Cawdor Estates

Location: Scottish Highlands

Located between the granite mountain ranges of the Cairngorms and the sandy beaches of the Moray Firth, set amid a landscape of heather clad moorlands and wooded glens, the 42,000 acre Cawdor Estate is one of the great Scottish Highland estates. They pride themselves on the excellence of their traditional Highland country sports, which include superb fly-fishing upon Scotland's world renowned River Findhorn. The selection of beautiful and uniquely refurbished cottages and fishing lodge offer their guests the perfect Scottish Highlands break.

Farming remains the life blood of the Estate and country sports continue to attract many visitors to Cawdor. Over the past decade they have refurbished a number of the former estate houses, transforming them into stylish holiday lets, helping to further boost the local tourist economy.

They have six very distinctive holiday lets, ranging from a snug one-bedroomed former keeper's house to a grand hunting lodge capable of catering for over twenty guests. They are all refurbished to Lady Cawdor's exact standards, all tastefully upgraded to offer a pleasing combination of authentic old-worldly charm alongside modern facilities including free Wi-Fi.

They offer our guests peace and tranquillity without being isolated from the outside world. Cawdor village, with shop and Tavern, is a short drive away and the Estate is easily accessed from the three major Highland gateways of Iverness, Aberdeen and Perth.

Nearby can be found the popular seaside town of Nairn, famed for its dry and sunny climate, and also the attractive Highland villages of Carrbridge and Grantown-on-Spey. All around the houses lies heather clad moors, pine forests, fast flowing rivers and granite mountains which the Scottish Highlands are famed for.

The Estate offers a bespoke holiday experience; both self and fully catered options are available and our staff are happy to help you create your ideal Highland holiday. Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic weekend break, or a gathering of family and friends seeking to share a longer vacation, Cawdor Estate can provide the perfect setting for your Scottish Highlands vacation.
