The property

This Visit Scotland 4 Star rated property is a converted steading tucked away into the wonderful village of Aberlour.

Filled with history, The Farm Steading used to be part of The Aberlour Orphanage.

Charming and wrapped in character, this retreat is equally perfect for families or couples.

Wander inside, and a nicely decorated cloakroom lies just ahead of you, tied with a touch of detail.

Nearby, a spacious and well presented kitchen boasts a glimpse of colour, and is home to a pretty dining table, so you can sit back and embrace the cosy atmosphere.

For a change of scenery, a conservatory comes complete with comfortable chairs, ideal for lounging, or simply enjoying breakfast in the morning time.

Just off the hall, the sitting room is complimented by leather seating, a feature electric fire and a homely feel throughout.

Read a book or watch TV in the evening hours, to make the most of the peace and quiet.

A traditional staircase takes you up to the next floor where you will find original overhead beams across the entire floor, with a pretty double bedroom, accessorized and pieced together with matching bedside tables, fashionable mirrors and a Velux window.

This room echoes style and is sure to bring you a peaceful nights sleep.

An elegant bathroom rests across from this, with a white finish and a large mirror.

If you are looking for extra sleeping space, a twin bedroom accompanies the formation, neutrally designed with a dressing table.

For a relaxing afternoon, why not rest in the wonderful garden, surrounded by lovely greenery, and plants which are wrapped around the patio area.

This is a refreshing place to enjoy some 'me' time.

The village of Aberlour is waiting for you to explore its offerings, with a collection of walking routes, wildlife to be seen, and fishing opportunities close by.

50 whisky distilleries follow the area; certainly worth a visit.

An all-round pleasant getaway.

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.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
