    “This was a lovely property, very comfortable and well-appointed - it exceeded our expectations.”

    The situation was perfect for our needs - both the coast and the Cairngorms National Park were easily accessible and the immediate surroundings were beautiful.

    The situation was perfect for our needs - both the coast and the Cairngorms National Park were easily accessible and the immediate surroundings were beautiful. The only minor criticisms (which by no means caused us any problems) were that the mattress in the master bedroom was a bit soft and springy and the garden was a little neglected. However, as I said, this didn’t detract from our stay at all and we would definitely consider going back again.

About the location


Elgin 15 miles.

The small, pretty village of Aberlour lies on the banks of the River Spey, and is surrounded by wonderful open countryside, with the Cairngorm Mountains on one side and the Moray Firth coast on the other. Noted for its presence on the Whisky Trail and for Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival visitors will be stunned to realise that there are 50 whisky distilleries within a 15 mile radius of the town. Many of these distilleries are well worth a visit as they have excellent visitor centres with plenty of tasting on offer. The area is a magnet for fishermen with the River Spey so close by, whilst walkers will certainly appreciate the fabulous walks and wildlife they will encounter en route through the Speyside Way, one of the four official Long Distance Routes in Scotland. Aberlour is a great base for exploring this region of Scotland.
