  • "My daughter, son and I had a lovely week staying at Rock Cottage."

    The cottage was very comfortable and spacious and provided a great base for exploring the joys of Northern Scotland. The bedrooms were comfortable, as was the sitting room. The kitchen was well equipped. There isn't anything that I would change and I would happily stay again. If anyone is thinking of visiting this area I would strongly recommend choosing Rock Cottage.

    Thank you for your kind and honest feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for leaving the cottage clean and tidy. You will be welcomed back any time. Property Owner

  • "This is basic bare minimum."

    Toilet door has not been hung properly and jams. Bath seal not done properly. Would remove most of damp smell from this end area. Shower screen useless. Bare minimum of cutlery and towels. No mattress covers and poor quality bedding. Mattresses atrocious. No storage in 2 bedrooms. No facilities in garden for drying. Kitchen cupboard sliding door needs hung properly. Good wi fi. General area is very run down. Macduff has become a dump and not what i remember. Strange place for a holiday let. We won't be back. Parking sometimes difficult. Not a safe area at night and noisy neighbours. The rest of the coastal villages seem not to have got as run down. Aberdeenshire is still a place we will visit but Macduff will not be on our list.

    We thank you for your feedback, however we absolutely cannot agree with it and looking back at the previous feedback. We will try our hardest to give the best possible service to our guests in the future. Property Owner

  • "Suited our purpose to the letter We were touring and exploring and Macduff was the perfect starting off place."

    The cottage was comfortable and great fun although I was bamboozled by the electric hob and would have preferred a shorter walk to the loo at night.

The property

Centrally located in Macduff, a coastal town in Aberdeenshire is RockStar Cottage, a family-friendly three-bedroom holiday home.

Well-positioned near local amenities and the beach, whilst offering flexible sleeping arrangements and a well-equipped kitchen, the property provides the perfect base for a self-catered stay, welcoming five guests.

Enter the homely living/dining room, featuring plush sofas, a dining table for five and a Smart TV, before heading into the kitchen, housing all expected appliances to rustle up delicious home cooked meals.

Head outdoors for some fresh air to the rear garden, before returning indoors to freshen up in the ground-floor bathroom, featuring both a bath and shower.

Once sleep calls, retire upstairs to find the three bedrooms, well-presented and dotted with storage, where you can make yourself at home ahead of your Aberdeenshire adventure; you'll find a double, a twin, and a single, offering flexibility for all.

To ease your self-catered break, head into the town to stock up on the essentials or to visit one of many local eateries, before touring Macduff Marine Aquarium, hiking up Bridge of Alvah, playing a round of golf at Duff House Royal Golf Club, or attending a host of events at Duff House.

Travelling towards the coastline, feel at one with nature by travelling through RSPB Scotland Troup Head, offering stunning cliff top views, or head west towards Portsoy Harbour, with the chance to discover the remains of Boyne Castle, or watch out for some dolphins at Moray Firth.

Further popular attractions in the area include Fyvie Castle, a magnificent structure, housing antiques and heritage-rich exhibits, and Pitmedden Garden & Museum of Farming Life, where you can enjoy afternoon tea, follow the forest trail or stroll around its blooming gardens.

About the location


Banff 1.5 miles; Whitehills 4 miles; Portsoy 9 miles.

MacDuff is situated on Banff Bay and overlooks its neighbouring town of Banff, just across the estuary of the River Deveron, on the Moray Coast in the north east of Scotland. Macduff enjoys stunning sea views and wonderful sunsets and the architecture reflects its maritime heritage. The north east coast of Scotland is a hidden gem, with its atmospheric fishing villages dotted along the coastline, making it a wonderful place for easy exploration. MacDuff has a busy working harbour. The town itself has a lot to offer with an excellent selection of shops and good restaurants and a visit to the MacDuff Aquarium is a must for seeing the species found in the waters of the Moray Firth. For Golfers, the Royal Tarlair course is a challenge as it is situated on precipitous cliffs and lost balls are never retrieved! Macduff is a wonderful town and an ideal holiday base.
