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

If you can prise yourself away from your comfortable Moray holiday rental cottage then it is worth exploring some of the small towns and villages dotted around the region.

For us it is home from home, in a peaceful location to get away and relax for a few days. The cottage is well equipped, modern, clean and cosy; Karen the owner has kitted the cottage out extremely well going as far as leaving fresh coffee, wine, milk, bread, fresh orange and crisps for our arrival each time. The cottage is about a 5 min drive from Alford, and about a 25 min drive from Kildrummy Inn - a restaurant I highly recommend, the food is amazing! As always, I can't fault the cottage, or Karen the host who has been great at keeping in touch. We look forward to staying again sometime soon.

Corrimony is spacious and comfortable, with a lawned area to the front and grass also to the rear. The property is very well maintained and clean. It is only 3 miles to Grantown and facilities - shops, hotels, golf course etc. We had a lovely meal in 7 Bistro in the Square. We were sad to leave and wished we could have stayed for another week. We met the owner, who was very friendly.
