Such a great find! I’m from the local area and needed somewhere near my parents to stay for Christmas. The cottage was really well appointed and James and Louise had thought of everything. Plenty of towels and spare pillows and they had even left us a Christmas card. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting Speyside. We had a great stay.
