Cromdale Hospitality Accommodation

The village is located on lower hill slopes below the Haughs of Cromdale, which represent an old valley floor of the Spey that has escaped glacial erosion, sitting on gravel terraces either side of the Burn of Cromdale. Cromdale combines a sense of a natural, rural scene within the village with broad views to the Spey and to the wooded and heathery hills not far beyond. Within the settlement, a broad channel holds a burn that runs down from the hills and is associated with some rough grassland and pockets of wetland within the village.
