A warm Highland welcome awaits you at St Orans, a lovely little detached property for two, set in peaceful rural surroundings and close to the banks of the River Findhorn. The cottage, redecorated in early 2019, makes a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful part of the Highlands of Scotland or to just relax and unwind in. Accessed by a track, it is surrounded by woodlands with a unique habitat which supports a large variety of wildlife and birdlife. This remote property also has access to 3G internet on all mobile phones and tablets.

The area is renowned for its excellent selection of walks, mountain bike trails, horse riding, golf and fishing along with a variety of water sports including white water rafting, canoeing and boat trips. Hopefully you will catch sight of the Moray Firth bottlenose dolphins on your boat trip. The Moray coastline has been voted amongst the top 20 coastal destinations in the world, and with its quaint coastal villages along with miles of unspoilt white sandy beaches, it is a well deserved award.

Only 30 miles away is the Cairngorms National Park and close to two major ski centres – the Lecht and Cairngorm, where you can take part in snow boarding, skiing and climbing in some spectacular mountain ranges. Take a trip along the only malt whisky trail in the world with two of the distilleries close by – the Dallas Dhu and Benromach.

Slightly further afield you can visit the Highland capital of Inverness, with its wide selection of shops, restaurants, museums, theatre and leisure facilities. Visit Loch Ness and the ruins of Urquhart Castle or some of the other historical sites including Culloden Battlefield and Fort George, along with Brodie and Cawdor Castles. So much to see and do for all ages. Beach 14½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 4½ miles.

Guest Comments

“Beautiful location, well equipped cottage, very helpful hosts.”

Duncan, October 2019

“A lovely cottage in a quiet location but not far to go for shops for food shopping etc. A great location for walking, many walks from the doorstep. The wood burner stove was excellent and logs were supplied. A very comfortable cottage, well appointed and would recommend.”

John, September 2019

“My wife and I were after a quiet rural location for a holiday and St Orans was exactly what we were looking for. The cottage and location were beautiful with plenty of walks round about for the dog. The owners of the cottage were very nice and welcomed us on our arrival, making sure we knew that they were available should we need anything. Even the herd of cows in the field behind the cottage were welcoming and came to seethe dog everyday. I would highly recommend this property if you are after a quiet peaceful holiday.”

David, July 2019

“A lovely cottage in a peaceful location, nice fresh flowers inside, stunning walks from the house along the river gorge nearby, and easy access to the local area with lots to see and do.”

Guy, July 2019

“This was our second stay at St Orans. The interior has been re decorated and upgraded with new furniture and an excellent wood burning stove which will keep the cottage warm in any weather. The owners are close-by and very friendly and helpful. The facilities in the cottage are first class. We take our dog and the area surrounding the cottage is completely fenced off with plenty of good walks on the door step being in a rural location. Amenities within about a 10 minute or so drive and this whole area has loads to do without spending hours in the car. Would definitely recommend.”
