About the neighbourhood
Cromdale is a small village located in the spectacular Cairngorms National Park. The village features extensive views over Strathspey and the surrounding valleys. Several beautiful and dramatic hikes can be accessed within minutes walk of the property, including the famous Speyside way and the Angach woods. The house is also on the Malt Whiskey Trail and is within ten minutes walk of a working gin distillery. The nearest town is Grantown-on-Spey, a five minute drive or one hour walk away, where you can find a range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The Hazels is located within The Cairngorms National Park and is about half an hours drive from two ski resorts.
Getting around
We recommend you bring a car to The Hazels as the public transport is limited. There is a bus stop near the house but services are infrequent. There is parking available for three cars.
