Keith, Moray, Scotland
The delightful Scottish Country Cottage is conveniently placed half way between the cities of Inverness and Aberdeen on the world famous malt whisky trail. The luxury cottage is snuggled away in the garden at Mains of Auchindachy, just 2 miles from the market town of Keith in Morayshire.

Scottish Country Cottage is ideal for a perfect romantic getaway for two.

It’s also the perfect base to explore the surrounding countryside and many places of interest. The space is quaint and quirky yet contains all mod-cons.

The one bedroom has a beautiful handmade four poster bed.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'll need to make a lovely special meal or barbecue. You can either enjoy your meals inside by candle light and the wood burning stove, or in the conservatory; or on sunny days, outside on the cottage patio.

Never having ventured to North East Scotland we weren't sure what to expect. The weather was glorious - more hours per year of sunshine than Cornwall!! The cottage was cozy, full of character and in a lovely remote setting. As previous reviews say the hot tub is great, with a glorious view over the landscape. Laura spoils you with the...
