Conval View is a clean, modern, comfortable house enjoying elevated, panoramic views over farmland and forests towards the Conval Hills and Ben Rinnes, (the highest mountain in Moray (840mts/2500ft) with truly amazing views from its summit).
Conval View is situated a short drive from the scenic village of Aberlour (2mls) and Dufftown (4mls), the capital of Scotch whisky country.
On our doorstep, the surrounding countryside activities include hillwalking, salmon fishing, mountain biking and canoeing.
Our property is perfectly positioned for an overnight stay but why not stay a few days - cut down on that driving time! - to enable you to visit some of the many distilleries in the area (over 50 close by!), the world-famous Moray Coastal area (Voted TOP 10 in the world!) with its beautiful beaches & forests plus a visit to world-renowned cashmere manufacturer, Johnston's of Elgin then return to relax in your home-from-home in glorious Speyside.

There is plenty of FREE parking space for up to 6 cars. All we ask is that you do not obstruct the red roller garage doors!
Feel free to wander around our large garden to enjoy the superb views & fresh mountain air. Weather permitting!
NO smoking anywhere inside the property, please. Smoking is allowed outside the house just not near any windows/doors!
We regret that we are unable to accommodate pets
We have a very quiet, lovable black Cocker Spaniel called 'Charlie' He is not allowed upstairs in the guest accommodation or in the breakfast room. If you're missing your own pet, Charlie is very friendly and enjoys a bit of fuss!
Arriving back a bit late after an excellent meal and whisky tasting?
No problem at all. Just keep the noise down out of respect for our neighbours, please.
One last request: kindly check all lights in porch/hall/landing etc are turned off before you sleep. Many thanks indeed for your co-operation.
