Fantastic central location for acces to all the local areas; Elgin, Burghead, Lossiemouth etc...so much to see and do yet all within easy reach. Pet friendly which was a real plus and had large enclosed garden away from the main... more

I shall contact our... more

We have only stayed at The Lodge for a short break but this little cottage packs a really warm welcome and I feel sure we will be back sometime soon.
