Elgin might have a hard, stony appearance when you look at its architecture, but there’s an altogether gentler side that makes this Moray town famous. In fact, very soft indeed – as soft as cashmere. This industry of luxury textiles is still apparent, with your very own stone house being just an eleven-minute walk from Elgin Mill. After purchasing a cosy jumper to see you through the Scottish winter, get comfy in this traditional home. Arrive in style with a private airport transfer arranged by your host, followed by a fridge full of goodies to get you started. Pour a tumbler of whisky and start exploring this vast home. With two lounges where you can put your feet up, you’ll be kept in the lap of luxury. We love the clean, minimalist interiors, with whites and light greys dominating the colour scheme. Nods to Scottish heritage come through with tartan throws in the bedrooms, but there’s a distinctly modern feel throughout. On rainy days, play chess in the sunroom. On bright afternoons, enjoy a picnic in the garden or patio. And on chilly nights, soak in the clawfoot tub after a homecooked meal from your private chef.

About Moray

Home to the Speyside whisky belt and a stretch of rugged coastline, the highland region of Moray is Scotland distilled to its core.
