About this property

Part of the stunning Gordon Castle Estate, the delightful, dog-friendly Courtyard Cottage offers the perfect base to begin a relaxing retreat among the serene Scottish Highlands. The understated cottage features simple, but elegant decor and plenty of floorspace for furry friends to stretch out, making it ideal for four-legged guests. The cosy Courtyard Cottage also offers pleasant views of the estate’s sizable walled gardens, which span over eight acres of vibrant greenery. With roots dating back to the 17th Century, the walled garden is one of the oldest in the country and couldn’t be more perfect for a peaceful stroll. You’ll love the bustling bushes, vibrant flowers, and espaliered trees that populate the garden, providing plenty of rare plants for nature lovers to sniff out. Canine companions are welcome to join you in the garden, and there’s even a play area for youngsters to enjoy. Following a leisurely morning spent exploring the gardens, stop in at the delightful café for al fresco dining with your hound before heading out into the scenic Scottish Highlands for breathtaking views and wonderful woodland walks.

Dine with Your Dog

Four-legged guests can stick to their regular eating routines thanks to the well-equipped kitchen, which provides everything you’ll need to whip up delicious meals with ease. As a bonus, the pleasant village of Fochabers, where you can purchase fresh, local produce and groceries, sits just over the road. For al fresco dining with your hound, head to the Walled Garden Café, which serves up a range of tasty dishes from its seasonal menu. Enjoy a hearty burger, classic sandwiches, fresh soup, or traditional fish and chips. Best of all, the café uses ingredients grown in the garden itself, ensuring that your meal is as fresh as it is delicious!

Bow wow factor
