About this property

Part of the gorgeous Gordon Castle Estate, the delightful, dog-friendly Garden Cottage is perfect for pooches seeking rest and relaxation amongst the serene surrounds of the Scottish Highlands. The cottage features simple, charming decor and provides ample floor space for four-legged guests to stretch out and play. Best of all, the cosy cottage overlooks the estate’s stunning walled garden, one of the largest and oldest in the country with roots dating back over 200 years! Revitalised by award-winning garden designer Arne Maynard, the walled garden is perfect for a peaceful stroll with your canine companion. 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, and younger family members can make use of the play area! 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 alfresco 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

Spanning over eight acres, the vibrant walled garden is the perfect location for furry friends to enjoy their morning walk, and the stunning Scottish Highlands are right on your doorstep, offering endless opportunities for a revitalising stroll.
