Aberlour, Moray, Scotland
Visiting Aberlour Bolthole feels like having a break at your family's Highland countryside home. It's the perfect base for fishing, shooting, touring, relaxing and of course, exploring the Malt Whisky Trail - with the Aberlour Distillery just 500 yards down the road and the Macallan Distillery across the River Spey at the back of the cottages.

The location perfectly balances the peaceful setting behind private gardens and the convenience of having all the amenities of the vibrant Highland village Aberlour on your doorstep.

Park the car and relax away from the hustle and bustle of life, pop to the Café at the end of the garden, or amble around the corner to the well reputed ‘Mash Tun’ (one of 5 excellent local eateries/bars), and enjoy a wee dram and good food. Browse the gift shops and the gallery, sample some famous Joseph Walk...

We booked Aberlour Bolthole as part of our annual golf & whisky week and it couldn't have been better. Aberlour is a great base for this; coop, filling station, distillery and mash tun restaurant are around the corner, and the cottage has got everything you could look for. Wifi is fast, parking is never a problem. Would totally recommend it!
