Forres, Moray, Scotland
This is a charming cottage set in rural surroundings and overlooking the River Lossie. An open log fire is laid ready for your arrival, the beds are made with carefully ironed linen and everything we think you might need is provided. Accommodation includes one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, a cosy sitting room and a bright kitchen/dining room. A barbecue sits waiting for the summer sun to be enjoyed in the enclosed garden. A maximum of 2 dogs is allowed by arrangement.

The area has so much to offer. There are long sandy beaches along the Moray Firth, places for gentle rambling or more challenging hill walks and too many golf courses to mention! This is also castle country with Brodie Castle, Ballindalloch Castle and Cawdor Castle all within easy reach for a morning's outing and many more just a little further afield. I...

We had a wonderful week at Manse Cottage. Great location by the river Lossie. We had a very happy young fisherman even though the big one got away! Simply charming cottage, we loved the open fire and the garden was perfect for our dog. The owner was very helpful and when we had a little mishap, very understanding. We will...

About the neighbourhood
In the immediate area the old market town of Forres is a friendly and welcoming place and both it and Elgin have some interesting architecture including, in Elgin the now ruined Elgin Cathedral. It is an imposing mostly 13th Century building which was the seat of the Bishop of Moray. Elgin Museum is the oldest independent museum in the UK and home to some world famous fossils, the Dandaleith Stone and many other interesting artefacts. St Michael's Church 50 yards from the Cottage was built in 1793 where services are still held every Sunday. George Mifflin Dallas whose family originally came from the area became the Vice President of the USA and Dallas, Texas may have been named after him.

How to get there
Airport: Inverness: 25.0 km
Railway: Elgin and Forres: 15.0 km
Coming from Edinburgh take the A90 then M90 north then the A9 at Perth signed Inverness. A good place to stop for lunch and maybe a little shopping is The House of Bruar at Bruar (known locally as the Harrods of the north!). It is about an hour and a half from here. Continue on and turn right off the A9 to Grantown-on-Spey onto the A95 and continuing straight through this town you will be on the A939 to Forres where there are supermarkets and tea rooms. In Forres turn right at the Tolbooth (clock tower), go down the hill and over a small roundabout onto the B9101. This will take you through the town's outskirts and then through the village of Rafford. Do not turn off to Dallas Dhu in Rafford but continue on to the next marked junction to the right. This will take you by a countr... more
