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 Moray Mirth Cottage:
Great location for exploring the area and wonderfully comfortable property with everything we could possibly need. A home away from home.
Ms Collins, Slough, August 2012
The excellent standard of the cottage and its location. The owner was very attentive beforehand and made himself openly available, should we have had any issues.
Mrs Seel, Ilkeston, August 2012
The cottage was a beautiful and relaxing base for our holiday. Sitting on a bench over looking Cullen Bay watching dolphins was a real highlight of our holiday.
Mr Whitelaw, Glasgow, July 2012
This was our first visit to the Moray Coast and the sun did not favour us with it's presence, however the weather was good for walking and the cottage was extremely comfortable. We were very warmly welcomed on arrival with a tray of muffins and coffee/tea etc and even the dogs were included in the welcome with biscuits and towels. I have already recommended the accommodation to friends.
