There is a separate dining room – ideal for long, leisurely dinners with friends or family. The well appointed bathroom is downstairs. The two cosy bedrooms (1 x double and 1 x twin) can be found upstairs. Kirktoun has a good sized, private garden; part of which is enclosed – useful for containing children or the dog!

You might be lucky enough to spot some of our resident red squirrels which live in the woods behind. The patio area is great for summer BBQs or sipping wine whilst watching the sun set on those long, light summer evenings we are blessed to get up here in Moray. There is also a fire bowl for our guests to use to keep them warm whilst perhaps watching the stars or having a wee nightcap.

Duffus Estate has a network of paths, many of which can be accessed directly from the gate at the bottom of Kirktoun’s garden.

Delightful Cottage
December 2021

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your delightful cottage. It really was a home from home. The log fire was so cosy and welcoming at night and the garden was perfect for the dogs. You will definitely be seeing us again!

Fabulous time
November 2021

We just wanted to say we had a fabulous time staying in Kirktoun Cottage. You can easily see that the cottage is very well cared for. It was immaculate and didn’t disappoint. We enjoyed going for a walk around the castle and visiting the wonderful beaches around Elgin.

I’ve happily recommended your different accommodations and the area.

Thank you once again.

Lovely home in a beautiful area
October 2021

If you’re looking for a lovely clean, cozy, well equipped home from home in a beautiful location then this is it. Me, my mum, and our two little furbabies have just returned home after a wonderful stay in Kirktoun Cottage. We absolutely loved the location as it’s rural but still with easy reach of Elgin and other destinations you may wish to visit. There’s a great pub and local shop within a few minutes walk and also great walks off the back garden. We have stayed in several different places in the area but this is by far our favourite. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful Holiday
July 2021

We had another wonderful holiday staying in Kirktoun cottage last week.  Thank you so much for all of the hard work that is put into running the cottages for guests. The attention to detail is second to none and makes us feel at home. Thank you so much to for the welcome pack, it is such a kind gesture and we really enjoyed using the voucher at Kula for a coffee. The coffee was lovely. We look forward to hopefully returning again next year. 

A place where you can relax and unwind in a comfortable home from home
July 2021

The house is everything it says in the description but felt much more spacious and comfortable than I had imagined (or the photographs suggested). Our hosts were excellent, communicated promptly and made us feel very welcome. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms comfortable and the public rooms spacious. The house is light and airy (I’m sure with its central heating and a log fire it would be equally cozy in winter) and if you like being in the country but feel the need to remain in touch then the wi-fi is good. There are a dozen reasons that make this place ideal for a memorable holiday, if any of these are what you are looking for then this is a place you should seriously consider:- A place where you can relax and unwind in a comfortable home from home. A place where you feel you are in the middle of the country but have an excellent shop and pub quarter of a mile away. A place where there is space inside and out to relax and enjoy A place where kids can wander free and explore the extensive grounds and estate on their own without you having to worry. A place where some of the biggest and most beautiful sandy beaches in the country with hardly a soul on them are all yours within five minutes in a car (you can walk to the nearest!). A place where some of the best golf, fishing and sailing in the UK are on your doorstep. A place in Scotland with its own micro climate where the sun shines more and the rain falls significantly less. A place surrounded by and steeped in history. A place with access to the Highlands within 30 minutes, a large town within ten and a city within forty five. A place with easy access to the most famous whisky distilleries on the planet. A place where the roads are quiet, cycling is easy and communications are good. A place where the sky is big and the sunsets amazing.
