About Us

When staying at Orton Holiday Cottages you are the welcome guests of the Millar family; proud stewards of the Orton Estate since the 18th Century.

orton-moray-mapTucked away amongst the woodland, farmland and copses of our ancient Scottish Highlands estate are a selection of beautifully restored farm houses and cottages offering a tasteful mix of rustic charm and 21 Century convenience. Ranging in size from snug two bedroomed cottages to spacious farmhouses able to accommodate parties of fifteen, our holiday cottages provide an idyllic rural retreat for families and groups of friends looking for the perfect Scottish Highlands vacation.

The Orton Estate is bookended by the dramatic glens of the Cairngorms National Park to the South and the sandy beaches of the Moray Firth to the North: a stretch of coastline the National Geographic lists amongst the top ten coastal destinations in the world. Nearby are some of Scotland’s finest golf courses, Castle Stuart and Royal Dornoch amongst them. Speyside is home to more than half of Scotland’s malt whisky distilleries, including some of the most famous such as Glenfiddich, Glenlivet and Cardhu. Speyside enjoys a thriving arts and cultural scene and there is over a thousand years of history waiting to be discovered.

For guests looking to experience traditional Scottish countryside sports the Orton Estate is home to three miles of riverbank on the River Spey, renowned the world over for superb salmon and sea trout fishing. We offer bespoke packages and itinerates: including ghillie support, equipment hire, riverside accommodation and a range of catering options. All of which makes the Orton Estate a great venue for a fishing holiday in the Highlands of Scotland.

So there is plenty to see and do and Orton Holiday Cottages provides the ideal base from which to explore both Speyside and the wider Scottish Highlands. For more information on staying with us please contact us.
