About Suzanne & Dougie McIntyre

We both moved to Moray for work reasons originally and then realised the beauty of living in the area. The people are very friendly and welcoming and there is a wide range of activities and facilities in the area. We originally lived in the historic fishing village of Burghead until we commenced building Birchbrae in 1999 ourselves. Work brought us back to Glasgow however we don't intend to let go of Birchbrae and very much miss living there full time.

Suzanne & Dougie McIntyre purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Suzanne & Dougie McIntyre chose Elgin

Our heart is in Moray. The pace of life in Moray is fantastic. Within a few minutes you can be walking along golden sands, or lovely forests or do lunch and shopping in the heart of Elgin. Birchbrae is ideal for commuting to the main towns whilst living in the peace and quiet on the edge of a forest. Most fishing villages, towns, places of interest are within 20 - 60 mins drive from the cottage. The cottage itself is close to Ben Aigan, the monster mountain bike trails and the Speyside Way.

What makes this cottage unique

Our 1 acre garden is mostly forest with garden to the front. The cottage overlooks fields and to the forest covered hills towards Elgin. The sunsets are fantastic. The best thing to do on a sparkling clear frosty night is to sit in the toasty warm outdoor hot tub, watching the stars. Enjoy the rest of the evening at the log fire. After a days site seeing relax with your favourite tipple at the kitchen table while someone else makes dinner or enjoy a summers evening walk watching for deer and other wildlife on the farm track. The kids love playing in the garden building dens in the woods or checking out wildlife.

Lovely setting

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful house in a lovely quiet setting overlooking the countryside. We felt as though we had a proper relaxing break away from it all. The hot tub is an added bonus and it was lovely to be in the warm water watching the birds and taking in the views. Well equipped and within easy reach of Keith by car. The Cairngorms are not too far away and the coast is only a short drive away with Spey bay for the dolphins. The owners are lovely people, and I was reluctant to leave a review as I don't want too many people to know about this place as it is a jewel in holiday lettings. To top it off our dog was allowed along too and there is a utility room where he slept soundly and in warmth. Plenty of room for a large family. Thankyou for a lovely stay and will definately stay again.
