Cawdor Estate - Achniem Cottage
Achneim Cottage. Accommodates up to 2 people. Whether you want to whisk your other half away for your anniversary or fancy a spontaneous summer weekend away, there’s nowhere better to rekindle romance than Achneim Cottage.
Once a gamekeeper’s cottage, now an undisturbed hideaway with views of farmland out of every sash window. Natural light seeps into every room and there’s plenty of space for two.
Easter escape, summer trip, or winter weekend away – you’ll always be greeted by impressive views of the Moray Firth coastline, the Black Isles and beyond. From grand armchairs in the living room to the paintings on the bedroom walls, we’ve added thoughtful touches to help you relax. Forget drinking your morning coffee while you do a million other things – sit back on the garden bench and lap up the Scottish sun.
After a visit to Elgin Cathedral or even white water rafting in Cairngorms National Park, try a delicious pie from Bruce Clark butchers and sip on Scottish malt whisky.
