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.

    Issueburn West Tower reviews
    If there is nothing you like better than lying on a hot beach and doing nothing, then this is not for you. If, like me however, you love exploring and meeting people, I thoroughly recommend staying at Issueburn West Tower as a base to enjoy Aberdeenshire. This was my first holiday in the area and there are so many places to visit. Make sure you are a member of Historic Scotland and the National Trust for Scotland; you will quickly justify the membership fees by visiting countless castles and grand stately homes. The roads are plenteous and generally quiet. If you are not into your history, there are still plenty of lovely destinations you can go to, especially along the coast. Issueburn West Tower is, as you will have gathered, a rather unique property and certainly justifies its costs. It is most attractive inside and out and has all the basics you will need, presented in the charming context of a tower-house. I found the owner to be most friendly and helpful and although next door, privacy was never a problem. The rooms are cosy and the location most attractive. A basic (reasonable) level of fitness would help with the spiral staircase. I never bored with going up or down it! I'd love to go back and enjoy it at a different time of year, especially for the wood-burning stoves and dark skies. If you are into gardening or ornithology then I imagine that would be a bonus. I don't know why I put off visiting Aberdeenshire for so long. Thoroughly recommended and very memorable!
