“This is a home from home, I love it”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Jon and I have just stayed at the cottage for the second time. The cottage is very comfortable with everything you could need during your stay. On arrival there was a 'Welcome pack' so we were able to relax with a welcome cuppa after the long journey up there, all the way from Portsmouth. We both love it. The peace and quiet, the beautiful countryside and Elgin town just 10 minute drive away. What more could anyone ask for? We will definitely be looking to go back again.

Thanks to Caroline for a wonderful stay at the Lodge. Due to last minute hitch, arrival plans changed and Caroline sorted it out,excellent.
A lovely welcome pack,ideal for a stay in such a remote place.
A really comfy bed with fresh bedding was important to me and The Lodge delivered it.
I loved the log fire on the evening and the central heating kept away the chills.
A really relaxing place to stay, only 6 miles to Elgin and about a mile or so to the coast.
Perfect.

“A very pleasant cottage in a lovely area.”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

A very pleasant cottage that we would book again if visiting the area. The welcome pack was much appreciated and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the log fire complete with an ample supply of logs.
