  • "Lovely cosy cottage and lots of wee extras provided which made our stay even more enjoyable."

    There were even mallows for the hot chocolate and our dog enjoyed his biscuits too. Plenty of logs provided for the wood burner too, which was great as it was quite cold for the first few days of our holiday. Nice walks from the cottage, although we spent most days walking on the beaches as there were a few to choose from which weren’t too far a drive.

  • "We stayed at Lily Collie's over Easter weekend and absolutely loved it."

    The owners are so kind and thoughtful towards their guests. The amenities are great, the cottage is warm, comfortable and very clean. When we arrived at our destination, there was a lovely 'welcome pack' including shortbread, hot chocolate, marshmallows, butter, marmalade, milk, bread and fresh eggs. Even the dog had a welcome basket waiting for him with warm blankets, dog bowls and dog biscuits. These things were an unexpected bonus and a very lovely thoughtful touch. We have stayed at many cottages for short breaks and holidays and never had the same kind of welcome anywhere. It was lovely. If that wasn't enough, on Easter Sunday, we had a box of chocolate eggs delivered outside the front door. These gestures are over and above and what makes a holiday very memorable. Highly recommend Lily Collie's. Great place for walking, cycling, sight-seeing, or just relaxing, etc. We loved it.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Enclosed garden would have been much better for us. Lots of little extras which were great. Only negative comment to make would be to have larger bath towels, bath sheets would be much better as the towels were small for shower/bath use.

  • "A beautiful cottage!"

    Very cosy, well presented with lots of lovely extra little touches. The owner, was very thoughtful and left lots of yummy goodies to get us started and enjoy throughout our stay. This really does set the cottage apart from other places I've stayed. Everything was very comfortable and very well equipped. The log burner was a treat and very easy to use with plenty logs, kindling, matches and firelighters. Again, this was brilliant! The location is also great as plenty of walks to do from the cottage. I would definitely recommend this cottage. It was first class.

  • "We had the pleasure of being the cottages first guests and we couldn’t have chosen a better location and welcome."

    The cottage itself is of the highest standard, cosy, well presented and within easy reach of some fantastic beaches, walks and other things to do. Owners couldn’t have been more helpful in arranging, during and post stay. If you are heading up to Elgin, Fochabers or nearby this would be a great place for a cosy and very comfortable stay. Would highly recommend.

About the location

FOCHABERS

Elgin 9 miles.

The highly attractive village of Fochabers is situated to the east of the River Spey. A key point along the Speyside Way (long distance path from Buckie to Aviemore), visitors stopping off can marvel at the fine selection of architecture which adorns the village. The Georgian church on the south side of the square is especially striking, complete with its clock-tower dated 1798. In the nearby village of Mosstodloch is Baxters food processing factory, a family-run company that has been operating in the area since 1868. Dolphins can often be seen playing at sea along this stretch of Scottish coastline, and ospreys can be found fishing for food for their young who nest in the tall pine trees. A superb location for enjoying the great outdoors!
