With the foothills of the majestic Cairngorms to the south, the River Spey to the east and the River Findhorn to the west, Elgin is surrounded by natural beauty, and has become a visitor’s hotspot in the stunning Central Highlands.
By staying in a self-catering cottage in Elgin, you have the freedom to explore the surrounding attractions at your own leisure. Take a trip to Elgin Cathedral, affectionately named ‘The Lantern of the North.’ Its architecture, though mostly in ruins now, still has much to marvel over.
A picturesque town with great character, you’ll find the finest buildings on the High Street and notice the medieval street plan and old cobbled square. The great array of shops, restaurants and local attractions such as the popular cashmere mill 'Johnston’s of Elgin' or nearby Hopeman East beach, makes Elgin a great base for your central Highlands exploration.
