The modern design of the house makes the maximum use of natural light to provide a welcoming holiday home which is sure to be enjoyed by all, the cathedral ceiling in the sitting room with window walls to the Mountains and adjacent woodland ensures a feeling of both space and peace.
The house has a private setting with a surrounding woodlands with wildlife of all sorts on the door step. While well off the beaten track is is only a few minutes stroll to the river and over the footbridge to the thriving town of Aberlour, where a good range of independent shops (including a not to be missed Deli), hotels and restaurants can be found. A short (country) walk up the hill through atractive woodlands takes you to the small village of Archiestown, which has a hotel/restaurant, post office & grocery shop. Slightly further afield (roughly a 30 minute drive) are Elgin and Grantown on Spey, offering a wider variety of supermarkets, shops and restaurants. There is an attractive walk (40 minutes or so) through the owner's woodland estate, down to Aberlour with a foot bridge over the river into town; but do note it is downhill all the way so the return home is slightly longer and more strenuous.
The choice of places to visit and things to do and see is numerous but briefly your itinery might include an enjoyable visit to local distilleries at Aberlour and Cardhu, take in the Knockando Wool Mill, a day trip to the seaside town of Cullen or the Moray Firth with the chance of Dolphin and whales if you are lucky, a day to trip Inverness which is the Capital of the Highlands, visiting Elgin Cathedral and of course the wonderful Speyside countryside.
Outdoor activities include excellent fishing on the Spey, Mountain bike and cycling routes, pleasant walks on the Speyside Way or more strenuous walks and climbs in the nearby Cairngorm Mountains. The cottage has a lockable store shed for fishing tackle, bikes and canoes, with a useful heated boot lobby/rear vestibule for wet outdoor kit.
