Our stay at America Cottage was the highlight of a two week road trip staying at a number of other lodges/cottages..... not only are the location, premises and facilities absolutely superb and both maintained and equipped to the highest of standards, but the owners were very friendly, eager to please and informative. The grounds are extensive and very well maintained....

About the neighbourhood
The award-winning, flower-filled parks and gardens of Forres make it a welcoming stopping-off point. Attractions here include the Falconer Museum, the fine views from the Nelson Tower on Cluny Hill, and Dallas Dhu Historic Distillery, Built in 1898, this museum and visitor centre is a perfectly preserved time capsule of the distiller's art where you can see and hear how whisky was made and sample a free dram.
