The property

A wonderful location to unwind is available to you at Flowermill Cottage, which is located in the centre of Portknockie's historic village.

The cottage offers a rustic interior with sea views and a sunny garden.

In the evenings, you may cook together and socialise in the large dual-aspect open-plan kitchen/living area, or you can barbeque and unwind in the garden on warm summer nights.

The main bedroom has a king-size bed, while the second bedroom has bunk beds that are freshly prepared for you to crawl into after your travel.

Together, these bedrooms can accommodate up to four people.

A basic family bathroom is available, complete with a powerful shower over the bathtub, soap, and towels.

An outhouse with a washing machine and rotary dryer can be found in the garden.

You can get to the harbor's little beach and wading pool by taking a short trek.

Local businesses include the Victoria Hotel, Seafield Inn, Spar Post Office, and Portknockie Fish & Chips are all accessible on foot.

Just steps away, past the tennis courts and bowling green, are a children's play area and a sports field.

From Cullen, the wonderfully beautiful coastal walk enters Portknockie and continues to Findochty.

By automobile, see the ruins of Elgin Cathedral, a magnificent structure built in 1224, Elgin Museum, Scotland's oldest autonomous museum, or perhaps travel to Speyside Falconry for a behind-the-scenes experience where you can interact with a variety of owls.

The Flowermill Cottage is open to visitors for weekend getaways as well as extended stays.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location

PORTKNOCKIE

Cullen 2 miles; Findochty 2 miles; Buckie 5 miles; Elgin 20 miles.

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 of 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. Travel east where you will find the historic town of Banff home to an excellent golf club and the fascinating nearby Inchdrewer Castle. With the whole of the Moray Coast to explore, with its Whisky and Castle 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.
