The port village of Gardenstown is often linked with neighbouring Gamrie and Crovie as one community, and was founded in 1720 by Alexander Garden as a fishing village. Gardenstown borders a small sandy bay with stunning scenery flanking both sides. The village has a pub serving food and a bakery/grocers. A steep road leads you through the ancient, narrow and winding streets to the harbour where many small boats are moored. The neighbouring town of Banff boasts a relaxing sandy beach and a variety of fascinating architecture in contrasting styles, exemplified by Duff House, an impressive Georgian mansion open to visitors and home to paintings and artefacts from the National Galleries of Scotland. Banff and the surrounding area also has a good selection of shops, restaurants and hotels which serve a fine selection of local sea foods, whilst nearby Pennan, a beautiful old smugglers village, was the location for the movie 'Local Hero'. The whole area is an ideal tourist destination, being on the North East Tourist Trail, with easy access to both the coastal paths and the Whisky and Castle Trail, as well as numerous golf courses, fishing, sailing, dolphin watching, surfing, climbing, great walking and of course, stunning sunsets and scenery.

Previous visitors' comments about Ellie-Ann Cottage:
The cottage was very well furnished and presented very nicely, it felt very homely which is not easy to do with a holiday let. The location was stunning, very quiet and very tranquil. The cottage had all the amenities we needed to be able to relax and enjoy our holiday.
