Beautiful lodge , relaxing stay

4 of 5
Really enjoyed our stay here from the stunning views to the beautiful interior with two ensuite befrooms, amazing. Loved being able to chill out in the hot tub in the evening which is a great way to end the day! If I had to be picky the access road is not the best especially at night and some finishing touches are needed like side lights in the living room and providing dishwasher tablets would of made life easier. But as I say minor details in a otherwise great stay.

Beautiful haven

5 of 5
The location of the cottage is absolutely perfect, just metres from a small sandy cove. The owner has placed the dining table at the front window and we enjoyed all of our meals looking out to sea...pure bliss. The cottage is modern, spacious and very well equipped with a superb heating and hot water system which was much appreciated. Really couldn't ask for anything more. The owner provided basics for our arrival and also dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll etc which again was much appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the local area and once again the cottage location is ideal for visiting many attractions on the Moray coast as well as being on the coastal path. Would definitely recommend this cottage and the owner who was very responsive and provided everything we needed.
