The Rest, Bed and Breakfast

Beach Front Location

In Partnership with VisitScotland, the National Trust Organisation of Scotland.


The Rest is a friendly and welcoming bed and breakfast situated right by the beach in the wildlife haven of Spey Bay. The Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society visitor centre is at the end of the road. The world famous Spey Bay golf links, with newly refurbished club house, is at the other end. The mouth of the river spey is an RSPB protection site and is a great spot for watching dolphins, seals, otters and ospreys. For walkers we are situated on the Speyside Way, just 6 miles from the end of the walk at Buckie. We are near to the Whisky trail and in the heart of salmon fishing country. If all this activity is too much you might like to spend your evenings on the beach outside the back garden. Listen to the gentle crash of the waves and the crackle of your camp fire as you admire the spectacular views across the Moray firth to the mountains of Caithness.


Our aim is to make our property feel like your home from home. We take great pride in the positive feedback we receive from guests. You can check out some pictures on the gallery page. All availability queries are welcome whether by e-mail or telephone. We look forward to welcoming you and making sure you have a wonderful stay.

COVID-19 Update

We have now re-opened following all Scottish Government guidelines. We have met the full criteria of the Good To Go standards in partnership with VisitScotland, the National Tourist Organisation of Scotland. As some of our facilities are shared, we are currently only accepting bookings from one party at a time, therefore you will enjoy sole occupancy during your visit.
