This modern, detached family holiday home is surrounded by wonderful views. The interior is welcoming, well laid out and extremely cosy with full oil central heating and double glazing with a wood-burning stove in the living area. The living room and main bedroom have arched full-length windows that open to front patios and hill views. The property is strategically situated for a wide range of outdoor activities. Running alongside the river (150 yards) is the site of the old Speyside railway now part of the Speyside Way, a delightful long distance walk running from the Moray coast to Aviemore. There are many other great walks for all abilities. Trout and salmon fishing (permit only) can be arranged on the Rivers Avon and Spey. There is a 9-hole 18-tee golf course 1 mile away at Ballindalloch with superb courses at Grantown-on-Spey, Nairn and Lossiemouth less than an hour away. Wildlife enthusiasts will have a chance to see the famous ospreys at Boat of Garten and Moray Firth dolphins. Otters are often seen at Loch Spynie and golden eagles in the Findhorn Valley. The surrounding pinewoods are home to red squirrels, crossbills and crested tits. Visit the fairytale Ballindalloch Castle (2 miles) or the ruins of Drumin Castle and its walled garden. Travel a short distance north to sample the wonderful sandy beaches of the Moray Firth around Lossiemouth and Nairn. The malt whisky trail starts close by, with Cragganmore Distillery (tours April to October) less than one mile from the house. Ski resorts at Cairngorm (34 miles) and the Lecht (22 miles) are easily accessible. Co-op and deli at Aberlour (9 miles), large supermarkets in Elgin (25 miles) and Inverness (47 miles).

Customer Reviews of Speybridge, nr Grantown On Spey, - Sleeps 8
1st comment: Excellent location for walking or visiting NE corner of Scotland. March 2012.
2nd comment: Far more spacious than the photographs show, a real home from home. Oct 2011.
3rd comment: A wonderfully appointed, comfortable house in a great, quiet location close to the Spey Valley Way and numerous other attractions. Something for everyone here. Everything was in tip top order and well equipped for both winter and summer stays. March 2011.
4th comment: Loved the space, location although isolated suited our requirements for our holiday. Brouchure said initial logs and kindling provides but caretaker informed us only kindling. Tv worked but everything was backed to front. Very strange watching weather with aberdeen on the left. Overall a lovely house in a beautiful location. Nov 2010.
5th comment: A very well stocked house everthing you could possibly need, just a pity about being unable to connect to mobile phone services and internet. July 2010.
6th comment: The property was very nice, clean, close to the Speyside Way (which was why we were there)had excellent accessories (including bird seed!), had 4 bedrooms and ample toilets for all 8 people staying in the property. Good parking facilities. July 2010.
7th comment: Top quality accommodation, well decorated and extremely clean, the photos do not do the warmth of the place justice. Every bed was incredibly comfortable. There were heaps of useful things, books, bird feed seeds, videos, guides and dvds. Lovely walk along the Speyside way, friendly people. We used it as a base for skiing and whilst a little way, was still very convenient for The Lecht and Aviemore. The rooms are much more spacious than the pictures indicate. Feb 2010.
