The Scottish Highlands region
The Highlands are home to a quarter of a million people living in communities spread throughout the area and this is the reason why it is such a wonderful holiday destination. It has a vibrant city as well as a good mixture of remote crofting communities and sparsely populated islands.
The Moray coast has a number of small fishing villages such as Burghead, Hopeman and Findhorn dotted along it. The beautiful countryside makes this an ideal place to live and visit.

Fort George and Culloden, the historic battlefield is just an hour's drive. The County of Moray has the only Malt Whisky Trail in the world - 7 distilleries and the Speyside Cooperage are easily reached. For retail shopping the Johnston's Cashmere Visitor Centre is just 12 km away and Brodie Countryfare is 30 minutes drive, Baxters is also based in Moray. Findhorn is 6 miles away with excellent pubs and a wide range of water sport opportunities.
The wonderful sandy beach adjoining Roseisle Forrest is 3km down the road from the Croft. There is cycle and walking trails in the Forest. From Roseisle you can walk along the beach to the nearby coastal village of Burghead. Within 2 miles there is trout fishing lakes, quad biking and golf course.

We really enjoyed our stay at Springfield cottage, it was very warm, comfortable and well equipped. We loved the wood burner, very cosy in the evenings
When we got there we were delighted to find the basics like salt, sugar, tea, coffee and dishwasher tablets. Luckily we had brought milk and other perishables on the way.
It is a very peaceful place - just what we needed for our getaway.
Christine was very friendly and welcoming, we didn't need her help for anything because it was so well equipped to start with.

Springfield Croft is perfect for a family holiday. It is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Our kids loved the huge garden and the adults enjoyed sitting by the log fire at night. The owner is friendly, helpful and very welcoming. I would definitely recommend Spiringfield Croft and would book again when we holiday in Moray.
