Portknochie proved to be a good location for visiting places either in the car or on foot. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday at this lovely old fisherman's cottage. Shame there was no tumble dryer, but we were lucky in having very little rain during our week and an extendable washing line was provided (once you worked out how to use it). The sofas and beds could do with being a bit harder though. Being a back pain sufferer I found both the sofas and the single bed I used caused me some discomfort.

The people in the village and neighbouring villages were very friendly and helpful. Spey bay is a short drive away with stunning walks as well. It's an amazing place we loved it. I have got to mention the homemade ice cream in Cullen it was delicious and the staff really welcoming. Castle Gordon is also worth a visit to their walled garden they were lovely and it was lovely to see the owners of the castle helping out in the gardens and getting stuck in and chatting to visitors about their vision for their project, the cafe was lovely as well.
