The Scottish Highlands region
Morayshire is an oft forgotten gem in the Scottish highlands. Within easy access from both Inverness and Aberdeen - it has a lot to offer in terms of places of interest, beautiful scenery and things to do.
Moray is also renowned for its micro climate - giving marginally dryer and warmer days. You have to experience it to believe it!!
Set in the heart of Morayshire, the area has the best of both worlds. Within minutes of many glorious sandy and quiet beaches such as Covesea and Roseisle or just a short drive from the Cairgorms with their rugged mountains, glens and rivers.
There is a plethora of historic sites to visit including the nearby St Peter's Kirk and Duffus Castle as well as Brodie Castle, the famous Fort George and Spynie Palace to name a few. Feeling active - then there are numerous golf courses suitable for all abilities, the Elgin leisure centre with swimming pool and ice rink, sailing in Findhorn or fishing on the Spey.
Feeling indulgent - then head to the hills and taste some magical Speyside malt Whisky at some of the worlds finest distilleries such as Glenlivet and Glenfiddich or relax at the Boath House Aveda spa. For shopping there is Johnston's Woollen Mill famed for its cashmere, Baxters famed for its...tinned soup, and for the whisky connoisseur - Gordon & MacPhail's shop and deli on South Street in Elgin.
For the kids there is the the Loft play barn by Kinloss, the Cooper Park in Elgin, and further afield, Landmark at Carrbridge with its adventure park and water slides. Feeling like a meal or drink - nearby Lossiemouth and Elgin have a variety of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes whilst Boath House near Nairn boasts a Michelin starred restaurant.

"Excellent Central Location for Exploring the Moray Coast"
Stayed for a long weekend in March to visit friends in Elgin. Great compact little cottage with everything you need. Fantastic central location for acces to all the local areas; Elgin, Burghead, Lossiemouth etc...so much to see and do yet all within easy reach. Pet friendly which was a real plus and had large enclosed garden away from the main road for our golden lab to run around in. Friendly and welcoming owner's who are there to help whenever you need them.
Many thanks for taking the time to review our property. Unfortunately there is little we can do regarding the size of the bathroom. It is small but perfectly formed with a bath (shower over bath), sink and toilet. I do take cleanliness very seriously and only getting 3 out of 5 for the bathroom is disappointing. I shall contact our guest directly to find out more details and will strive to ensure that all levels of cleanliness are back up to 5 out of 5 as rated in previous reviews.

"A warm and friendly welcome"
We have only stayed at The Lodge for a short break but this little cottage packs a really warm welcome and I feel sure we will be back sometime soon. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you would expect to find at home and the welcome pack of fresh bread, milk and other goodies was a really nice touch.
The cottage is ideally suited to exploring the Moray and Aberdeenshire coast with some excellent walks, wildlife and beaches all around. Well worth a visit.
