A former church converted into B&B - close to the Grampian Highlands & the sea at the Moray Firth in midst Malt Whisky Country.

'Parrandier', Bed and Breakfast within The Old Church of Urquhart is found at the heart of the area known as The Laich of Moray. The Laich lies in the shelter of the Grampian Highlands and is well-known for its dry and sunny climate. It is better than ever after a refurb in 2019.

The converted church dates back to 1843 and is a B-listed building. Conceived in the perpendicular style of James Gillespie Graham it is situated in a superb rural location 5 miles from Elgin.
