Achneim Cottage

Accomodates up to 2 people

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.


Ivy Cottage

Accommodates up to 6 people

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.





Lochanshelloch Cottage

Accomodates up to 6 people

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.


Fisherman’s Cottage

Accommodates up to 6 people

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.





Gardener’s Cottage

Accomodates up to 6 people

Luxury and comfort meet the wilderness and unknown at Gardener’s Cottage. With the Highlands on your doorstep, you can explore native woodlands by bike, visit for the annual Pipe Band Championships, or pick elderberries for cordial. 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.


Drynachan Lodge

Accommodates up to 22 people

For summer holiday gatherings, memorable New Year celebrations, short Easter adventures or even intimate Highland inspired weddings, look no further than Drynachan Lodge. With 12 bedrooms, it’s easy to fit everyone – grandparents, cousins, family friends and more. Adults can catch up in the Tartan Room while children explore and teenagers do their own thing. In the evenings, everyone can feast and drink together in the dining room.

1. If you want to cancel

4.1 Your contract with us is a contract for the provision of leisure accommodation on a specific date or dates and this means that you do not benefit from a “cooling off” period. We do, however, offer you the right to cancel your contract subject to the provisions of this section 4.
4.2 If you wish to cancel a confirmed booking you must let us know by writing as soon as possible. Your booking will be cancelled with effect from the day we receive your letter.
4.3 In the event of any cancellations, we will endeavour to re-let the accommodation, and if successful the balance of the cost will either not be due, or if already paid, will be refunded.
4.4 The closer your cancellation is to the start of your booking, the less likely we are to recover the cost of your booking by re-selling your accommodation. Our cancellation charges therefore increase as your start date approaches.
