Where you’ll be

Moray, Scotland, United Kingdom

Loch End Cottage is located in the heart of historic Banffshire, the home of Scottish Malt Whisky and with easy access to the beautiful beaches of the Moray Coast and to the remote Cairngorm Mountains.

Loch End is accessed from the public road and onto a private track. The Eastern end of the Loch is home to the Loch Park Activity Centre, where you can book fishing on the loch - there is an abundance of brown trout.

There are walking routes to explore from the front door of the cottage, around the Loch or to Dufftown on the Isla Way Footpath.

The local town of Dufftown has a fantastic range of activities available, from golf, walking the local hills such as the Convals or Ben Rinnes or the long-distance footpaths (Speyside Way) or visiting the many malt whisky distilleries. There is an excellent range of shops for all the essentials you might need during your stay, as well as a selection of cafes and restaurants.

Within easy reach there is the opportunity to visit the Moray Coast, taking boat trips to watch dolphins, visit the endless beaches or inland, the castles, such as the ruins of Auchindoun, family-owned Ballindalloch Castle or the Royal Family’s summer residence of Balmoral Castle.

Of course, you can sit and enjoy the local scenery and wildlife, keeping an eye on the ospreys as they fish in the loch by sitting in the bird hide and deer which browse the local hills. Or watch the volunteer-run Keith to Dufftown Railway as it chugs along past the cottage.

We follow some great local businesses, such as cafes and restaurants, places to visit on our Instagram (drummuir_estate) - so have a look there for other ideas. We also have two other cottages available - Loch Park Cabin - perched high above the loch, or Drummuir Castle Gate Lodge.
