Local Area

Glenrinnes is set in the Highlands, in the district of Moray, the historic county of Banffshire and very much in Whisky Country. The lodges are approximately 6 miles from Dufftown, the malt whisky capital of the world, and 7 miles from Aberlour.

Loch Morlich Both lodges are in grounds immediately below the impressive mountain, Ben Rinnes, the highest point in Moray. From the accessible summit (approx 1.5 hour walk from start point a mile from the lodges) you can see eight counties on a clear day, plus the Moray Firth coast. From both lodges there are also gloriously expansive views across the Glen to the Corriehabbie Hills. Wildlife is in abundance here.

The lodges are also on the doorstep of the Cairngorms National Park, Britain’s largest national park which has six of Scotland’s seven tallest mountains, lochs with beaches and watersports and an Arctic Tundra. If skiing or mountainbiking is your thing, three centres offer both in the park, the Lecht, Aviemore and Glenshee.

The Glenfiddich Distillery Still HouseWe have a multitude of single malt whisky distilleries within a 25-mile radius. Notable names include Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, Aberlour and Macallan, however there are far more worth exploring, many with visitor centres to visit and perhaps sample a dram (or two!).

The Moray Firth coastline is less than three-quarters of an hour away, with pristine white sandy beaches lasting for miles, with unexplored coves and surprises along the way.

Mountain or coast, walking or skiing, biking or cycling, whisky or wildlife, fishing or food, Scotland’s heritage is literally on your doorstep!
