Elgin, Moray, Scotland
Do you fancy a peaceful holiday in the countryside to relax and unwind? Then the kestrel cabin is the place to be as it nestles on the edge of a 5 acre woodland and yet it is only 4 miles from the county town of Elgin. A hot tub has just been installed on decking within the secluded garden.

Many species of wildlife can be observed from this peaceful setting. The cabin has panoramic views facing south from the french windows. A lochan with picnic area is visable with easy access through a gate to the field.

For dog lovers, the tranquility of the log cabin, surrounded by breathtaking scenery,makes walking your pet around Springburn an absolute joy.
This cabin was awarded an overall excellent 4 stars from Visitscotland in February 2017. We are delighted to have been given an exceptional 5 stars in the management efficiency section...

Our second stay at Kestrel. The location is fantastic, the facilities are ample for what we need. It is the ideal place to get away from everything. The secure garden is perfect for our dogs and children. There is so much to do in the area that we have already booked for our third year. Sheila and Sandy are great...
