About Craig Cottage

High quality 3 bedroom holiday cottage enjoying a secluded setting bordering the Duff House conservation area and woodland, just 2 miles from Banff and the scenic Moray coast.  This stylish holiday home was originally a folly for magnificent Duff House and was also a toll house for the Bridge of Alvah.  The immediate area abounds with wildlife such as deer, foxes, badgers, otters, pine martins, buzzards and our resident red squirrels, rabbits, pheasants and woodpeckers.

Popular activities in the local area include fishing, walking and golfing. 

Craig Cottage is excellent for keen anglers as the property is just a stone's throw away from our salmon and trout beat.  Guests staying at the property and fishing enjoy use of quad bikes during their stay to easily get to and from the fishing area.

At the property is a south facing sheltered suntrap with spacious patio area, garden furniture and barbecue.  The garden overlooking the woods and countryside.

The cottage grounds, while beautiful all year round, come alive in May and June as does the whole woodland when the rhododendron borders are in full bloom, very romantic.

Craig Cottage enjoys a tranquil peaceful setting yet is well placed for exploring beautiful Aberdeenshire and further afield the Highlands of Scotland for days out.  

Pets welcome.

Please note that when you turn off the A97 at Deer Park Farm, the cottage is 1 mile down a private single hard track road.  Please drive very carefully as this road is part of the walk from Duff House out to the Bridge and because of the beauty of this spot it regularly has walkers, and as darkness comes so do the wildlife.  Deer regularly cross to drink at the river and badgers, foxes, rabbits among others cross at times so please drive very carefully

We look forward to welcoming you to our hidden gem.
