Description

Enjoy a home from home in this detached spacious bungalow, situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in the village of Lhanbryde. Auldfield is warm and very comfortably furnished, and has an attractive terraced garden at the rear with views over the surrounding farmland. There is an abundance of amazing wildlife on the Moray Coast - ospreys, seals and dolphins are regularly spotted from the shingle beaches at Kingston and Garmouth, where the River Spey meets the sea. The historic town of Elgin is just 5 miles away, with its good selection of shops, cafés and restaurants. Visit the 13th-century ruins of Elgin Cathedral or sample whiskies from the local distilleries or the famous Gordon and MacPhail’s shop in the town centre – this is after all on the Whisky Trail. Golfers are well rewarded with a good selection of courses within a 20-mile radius of the village, including Garmouth, Kingston and Maverston, all within a very short drive of the property. Fishing enthusiasts can try for salmon and trout on the River Spey, and you can enjoy a pleasant day out at Baxters Highland Visitor Centre, Walkers Shortbread Factory or the Whale and Dolphin Centre, all very close by. Garmouth and Lossiemouth are a short drive away with fabulous beaches. The stunning scenery both inland towards the Cairngorms and on the sunny Moray Coast reflects the diverse landscape and beauty of this part of Scotland. Shop and pub ½ mile, restaurant 1 mile.

About the local area

The beautiful county of Moray lies east of Inverness and Nairn and is well hidden from the main Scottish tourist route. The coast is fairly flat, characterised by large stretches of sand dunes backed by forests and wide bays. Further inland the landscape changes to agricultural, rising up across empty moorland, criss-crossed by rivers and glens towards the foothills of the Cairngorms.

Elgin, Moray's capital is an elegant town offering an array of historic features to view including the magnificent 13th Century cathedral. There is also a Biblical garden, museum with fossil collections and Drumin Castle, a 14th Century tower house.

Not surprisingly this area is a haven for hikers. A network of paths and quiet back roads link the coastal towns and villages making it easy to explore the mosaic of farmland, woodland and shore. Follow the Moray Coastal Trail from Forres and you will eventually reach historic Cullen. Along the way you will find information boards describing your journey.

This unspoilt county abounds with wildlife, such as ospreys, otters, crested tits, red squirrels, pine martens and bottlenose dolphins. Visit Culbin Forest which stands on one of the largest sand dune systems in Britain, and Culbin Bar the best example of a shingle spit.

Visitors to the region will also discover a string of ancient Highland communities all offering you a warm welcome and a variety of attractions. From Historic ruins and castles to dynamic eco-communities, from scenic coastal woodland walks to thrilling climbing, skiing and mountain biking. Whether you want to stroll along the riverbank or beach, or tackle something more adventurous, there are always plenty of options when it comes to getting active.

Moray offers a real taste of the true traditions of the Highlands that is sure to have you coming back again and again.
