There is free acccess to wifi throughout the house, terrestrial TV. Clean dogs are welcome downstairs, off the furniture. As a family of keep fisherpeople, we have visited the house for almost 40 years, and been lucky enough to fish many of the beats nearby including Arndilly, Easter and Wester Elchies, Aikenway, Rothes and Delfur. All are within 15 minutes drive of the house. The house has off road parking for five cars and is set within its own hedged lawns. The gate to the drive should be dogproof, and the road is quiet. There is a garage in which rods and waders can be stored, and where where is a chest freezer which you are welcome to use. The house is kept immaculately clean, all beds will be made for your arrival, and in winter a fire laid. All utilities (heating, electricity, oil, internet, firewood) are included in the price, as is cleaning after your visit, and with sufficient notice we may be able to arrange for cleaning and cooking during your stay, at additional charge. We ask only that you treat the house with respect, as you would anyone's home, and we look forward to welcoming you to ours.More

About the neighbourhood
The house is five minutes' drive from Aberlour and twenty-five to Elgin, homes to Baxter's shortbread and Johnston's wool and cashmere clothing, both now known throughout the world. The Spey valley, Speyside, is similarly renowned as the Highland heart of Whisky making and the Whisky trail. For history, Ballindalloch and Gordon Castles are under 30mins away There is plenty of scope for sporting endeavour. The Spey is one of Scotland's great salmon fishing rivers, but increasingly now welcomes canoe-enthusiasts, walkers, and groups wishing to enjoy the Great Outdoors. The stunning beaches at Lossiemouth are under 30 minutes away, though you need to be truly sporting (...) to get into the water!
Getting around
Your own transport is not essential, but it does mean you can enjoy more of the area in a shorter time.
