Description

A large, classically beautiful country side set amidst 1500 acres, Burgie House is a welcoming and family friendly holiday house that is perfect for a large group. This much loved, large family house is traditional and welcoming with plenty of public space, including a wonderful basement billiard room and a fantastic ceilidh room – a great “play area” for young and old – with plenty of break away space for everyone. This house is traditional and beautiful so do not expect modern furniture and fabrics but do expect warmth, antiques, charm and character. Spacious traditional bedrooms all have lovely views across the paddocks or majestic trees at the rear.

Outside, there are beautiful grounds complete with Arboretum and lochans, paddocks, natural woodlands and walking/cycling tracks as well as large lawns, BBQ areas. You can bring your own horse should you wish. Burgie can offer you field sports on the estate, catering for all or some of your meals if you prefer not to self cater and some housekeeping should you wish.

The area offers a multitude of activities for all ages with excellent beaches along the coastline, championship golf courses on the doorstep, distilleries, historic castles such as Brodie and Cawdor and battlefields such as Culloden Moor, all within easy reach. Inverness airport is less than 30 minutes drive away and the city offers every facility you would expect. Nearby Forres is an attractive market town with supermarkets, hotels and pubs. It is an excellent area for a great holiday and with a marvellous house like Burgie to return to at the end of the day, you will have a truly memorable holiday.

    Burgie House reviews
    Burgie House is a wonderful place in a beautiful, secluded setting. It's a comfortable, well-kept family home which you won't want to leave. We flew to Inverness, from which it's a very easy drive. We came for a family gathering and made use of Mhari, one of the recommended cooks (excellent) and Rory, one of the recommended musicians, whose band (also excellent) provided entertainment in the ceilidth room. Morayshire does not have the dramatic scenery of the Highlands, but it has very pleasant countryside. A visit to Findhorn is a must. Walk over the dunes at low tide to see the seals. It's a beautiful place - we kept going back. Nelson's Tower on Cluny Hill in Forres is a surprisingly worthwhile visit, as is the small and lovingly-curated Falconer Museum in Tollbooth St. We had a fantastic time.
    Mr Burdett - April 2019
    A group of 14 friends stayed at Burghie House for a week during the end of My 2017 and we felt at home with the house, the space and the setting. The drive leading to the house, lined with rhododendron bushes bursting with colour, guided us up to the splendid house offering a stunning view of the grounds from the front door. We were not disappointed inside either where although, 'tired' in places, the comfortable and most suitable furnishings and facilities allowed us to be together as a group or do our own thing in and around the house. We had a super week and were able to use the house as a base to explore the area; the beautiful coast and the awesome highland landscapes were worth travelling 300 miles to experience. We had engaged the services of a professional chef for evening meals that week - not an expensive outlay for 14 people together- and this proved to be worthwhile with excellent cuisine and a chef who was accommodating by sending us menus to select from and then agree. We are so grateful to the owners for allowing us to stay in this wonderful place- thank you.
    Mr O'brien - May 2017
    We enjoyed the house and the surrounding. Everybody was happy and enjoyed the stay. The house provided great opportunities for our group, e.g. long walkings on the estate, reading, dancing etc. The house offers a very private and cosy athmosphere.
    Mrs Jarosch - July 2014
    We celebrated my 70th birthday with a family gathering with sisters, children, grandchildren and in-laws from as far away as the Isle of Wight and we all had a marvellous week. We had a ceilidh with the Colin Donaldson Ceilidh band in the Ceilidh Room. The Orcadian Strip-the-Willow claimed one victim but Elgin A & E sorted him out. The Ceilidh Room also witnessed a totally crazy Kareoke Contest. The Dining Hall was the perfect venue for a 21 character Murder Mystery Dinner. The Arboretum and Lochans were a delight for a stroll before sunning ourselves in the sun-trap that is the front of the house. Every one was delighted with their comfortable pretty bedrooms.It was a pleasure to wake to the lovely views across the paddocks each morning. Some evenings we lit the log fire in the Drawing room and sang round the piano. The kitchen was spacious enough for providing meals in a relaxed manner. The Teddies in the Snug were an immediate hit with the two little girls who claimed it as their room. Our favourite outing was the Rail Journey from Forres Station to Kyle of Lochalsh. The house was warm, friendly and welcoming. We all left full of happy meories of our family re-union.
    Mrs Hollingsworth - July 2012
    Burgie House was the perfect venue for my 60th Birthday party. 24 guests including my friends 18 month old girl and Dan, the Springer Spaniel,enjoyed the excellent facilities and also rambling round the beautiful grounds. With Elgin only minutes away, we had to take in some distillery visits.Beach trips for some and trout fishing for others filled in our visit. On our last day,10 of the party had the most excellent day out clay-pigeon shooting, all of us 1st timers but definitely an addictive pastime. Burgie definitely was the most perfect place to live for a week and enjoyed by all.
    Mr Mowat - July 2012
    lovely house in a beautiful setting. well stocked kitchen plenty of plates , cutlery etc. found oven too small to cook for 20. but managed 'just'. but would definately go back again, as still so much more to see.
    Mrs Royle - October 2011
    Burgie House was everything we expected and more. It is full of character, loads of space and not too "twee" in that the children could play with the knowledge that not much damage could be done. The stags on the walls and the stuffed birds all helped to reinforce this farming and country pursuits house. One criticism....The Aga was not hot enough ( a service needed perhaps), and the saucepan bases were not flat enough for the ceramic hob.
    Mr Wooding - August 2011
    Burgie House is an ideal location for larger groups. With two drawing rooms, a billiard room and a ceiligh room the house offers ample space for all to enjoy themselves. Bedrooms are as individual as they are comfortable and the kitchen is equipped to cater for big meals. An additional plus represents the garden around the house which allows for the odd morning or evening stroll. Burgie House is a relaxed and quirky place and Polly and Hamish Lochore are generous and easy hosts who will be willing to come to the house whenever help or advice is needed. We were a group of 24 and had a spledid time in and around the house.
    Dr Ehland - June 2011
    Your directions were not good. The turning from the main road is marked Burgie Mains not Burgie House and it has two flag poles as markers. From Forres on the A96, go straight on at the roundabout for Forres Enterprise Park, then Burgie Mains is the turning after the Burgie Lodge turning on the right. The main fridge was a problem as was the main oven on the electric cooker otherwise the kitchen was extremely well kitted out.. Central heating could have gone on a bit earlier in the evening and off again much earlier at night. (still on well after midnight). Although there were no midges around some members of our party were bitten by something (we don't know what or where). We all, adults and children alike, had a good holiday and enjoyed the house and grounds. We would rent the house again if the opportunity arose.
