Location and Directions:

to Elgin are the simplest routes.
It is probably more pleasant to leave the A9 at Aviemore and follow the
A95 to Grantown-on-Spey and then the A94 to Forres.
From Forres carry on the A96 towards Elgin until you come to the signs
marked Miltonduff. Turn right off the A96 and head for Miltonduff.
You could on the other hand take the A95 to Craigellachie and then take
the A941 to Elgin.Inverness Airport is 35 miles away and Aberdeen is 70
miles. Car rental companies are at both airports.If travelling by rail
either take the east coast line to Aberdeen and get a connection to Elgin
station which is 4 miles from the cabins or travel to Inverness and take
the connection to Elgin.
