Family run farm in rural Aberdeenshire offers a relaxing holiday experience for those looking for peace and tranquility.

A vintage rail carriage makes a fun and romantic alternative accommodation with panoramic views of the Moray Firth from its hilltop location. It offers privacy, charm and character. A woodburner will help you keep cosy inside and will help you cook too and there is also a single gas stove for making a quick cuppa! There are well-equipped cupboards with all you could need for your stay.

There is a sumptuous double bed (with a small single bunk at the end) plus a shower room (with water heated on the gas ring or stove) and a unique cable reel composting toilet a few steps away, or a vintage night potty inside for nights you don't want to venture out.

The water comes from the property's own spring and is good for cooking, but you may wish to bring your own drinking water. There is no electricity so a good opportunity to leave those gadgets behind. There is a selection of lanterns and candles and a cool box with fresh ice packs every day.

The view is fabulous, good for dolphin spotting and on a clear day you can count the Sutherland hills on the other side of the water. Games, cards and magazines are supplied for your entertainment. Think simplicity, think lazy mornings under the covers gazing out to sea. You will long remember the sound of the cows grazing around you, the skylarks singing above you and the wild rugged coastline of the Moray Firth. Alternatively take a day trip to the stunning Cairngorms, the largest National Park in the UK. Here you can enjoy walking, cycling, playing golf, visiting castles and even a bungee jump!

A 2-night minimum stay and 10% discount for stays of 4 nights or more.
