BED AND BREAKFAST ELGIN
Veronica Maclean extends a warm welcome to guests at her traditional, stone-built, Elgin bed and breakfast, which has been in the Maclean family since the middle of the 19th century.
Although the B&B is surrounded by highly productive farmland - Veronica owns 500 acres on which she grows wheat, potatoes and especially malting barley for the local whisky industry, Westfield House is only 3 miles from the historic town of Elgin, with the ruins of its large 13th century cathedral, renowned biblical gardens and famous Elgin Museum.
Sandy beaches on the Moray Firth are a short drive away and the countryside around Spynie and Elgin is ideal for walking. Spynie Palace, former residence of the Bishops of Moray is well worth a visit. Further afield, the 'Malt Whisy Trail', taking in many great distilleries, is within easy driving distance, as is Inverness - gateway to world famous Loch Ness. Veronica has detailed knowledge and a love of the area and will ensure that her guests are able to derive maximum benefit from their stay.
Westfield House itself is sumptuously furnished in a traditional style - tartan carpeting in the hall, red carpeting in the dining room, an oak staircase displaying oil paintings and standards. In the winter an open fire welcomes guests into the sitting room.
The accommodation offers fine linen bedding, plump pillows and magnificent views over the countryside all combining to provide a bed and breakfast experience with atmosphere, comfort and relaxation.
For the energetic a tennis court is available at the B&B.
There is an opportunity to put a marquee up in the garden for weddings and parties.
