Places to Visit on Holiday in Moray, Scottish Highlands & Islands

The elevated location overlooking the bay gives this property "something special." The breathtaking views from so many of HillCrest's windows are awesome, and the gorgeous garden decking area takes full advantage of this idyllic spot. The property itself is finished to a exceptionally high standard throughout, with beautifully appointed and spacious rooms, public areas and bedrooms alike. Attention to detail has been paramount and you will be guaranteed a top class holiday in this stunning home. Our first visit to HillCrest most certainly won't be our last! Thank you, Rob and Selma!

We were a group of 4 adults and 2 kids - Our 2 kids (9/11) loved the trampoline and the pool table and indeed so did the big kids! Great walks both direct from the house and within short distance by car. My kids want to book again for next year, we may become regulars. Thank you for sharing your lovely holiday home.
