As fishers on the Craigellachie Beat for the past 18 years, we have come to know and love the village well and have formed many friendships in the local and welcoming community. Our exceptional Ghillies, our dear Joe at the Fiddichside Inn and David Brown the Butchers in Aberlour ensure that our holidays are special and memorable to us.
We have been staying at the Greenhall Gallery regularly over the past 5'years and eagerly look forward to our return next year in March, May and June. Whether as a group of 5 or 7, we know that we will receive a genuine and warm welcome from Stewart and Maggie and their daughter Lucy, for whom nothing is too much trouble. The house is quirky, cosy and full of character and with its 3 bathrooms and a kitchen where we can all sit round indulging in great food, wine and whisky, sharing anecdotes about the "one that got away" and the few who don't!! the Greenhall Gallery is the place we like to be; in the heart of a place we love with people who care.
We've made many 'whisky tour' visits to Speyside over the years, but this cottage is definitely our preference. It's ideally located near the river Spey with its beautiful scenery and within walking distance of some excellent whisky bars. Comfortable accommodation, with plenty of room for everyone, and always a very warm welcome from the owners. Always a bit sad to go home at the end of the week as it's so easy to feel at home there.
Comfortable and homely cottage accommodation.. so easy to step in and feel right at home in Craigellachie. Easy parking and unloading.
Short walk to Highlander whisky bar, Craigellachie Hotel whisky bar and Copper Dog bar, and the Fiddichside Inn. A few minutes walk to Telford's bridge on the Spey. The 65-mile Speyside Way runs along the river just behind the house; walk down to Aberlour, or 18 miles North to Spey Bay on the coast.
Ideal base for touring the Speyside region and the beautiful Moray Firth. So many whisky distilleries nearby in Rothes, Dufftown, Aberlour, and around Speyside.
We've stayed here four times for our annual whisky trips, and we're booked again for next year! But even without the whisky, we'd return to this lovely and peaceful part of Scotland.
