Together with three other charming holiday cottages (UYN, SAAF and SCP), Stratinan is located within the extensive grounds of Aswanley Estate in unspoilt surroundings on the upper reaches of Glen Deveron. All are peacefully set in secluded locations, enjoying uninterrupted views across beautiful scenery and each has its own private garden. Visitors are welcome to explore the Estate grounds, where there is an abundance of wildlife. Fishing and shooting can be arranged, and safe inlets on the river offer fun paddling for children, with deeper pools for swimming.
The famous Whisky Trail is easily accessible from the properities and many of the distilleries offer guided tours and the chance to sample the local malts.
A choice of coves, sandy beaches and attractive fishing villages can be reached within a 35-minute drive of Aswanley. Golf, swimming and tennis available at Huntly (7 miles). For a change of scene, Aberdeen with its many shops, restaurants, theatres and museums is well worth a visit. Castles, museums and picturesque towns are all within easy driving distance. Falconry centre 3 miles. Salmon fishing (3-mile beat of the Deveron) by prior arrangement. Riding locally.

Customer Reviews of Straitinnan, by Huntly - sleeps 4
1st comment: Cottage was tucked away and totally private with real fires which made it extremely cosy. Views were fantastic and unspoilt- very relaxing get away. Quite central to get to various places, can recommend tour around the Glenfiddich distillary also. July 2011.
2nd comment: Beautiful setting, comfortable cottage with everything you would require. Fishing was arranged with a guillie, great success, although no fish for supper! Went dolphin spotting at Buckie, lovely beach at Cullen and a visit to the Highland Games at Forres, all in all a lovely holiday. Charming owner and very helpful staff and guillie. July 2011.
3rd comment: Tidy and clean. Kitchen equipment covered all needs. Great, warm sun room. Aug 2010.

7th comment: Living in a big city, the quiet accommodation and fresh air was excellent. June 2009.
8th comment: We absolutely loved staying at Straitinnan! The fishing was great, and being only half an hour from the coast made this a perfect base to explore some of the North East Coastal Trail. The cottage itself was wonderfully cosy, the surroundings are beautiful and we would love to go again! Staitinnan was perfect! Cosy and relaxed, set in beautiful surroundings. We found the cottage to be very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed sitting by our log fire every evening. Aug 2009.
