Two holiday lets sleeping 4 and 12Easter Duiar was originally a gamekeeper's cottage and has been extended to provide beautiful self-catering accommodation in Speyside for 2 to 12 guests. Set in the heart of Speyside - one of the most lovely parts of Scotland, this wonderful highland retreat is on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park. It is also only 8 miles from Grantown-on-Spey which makes it an ideal base for those wishing to explore the Highlands and the coastline of the Moray Firth.
There are many outdoor pursuits to be found nearby including windsurfing, canoeing, skiing, golf, quad biking, horse riding and of course, walking or cycling. There are also many castles, gardens, potteries and distilleries within easy reach. Less than 1 hour's drive away there are some stunning sandy beaches and colourful harbours where dolphins and porpoises can sometimes be seen off the coast. At Easter Duiar itself, roe deer, red squirrels, numerous birds of prey and the odd stoat can often be seen.
