Sonas Cottage is situated less than a mile from the estuary of the River Spey, and is a wonderful place from which to enjoy the scenery and wildlife of this beautiful area of Scotland. "Sonas" is the Gaelic word for peace and quiet, and the property certainly lives up to its name, offering peaceful and relaxing self-catering accommodation for up to six people.

The property is located in Garmouth, a small former fishing village on the east coast of Moray near Fochabers and close to the Leri Nature Reserve. The village has its own hotel, shop, bowling green and 18 hole golf course, and the beach is only a short walk away. The county of Moray is known as the Scottish Riviera as it gets very little rain and has a warmer and more gentle climate than most other parts of the UK. There are miles of sandy beaches, rocky coves, forests, mountains, lochs and pretty fishing villages, including the village of Pennan - the set of the film Local Hero. There are a number of castles and distilleries to visit in the area, and the famous Whisky and Historic Castle Trails can take you on a journey of discovery.

Moray is a wildlife lover's dream. The Moray Firth boasts its own resident dolphin population which can be spotted all year round - you can see dolphin from the beach or take a boat trip out to see them close up. From May each year, osprey can be seen fishing for salmon from the sea, both at Spey Bay nature reserve and further down the Spey River. Hundreds of migrating birds as well as otter, seals, eagles and whales can also be spotted throughout the year. This holiday cottage in Moray is ideal for a birdwatching holiday in Scotland.

Sonas Cottage is also ideally situated if you are looking for a walking holiday in Scotland as it is close to the start of the Speyside Way, a way-marked trail covering nearly 100 miles through Moray. Cycling is easy from the cottage - the National Cycle Route is signposted, taking you through lovely forests and pretty Moray fishing villages. The property is also a great location for golf lovers, as Moray has more golf courses than any other county in the UK - many are just a few minutes drive from the cottage.
