Ben View is a delightful old croft which has been in the same family for over 60 years. It retains much of its original charm while benefitting from updated and modern amenities. This charming detached cottage is set in a stunning, rural location approximately 4 miles from Fochabers. Ben View has 360° views for miles and miles, with views of the forest, which is owned by the Forestry Commission, from the front and hill views from the back, showing you the best of the Scottish scenery.

The cottage is surrounded by fields which are home to cows in the summer months. Due to this, please keep pets on leads, however the cottage benefits from two gardens, one of which is fully enclosed, perfect for dogs and children alike. Due to its lovely location, the property is ideal for families, as well as golf enthusiasts with a number of courses nearby.

Ben View is right in the centre of the Scottish Whisky Trail, with several of the main distilleries within easy reach. Forest walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep, or head out and visit the picturesque Spey Bay, 3 miles, where there is the Scottish Dolphin Centre, a fantastic place to visit at any time of the year. The nearest town of Elgin is just under 8 miles away, and Inverness is within easy reach for a day trip. Beach 11 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.

    Beautifull cottage. tranquil setting the perfect place to realx and unwind. Open the door of the cottage and you hear nothing, no cars, no roadworks, no sirens etc. The perfect place to de stress from daily living. The cottage itself was well laid out comfortable and spacious. This is the first time the "Murdochs" have let the cottage and they have done an excellent job. The only drawback was something or somewhere to dry wet clothes. This wouldnt have been a problem if we hadnt stayed at the time of probably the worst weather for months. Maybe going forward a tumble dryer or kitchen maid in the bike shed would be the answer for rainy days. Albeit one of the nicest, cosiest cottages we have ever stayed in. Well done again
