Within easy reach are the ski slopes of the Lecht and Cairngorm, or by contrast enjoy the wonderful sandy beaches of the Moray Firth around Lossiemouth and Nairn where the famous Moray Firth dolphins can be regularly spotted. Visit the fairytale Ballindalloch Castle, 2 miles, or the ruins of Drumin Castle and its walled garden. The malt whisky trail starts close by, with Cragganmore Distillery (tours April to October) less than one mile from the house.

    "3rd visit to Saffron Lodge. Absolutely love it!!!"
    Sara ‐ 8 Jan 2020
    "The lodge was very comfortable and spacious and we enjoyed our stay. The cleanliness was poor, especially in the kitchen area which was disappointing. The bathrooms require updating as they are generally quite tired."
    Billy ‐ 26 Oct 2019
    "Spent a lovely week in Saffron Lodge. An ideal place to discover new places - lots of beautiful walks! The log fire added an extra cosy element and made relaxing, family time that little bit more special."
    Ross ‐ 23 Sep 2019
    "2 couples all aged over 70 came to Saffron Cottage to walk the Strathspey Way. (Not it all in one week). Cottage seated in a great location overlooking the river Spey. A very cosy and friendly lodge. Well laid out and comfortable. The outside of the lodge is in need of a coat of paint and parking is tight for two cars. Very well equipped with everything you could want. WiFi would be a bonus. Sorry I don't have any photographs."

    "Location was fantastic and we had a great time despite the weather. Just felt the lodge could benefit from a little TLC."
    Bob ‐ 20 Jul 2019
    "The lodge is in a quiet setting with terrific views of the hills around. No problem getting to the main tourist centres like Aviemore and Elgin. Had a great break."
    Carolyn ‐ 3 Apr 2019
    "This was a lovely cosy lodge in a fantastic location. However on arrival the lodge was freezing cold. The heating is by way of storage heaters and these need to store the previous night to provide heat the next day. As the caretaker knew the date and time of our arrival we would have hoped they would have been switched on.The cleanliness of the property was not good. The windows were filthy and so looking at the view was marred. The bathrooms were not clean, especially the showers. The oven was dirty. The dining room table/table mats were encrusted with crumbs! Superficially the place looked clean and tidy but in fact it was not. The carpet was stained and we did not go around barefoot because of this. The bin in the kitchen looked as if it had never been cleaned. We were so disappointed with the cleanliness standard because overall the lodge was perfect for what we wanted."

    "We stayed at Saffron lodge over the New Year and had an amazing stay. The lodge is very cosy and comfortable with the wonderful woodland backdrop. Perfect for us to rest and relax. A little isolated but we knew this and were happy with the location. A beautiful lodge with all amenities you could need. A welcome bottle of wine thrown in was the perfect touch on arrival."
    Victoria ‐ 22 Oct 2018
    "A lovely cottage with everything we needed. I wouldn't recommend if you don't have a car as the location is quite remote but that was exactly what we were looking for."
