This all ground floor cottage is set in the rural area of Deskford, just over four miles from Cullen on the Moray Firth coast.

With comfortable accommodation and lovely uninterrupted Moray views, the cottage provides a welcoming base near the coast for a family or couples.

You enter the cottage directly into the open plan living area which has a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area which has the added benefit of a double sofa bed.

The two cosy double bedrooms offer relaxing accommodation with plenty of storage space and completing the property is a shower room.

Outside there is ample off road parking on a large gravelled area and there is a bench where you can sit and take in the picturesque views.

Situated just 4 miles from the fishing town of Cullen, this is a very attractive area with opportunities for fishing enthusiasts, golfers and walkers.

You are also in the heart of the Whisky Trail and most distilleries offer tours which can be a very interesting day out.

About the location


Elgin 21 miles.

The Moray coastal town of Cullen is situated on Cullen Bay, an inlet of the Moray Firth, and is an extremely attractive town, originally built around the mouth of the Burn of Deskford. Modern Cullen comprises the delightful fishing village of Seatown and an ‘inland’ area, which stretches up an imposing main street from Seatown, underneath a spectacular viaduct. Although the wealth of Cullen was built on textiles in the 18th century, the town is best known for its fishing heritage, its name being given to a rich, creamy haddock soup known as Cullen Skink. Visitors can enjoy Cullen’s lovely sandy beach, the famous Ice Cream Shop, regarded by many as Scotland’s best ice cream parlour, a fine selection of shops and restaurants, and the historic city of Elgin is within driving distance.
