Read on to discover some of the attractions you can explore while staying at one of our cottages in Banff. ... Read More »Moray cottages - or more correctly Morayshire - offer the ideal base for exploring the counties of Morayshire and Banffshire. These are situated between the Moray Firth to the north and Cairngorm Mountains to the south. This is a land of superlatives with the Firth one of the best places in Britain to observe dolphins and whales, while the River Spey, rising in the mountains, is one of the worldâ€™s finest salmon rivers. Flowing into the sea between the small cathedral city of Elgin and the fishing port of Buckie, the Spey also supplies water for some of the finest whiskies in the world - the Speyside Malts. The distilleries of Glenlivet, Glen Grant, Glenfarclas, Cardhu and Glenfiddich are based here, many open to the public. If these pursuits appeal while staying in one of our holiday cottages Banffshire could be the perfect destination for you.
