Only 3 miles from Elgin this 150 year old isolated, stone building is decorated to a high standard with a modern country feel. Set, within Scottish greenbelt, this is the perfect place for you, your family and pet to take a relaxing break, away from others.

Lots of great walks, bike trails, golf courses, distilleries and many historical sights.

We highly subsidise a local, professional company, who use hospital grade cleaning to clean between every stay.

See 'The Space' for more info.

The space
Our 150 year old croft is a delightful highland home set amidst beautiful scenery. Get away from the busy world ... reconnect and feel renewed, enjoy the views all around the croft and breathe in the fresh Scottish air.

Romantic, secluded and fabulous for families or small groups. Just as fitting for single or a couple looking for some quiet rejuvenation.

THE CROFT, first and foremost, it is a holiday home, a calming retreat, a place of rejuvenation and celebration ....therefore, the order of the day is comfort, warmth, minimum fuss and most importantly authentic to the Scottish Highland living experience. We are proud to say the croft offers you luxury accommodation and furnishings while giving you a relaxed style and warmth of the home environment - often not found in holiday rentals.

As we are pet friendly, all the floors are wooden or tiled, some original and some new, and the furniture is leather. This is paramount when people visit that do not have pets, or who have slight allergies as one would never know pets stay there.

The interior design is authentic to the Highlands and respectful of the croft's character. It has been lovingly renovated and designed by me, I come from a luxury fashion industry background and this is reflected in the selection of exceptional furnishings and finishes to make your stay special. Much thought has been put into anticipating your needs, providing warmth and comfort but also keeping it practical for holidays, pets and Highland life. I have selected beautiful pieces and local products such as lovely Johnson's of Elgin fabrics in the living room and an antique, solid oak church corner pew in the kitchen.

The croft was renovated in 2016 -2018 and features a large farmhouse kitchen, which has everything you need to make great homemade meals, including a double oven and a large table to bring everyone together. The kitchen is solid oak with a tiled floor and the lighting has been designed so it is bright when cooking but warm and cosy when eating.

The living room features an old fashioned wood burning stove, which can also be used as on open fire. A large 4 seater leather settee, a fitted seat in the window above the radiator with various other eclectic seating and a warm oak wood floor. There is a 42" TV with a Chromecast and a Blueray player.

The bathroom has been designed with luxury in mind. There is a large powerful shower, a local piece of Elm has been polished to house the sink and the wallpaper of doves and squirrels adds an touch of fun.

All the bedrooms have double beds with luxurious feather quilts and pillows with white/cream cotton linen, two have old painted wooden floors.

There are traditional yet modern cast iron radiators in all the rooms to continue the modern country feel.

The croft has wired smoke detectors, carbon Monoxide detectors, gas, electric and energy performance certification and a Nest to control the heating.

Outside we have plenty of parking and a well enclosed garden, to the back, so your dog will be safe at all times. There is a patio area and bench seating around a chimenia. There are two horses in the field next door and if you are lucky you may see deer in the field in the early mornings. There is a resident barn owl that can often be seen sitting on a post by the side of the road and is heard tooting at night.

Guests have sole access to the whole property, there is an free standing workshop to the back of the drive that has been converted into a bejou rental, this will be available for public bookings from October 2021. The access is away and secluded from the croft and does not over look the croft or the garden.

We are 1 mile from extensive woodland walks, 3 miles from major supermarkets, open 24 hours (even on Sundays!) and only 5 miles from beautiful sandy beaches where you can walk for miles & miles, enjoy the wildlife and breathe in the fresh Scottish country air.

You will be left on your own to enjoy the peace and quite of this home from home. I am always contactable through Airbnb and I have a wonderful handyman and suburb, local, cleaning company that are on hand should they be needed.

Where you’ll be

Mosstowie, Scotland, United Kingdom

Set in the countryside. Very likely to see buzzards and deer. Often a barn owl on a fence post. Horses in the fields behind. On a clear night in the winter the possibility of seeing the northern lights.
Findhorn is just a drive away, with the Foundation and an amazing Bakery and resturant where you can get vegetarian and Gluten free food.

Coronavirus - To allay any fears, we have always used an excellent local, professional cleaning company & they are now also disinfecting between guests. The croft is located well away from people. Tesco, Asda. Lidl and Aldi deliver groceries here and there is an digital key box, so you can let yourselves in with no contact with others. Please continue on to read about the croft and the space provided for isolation, relaxation, romantic getaways or family holidays. Thank you, Bea.
