Scotsonhill Farmhouse sleeping up to 8 guests
This stunning property with a cosy wood burner, nestles in a peaceful area perfect for family or couples all year round.
This sympathetically renovated, detached former farmhouse enjoys a peaceful setting surrounded by open fields, yet lies just 1 mile from the Moray town of Elgin. The farmhouse has been equipped and furnished to a very high standard with your every need catered for, and makes the perfect base from which to explore the many attractions and amenities this lovely part of the Northern Highlands has to offer. Elgin is located near the beautiful Moray Firth coastline and enjoys a large variety of shops, bars and great places to eat, along with some historical sites including the ruins of Elgin Cathedral and Elgin Museum – a must see! Visit Culloden Battlefield, Fort George and The Moray Firth coastline, voted amongst the ’top 20 coastal destinations in the world’, and dotted with many picturesque fishing villages and unspoilt beaches. You can meander along the beaches and hopefully catch sight of the Firth’s famous residents, the schools of bottlenose dolphins.
The area is renowned for the Malt Whisky Trail, the only one of its kind in the world. There are distilleries to explore where you will be given a fascinating insight into the production of Scotlands most celebrated drink, and be told the story of how water and barley are transformed into ‘the water of life’. Many outdoor activities are available including golf, with numerous courses within easy reach, mountain biking, watersports and sea trips to name but a few. Further afield you can take a trip to Inverness, the Highland capital, Drumnadrochit, a village set on the western shore of Loch Ness, or the bustling town of Aviemore in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. To the west, a trip to the Isle of Skye is recommended, and northwards you can a take a day trip over the beautiful Orkney Isles. The less energetic can sit back, relax and unwind in front of the wood burner. Beach 4 miles. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.
