I hugely enjoyed the company of fellow professionals and the time we spent together in that remarkable country house
— Guy Grieve, 2018 speaker
 

Inshriach is a family home but retains much of its Edwardian atmosphere with dark panelling, open fires, period furniture and a big farmhouse kitchen.

You may find yourself sleeping in Mrs. Black’s room, Mr. George’s room, the French maid’s room or in the old servants quarters. Down on the farm the old chicken sheds now house the Inshriach Distillery, Saloon bar and inconvenience store. Made famous back in 2015 when it won Channel 4’s Shed of the Year competition it is now the house of the celebrated Inshraich Gin.

Spread out over 20 acres alongside the river Spey, each of them has been designed to take two people right back to nature.

The Shepherd's Hut

This Swedish inspired shepherd’s hut is super comfortable and very charming. Is close to the River Spey if you fancy a wild dip.
