  • "The property was beautiful."

    The photos really didn’t do it justice. The host was so friendly and welcoming. She went above and beyond for my little girl during our stay. All the little touches really meant a lot to us. I am already recommending them to my friends and family.

  • "Myself and my partner have really enjoyed our stay at Moss of Bourach."

    The pod and hot tub/pool was fantastic. The owner Jane was very welcoming and had given us a tour of the pod on arrival and ensured we were happy with everything. As the pod is next to the house, Jane ensured our privacy was respected at all times, which we couldn’t have asked for any better. Jane also checked in with us during our visit to ensure we were happy with everything and if we had any questions relating to our stay. The beautiful countryside outside the pod, was brilliant and Jane left notes on places where we could visit which was lovely. Jane’s lovely gestures made our stay even more enjoyable and we are very more than pleased, we have had a lovely, relaxing few days and we would definitely recommend to others. We will be back!

  • "We enjoyed 5 nights at the property."

    The property was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities available that you could need. The hot tub was a fantastic bonus and we used it every day. The views are fantastic from the property and you can view the sunset from the rear of the property. We met some nice people during our stay including the owner, the sheep farmer, the gardner and some friends who were looking after Marmalade the cat as the owner was away for the begining of the week. Would definitely stay again.

Enjoying high quality contemporary features, a large garden and a 17 foot swimming pool/large hot tub for watching the starry sky, this one-bedroom pod is perfect for a couple; it will also suit a young family or up to two additional guests, utilising the two full-size single sofa beds in the sitting/living area.

Savour mealtimes together at the dining table for up to four or make it an alfresco affair to enjoy the countryside backdrop over a glass of wine.

Take a dip in the large spa hot tub, which is accessible for those with limited mobility; afterwards you can rinse off in the wet room. Relax on the plush sofa whilst the Smart TV plays a film and when sleep calls, there is a super-king-size bedroom (zip/link) with ample storage and massage bed feature if desired.

Begin the day with a hot beverage in the garden and let the morning sunshine waken you before exploring your surroundings around the croft.

About the location


Elgin 15 miles.

The pretty town 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.
