Description

This lovely, detached, single-storey holiday property is very peacefully situated just outside the village of Rothiemay which nestles by the banks of the River Deveron, well known for good fishing and lovely walks. Refurbished to provide very comfortable and spacious accommodation, the property is ideal for family gatherings and holidays throughout the year. Families with young or older children will appreciate the separate games/leisure room housed in an A-frame chalet at the end of the garden with table tennis and a seating area for watching videos, whilst the main house provides a spacious living room with wood burner for relaxing or dining in style. Surrounded by a large garden with wild woodland it is perfect at any time of the year. There is good access to walking, golf, fishing, riding and cycling through stunning scenery as well as being just 10 miles from the Moray Firth coastline with its lovely beaches and traditional villages just waiting to be explored. Inland, the Whisky Trail is within easy reach and those interested in history will find a plethora of castles and standing stones.

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.
