Once the children are in bed, watch the sunset slowly set with a glass of wine and selection of organic cheese from Connage Dairy.

Try birdwatching, forage for berries, or visit Loch Ness, then indulge in a game supper – we can provide grouse, partridge, roe deer and more.

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.

Cawdor Estate



Vast valleys, heather-clad moorlands and winding rivers. Cawdor Estate, close to Nairn, is the very definition of a hidden gem.


To the south, the Grampian mountain range. To the north, the glens and straths of the Black Isle. And nestled in between, Cawdor Estate, the home of our Scottish retreats.

Vast valleys, heather-clad moorlands and winding rivers. Cawdor Estate, close to Nairn, is the very definition of a hidden gem. And there’s more stunning countryside to explore nearby. Like the sandy beaches of Nairn. ancient woodlands of Cawdor Big Wood and walking trails through Darnaway forest. Visit Chanonry Point and you might spot Moray Firth dolphins playing. Travel east along the coast to fishing villages like Findhorn, Portknockie and Cullen and you’ll see why National Geographic lists the Moray Firth in the top ten coastal destinations in the world. You wouldn’t believe Inverness Airport is just 25 minutes away.



It’s up to you how you relax. You might enjoy a family picnic on the bank of the River Findhorn. Or seek an adrenaline rush with friends within the Cairngorms National Park.

From cathedrals and castles, to whisky tours and the Highland Games, there are endless ways to fill your days when you stay at Cawdor Estate. If you want to be by the sea, head down the road to Findhorn. We’d recommend a North58 sea adventure to spot local wildlife, or sampling the delicious organic food Findhorn Bakehouse offers. Or you could just embrace nature. In summer, make the most of 18 hours of daylight – spot curlews, admire wild flowers and pick nettles for soup. And we’d recommend Hardmuir Farm Shop for seasonal fruit and ice cream.
