  • "We found this cottage to be of very high standard."

    It lacked for nothing. It felt very welcoming and very comfortable. It has a lovely garden which we were able to use on a couple days as the weather was very kind to us. There was a folder which explained how everything worked eg washing machine, cooker + how to collect the key ect. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty supply of bathroom towels. Very well thought out all round.

    Thanks Brenda, we’re glad you had such a nice time and appreciate the feedback. You’re welcome back anytime. Property Owner

  • "The holiday cottage is superb."

    For the two of us that stayed there, the rooms are large and the facilities great. Everything was clean and the kitchen has everything. We wanted for nothing. The rear garden was lovely too. Nice to sit outside with a morning coffee. Parking was right outside the front door, so very easy to unload and load our cases and bags. This property is a two minute walk to the harbour and the same to the high street, great location. We will definitely book again.

    Thanks Alan, great to get such positive feedback and you’re certainly welcome back anytime. Thanks again. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay for my mother's birthday, and the house was very clean, we loved how the garden was seperated into one main garden and one secret garden."

    We would happily stay there again!

    Thanks Natalie, we’re really pleased you had an enjoyable stay and would come back again. Thanks. Property Owner

  • "An absolutely beautiful and fully equipped cottage in Portsoy, a wonderful fishing village east of Elgin."

    The cottage has everything you could wish for and things you didn't even know you needed! Very easy parking on a cul-de-sac, there's only Sally the next door neighbour who parks out there as well. Very easy 1 minute walk to a fab Chinese takeaway, Co-op, pub, bakers and the ice cream parlour! Another 5 minutes further on and you'll be at the harbour. By car, you're near to Banff, Cullen, Elgin, Fraserburgh, Peterhead, Aberdeen, Inverness and all surrounding attractions (Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Fort George etc). I'd really recommend this lovely cottage and it's fantastic location.

    Thanks Ailsa, so pleased you enjoyed your stay and glad you enjoyed the cottage and area as much as we do. You’re welcome back anytime. Property Owner

  • "A perfect house for us."

    Well equipped with everything you need and spotlessly clean. Portsoy is perfectly situated to explore along the coast and the area. We would definitelyrecommend and return

    Thanks for the very positive feedback, it’s great to hear you had such a good holiday to the area. Would be excellent to have you back next year. Thanks again. Property Owner

  • "This property has been finished and furnished to a very high standard and with great care."

    Thought has gone into items that might be needed by guests. Not only the house but the garden is beautiful with two areas to sit and enjoy the sunshine. The folder left for guests with information regarding appliances is very straight forward and easy to follow. The log burner is an added bonus and very easy to use. We would seriously consider a return visit.

The property

Nestled in the heart of the coastal town of Portsoy in Aberdeenshire is 20 South High Street.

This wonderful holiday home benefits from a fabulous location close to the town’s local amenities and the beautiful coast as well as a welcoming interior completed by two well-appointed bedrooms; the perfect setting for families or friends looking to explore the wonders of the Scottish coast.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and locate the living/dining room where you can unwind in front of the gentle warmth of the woodburning stove while the designated chef of the group cooks up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen.

Gather the family around the dining table to tuck into their culinary creation and be sure to raise a toast to the cherished memories you have created so far; on sunny days why not step outside to the terraced garden and indulge in an alfresco affair as the sun sets over Portsoy.

When stars appear overhead head back inside to wash off the day’s adventures in the ground-floor bathroom before sloping off to sleep in one of two bedrooms; choose between a king-size and twin, whilst the snug can also accommodate two further guests.

During the day, venture into the heart of Portsoy where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials or enjoy a well-earned break from the kitchen at Station Hotel or head to the coast to enjoy evening drinks at The Shore Inn.

Head to the harbour to savour leisurely strolls in the refreshing sea air before discovering The Salmon Bothy Museum; those looking for something more adventurous can head to Sandend where you can take to the open water on paddle boards or surfboards, a unique way to admire views across the sea.

Follow the coast along to Banff where you can immerse yourself in the area’s history by joining the Banff and Macduff Heritage Trail, tour the breath-taking Georgian Duff House or cross the river to spend the day admiring aquatic life at the Macduff Marine Aquarium.

All this and more awaits at 20 South High Street.

About the location


Fordyce & Sandend 1 mile; Cullen 6 miles; Banff 8 miles.

Portsoy is a historic port situated mid-way between the towns of Cullen and Banff on the pretty Moray Firth coast and is one of the many atmospheric fishing ports scattered along this impressive stretch of the north east coastline of Scotland. Boasting two harbours, one old and one new and with excellent local facilities including hotels, pubs, and shops, Portsoy is a wonderful holiday destination as well as being near to the famous Malt Whisky Trail. The charm of Portsoy has led to it being used for filming multiple period series/films including Peaky Blinders and Whiskey Galore! The area is awash with quality golf courses with fabulous coastal views and the coastal path is perfect for walkers who want to enjoy the unspoilt beauty of the area and roam freely on its lovely beaches. A visit to the Salmon Bothy is a must to get a real feel of the interesting history of Portsoy and hear the story of the area as a trading, fishing, and smuggling port. Portsoy also hosts an annual Scottish Traditional Boat Festival in late June/early July, worth adding to your itinerary.
