The village of Fordyce is an award-winning conservation village that oozes history and charm with beautiful old stone buildings and tiny winding streets. Fordyce village is slightly inland from the coast and has a history dating right back to the 13th century. The village has a real sense of community and the properties are all well-kept with very pretty gardens, it’s a bit like stepping into a fairy tale! There is a lovely pink Castle and an Old Kirk and Kirkyard dating back to the 16th century which is an interesting place to wander around, as is the Fordyce Joiner’s Workshop and Smithy - a real museum run by the community. Fordyce is perfectly located for visiting the many pretty fishing villages scattered along the North East Coast all with their own history and excellent local services. Portsoy is just 3 miles away and here you will find pubs, restaurants and shops. The area offers opportunities for golf, fishing, sailing, cycling, bird watching and beach walking as there is a great selection of beaches both big and small to choose from.

Previous visitors' comments about Honeysuckle Cottage:
The cottage was in a lovely location, with beach walks only a five minutes drive away. It was very peaceful and perfect for a quiet break away with our dog. The information booklet, with leaflets and maps were very helpful too.

The cottage was beautiful, comfortable, in a pleasant area of Scotland. Neighbours very friendly, made you feel welcome. The cottage had everything you need, from the kitchen to toilet rolls and blankets. All in all excellent.
