One bedroom is furnished with a king size bed, the other with a 6' zip and link, being able to split into 2 singles.
Own entrance. Parking. Riverside garden shared with the pub. One well behaved dog is accepted too at a charge of £10pn.
Rising in the southern part of the Monadhliath massif, the River Spey flows through some of the most beautiful scenery before disgorging its cool, clear waters 172 kilometres later at Spey Bay in the Moray Firth. It is the ninth longest river in Britain and the third longest and the fastest flowing in Scotland.
Renowned for its salmon, the river entices fishermen from all points of the compass to come and pit their wits against the King of Fish. But it is not only the fishing that draws people to Speyside: this area is rich in history with many fine examples of castles and other historical sites, as well as being home to over 50 distilleries, each producing its own distinctive ‘amber fluid’.
Taking its name from the river through which it flows, Speyside is a walkers’ paradise and a mecca for crafters and artists, who come for the unique quality of light, the vast open skies, breath-taking sunrises and sunsets and just for the sheer exuberance of the area. Once visited, it is never forgotten.
Over the years the Fiddichside Inn has played host to visitors from all walks of life, who come here to indulge their passion for whisky, castle hopping and munro-bagging, skiing, off-road driving, kayaking, white water rafting and, of course, fishing – you name it, it is here.
This diverse and stunningly beautiful area is mesmerising in any season – what are you waiting for?
We can provide beautiful self-contained holiday accommodation in the attached cottage. Behind the cherry red front door there is the living/dining/kitchen area downstairs and two generous double sized bedrooms each with it’s own bath/shower room. This can be rented for a minimum of three nights and is a real home from home.
This was a perfect stay from start to finish. Alison was the perfect hostess. The house was immaculate, cozy and well equipped. Everyone was so friendly and helpful with everything from whisky sampling to plans for our days and full of hilarious stories. We will definitely be back. What a great pub you have too!!

The cottage is much nicer than the photos suggest and is located in a lovely quiet spot along the river close to the village. My only regret is I didn’t book it for longer.

A lovely cottage, perfect for accessing the Speyside Way (literally a minute from the front door!). Well equipped, with ample space for two couples.

Great accommodation and good value. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, everything clean and beautifully decorated and thoughtfully done. Alison is a great host. The location of the pub is just a bonus. We would return.

Local pub/ bar connected to a spacious cottage with a bathroom (one has a shower, one has a bath) per bedroom. Nice location and parking. Nearby beauty spots and walks. Ticked all our boxes

If you're on the fence on where to stay, trust me, this is the spot. The apartment is located along the river Fiddich, meaning coffee in the morning and beer in the afternoon along your private stretch of the river. There is a tiny (very tiny) bar attached to the apartment, called the Fiddichside Inn (no actual "inn"), and the afternoon/evenings bring a few regulars from the nearby town. The unit is brand new (2020) and thoughtfully designed with comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. The owner, Alison, is lovely and extremely responsive to any questions you might have. We spent a week here and even extended an extra day when we couldn't pull ourselves to leave our private paradise by the Fiddich. Oh and I should mention that the location is within about 20min to every distillery you can think of and about an hour drive to Cairngorms National Park - meaning there is absolutely no way you can run out of fun things to do in the area. Special thank you to Alison, Barbara, and Tony for their hospitality - we will be back!
