See and Do

With beautiful scenery there are several marked walks and we are just off famous hiking routes such as the Speyside way. On good sunny day it’s worth a walk-up Ben Rinnes which is the highest peak in Moray and can be seen from the cottages. Just up the road there is also the Glenlivet Hill Trek that offers off-road tours over the Glenlivet estate.

The Glenlivet estate has the Glenlivet Mountain Bike trails just down the road near Tomitoul and cycle hire is available. We also have a couple of bikes than can be used when staying at the cottages.
