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. This includes the small coastal town of Burghead, which is surrounded by sea on three sides. Perhaps the main reason to visit the town is the underground chambered well which is very old and was discovered in the early 19th century. Steps have been taken to preserve the well and its exact purpose and origin is still in debate. The town also has remains of a Pictish Iron Age fort which was mostly destroyed when the town was rebuilt in the 18th and 19th century.

A fabulous property in a fabulous location!

5 of 5
Everything about our stay at HillCrest was perfect. 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!

Superb

This house is perfect. Well equipped, comfortable, cosy and in a perfect location. 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.
