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

Amazing house, well equipped and lovely hosts!

A group of ten of us stayed here over Easter and we had a great time. The house is spacious, well equipped, warm and was a real delight. Maggie was very helpful and made us feel welcome. Thoroughly recommend a stay here!

Fantastic Five Star Accommodation

5 of 5
Last week we had five fantastic nights in this five star property. It was perfect in every way. The house and contents are absolutely stunning. Super cozy comfy beds. Underfloor heating. This is five star accommodation. The views are amazing from every window. Special mention should go to Claire for making our stay so perfect. Her communication before and during our stay was above and beyond what we expected. Would we stay here again ? - oh yes we would!!!! Would we recommend ? - oh yes we would!!!!! We did not want to leave. Lilyfield is a hidden highland gem and we are so pleased we found it. Sandra
