Full Description

Set just one mile above the village of Aberlour, this delightful 17th-century stone one bedroom cottage is a comfortable, single-storey, detached accommodation, with its own walled garden, rockery and lawn. Located in the grounds of the owners’ home, but completely independent with private access gate and parking. It is accessed by a good farm track and has easy walking access to Aberlour village.

The cottage features a double bedroom (with double bed and Victorian fireplace), open plan living / fitted kitchen area with wood-burning stove in granite fireplace.

There is a bathroom / W.C. with over-bath power shower and another separate W.C. Also a separate utility / boiler room with washing machine / tumble drier.

Cycling and walking may be enjoyed right from the door, on forest trails, local hills and river paths.

The cottage is ideally placed for easy reach of Ben Rinnes, Convals, Cairngorm national park and the Speyside Way.

The Moray coast (for dolphin, seal and seabird spotting trips), Macduff marine aquarium, Huntly Falconry centre and some of Scotland’s finest castles are also just a short drive away.

There are good golf courses close by (Dufftown, Ballindalloch, Rothes) and fishing permits for the River Spey are available in Aberlour.

For the whisky connoisseur, there are several interesting distilleries nearby (including the local Aberlour distillery) as well as excellent whisky shops in nearby villages (Dufftown & Tomintoul for example).

As the cottage is located away from the village, on a clear night there may be very dark skies…a bonus for stargazers.

Aberlour itself has a well-stocked Co-op supermarket, chemist, delicatessen (the reknowned ‘Speyside Larder’), as well as a health centre, dentist and several excellent eateries and bars.

Historical Connection

McKerron Cottage is the ancestral home of William Garrow, the pioneering 18th Century lawyer featured in the BBC TV period drama series Garrow's Law. Garrow introduced the principal of 'innocent until proven guilty', and was a major influence in the development of the modern British justice system.
