Scottish Highlands getaway.
A little out of the way. Car needed even to go for a walk as no pavements and very fast road outside property. Lots of lovely beaches within 15/20 minutes drive. House quite old fashioned, which we did expect. Could do with another tv in the main sitting room. WiFi not always great, which was a bit of a problem when husband had to work. Well equipped with cutlery, crockery etc. The room with the Aga, which is constantly on, was nice to sit in in the evenings and play games.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely house in a great location
Had a great time in the middle of August blessed by the microclimate offered by the Moray Firth/Findhorn area. The house was well equipped and spacious and was enjoyed by all, whether an adult seeking the a quiet place to read next to the fire or aga with a cuppa, a small child exploring and running around the garden, or a teen wanting to hole up in a room with mobile technology. Brilliantly located for cycle rides and trips out to all the fabulous and beautiful locations that the area offers. Highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Easter Kintrae
The Easter Kintae is an amazing property with atmospheric history in every room throughout the house. Located close enough to all amenities but with the distance needed to provide a tranquil get away from it all. My Christmas break at this property was one of my most memorable Christmas times ever. The house was filled with love and laughter, the sound of crackling open fires with its orange glow set the scene and provided exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend this property and hope to revisit The Easter Kintrae in the not so distant future.

5/5 Excellent

Holiday in Elgin
It has been a delightful experience staying here in this traditional spacious farmhouse. This holiday location is superb, quiet and peaceful. Fantastic views and only 5 mins to Elgin by car. 35 miles from the airport with an easy route to the farmhouse. Communication has been great throughout the entire experience from booking to arriving at our holiday home.
