Mains Cottage is a picturesque 2 Bedroom cottage located in the peaceful area of Glenlivet and can sleep up to 6 people. This cottage can give you the perfect rural retreat and is ideal for families, couples or groups who enjoy the outdoors as it is centrally placed to explore the Cairngorm National Park. Skiing, walking and cycling are just a few of the various activities that can be enjoyed from here with the Lecht and Cairngorm Ski centres both easily reached from the property and the Glenlivet Mountain Bike Trials are just 15 minutes away (lockable garage is available on request for outdoor equipment).
The towns of Aberlour and Dufftown are both just a short drive away and offer a good choice of shops and restaurants. The Glenfiddich, Aberlour, Glenfarclas and Glenlivet distilleries, being just a few to mention, are also within a short drive and all have visitor centres for you to learn about our local nectar, Speyside whisky. In fact, the Glenlivet distillery can be seen in the distance from the cottage and when the wind is in the right direction the heavenly aroma of the maltings can be detected.
The stunning beaches of the Moray coast are easily reachable within the hour by car and if your luck is in, dolphins can be spotted at Spey Bay. Inverness, Aberdeen, Loch Ness and John O’Groats are all reachable for exploring, plus plenty of castles, historic buildings and gardens are nearby to wander around.
After a busy day exploring come back to the cottage and prepare a tasty meal on the wonderful Rangemaster cooker using fresh ingredients sourced from the local area on your travels, then sit down with a dram from one of the many distilleries visited in the cosy living room with the log burner keeping you nice and warm. Look out for the variety of wildlife that can be seen from the cottage and binoculars are placed on the window sills for you to deer watch, bird watch or even a pine martin passing by. Free Wifi is available for you to find out how to make the most of the area.
