The Property

Portsoy 2.5 miles. A smart and immaculately-presented cottage, centrally located in the quiet conservation village of Fordyce, close to the stunning Moray Firth coast. Tastefully presented with wonderful attention to detail, this Fordyce cottage has been sympathetically restored and features unusual curved walls in the sitting room and one of the bedrooms. This Aberdeenshire cottage will appeal to a family or a group of friends who appreciate the luxury of this cottage and its close proximity to wonderful open countryside and atmospheric coastal fishing villages. There are three sumptuous bedrooms on the first floor, along with a very large four piece bathroom. The bespoke fitted kitchen has lovely views across the open fields and a small breakfast area, while the split-level sitting room is both elegant and comfortable, with a welcoming open fire and raised dining area. To the rear of this cottage near Portsoy is a private, enclosed terraced seating area, ideal for a barbecue on a summer’s evening or perhaps a quiet pre-dinner drink. The village of Fordyce has won many awards over the years and is known as 'the garden village' and with a history dating back some 500 years, it even boasts its own coat of arms. Be sure to visit the Fordyce Joiners Workshop and Museum during your stay as this is well worth a visit. Just a short distance away is the stunning Moray Firth Coastline, with pretty villages and sandy beaches and a great choice of golf courses! Fordyce is a perfect central location should you choose to drive inland and visit the Malt Whisky Trail or Castle Trail, meander through the many coastal villages with their pretty harbours. At the end of a busy day you will be happy to relax in the comfort of your Fordyce cottage.
