Our fishing party stay at Collie Farmhouse was a very enjoyable comfortable experience ideally situated for the fishing.
The large well appointed kitchen was appreciated by our Cook and our meals in the large well equipped character dining room were enjoyed by all.
The two comfortable lounges were super for a large party.
It proved to be a ‘home from home’ experience.
6 double bedrooms meant the whole party of 9 were comfortably catered for.
We would thoroughly recommend this Farmhouse in such a beautiful tranquil area of the Spey valley.

We stayed in Collie farmhouse earlier this week. Our party of fishermen found it to be very comfortable, homely, and well appointed. In fact it feels more like a home than a rental property. We were also very well looked after by the owners who take a personal interest in making you welcome. I would recommend Collie Farmhouse to anyone looking for a great place to stay to explore the Spey valley. Whether fishing locally as we were, or as a base to visit any of Speyside’s attractions, distilleries, etc, Collie farmhouse is an ideal place to stay.

I have been coming to Collie Farmhouse for a number of years, as part of a larger party and it is a joy to stay here every time. It is a lovely, spacious, family home, beautifully furnished, with all the amenities you could want, in a fabulous ‘Swallows and Amazons’ location. I cannot wait until I am back there again next year!

Mark C , Malton, United Kingdom

This is a perfect accommodation for a large group who want to spend a quiet, homey vacation in the spey valley. The house is very comfy and luxurious. The helper cleans the house from Mon to Fri, which is a big plus for people staying long period. She even sets up the firewood in the fireplace every day! I cannot recommend more if you are looking for a reasonably priced, nice accomocation in speyside.


My wife and I stayed at Collie Farmhouse this September as part of a fishing party organised by Lincolnshire friends. We had a great time. The house is big , comfortable and warm and well equipped. It is spacious with lovely gardens going down to the River Spey on one of its most beautiful and exclusive salmon beats. There is a fantastic rod room with space for drying fishing or walking gear, and the lounges, dining room and kitchen are beautifully furnished. The location is in a beautiful river valley yet not far from the coast or local towns. If I’m lucky enough to fish here again this is where we’ll stay.

We rent Collie Farmhouse each year as a large group (12). It is exceptionally well appointed and provides a luxurious and very comfortable place to stay in the Spey Valley. We particularly appreciate the two drawing rooms as well as the wonderful dining room. The whole party looks forward to returning each year and we simply cannot recommend collie farmhouse highly enough.the owner and housekeeper are very friendly indeed and cannot do enough to help.

This is a very comfortable rental house that feels much more like a home. Fantastic location and very good size rooms. I was fishing and the river was just down the track. Very good kitchen. The whole house was very cosy and warm. Lovely views and very quiet.

I recently stayed at Collie for a week with a large group of friends for which it couldnt have been more perfect. The house is in a secluded spot next to the Spey and is packed full of rural charm. We were 10 people for which there was ample space and you are well looked after by the delightful Sandra who comes in every morning.

The surrounding area is packed full of things to do including:

Canoeing trips down the river
Whisky tours around some of the finest distilleries in Scotland
Horse riding

We did all of the above and consequently didnt have a moment to spare all week. I loved my stay at Collie and will definitely be returning next year.

Charlie M, London, United Kingdom

I cannot recommend this cosy and charming farmhouse more. The setting is idyllic and the house is incredibly comfortable. There is alot to do in the area such as visits to the local distillery, horse riding, walks on the beach and great golf courses all close by. If you are looking for a homey place to stay, this is your place!
