Hillview Cottage, Ballindalloch, Glenlivet, Cairngorms National Park

Hillview is a wonderful cottage to enjoy with fantastic views of Glenlivet and the surrounding countryside. The cottage was part of the Glenlivet Distillery until 1952. Now renovated to a very high standard, the aim of the owners is to offer a luxurious and relaxing break in the heart of the highlands of Scotland for up to 14 people in 7 bedrooms.

Glenlivet is one of Scotland’s so called ‘secret glens’ in the Cairngorms National Park. The two rivers of Livet and Avon are part of the 58,000 acre of Glenlivet Estate, part of the Crown Estate. This area of the highlands has beautiful walks, cycling trails, horse riding and skiing areas, and because Glenlivet is a Crown Estate these are well signposted and maintained. Here you will find solitude and extensive, wide open spaces. 

Glenlivet has nowhere lower than 600 feet, and a lot of traditional industries still exist like whisky distilleries, farming and forestry. Also, the Livet and Avon Rivers (pronounced “a’an”) offer fantastic fishing with weekly permits available for the Community owned stretches of river. 

The rolling hills change colour dramatically in late summer and autumn. Wildlife lovers will not be disappointed as there are many types of birds and animals to discover in the beautiful glen.

Glenlivet Whisky Distillery is right on the doorstep.  Grantown-on-Spey is 19 miles away, Elgin 27 miles, the scenic coast of Morayshire only 20 minutes away, Aviemore 30 miles and Inverness 50 miles. Also, the major Scottish ski resorts of Glenshee, Lecht and Cairngorm are within one hour’s drive. It is just over an hour to Ballater and Balmoral Castle.
