- A ROMANTIC GETAWAY -
Whether you want to whisk your other half away for your anniversary or fancy a spontaneous summer weekend away, there’s nowhere better to rekindle romance than Achneim Cottage. By day, explore the Moray Coastal Trail, attend an event like the Nairn Games, or head to the fishmongers for locally sourced lobster. By night, sip champagne as the sun sets, or huddle near the fire with a newly discovered malt whisky.Explore
Tucked away in the peaceful west end of the village, Ivy Cottage is a cosy base for countryside adventures. As soon as you walk through the striking red door, you’ll be dazzled by charming character and original features. Although you’ll feel far away from everything, you’ll only be a short stroll from the friendly Cawdor Tavern and Cawdor Castle.Explore
– A COUNTRYSIDE ADVENTURE –
- PEACEFULL WOODLANDS -
Close to Cawdor village, Lochanshelloch Cottage is surrounded by woodlands, rare wildlife and winding paths. Fill the gloriously long Scottish summer days seeking thrills on the Tomintoul Mountain Bike Trail, a 24 mile ramble along the Dava Way, dolphin spotting at Chanonry Point and more. Once the children are in bed, watch the sunset slowly set with a glass of wine and selection of organic cheese from Connage Dairy.Explore
On the banks of River Findhorn in the Drynachan valley, Fisherman’s Cottage looks like something you’d only expect to see in a watercolour painting. With the sun glistening on the river, it’s easy to imagine a fisherman passing his time here on a long summer’s day. Try birdwatching, forage for berries, or visit Loch Ness, then indulge in a game supper – we can provide grouse, partridge, roe deer and more.Explore

- A CHARMING HIDEAWAY -
Luxury and comfort meet the wilderness and unknown at Gardener’s Cottage.

Or you could just make the most of the peace and quiet, sitting by the restored Victorian fireplace with a good book, a cup of tea and some chunks of Scottish tablet.Explore
