  • "This was our second stay here."

    The lodge was comfortable and the views are awesome. If its peace and quiet your looking for, this is a great location.

  • "Absolutely perfect holiday away, cute, great views and comfy settings."

    I would love to revisit, the only tiny issue was the tv, it would’ve been better with some type of connected device for Netflix, Disney plus, etc. HOWEVER, that’s a personal preference:) I would stay here again either way.

  • "Ben View has all the normal facilities, is clean and well-maintained, and has a good view of the Ben."

    However, it's lacking in character, is managed very impersonally, and is very un-green. We never met the owners, although they evidently live only about 30m away. They objected to our electric car charging, but only via Sykes, never coming to discuss it, and with the information buried in the middle of their folder. They don't have recycling or compost bins (although Moray Council do), and they closely mow (and probably spray) a wide area round the cabin into a wildlife-free 'green desert'. There is another lodge nearby, not shown in the photos, and no direct way to walk up onto the Ben without driving first. This place is unlikely to meet your expectations if you like to engage with your immediate environment (rather than just using it as a base and driving everywhere). Electric car owners also beware: not only will the owners forbid you to charge there, but the chargers in the area often don't function, or can't be accessed because of the lack of a mobile phone signal.

  • "What a lovely place!"

    The cabin is well equipped, was spotless clean, beds are comfy. The best for me was the location. What a view from the patio! It’s so peaceful and quiet. All you hear is the birds and moos of the cows. Loved watching the rabbits visiting in the morning/evenings. You can get everything you need in (and the whisky;-) in Dufftown, a 9 minutes drive away. Lossiemouth with a fab beach and coastal walks is 40 minutes away. The Cathedral in Elgin is well worth a visit. Loved hiking up Ben Rinnes. Amazing views all over Moray. It‘s also a great base for exploring the Cairngorms National Park. We visited Balmoral castle and drove the snow road. Plenty of stops and so much to see. Hoping to come back one day!

The property

Dufftown 5.3 miles.

This well-presented single-storey lodge, Ben View, is nestled at the foot of Ben Rinnes in picturesque Glenrinnes of Moray, in the heart of Scotland's Malt Whisky country.

Ideal for a couple, this property enjoys ground floor accommodation with private driveway parking and a characterful interior, offering the perfect place to relish tranquil surroundings.

Start off your getaway in the stylish open-plan living area, boasting a well-equipped kitchen space, plush seating, and a contemporary dining table, a fantastic area for enjoying meals for two or reflecting on your trip so far.

During warmer months, discover the decking area to soak up the last of the sun's rays with your favourite tipple in hand; when the night draws to a close, retreat to the well-presented double bedroom, serviced by a sleek shower room.

A short distance from your doorstep you’ll find the village of Aberlour, dotted with excellent pubs serving tasty local produce, whilst showcasing its very own distillery; you’ll also have the chance to taste the world-famous Walkers Shortbread!

On your travels, stop off at Ballindalloch Castle and Gardens, spanning across acres of gardens, woodlands, and riverside paths, known as the ‘Pearl of the North’, whilst Craigellachie is accessible by car, where you can treat your loved one to a Scotch Whisky experience at The Macallan or brush up on your history at Telford Bridge.

Recommended for those who are fans of The Crown, embark on a day trip to Aberdeen, with the chance to tour Slains Castle and its grand exterior, renowned for inspiring the setting of Bram Stoker's novel of Dracula.

Inverness is also a popular area to tour, where you can experience Loch Ness and appreciate The Riverside Gallery, displaying a host of art, print and engravings.

Whether you’re into hiking, exploring the countryside, or tasting the local whisky, experience all at Ben View.

About the location

DUFFTOWN

Elgin 20 miles; Aviemore 46 miles; Aberdeen 50 miles: Inverness 56 miles.

Dufftown is situated in the heart of Speyside in north east Scotland and is a thriving and lively small town. It is also right on the Malt Whisky Trail and the old saying goes, “Rome was built on seven hills, Dufftown stands on seven stills”. There are now nine distilleries in the area so a spot of whisky tasting is a must, unless you are the driver of course! Apart from the distilleries it is easy to access the world famous salmon fishing of the Strathspey area and permits can be obtained locally. Dufftown has an 18-hole golf course complete with breathtaking scenery and guests are made very welcome. In the winter months staying in the area provides great value for skiers and snowboarders as it is only a 50 minute drive to the Lecht ski slopes and Aviemore is an hour or so away, plus The Cabrach is a ‘Dark Sky Designated Area’ which is ideal for astronomers.

Note: Electrical Vehicle Charging is not permitted at this property.
