‘PARRANDIER’ is at the heart of the area known as ‘The Laich of Moray’. The Laich lies in the shelter of the GRAMPIAN HIGHLANDS and is well-known for its dry and sunny climate.

Your spirits lift as you approach the edge of the small village of Urquhart and spy the inspiring 70ft tower of the church.

On top of a small hillock the church offers open, uninterrupted views of the beautiful countryside…close to the Highlands and to the Sea!

The converted church dates back to 1843 and is a ‘B’-listed building. Conceived in the perpendicular style of ‘James Gillespie Graham’ it is situated in a superb rural location 5 miles from ELGIN.

Our home at the church offers now holiday accommodation at ground floor, flexible to arrange from 2 up to 13/14 guests with a fantastic garden extending to 2 acres, the whole church hillock.
