To start planning your vacation to Killiehuntly
Just a two-hour drive north of Edinburgh is the beautiful Cairngorms National Park, home to wildlife, distilleries and castles in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Within the National Park lies Killiehuntly Farmhouse, a traditional stone building which dates all the way back to the year 1603.
Following a loving restoration, Killiehuntly now proudly displays a Danish interior décor accompanied by traditional Scottish touches - dubbed "Scandi-Scot". Think minimalist interiors, with a warm grey color scheme, wooden floors and cosy furnishings. Although Killiehuntly does not conform to the style of traditional Scottish Highland abodes, the farmhouse is comfortable, welcoming, and a real home away from home. The Farmhouse can be taken exclusively, and as such is the perfect location for a family getaway.
The four bedrooms at Killiehuntly Farmhouse are all individually styled, continuing the understated Scandinavian theme, and are simple yet extremely comfortable. With views over the surrounding fields or towards the Cairngorms, each room is a private haven, ideal for those looking to relax and really get away from it all. Killiehuntly is also home to a Hayloft, which is perfect for couples, and Geordie's Cottage which offers a secluded self-catering option for families.
Delicious home-cooked meals using fresh, seasonal ingredients are served at the dining table in the kitchen, while in the summer months it is possible to sit out in the garden with an after-dinner nightcap. There is also a library within the historic stone walls, which is the perfect place to relax with a good read.
The area surrounding Killiehuntly is bursting with natural beauty, and home to a variety of wildlife including deer, Highland cattle and even reindeer. From Killiehuntly it is easy to explore with a walk through the hills, and activities such as biking and fishing nearby can also be arranged.
There are just four bedrooms sleeping up to eight guests in Killiehuntly Farmhouse, each of which subscribes to the distinct Scandinavian style of the house, although each is individually decorated. Opposite the Farmhouse, the Hayloft is a great option for couples, while Geordie's Cottage offers complete privacy for a family.
The main Farmhouse at Killiehuntly sleeps up to eight guests in just four bedrooms. Three of the four offer en-suite bathrooms, and some have superb views towards the Cairngorms. In terms of decor, each room is fairly simple, yet stylish and comfortable.
The Hayloft is located opposite the Farmhouse, and is suitable for a couple. There is a double bed and comfortable seating area, as well as a small kitchen suitable for cooking simple meals.
Geordie's Cottage provides complete privacy for a family, sleeping up to five guests in a master double bedroom, twin bedroom and single bedroom. The cottage also has a comfortable sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and shower room.
Children under 9 years are not accepted within the Farmhouse for accommodation or meals. Children are welcome with exclusive hire of farmhouse, in Geordies Cottage and the Hayloft.
The Farmhouse at Killiehuntly serves delicious homemade meals in the dining area of the kitchen. Ingredients are harvested in the summer and autumn months, while produce is sourced from local farmers, allowing for fresh, seasonal dishes. The Hayloft and Geordie's Kitchen both have kitchen facilities for self-catering purposes.

When to go
It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.
