Loxone intelligent automation gives our guests a truly unique Smart Home experience. Ben Shea is located in central Dufftown, the Single Malt Whisky Capital and heart of Moray. We hope you will agree it is a joyful base to create a memorable & relaxing holiday.

You will find all switches are the same, as is the alarm clock and surface touch on bedside cabinets.  These all work in the same way and full details are in your home.  You can control shading, lighting scene options, music volume, airplay and select from favourite radio stations.  Feel free to navigate around the system should you wish – at the same time there is no need to adjust anything if the house is taking care of you just as it is.

  • From the moment of your arrival the house welcomes you with automated lighting and heating set to a comfortable ambient temperature.  Light scenes and music are available in majority of rooms.

  • Night mode guides you to the bathroom or kitchen when it’s dark.  Light scenes, music and shading controlled from 5 point switches throughout.  There is an iPad to jump into more detail if wanted, at the same time you don’t need to change any setting.  Motion initiates a lot of your smart home features, so don’t worry about having to ‘learn’ the house!

  • Self check-in as standard via the access control pad with your unique code for your stay.  Allowing flexibility in time of arrival so your travel day can adapt to suit the unexpected scenic points to stop for photos or dining options along the way.  

  • From the front door and private entrance, a functional hallway gives you a place to leave shoes, hang up coats, or park prams.  Sweeping stairs as visible on the floorplan leads you to your accommodation.  Please do keep to the left, wider treads for safety as you ascend.

  • The first floor living space is open plan with a well-equipped kitchen and cosy living area complete with wood burner.  The stunning stone wall and room features are enhanced with various lighting scene options.  The coffee table rises and opens to meet your dining needs whether its 2 or 6 guests, as well as the social breakfast bar being a good option too.
