There are many lovely cottages in the pretty towns and villages that make up Speyside. The north east of Scotland includes charming towns of Banff, MacDuff and Elgin. Burghead (near Lossiemouth) is popular with Hogmanay visitors as it re-enacts the ancient New Year ceremony of ‘Burning the Clavie’. The River Spey starts above Loch Laggan and finally enters the sea near Buckie – the Spey is famous for its astonishing natural beauty and great fishing. Speyside is an idyllic location for a self-catering holiday cottage where you have the freedom to explore the heather hills and snow-capped mountains. Several Which Cottage Approved holiday homes are listed on scotland-holiday-cottage.com offering holiday accommodation to suit couples, small families and large groups alike.
