With an activity centre, the river Spey and a number of golf courses nearby, this holiday home is so near to a host of activities you will need more than a weeks break

Within the Cairngorm national park in amongst the Scots Pines and close to the river Spey can be found this traditional stone-clad house. Set within its own 2.5 acres of grounds, this is a house that started life back in 1793, which has been added to over the years making it a large holiday house today, perfect for a group of activity minded friends or for a family holiday.

The picturesque town of Grantown-upon-Spey was formed in 1765 and is located on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park between Aviemore and Elgin. The highlights of the area are many but the river Spey defines this area. Fishing for salmon is very popular, as is walking the Speyside Way and of course, there is the Malt Whisky Trail to visit as many of the famous Speyside whisky distilleries as you can. The town offers a range of activities to suit all the family with an 18-hole golf course and an outdoor centre at Craggan Mill. The Landmark Forest Adventure Park and the Steam Train to Aviemore offers further family activities. Travelling to Aviemore and gaining access to the Cairngorms for winter sports or summer walking, could not be easier.


Located in the Highlands on the north coast of Scotland, Moray is one of the smaller of Scotland’s counties. There are some mountainous features including Bin Hill, but its main draw is the magnificent coastline, along the Moray Firth. Dolphin watching is most popular, with boat trips available to spot the many sea creatures that frequent the area. Seals, porpoises and the occasional whale have been seen in the Firth. The area of Culbin Sands, Culbin Forest and Findhorm Bay is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and the Sands are an RSPB Reserve. The county is in the heart of Whisky country, with a vast number of distilleries in the area, including the historic Dallas Dhu, pristinely preserved and open to the public. For real enthusiasts, the Whisky Trail takes in many of the local distilleries in this area and is worth investigating! Towns and villages in the county include the fishing town of Lossiemouth on the north coast; Elgin, the historic city, home to the dramatic Elgin Cathedral ruins; and Forres, home to Brodie Castle and the Falconer Museum. Other attractions in the area include Spynie Palace, the former residence of the Bishop of Moray, Knockando Wool mill at Aberlour. 

Highlands and Islands

This region takes in Inverness-shire, Ross-shire, Sutherland, Caithness and the islands include the Inner and Outer Hebrides as well as Orkney and the Shetland islands. For spectacular scenery the Highlands of Scotland provides some of the best, with a huge expanse of area full of mountains, lochs and glens full of romance, wildlife and scenic beauty. The heritage of this area includes Culloden, taking the ferry to the Isle of Skye or just taking in one of the many castles like Eilean Donan. There is also an immense range of wildlife to be found.
