"Beautiful cottage in a superb location"
Lovely, clean, comfortable and well-stocked cottage - had everything we needed to give us a pleasant and enjoyable stay on the Moray Coast. We were well placed for Culbin Woods, Findhorn Beach, Brodie & Cawdor Castles and wonderful scenery.......yet close enough to Inverness for city pursuits. Well recommended for couples or small families.

"Definitely the Best Holiday Home we have stayed at in a long time"
Park Neuk is definitely the best holiday home we have stayed at in a long time. It's location is quiet and rural, yet close enough to everything you may want and need. It's homely, modern, well equipped, clean and well maintained.....and the price is reasonable. Nearby Forres and Nairn offer the usual supermarkets and amenities required and costal point Findhorn even gave us a wonderful piano & violin concierto by famous Japanese virtuosos. Need the big city, Inverness is only 20 minutes drive away with all the usual high street names and famous East Gate Shopping Moll. This part of the highlands gives you coast, forrest, beach, farms......and the local climate is probably the best in Scotland.
