Whitestone is situated in a commanding position with panoramic views of the Spey Valley and beyond. The property adjacent to Tormore Distillery is one of 13 distinctive cottages originally built to house the employees. Tormore was the first new distillery to be built in the twentieth century, and to this day still produces excellent malt. The buildings are architecturally quite striking and have listed building status
You will need a car! But there is plenty to do locally.
Sitting on a distillery (the former home of a distillery worker) the house makes a great base for exploring Speyside and in particular the malt whisky distilleries. The distillery is rural, but with very good road access along the A95.

We live in Bedfordshire but have a locally based caretaker. However we will supply our mobile number so there shouldnt be any issues.
We have been on Airbnb for a short time, but have been letting the house out for 6 years. Here are some reviews from other sites :
Whitestone is a very comfortable house with everything you need for a nice relaxed holiday. Lovely well equipped kitchen/dining room, cosy sitting room with wood/coal burning stove, T.V. etc., comfortable settees. We bought coal and kindling wood and lit a fire every evening, weather was dry but cool. Modern bathroom with shower over bath. Beds comfortable. Outside is a small garden and sunny court yard, a pine marten came visiting one evening. We enjoyed the holiday and visited nearby castles, also RSPB reserve at Loch Garten, saw the ospreys. Ballindalloch castle just up the road was lovely, beautiful house and gardens and river walk. Would recommend Whitestone.

We stayed in Whitestone in February 2013 and loved every second of it. This cottage is peaceful, nicely decorated and the garden is superb for wildlife - red squirrels on the bird feeders: almost guaranteed if you keep the feeders topped up! So funny to watch their antics. There is so much to do in the Cairngorms and surrounding area, even in winter. We didn't have time to do it all and will surely be back in the future.

Great stay at Whitestone for a long weekend. The house had all we needed: was in excellent condition, clean, had all the utensils and equipment for our stay, was quiet, and easy to find. Would certainly consider a return visit!

Stayed in the Whitestone cottage for a week. It was well maintained and the views where wonderful, everything that you needed was available. What made the week was the daily visit from the young red deer and his friend plus the pheasant family, along with the variety of birds. There are lots of places to visit, but you would need to stay a extra week to fit them all in had. We had a wonderful time and would stay there again. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
- We would like you to look after the house as if it were your own - and enjoy it. Sorry, no smoking
We love Scotland and the Cairngorms ,we bought this holiday home so we could spend time with our 4 legged friends. We hope that you will enjoy the area as much as we do
