  • “Plenty of hot water, comfortable beds, couldn't find any non slip bath/shower mat.”

    Great view from the kitchen and living room. Could do with some clear instructions on using the television. We would of loved some information of the history of the house.

About the location


Elgin 17 miles; Grantown-on-Spey 24 miles.

Archiestown is a pretty and tranquil village located in beautiful Morayshire to the north of the River Spey and is one of the highest villages in Moray. In the centre of the village is a pretty tree-lined square, which is a designated conservation area, and the Archiestown Hotel occupies a corner location on the square. Archiestown is a very well kept and friendly village that has won the Moray ‘village in bloom’ competition on many occasions. The village is home to a shop, Post Office and local craft outlets, while the village’s hotel houses a cosy pub and popular restaurant. Archiestown is situated on the Malt Whisky Trail, with the famous Macallan Distillery to the east and the Cardhu Distillery to the west. Being in the heart of Speyside, Archiestown is an excellent location for touring this general area, including the nearby villages and towns. Nearby Aberlour is not only famous for its distillery, but is also home to the Walkers Shortbread factory and is a great location for some fishing too!
