The Dalmigavie Estate lies deep in the Highlands of Scotland, in the remote and empty glen of the River Findhorn.
The valley floor is over a thousand feet above sea level, and the surrounding hills soar to over 2,500 feet. Fishing for salmon and trout is available in the River Findhorn or in the small stocked loch.
There are several well-known golf courses within easy reach; Aviemore and the Cairngorm Mountains National Park are about thirty minutes away to the south and Inverness, with rail and air links, is forty minutes to the north.
Dalmigavie is the perfect place for a family holiday. The main house overlooks the river and is spacious and comfortable. The large kitchen has an Aga cooker; the house sleeps up to fifteen people, and it is available during the months of May to July – the season when northern Scotland is at its best with long, bright days and very short nights.
The house is self-catering, but the housekeeper, Lorna Paton, comes in to clean and tidy as required. She and David, her husband, look after everything on the estate and live a hundred yards away.
