Situated beside the river Spey, Cragganmore House is perfectly placed for lovers of golf, whisky, fishing and the great outdoors. Explore local attractions like Ballindalloch Castle, Knockando Woolmill, the Strathspey Steam Railway and Johnstons Cashmere Visitors Centre.

Having been used as a farmhouse and retirement home, Cragganmore House has been returned to how it may have looked when the founder of Cragganmore distillery, John Smith, had it as his family home.

Award-winning, resident chef, Tony Allcott, and his wife, Helen, have owned and run Cragganmore House since 2000. Together, they provide friendly hospitality and culinary delights in luxurious and historic surroundings, where attention to detail is second-nature. For that extra-special visit, why not enquire about Tony's Cookery Demonstrations?
Every room is beautifully appointed, while the piece de resistance must be The Turret Room, which is particularly suitable for romantic weekends.

The Private House Stay's Guide


The River Spey is Scotland's second longest river. The upper part, Strathspey, is equally famous for its hiking, skiing and watersports. The lower part of the valley comprises the famous Malt whisky trail. There are more malt whisky distilleries in this small area than in any other part of the country, including Glenlivet and Glenfiddich. There is some fine walking along the 45-mile Speyside Way, which runs from Spey Bay south to Tomintoul. At the mouth of the Spey you find the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society wildlife centre set on a 450 hectare nature reserve.
