Folds cottage is small south facing farmhouse which enjoys all day sunshine and the stunning mountain views to the Cairngorms National Park. Folds is surrounded by a fenced garden. Pets are welcome.

Our location on the hillside is spectacular and wildlife viewing from the cottage of roe deer, buzzards, kestrels and red squirrels makes it a special, but remote place. Travelling on the quiet local roads is enjoyed by our visitors and there are wonderful walks on the Glenlivet Crown Estate along with more wildlife and walks throughout the Cairngorms National Park. Dufftown is the centre of the Malt Whisky Industry and there are many distilleries open to the public offering free tours and tastes including The Glenlivet, Glenfiddich and Glenfarclas. For a change from mountain air it is an hours drive to the coast with stunning beaches at Lossiemouth, Findhorn and Cullen. We have a good local pub, the Croft Inn and restaurants in Dufftown and Tomintoul.
