 Carden holiday cottages are located in a converted stone built steading in an area of outstanding natural beauty just a few miles outside Elgin, surrounded by magnificent beaches, rambling forest walks and cycle trails, ancient castles and historic sites in the heart of Moray.


There are almost limitless leisure opportunities that include stalking and  hunting,  shooting, fishing, walking, cycling and golf. In this landscape of rushing rivers, ancient lochs and miles of empty golden beaches,  you will have the chance to catch sight of eagles and hunting birds flying overhead whilst the seas around us offer glimpses of  playful seals, leaping dolphins and even feeding whales.

With a wide range of accommodation suitable for everything from a romantic Christmas getaway  through to a great family centered holiday, Carden Holiday Cottages are wonderfully positioned for exploring all that this beautiful area of Scotland has to offer. We know you’ll agree! 

For the benefit of all of our guests, smoking is not allowed in any of our properties

It’s not by chance that Moray has recently been included in the top ten UK destination for this year or that within this region Forres and Elgin continue to be the jewels in the crown.

With a strong culture and a rich heritage rooted into the very fabric of Scotland’s history, Moray continues to attract people from across the world. Some say it is our beautiful unspoiled landscapes, our incredible range of local tasty food or the selection of Whisky distilled with the water from the very hills that surround us that bring folks. Others say it is the warmth of our people or our willingness to always stop and have a ‘blether’ on the High Street or perhaps in a coffee shop.
Whatever the reason, once you have visited we know you will keep coming back time and time again.

It’s not just the ‘romantics’ we attract to our shores as adventure wait right on your doorstep for you, for your team or for your whole family. White water rafting, wind surfing, climbing, stalking, fishing and shooting all await those seeking the high adventure. For those of us with a more ‘genteel’ disposition or perhaps with younger children there are miles upon miles of unspoiled beaches, rambling forest trails, beautiful parks and lots of open space to enjoy all within a few minutes of Carden Holiday Cottages.

Top this off with museums, galleries, theatre, festivals, international events and a wide range of wonderful accommodation to meet every need and you can see why we are proud to say Forres and Elgin have something for everyone.
