. There is private parking at the cottage.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
