large, classically beautiful country side set amidst 1500 acres, Burgie House is a welcoming and family friendly holiday house that is perfect for a large group. This much loved, large family house is traditional and welcoming with plenty of public space, including a wonderful basement billiard room and a fantastic ceilidh room â€“ a great â€œplay areaâ€ for young and old â€“ with plenty of break away space for everyone. This house is traditional and beautiful so do not expect modern furniture and fabrics but do expect warmth, antiques, charm and character. Spacious traditional bedrooms all have lovely views across the paddocks or majestic trees at the rear.
Outside, there are beautiful grounds complete with Arboretum and lochans, paddocks, natural woodlands and walking/cycling tracks as well as large lawns, BBQ areas. You can bring your own horse should you wish. Burgie can offer you field sports on the estate, catering for all or some of your meals if you prefer not to self cater and some housekeeping should you wish.
The area offers a multitude of activities for all ages with excellent beaches along the coastline, championship golf courses on the doorstep, distilleries, historic castles such as Brodie and Cawdor and battlefields such as Culloden Moor, all within easy reach.

We wanted a relaxing week away and thats what we got. Easy to venture if you have a car as its out the way of everything. Would suggest a few extra kitchen utensils be added like a tin opener and another baking tray. Amazing location would stay again.
