Nestled in the picturesque fishing village of Findhorn in Moray, Scotland is this delightful two-bedroom, first-floor apartment. Aurora View enjoys spectacular views of The Moray Firth & beyond. It is the prime location in the UK to view the Northern Lights given the right atmospheric conditions & a clear sky. However even if you are not lucky enough to see The Northern Lights, from the apartment you will get to sit in comfort and enjoy watching for wildlife including gannets, seals and dolphins. Aurora View enjoys a wonderful location just moments from Findhorn's beautiful sandy beach, as well as offering fabulous views looking out over the sand dunes and towards the bay, Aurora View makes for an idyllic dwelling for two couples or a family of four looking to explore this fantastic part of Scotland. Park up in the allocated off-road resident parking space, before unloading your bags and making your way through the shared entrance and up to the first floor to begin your holiday. Be welcomed into the spacious open-plan living space, where you can look forward to rustling up flavourful meals for your guests in the well-equipped kitchen, with the help of the electric oven, ceramic hob, grill, fridge, microwave and a dishwasher, ensuring cleaning up is a breeze! Settle down at the dining table for four as you tuck-in to a delicious meal over a bottle of wine and discuss plans for the days ahead. After a satisfying meal, retreat to the plush sofa where you can snuggle up in front of a much-loved TV series with your favourite tipple. Wash away the day with an indulgent soak in the bath or a refreshing shower, before popping on fresh pyjamas and catching your rest in one of two well-presented bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, both with plenty of storage for your belongings. Awake from a leisurely slumber and prepare for the day in style, before rustling up a morning coffee ready to enjoy on the communal lawn as you take in the impressive views. Explore the local area, where you will find a good selection of eateries right on your doorstep, including Findhorn Bakery, The Kimberley Inn & The Captain's Table, ideal for those evenings where you don't feel like cooking! There is also the small, but informative Findhorn Heritage Centre nearby where you can learn more about the village and its rich history or a 10 minute walk away is the world renowned Findhorn Foundation ecovillage & community, established for over 50 years it is a wonderful place to visit & hosts speakers about eco-living as well as hosting a experience week several times a year. Head over to Findhorn Beach, where you can beach combe the shores, explore the water activities on offer at Findhorn Marina or treat your guests to a scrumptious ice cream from the Captains Parlour. Just a short drive away is the village of Kinloss, where you will find the impressive Kinloss Abbey, as well as the excellent Kinloss Country Golf Club, where golf enthusiasts can test their clubs across 18-holes. Further afield, you will find the bustling town Elgin, which is home to the Elgin Museum, the Moray Motor Museum and the historic Lady Hill monument. Be sure to pay the town's superb 13th-century cathedral a visit, with its vast towers and vaulted arches, it is a budding historian's dream. For an unforgettable escape to Scotland, look no further than Aurora View. EPC Rating: Band C

In the past, Findhorn was a bustling fishing port, and it still maintains strong ties to the sea, with a large portion of the village's activities centred around the bay and the Royal Findhorn Yacht Club situated on the waterfront.

The Gulf Stream's influence on the area's mild climate makes it a popular tourist destination.The Findhorn Foundation's Ecovillage and international centre for holistic education are perhaps its most well-known features.

Reviews

“This was the second visit for me and the third for my wife. Great appartment with special views and deer in the grounds outside. Findhorn is right on the beach with the chance to see Dolphins Seals etc. Long beach for good walking.The appartment is well appointed and is situated on the second floor which could prove difficult for someone with special needs.In the evening cruise ships can be seen out in the sea not too far from the beach. Daylight is very long and there is a chance to see the northern lights. We came home today to find that there was a good chance of seeing them in Forres tonight!”

“This flat exceeded all our expectations! Fabulous views from warm, light and airy accommodation. Immaculately clean and well presented. We were very happy to return to the flat from days out walking this beautiful coastal area.”
