Hideaway Under the Stars

Hideaway Under the Stars

Dunbalen, Aberlour, Banffshire, AB38 9NL

Hosted by friendly owners Kim and Mark, this lovingly handcrafted retreat is a true eco home with an impressive sustainable ethos; created from locally sourced, renewable materials, including straw bales, stone, clay, and earth.

Nestled in a peaceful valley at the foot of Ben Rinnes in Moray, Scotland, the area is known for its spectacular dark skies. You can appreciate these either from the comfort of your accommodation, thanks to a rather spectacular roof dome and the Sky-Watcher astronomical telescope provided during your stay or by venturing outside to enjoy the majestic night skies fully.

This accommodation is presented in collaboration with Host Unusual.


Stay & gaze - this location benefits from dark skies, relatively low levels of light pollution, is astronomy friendly and suitable for stargazing breaks.
