This spacious holiday property, set over 3 floors and furnished with antiques, is a wing of Brodie Castle, a 16th-century tower house which is set in 175 acres of parkland. The original castle was built in 1567, but after coming under attack in 1645, parts of it were destroyed. Today, the castle is filled with art and antiques, including French furniture, Chinese porcelain, 19th-century English watercolours and early 20th-century works. There is also an impressive library which contains around 6000 volumes. Guests have access to the extensive grounds and can explore the many woodland walks or observe the varied wildlife, including red squirrel, roe deer, pine marten, hare and badgers. For bird watchers, there are 2 bird hides situated next to the pond. Also on site is a tea room/shop, picnic area and a children’s play area. For the more active visitor, there are plenty of activities available in the local area. A number of golf courses can be found nearby, including the championship golf courses at Nairn Dunbar and Royal Dornoch. Walking and cycling trails can be found at Culbin Forest, the Dava Way and Speyside Way long distance routes are within easy reach, and boat fishing can be enjoyed at Blairs Loch, Forres or Lochindorb.
