The Moray Firth is a short drive away and famous for its pod of resident dolphins and seals that sunbathe along the coast. Pretty fishing villages are dotted along the picturesque coastline and the sandy beaches of Lossiemouth are well worth a visit.

Weiroch Lodge is a truly special place to stay. It is spacious, immaculately kept and full of little extras that demonstrate the owners commitment to guest comfort. From the plush tweed sofas around the wood burner to extra long beds and designer bed-linen this immaculate deluxe property is so exceptional you won’t want to leave.
On arrival the entrance/utility room has room for coats and boots along with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The superb kitchen/dining room has large arched windows looking out over the Spey Valley with its rolling hills, forests and big skies. It would be impossible not to enjoy cooking in the well equipped kitchen and this is also a great room for bringing everyone together to eat sitting around the large antique table in comfortable cane chairs.
After a day out and about, you can sink into one of the large tweed sofas in the magnificent drawing room and catch up with the day’s activities while relaxing in front of the wood burner. Or pour a wee dram and choose a book to read from the vast selection within the antique bookcase that covers one wall. With antlers on the walls and amazing trompe l’oeil wall murals this fine room has the feel of a traditional Scottish shooting lodge.
Adjoining the sitting room, the sun room is decorated in traditional fabrics and is a great place to enjoy the tranquil surroundings and glorious views.
The bedrooms (one on the ground floor and two upstairs) have top quality beds and are beautifully furnished throughout. Two of the bedrooms have extra long continental beds which can be joined together to become superkings. Three modern, stylish en-suite bath/shower rooms all have heated towel rails and fluffy towels to add to the overall comfort of your stay at Weiroch Lodge. There are two large sofa beds and a 3ft fold-up J-bed for extra guests.
