Description

Burn of Aultmore Croft is a superb stone built croft house situated in 200 acres of open farmland surrounded by hills and forests. This beautiful detached house has been completely gutted and then lovingly restored by its current owners and now provides the height of modern living whilst retaining its delightful original features. The house is extremely eco-friendly, with geo-thermal underfloor heating, solar panels and a warm, welcoming wood burner in the main living room. The accommodation is very spacious and can easily accommodate up eight visitors. A large entrance hall and utility room leads through to the bright kitchen. The living room has deep sofas and a lovely wood burner. The windows look out across the gardens to the hills and countryside beyond. There is a separate dining room with dining for up to eight. Upstairs are three large bedrooms and a shower room. With a spacious family bathroom on the ground floor the house is ideal for large families or a two-family holiday.
Set in 200 acres of farmland with a pretty tumbling burn running alongside, and situated on a no through road that leads away into the hills, it will appeal to country lovers and wildlife enthusiasts in particular. Otters have been sighted in the burn and deer, snipe, curlew, herons and a wide variety of other birds including a resident woodpecker can be spotted close by. With no near neighbours and two hundred acres of gardens and grounds, it provides total seclusion whilst being easily accessible for exploring the whole of this fascinating area and historic region.

About the local area

The house is locted near the " Fivewives Path", named after the women in the 19th century who would walk to Buckie to sell their fish in the market at Keith. The part of the walk from the croft over the hills to the coast is 7.5 miles..
There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area.To the North on the coast the famous Moray Firth dolphinsalong with seals and rich variety of seabirds are to be seen and Scotland’s only mainland gannetry at Troup Head is not far away. Boat trips run from nearby Buckie and are highly recommended to view the sea-life closer to hand. To the South there is unlimited hillwalking in the Cairngorms. The crystal clear rivers in this part of the Highlands ensured the development of the whisky trade and there are many famous distilleries to visit along the nearby “Whisky Trail.” Head inland to the heart of the whisky country taking in Keith, Dufftown and the numerous historic Speyside whisky centres along the way. The Castle Heritage Trail also provides a fascinating insight into Highland Scotland’s romantic and turbulent history. The pretty fishing villages dotted along the Moray and Banffshire coast are a real delight, with small winding streets and pretty harbours. Fishing, cycling, sailing, canoeing, swimming, surfing, bird-watching are all enjoyed locally.
