  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Eider Cottage."

    Very clean, modern, warm & comfortable. We both got great sleeps in the extremely comfy beds. The only negative would be that there was no washing machine but that didn’t bother us too much. Also for my 84 year old mother the cottage could’ve done with a grab handle at the front door due to the step and also in the shower as she didn’t feel safe in there. But overall they’re minor issues that didn’t prevent our enjoyment. I’d defo happily stay here again.

  • "Eider cottage is a fantastic holiday house, beautifully decorated, perfect bathroom/kitchen and overall exceptionally clean."

    It's really lovely, warm and cosy, a perfect base to explore the area. Cullen itself has beautiful walks and the town has many great cafes and delivery food options. Highly recommend Eider Cottage.

  • "We have visited Moray many times but this has definitely been out best stay yet."

    Eider Cottage is immaculately presented whilst being cosy and comfortable. It is deceptively spacious. It is in a peaceful location but close to all amenities, ideal for exploring both Moray and Aberdeenshire coast. Louise, the host, is so helpful. For anyone wanting to visit the area we highly recommend staying at Eider Cottage

  • "Excellent is a word that best describes this property and owner in so many ways."

    Excellent communication from the owner. Went out of her way to make sure everything went well during my stay. Excellent accommodation. The cottage is very tastefully decorated and provided a great warm and contented feeing. Excellent location. The cottage is right in the heart of a quaint part of Cullen. Everything is within walking distance. Beautiful scenery, interesting walks and just so much history right on the doorstep. Overall I can't recommend this place highly enough. It's one place I will certainly return to.

  • "The cottage was very clean and comfortable."

    The owner apologised that there was a small maintenance issue that had not been dealt with yet in the bathroom but this was not an issue for us. She had very kindly left scones, croissants, wine, jam, butter and crisps. A lovely welcome touch which we enjoyed, apart from the wine as we don't drink alcohol. Thank you for a lovely holiday in an excellent location. Couldn't have been better.

    Hello Gordon, Thanks for the feedback and I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the cottage, your holiday and the treats! It was a wee thank you to apologise for the damp patch in the bathroom. The bathroom is being replaced in the next few weeks so if you do visit again it will be all shiny and new with costal vibes! Property Owner

    There was half a toilet roll and apart from a welcome pack of crisps wine and some biscuits the cupboards were bare.There was one dishtowel and no cleaning products .The first thing we had to do was find a shop!There was nothing about Cullen or what to do.No information whatsoever,no books ,games etc.First time we have encountered this.We paid £660 for this week as it was a Bank Holiday,(my mistake) although most of the cottages were empty.We were very disappointed as we had to go shopping straight away.We did have a good holiday but disappointed at empty cupboards.

    Hi Helen, Perhaps you misunderstood the definition of self catering, we do not normally fill the cupboards with food nor does any other self catering establishment. There was crisps, wine and biscuits left for you. I’m glad to hear that otherwise you had a good holiday. With Kind Regards, Louise x Property Owner

    Hello William, I'm glad to hear that you had a relaxing time - that's what it is all about! I note from my score that you marked me down due to the fact that there is not an upstairs bathroom, this was clear at the time of booking. My adjoining property (Sandpiper Cottage) which was available at your time of booking may have been more suited to your needs as it has a family bathroom and 2 x ensuite bathrooms upstairs.

About the location


Elgin 21 miles.

The Moray coastal town of Cullen is situated on Cullen Bay, an inlet of the Moray Firth, and is an extremely attractive town, originally built around the mouth of the Burn of Deskford. Modern Cullen comprises the delightful fishing village of Seatown and an ‘inland’ area, which stretches up an imposing main street from Seatown, underneath a spectacular viaduct. Although the wealth of Cullen was built on textiles in the 18th century, the town is best known for its fishing heritage, its name being given to a rich, creamy haddock soup known as Cullen Skink. Visitors can enjoy Cullen’s lovely sandy beach, the famous Ice Cream Shop, regarded by many as Scotland’s best ice cream parlour, a fine selection of shops and restaurants, and the historic city of Elgin is within driving distance.
