  • "Great base for exploring Portsoy & the surrounding areas."

    Just off a main road, close to shops and within short walking distance of the harbour. Well equipped. We only occupied the double bed which was very comfortable, and the low part of the ceiling in that bedroom wasn't too much of an issue for us. Parking right outside address was very useful.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review Helen. I'm so glad you enjoyed our time in the cottage and Portsoy x Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful few days staying at this lovely cottage just before Christmas to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary."

    We had been keen to escape from the stress of Christmas and recharge our batteries and the appeal of a little fisherman’s cottage near the sea was hard to resist. The weather as predicted was awful but the cottage was so welcoming and warm with its log burning wood stove, lovely furnishings and decor. The bedrooms comfortably furnished with seaside themes and the beds so comfortable. There was a lovely welcome pack on arrival and the kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need. The upstairs main bedroom and shower room has a very low sloping ceiling which it takes a bit of getting used to and I did manage to bang my head on it once so something to be aware of but you only make that mistake once and just something to be aware of. Being a thick walled cottage, we never heard any loud traffic even though we were not far from the town centre. There are also so many decent shops nearby for supplies, eg. Places to eat, coffee shops, gift shop,bakers, fishmonger, co op, hotel, fish and chip shop etc all less than 5 minute walk away and a lovely harbour and beach 15 mins walk away. The cottage can comfortably accommodate a family of 4 or 2 couples or even just one couple like us looking for some peace and quiet. We loved our stay here and would definitely like to return again in the summer. Thank you so much for helping us celebrate our special anniversary and take home some lovely memories to treasure.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. So glad you had nice time and have some special memories of your wedding anniversary. Hope to welcome you again soon x Property Owner

  • "We had a great holiday at the cottage."

    Portsoy is a lovely village and the coast around this area is spectacular. The EV charging point in The Square in Portsoy was just 2-3 minutes walk away and was reliable, so we started each morning with a fully charged car. The cottage was very warm, comfortable and well equipped. We hope to come back.

    Thank you for your lovely review. So glad you had a nice time. Property Owner

  • "Very clean and comfortable."

    The double bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was good and well stocked with dishes etc and equipment. Good shower upstairs and nice bathroom downstairs. Should mention that upstairs has coomed ceilings which would be difficult for a tall person. The house is on a small lane but near the busy main road which can be noisy at night - not to mention the seagulls!! The owner was helpful and friendly. Portsoy is a lovely small town on the Moray Firth coast which has many coastal walks. Aspire is a good place to eat but booking is recommended and check opening times.

    Thank you for your lovely review. We are booked in to Aspire in a couple of weeks and are really looking forward to trying it, thank you for the recommendation Property Owner

    Very comfortable cottage. Nice and close to cafes, shops, pubs and ice cream shop. Park was also close for walking the dog. The decking area at the back door was a real sun trap and it was well enclosed for the dog. Great holiday.

  • "Stairs to master bedroom quite steep."

    Wouldn’t recommend them for older visitors or people with mobility issues. We couldn’t use this bedroom. Garden is very small and not really suitable for dogs in my opinion. The cottage is beautifully clean and well equipped. Parking outside was excellent and the location is fabulous. The welcome pack was very generous and the cottage is cosy, we had a lovely 3 days in Portsoy.

    Thanks for your feedback and for the very positive comments about the cottage. Just for helpful information, it is an ex-fisherman's cottage, albeit completely modernised and equipped for creature comforts. The photos give a true representation of the cottage and the garden, with the garden being an easy maintained nice space to relax and catch the sun (when we have some!). These cottages do not have vast swathes of land with them as the photos show. There is a large and beautiful park which runs around Loch Soy just behind the garden which you can get to within a 2 minute walk in either direction from the house if something bigger is required for exercise. We've updated the description to advise that the stairs are a little steep for those with mobility difficulties, thanks again. Property Owner

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.
