West Turret just for 2!

If you are a nature lover that seeks a romantic, rustic retreat, then Issueburn West Tower is the place for you. Issueburn is a quirky, modern replica of a traditional tower house, which was completed in 2018. The owners have split the property into two, self-contained sections – one of which is occupied by the owners. Located in the countryside near farmland, Issueburn boasts fantastic views along Strathisla between the Balloch and the Knock.

The West Tower is spread across four floors, with a room on each level which is accessed by a turret staircase. There is underfloor heating in all of the rooms but it does not extend to the staircase, so remember to take your slippers! Each of the rooms is cosy and the top floor has access to a balcony area, which is a fantastic sun-trap during the summer months. The kitchen on the ground floor is compact yet fully equipped with everything you could need during your stay. You will notice that the windows on the ground floor are small with iron bars across them – just like they would have done if this was a traditional 15th century building. Issueburn is home to numerous birds and wild animals (some of which actually nest on the outside of the building!) including a swift colony, which is a very rare sight in the countryside. Bats, badgers and woodpeckers have been spotted at the property too – what a delight!

Like an ancient sentinel standing grandly on the border of Moray and Aberdeenshire, you are ideally placed for exploring both counties. Close by in the town of Keith, you will find the heritage railway line that goes to Dufftown, where you can enjoy a leisurely trip to the whisky distilleries in Speyside. The Moray coast is just a short drive away too, where you can visit the dolphin centre at Spey Bay. This is a peaceful retreat for those who wish to relax and enjoy everything that this area has to offer.



West Turret is just for 2 and is set across four separate floors, which are each accessed via a turret staircase.

Ground floor: Kitchen with door leading out to the garden area with pond and fruit trees.

First floor: Sitting room.

Second floor: Double bedroom with ensuite bath, WC & WHB.

Third floor: Garden room with balcony area.

    Holiday Protection Scheme

    This property is covered by our Holiday Protection Scheme.

    Holiday Protection Scheme

    Cottages & Castles Ltd. (acting as agents for property owners) provides a guarantee for tenants who have to cancel their holiday at a cottage.

    If it is necessary to cancel your holiday, for any of the reasons A 1-5 below, you may do so at any time up until the close of business on the last working day before your tenancy commences and we will refund your balance. Your deposit is not refundable. If you have made a late booking and paid in full you will receive your payment minus the normal deposit sum (usually 30%).

    There is no charge for this holiday protection – it is included in the cost of your holiday. Please note that the protection does not apply to holidays in our properties with codes beginning with P (usually castles, mansions and lodges).

    Deposits may be transferred to a different date for a holiday at the same property within 12 months of the original holiday date, subject to availability, but not, however, for a different property. If the new booking is at a higher rate the tenant must pay the extra cost. No refund will be made if the new date is at a lower rate.
