The Secret Garden - with gentle water feature this is a perfect place to relaxEnjoy a stroll round our large garden with its open lawns, mature trees, woodland glade, vegetable and fruit patch . . or just sit and take in the sight, scents, sounds and peace.

Relax in the summerhouse, a comfortable spot and an excellent viewpoint for watching or photographing the birds and wildlife as they visit the pond.

A haven for wildlife, our one and a half acre garden is home to hundreds of wild birds - pheasants, partridges, woodpeckers, and ducks can be seen feasting here. Red squirrels and hedgehogs visit us regularly does an otter (sometimes with her young)

Our free-range hens roam the garden, great for the garden and for incredibly delicious eggs for your breakfast.

As really enthusiastic (if a little unorthodox!) amateur gardeners we have developed The Dulaig garden from what was virtually grass parkland to what you see today. There is something to see all year round e.g. as well as formal planting areas we have marvellous displays of bulbs in spring and wild fungi from late summer. Over the years Gordon has planted well over 35,000 bulbs in this garden and he is not finished yet!

We have been delighted to be part of the Abenethy and the Stathspey Open Gardens events where for a day we open our garden to the public for charity - it is great fun, and very busy!

We are honoured that our garden at The Dulaig is listed on Discover Scottish Gardens, a website of beautiful gardens and garden nurseries to visit in Scotland. 

We care about the environment too - view our Green Policy

It has been our absolute pleasure to share our home, garden, love of Scotland and of food, with guests over the past 14 years. The experience of running our B&B exceeded our wildest dreams however we - Carol, Gordon (& The Cake Fairy) - have hung up our aprons for the last time.

Thank you to the wonderful guests from all over the world who have stayed with us. You have given us so many special memories which we will always treasure. Thank you too, everyone else who has supported us: your confidence in us was appreciated more than words can say.

Warmest Wishes to All,
Carol, Gordon..and The Cake Fairy x
