We are unfortunately unable to welcome guests from more than 1 household at this time** Old Duffus farmhouse, on historic, family run Duffus Estate, provides a spacious yet homely atmosphere, perfect for families or other larger groups. Fresh air and rural tranquility abound - the farm is surrounded by open fields filled with bird song. With stunning views of Duffus Castle, the property is the ideal place to retreat and relax. Just imagine a stroll through the castle ruins as the sun sets across fields of golden barley......or a sunny evening BBQ and fire bowl with a killer castle view! It sleeps 8 (2 doubles & 2 twins) and both bathrooms are on the ground floor therefore making it easier for those with more limited mobility. There is a wood burning stove in the sitting room for cooler evenings and also an open fire in the kitchen - great for setting the atmosphere for those long, lazy dinners around the large farmhouse kitchen table. Complementary logs are provided from the Estate. The area is packed with things to do: from exploring the gorgeously unspoilt Moray coastline with its miles of quiet golden sandy beaches, cliff top trails, caves, sea stacks and dolphin spotting to the Speyside whisky trial, numerous historic attractions such as Spynie Palace and Brodie Castle, golf and cycling to name but a few! The nearby village of Duffus has a lovely local pub, shop, post office and play park whilst Elgin boasts some great independent shops, e.g. Gordon & MacPhail - the local whisky and deli emporium and Pencil Me In - the local pencil imporium! The property is located approximately 2 miles south of the village of Duffus and approximately 4 miles north of Elgin. It is within easy reach of the A96 that runs between Inverness and Aberdeen which both have airports.More
