Vacation Rental Description
Originally a gamekeeper's cottage, Easter Duiar has been substantially extended to provide excellent self-catering holiday accommodation in Speyside for 2–12 people.
Located in one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland, this wonderful highland home is in the heart of Speyside on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park, just 8 miles from Grantown-on-Spey and provides an ideal base for exploring the Scottish highlands and the Moray Firth coast.
Whether you are looking to enjoy the many exciting outdoor pursuits nearby or are just searching for somewhere to put your feet up and enjoy wonderful highland views and stress free living, then Easter Duiar will hopefully be the place for you.
This is a self contained stone cottage with an open plan comfortable seating area and kitchen with dining table. There is also a separate shower room. It has been redeveloped with a modern twist, combining the cosiness of the thick walls of the original building with modern furnishings and a hi tech surround sound cinema system. It is a great place to get away from the hustle of the main house or to send the children to when things get slightly too noisy to bear! It can also be treated as a visit to the cinema by taking the short walk between the two buildings on an evening.
There is also a pool table and a small multi games table (table soccer, table hockey etc) plus a selection of books and board games in the bothy, so there should always be something to do on a rainy day.
