Description

Enjoy a scenic and relaxing break in this semi-detached fisherman’s cottage in the lovely village of Kingston-on-Spey on the Moray coast. In a wonderful position just yards from the stunning Moray Firth coastline, this delightfully cosy and very comfortable cottage is an ideal choice at any time of the year. It makes an ideal retreat to return to after sampling the many attractions the area has to offer. An unspoilt wildlife paradise, this part of the Moray coast is home to many forms of wildlife. There are a huge variety of bird and beachlife here, from waders and ospreys to dolphins and seals which are all regularly sighted from the shoreline. There is a good golf course just a few hundred yards away with another at Spey Bay, 4 miles, and there is a restaurant in the adjoining village of Garmouth. This relatively little known area of Scotland is an absolute delight with stunning expanses of shingly beach dunes forming a barrier to the water inlets of the River Spey, renowned for good fishing and beautiful walks. There are bracing and invigorating walks along the Speyside Way and beaches literally from the doorstep where the plaintive cry of the gulls make an evocative backdrop to the sound of the waves on the shore. Inland the Whisky Trail is a must with many well known distilleries offering tours and tasting. The scenery inland is equally as stunning with easy access to the Cairngorm National Park from the cottage. Closer is Elgin with its cathedral and cashmere outlet or take a trip to Gordon Castle Estate which is set in ancient woodland on the banks of the River Spey. Beach 50 yards. Shop 4 miles, pub and 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.
