Aberlour holiday cottages - a truly Scottish holiday
The Speyside region of Scotland is remote - over a three hour drive north of Edinburgh – but the most fantastic holiday experience, as it is known as the home of castles and whiskey. We recommend a holiday cottage Aberlour to get the most out of the area.
Aberlour itself is home to Aberlour and Macallan distilleries, and nearby Dufftown is where you'll find Balvenie and Glenfiddich distilleries, and Balvenie Castle. Ballindalloch is home to both a distillery and an impressive castle, then as you head further south towards Cainrgorms National Park – location of Balmoral Castle, the Queen's summer residence – you'll find the Glenlivet distillery. All this, and more, in such a small area! If you want to visit a haunted castle, make your way east out to Fyvie, where several ghosts are resident.
There's plenty more to do in an Aberlour holiday cottage. Visit Knockando Wool Mill, a mill that's been running since the 18th century. They run tours as well as workshops for fun and unusual activities such as felting. There are also miles of walking and cycle paths in the area, as well as in the beautiful Cairngorms National Park, and Findhorn and Lossiemouth both have lovely beaches, so even though they don't drink whiskey, there's lots for your children and dogs to enjoy when you opt for a holiday cottage in Aberlour
