About Hollie Ivy

I am an Alaskan girl who's relocated to Europe and am currently residing in England / Scotland following an 8 year stint in Germany.

After spending many years with my grandmother who ran a bed and breakfast on a glacier lake in Moose Pass, Alaska I developed a real passion for hosting travellers. As a small girl I always enjoyed the stories I heard from around the world, the delightful conversation and the endless joy that new places and experiences brought so many in my grandmother's home.

Today, I strive to honour her memory by sharing this experience with others and hope that everyone who stays in our properties leaves feeling refreshed and enriched in some way.

To all those who wander, happy travels.

Why Hollie Ivy chose Scotland

I've always loved the Scottish highlands and when this unique cottage came onto the market I couldn't resist the traditional architecture, the location, the stone features and having the river running along the rear garden is just idyllic.

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Quaint little place by the river. The house was comfortable and we loved the in-floor heating. Perfect for a quiet comfortable get away.

The owner was great to work with and the property was wonderful, relaxing and clean. Great location, we enjoyed hiking and seeing the countryside, along with a tour of the distillery. Would highly recommend.

Quiet retreat.

  • 5 of 5

A charming cottage with a river flowing behind it,this is a wonderful place to stay. Cozy and in a great condition and furnished to a high standard it is worth every penny of the cost per night. Thanks so much to Helen and Steve for their help and attention to detail. We even had a fire made up in the log burner ready to light on arrival.

Great place to stay... I would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Scotland from a base camp.

Many thanks Tiya & Davey Helen & Steve I`m sure we will visit again.

Charming cottage in beautiful Speyside country.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this comfortable home. The creek really is right out the back door.

Beautiful walking trails through the local hillsides; walk to Glenlivet distillery and just 20-30 minute drive to Dufftown and multiple distilleries. We didn't want to leave.
