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 Walker Shortbread made right here in the village. Anglers might stroll across the Alice Litter Park for some fly fishing on the Spey (Great value day and week permits are available in the village). This truly is somewhere to relax and take things easy; everything you need is here. 50 distilleries, castles, fishing, walking, golf, skiing, water sports, beaches - all within a 10-40 min drive.More

They cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice. No reason at all given, despite booking.com requesting a reason. We booked 4 months in advance. Absolutely appalling ‘service’ - avoid at all costs.

About the neighbourhood
Moray is blessed with a favourable climate. Sheltered from the wet weather and midges of the west coast, the cold winds and sea mists of the North Sea, the area enjoys a dry, sunny and relatively mild climate, ideal for recreational activities. The surrounding countryside is excellent for a wide range of leisure activities, sports, visitor attractions, country shops and quality restaurants. Whisky Trail Speyside is an area renowned for its Whisky, with numerous distilleries throughout the region and the 70-mile long Malt Whisky Trail follows the River Spey through the northern foothills of the Grampians in Scotland. The area also holds a fun annual Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival each year. Aberlour Distillery is located on this famous trail and open to visitors. The Balvenie Distille...
