You could not find a more secluded place to get away from it all. Peterfair is perfectly placed for discovering whisky county, the Cairngorms and the Moray coast. New for 2021 is a geodesic dome for quiet time, wildlife-spotting and star-gazing. Peterfair is close to Aberlour (7 miles), Grantown-on-Spey (15 miles), Dufftown, Glenfarclas Distillery, Ballindalloch Castle , Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Ben Rinnes, the River Spey, The Speyside Way, Moray coast, A9, Inverness and airport.

The space
Peterfair Cottage is a converted 19th Century (probably older!) croft and the home to working Speyside sculptor, Stuart Murdoch.
Although listed as a private room, you effectively get full use of the old part of the cottage – including king-sized bedroom, new bathroom and snug/TV/fire room. New for 2021 is a geodesic dome in the garden – a very comfortable space for breakfasts, wildlife- and bird-spotting, sundowners and stargazing. As we are on the edge of a a recognised dark sky zone, the night skies are amazing to view from the cosiness of the dome.
The property is 1,000 feet up in the hills above the River Spey next to Ben Rinnes. It is a remote and secluded setting with great access to many of the local attractions and is a perfect place to base yourself for walking, cycling, canoeing, fishing, skiing, the Whisky Trail, castles and coast.

Where you’ll be

Moray, Scotland, United Kingdom

I am on the doorstep to the Speyside whisky trail, distilleries and visitor centres. The River Spey is fairly close by as are some great country and hill walks.

For people considering walking the Speyside Way, here is a great website...

*Please note – in response to some guests leaving only 4 stars for Location, I would like to give some more clarity. Peterfair is very remote! The nearest pub/restaurant is the Delnashaugh Hotel, nearly 2 miles away. The nearest village with any shops is Aberlour, 7 miles away. The River Spey is about a mile away although access points and bridges over the Spey are a few miles from the property.

Walkers on the Speyside Way – please advise me in advance. Many walkers continue their journey from the Ballindalloch station to the Delnashaugh Hotel for the evening meal. The owners of the Hotel very kindly give my guests a lift to the cottage after their meal. Alternatively, I can arrange for you to be picked up from the Speyside Way.

Distillery visitors – I am a short distance from Glenfarclas distillery. Many people walk there from my property. Otherwise, a lift can be arranged.

For visitors visiting from overseas, here is a good video showing tips of driving in Scotland...

I am full-time, self-employed sculptor working in wood, stone and slate producing all sorts of pieces, mostly for private commission or public space. My workshop is at my home but separate to my cottage.

When I'm not working I spend a fair amount of time refurbishing and modernising my cottage, which is an early 19th century croft.

In my spare time I enjoy hillwalking, wild camping, cooking and keeping fit. I love exploring this beautiful country either in my camper converted Land Rover or on the back of my motorbike. I am also learning to sail with a view to buy a sailing yacht to explore the West coast and Islands of Scotland.

This is the first time I have offered up my home as a place for visitors to stay and I am very much looking forward to meeting new people and introducing them to this lovely part of Scotland.
