Lovely cabin, great location and a friendly host. Recommended.
We stayed mainly at the Kestrel Lodge but also had a night in the Buzzard lodge. Both locations are great secluded locations away from the world. The Kestrel lodge is quaint, comfortable and also very well equipped. The hot tub was all you could ask for, the perfect place to relax. I stayed with friends and we all enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend or make a return visit. Sheila was a friendly host and made sure we felt welcome. She even posted a jacket that was left behind. The only thing to point out is that at the Kestrel Lodge there is no WiFi. There was WiFi at the Buzzard lodge. We were able to use the 4G on our phones, so not a massive issue. Thanks again.

Cosy log cabin
A very comfortable base for exploring the Moray coast and inland. There was a warm welcome, and the cabin was well equipped. The enclosed garden made it ideal for our two dogs!

If your looking for a relaxing break, this is the place!
I have just returned from a weeks break at the Kestrel cabin and it was just amazing. It was such a peaceful break in the most gorgeous setting. The area around Miltonduff is just gorgeous also. Myself and my family all had a wonderful time even the dog! Sheila left us a hamper when we arrived and also one for Max our dog - thank you so much Sheila! We really had a great holiday and can’t wait to come back already! Thank you again!

Great location , peaceful relaxed and great log cabin
We have just returned from a week stay at the kestrel , two adults and two boys age 12 & 10 , we have had a great time cabin was lovely fenced area was brilliant for the dog and hot tub was well used . Sheila and sandy were lovely , there if you needed them but left alone to enjoy our stay , It's in a great location and every day we visited a beach / woods or museum, we did worry a little as no wifi but this honestly was not an issue with so much to do , at night it was lovely and cosy with a section off games and DVDs and off course the hot tub , neither boys or us adults needed wifi to keep us amused .

Perfect cabin for children and dogs.
Our second stay at Kestrel. The location is fantastic, the facilities are ample for what we need. It is the ideal place to get away from everything. The secure garden is perfect for our dogs and children. There is so much to do in the area that we have already booked for our third year. Sheila and Sandy are great hosts who happily recommend where to go and what to do.

Another fantastic stay at Springburn!
We have just returned from our second visit to the Kestrel cabin. Lovely cabin in peaceful surroundings and managed by Sheila, a very friendly and helpful owner. The three of us felt quite at home whilst there and the fenced in garden was ideal for letting the dogs out. The hot tub and DVD selection on offer allowed us to relax and have a bottle of wine at night and there were plenty of places to visit during the day! Will definitely return to Springburn when we are next up that way! Previously recommended the cabins to a neighbour, who is set to return next month for her second holiday there. Overall, an extremely relaxing break enjoyed by all and perfect for our needs!

Terrific place to stay and people would recommend to anyone
Myself, my new husband and two dogs stayed here for a week in April. The cabin was excellent everything we expected and Sheila and Sandy were great hosts. The hot tub just topped off what was a wonderful week along with the great weather! Would recommend this to anyone looking to escape for a relaxing week! We have already booked to return next April 👍🏼
