Your Highland hideaway


Gardener's Cottage - Holiday Vacation rental at Cawdor Estate

Your Highland hideaway

Once the home of the Estate gardener, this whitewashed stone cottage is tucked away deep in the Drynachan Valley and bounded by views across the winding River Findhorn.

Peeping out from the trees, you’ll spot Gardener’s Cottage. Unlock the door and step inside your Highland hideaway. In all our cottages, we’ve tried to strike the perfect balance of convenience and charm. That’s why you’ll find restored Victorian fireplaces, panelled walls and stone slab flooring. But, there’s everything you need to cook up a big breakfast before a day of cycling, hiking, or foraging.

Gardener’s Cottage has three bedrooms, a stunningly refurbished bathroom and a separate shower room. So, there’s plenty of space for a family trip in half term, or friends exploring the remoteness over a long weekend.
