  • Spacious five-bedroom rural retreat perfect for family gatherings and special occasions
  • Ideal base for walkers and cyclists with trails through the unspoilt Moray countryside
  • Follow the Malt Whisky Trail to discover a new favourite tipple
  • Cast your line for excellent fishing opportunities on the River Spey
Property code: CA164

Set in 1.5 acres, with wonderful views across the Spey Valley, this five-bedroom property is ideal for large families, fishing parties or whisky aficionados seeking a peaceful base from which to explore the nearby amenities and activities.

Midway between Aberdeen and Inverness, the picturesque Victorian village of Craigellachie sits on the banks of the River Spey and is home to thriving independent stores, art galleries and welcoming pubs and restaurants. Pull on your walking boots for a day hiking the Speyside Way which runs next to the house or spend the day discovering the rugged Cairngorms National Park (23 miles). Speyside is home to almost 50 whisky distilleries, over half of the working distilleries in Scotland. Sample some of the whiskies available on a tour of The Macallan distillery in the village or experience the ancient art of coopery at Speyside Cooperage. Pedal your way through the Glenlivet Estate (15 miles) or activate the adrenalin with an off-road adventure across the estate.

Enjoying a central position in the Moray valley, your holiday home is perfectly situated to explore the glorious landscape by foot or cycle, enjoy salmon fishing in the world-famous beats along the River Spey or discover local attractions such as the Walkers Shortbread Factory and Baxter's Visitor Centre. Approached along the sweeping driveway that leads through the extensive gardens, park your car alongside the property, and enter the front door into the spacious entrance hall where there's plenty of room for walking boots and coats. There's storage for all your provisions in the generous kitchen/diner where you will find everything you need including electric oven and hob, fridge, under-counter freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer to make your stay a home-from-home. Enjoy leisurely meals at the elegant dining table overlooking the gardens as you plan your next day's adventures. After a long day of outdoor pursuits, relax into one of the comfortable sofas in the living room and watch the flickering flames in the open fireplace. Younger guests can spend time in the family room with TV and Xbox One giving the adults some peace and quiet. The five bedrooms are also on this level, all of which are named after the various rivers in the Spey catchment. Three of the bedrooms are light and airy with super king-size zip and link beds and plenty of storage space for all your belongings. The beds are dressed in distinctive local tartans giving each room a warm and individual feel. There is a further room with king-size zip and link bed and an additional cosy single with pull out trundle bed. Enjoy an indulgent soak in the free-standing tub in the spacious family bathroom that comes complete with separate shower and WC. Heading deeper into the property you will find an additional contemporary shower room with WC.

Outside, you have over 1.5 acres of secure, enclosed garden to explore. Play ball games on the lawn or spread out your blanket for an al fresco picnic. Fire up the BBQ for an early evening meal before heading into the garage games room for a table tennis tournament late into the night.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Guisachan is one of the best holiday properties we have stayed in. It was immaculately clean, and very well equipped. I dont think we have visited anywhere with a kitchen so well stocked. The gardens are stunning! They are also very safe if you have young children or a dog as they are securely fenced and gated. Couldnt recommend this property more Read morefor a relaxing holiday.

Lovely setting, the garden was coming into bloom and was an array of beautiful colours. Plenty of local wildlife around the property. The Copper Dog pub in the village is a must for food especially if you have doggies. The most dog friendly place I have eaten in. There is a boutique in Craigellachie which is a hidden gem and the hairdressers are onRead more the door step too. Only a few minutes from the Speyside Way for walks. The house was comfortable we had everything we needed whilst away from home. Hide

My family of 7 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs had a wonderful stay at Guisachan. The house was beautiful and equipped with everything we needed. The men folk enjoyed visiting the local distilleries of which there are many. We had wonderful walks in Aberlour and visited a local stately house in Ballindalloch which also had a good play area for the kiRead moreds. Had a good meal at the Mash Tun in Aberlour. Visited quite a few of the near towns, the only thing that let us down was the weather. The dogs had a brilliant time exploring the excellent garden and we even had a visit from a deer one night. A brilliant week was had by all. Hide

This was my family's first trip to Scotland (5 of us in total), so I wanted it to be a really good, relaxing experience for everyone. Craigellachie was the perfect location for this and stay in Guisachan was an absolute winner. It ticked all the boxes for everyone, I actually found myself not wanting to leave the cottage to explore the surrounding Read moreareas on most days. My daughter and I had a great time playing badminton, football and cricket with my son watching on. My wife and mum enjoyed the long walks around the property, actually the sunset views from this property are awesome, I would just spend evenings sitting outside watching the sun go down. The cottage has everything you can think of and much more. The home owner, Mr. Davies, made us feel most welcome and replied to our phone calls and text whenever we had questions. As for Craigellachie and surrounding areas, its just a lovely place. I highly recommend visiting the Highlander Inn - great food and great collection of whiskey. We also visited the Speyside Cooperage to see how casks are made, well worth a visit. Our experience Craigellachie and Guisachan was first class, it will be our go to location whenever we visit the North East of Scotland Hide
