The popular coastal village of Portknockie occupies a stunning, cliff top position overlooking a natural picturesque harbour on the striking Moray Firth Coast. Explore the craggy cliff tops, beaches and secret coves or absorb the dramatic views from the Bow Fiddle Rock, or look out for the dolphins, seals and sea birds that live in the Moray Firth. National Cycle Route 1 also passes through Portknockie. Why not visit the delightful town of Cullen, situated beneath spectacular railway viaducts and renowned for its hearty Cullen Skink (smoked haddock and potato soup) or enjoy a spot of golf at the remarkable golf course? Take a pleasant drive to the lively market town of Elgin, home to an imposing cathedral, museums and the mesmerising Biblical Gardens. With the whole of the Moray Coast to explore, with its Whisky Trail, abundance of historic houses and gardens, sparkling golden sands and hospitable inns, this is a superb base from which to enjoy the delightful north east coast of Scotland.

Previous visitors' comments about Gracemount:
There was nothing that we did not like about our holiday, it was a lot better than we expected. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our hosts for the use of their lovely holiday home.
Mrs Greig, Anstruther, December 2012
The cottage was warm & comfortable for our party of 6 and roomy enough when we invited guests for dinner. The owners were friendly, and even met us at the bus stop when we arrived, as we all travelled by public transport. The bus service is very good. The cottage is in a perfect situation for walks along the cliffs, and old railway line, to Cullen or Buckie.
Ms Farmer, Bodmin, December 2012
The area plenty of scenery and things to do. The accommodation was first class and had everything you need for a self-catering holiday, even pegs to put out washing.
Mrs O'Keefe, Bradford, September 2012
We liked everything about our holiday. The accommodation was spotless and the whole area was everything we would have expected from a holiday in Scotland.
