Lovely self contained apartment. Spotless clean, had everything to suit our needs. We rented this for a company employee who is working up there just now, and he says its his favourite by far!! Central to everything as well. Would definitely stay here again. :-)

Beautiful Accommodations at Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had a light on and was warm when we arrived. So appreciated! The location is wonderful if you are interested in whiskey distilleries. The Red Lion is right across the street, with great food, drinks, and music on Friday and Saturday 5 to 7 pm. The place was clean. One shower didn't drain well (in the tub). But the other shower and bedroom was available to us. Forres is a sweet little town: Coop right around the corner, the Benromach whiskey distillery in walking distance. Another great restaurant was the Mosset Tavern on Gordon Street--on the way to the distillery. Heat worked nicely. Internet was good.

As described, perfectly situated to explore Forres

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the accommodation, everything was clean and tidy with nice furnishings and attention to detail. The heating was very efficient so we were warm and cosy despite the cold weather outside. Only issues we had were not being able to find a cheese grater, if we go back I will remember to take one with me :-). Can highly recommend this apartment as a lovely place to stay, many thanks to the owners.

Sehr gemütliche Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Ich war nun schon zum zweiten Mal in dieser Unterkunft und bin doch wieder sehr begeistert. Die Wohnung ist sehr gemütlich und liebevoll eingerichtet und alles ist sehr sauber. Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin ist hervorragend.

Tolle, sehr große Ferienwohnung in perfekter Lage für die Speyside, die Highlands und Inverness

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung liegt in Forres, einer kleinen und wirklich sehenswerten Stadt zwischen dem Tal der Spey (Speyside) und Inverness, und nur etwa zwei Autominuten von der Schnellstraße, die alle wichtigen Ziele der Region verbindet erreicht, entfernt. Vor dem Haus führt eine kleine Straße vorbei, öffentliche und kostenlose Parkplätze sind gut 100 Meter entfernt. Vom Haus aus fährt man rund 25 Minuten durch die Highlands nach Carbridge, ca. 35 Minuten bis Aviemore - der Outdoor- und Wanderhochburg in den Highlands. Auch Inverness und die wichtigsten Destillerien sind nach 25 bis 35 Minuten Fahrt erreicht - wenn man nicht ständig Fotos von der atemberaubenden Landschaft macht :)

Die Wohnung selbst ist modern eingerichtet: Das Bad mit Badewanne und Duschvorhang ist gemütlich, das Haupt-Schlafzimmer groß, das Wohnzimmer für schottische/britische Verhältnisse richtig groß. Die Küche ist modern und umfangreich mit Voll-Herd (inkl. Grill und Backofen), Mikrowelle, Kühlschrank, Wasserkocher und - nicht zu unterschätzen! - einem modernen Waschtrockner, also Waschmaschine und Wäschetrockner in einem - ausgestattet. Gerade wer längere Aufenthalte, Rundreisen oder Outdoorerlebnisse plant, wird die Waschmaschine lieben :) Im zweiten Teil der Ferienwohnung ist eine zweite Küche mit Gefrierschrank, ein zweites Vollbad mit Dusche und ein weiteres Bett im Wohn-Küchen-Bereich - man teilt sich also das Wohnzimmer des ersten. größeren Teils der Ferienwohnung. Im Prinzip ist der zweite Teil ein 1-Raum-Appartement, das durch eine Verbindungstür mit der großen Wohnung verbunden ist. Ob dieser Teil auch immer Teil der Buchung ist, ist mit der sehr netten Vermieterin vorsorglich besser einmal abzuklären.

Da die Wohnung in der Tiefpaterre liegt, hat sie zwar nicht viel Tageslicht, die gemütliche Atmosphäre in dem historischen Haus und die stilvolle Einrichtung machen dies aber Wett. W-Lan (WiFi) und Digitalfernsehn funktionierten tadellos und runden das Angebot auch für "digital natives" zufriedenstellend ab.

Wer eine saubere, warme, großzügige und komfortable Wohnung sucht, um mit dem Mietwagen die Region zu erkunden und abends in einem der verschiedenen Pubs und Restaurants fußläufig einzukehren, ist hier genau richtig!
