  • "Learig is in a perfect location for exploring the Moray Coast."

    The house is comfortable and well equipped. The kids loved the games. It has everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The photos simply don’t do the views justice. We loved looking out onto the sea with an uninterrupted view of storm Babet. At night we watched the meteor shower from the bedroom skylight. The communication from the owner was great. We will definitely be back! Thanks

  • "We had a wonderful 5 night stay in this cottage, we encountered one slight problem with a bed during out stay, which was resolved in less than an hour after a call to the owners."

    Learig was a very well furnished and stocked cottage with the most beautiful view from the panoramic windows in the kitchen. Learig is also very well insulated so even tho it was cold outside we were very warm and cosy inside. We would definitely recommend and would book again next time we're in the area

    Learig is an amazing property in a lovely location, a lot of thought has went into providing a holiday cottage that I would say would suit everyone, if for any reason you need to phone the owners as I did they are very prompt and professional at solving any issues, views are amazing, we got lucky with the weather for our stay in the last weekend in September, regards Charles

  • "We regularly stay on the west coast of Scotland our first time on the east coast and what a surprise."

    We loved Buckie and nearby coastal fishing villages, they all had their harbours, no parking charges, clean public toilets and very friendly locals. The property was first class, everything you needed and even had Sky sports, have never had that before in a holiday home. We have stayed in rented holiday accommodation across the UK and US, this is one of the best.

    Thank you so much for the great feed back Ieuan, it is very much appreciated. I’m so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope you return in the future. Best Gordon Property Owner

  • "A really lovely, comfortable, well-equipped and dog-friendly holiday cottage with amazing sea views."

    We spent a lot of time in the dining room enjoying the view. The 3 bathrooms and downstairs bedroom were ideal for a multi- generational family holiday. Good communication from the owners and the welcome basket was a nice touch. Lots of things to do locally, with pretty wee towns and stunning beaches close by. We all loved the house and plan to come back soon!

    Thank you Elaine, So glad you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you stay. I hope we get the opportunity to see you again in the future. Best Gordon Property Owner

    The cottage and its facilities are first class and the views are outstanding with a lovely welcome basket on arrival too. My partner, my two children (aged 12 & 14) and our wee dog had a fantastic time and the overall verdict was one of we will be back.

The property

Residing on the Scottish coast in the burgh town of Buckie, is this former fisherman’s home, Learig.

Wonderfully presented with nautical themes and homely interior, this delightful pet-friendly dwelling welcomes a family of six or groups of friends who are looking to discover the delights of this beautiful seaside town.

After taking in the breath-taking sea views that envelope the property, venture into your new home-from-home, uncovering an immaculate sitting room where you can kick your shoes off and sink into the plush harris tweed sofas, basking in the warmth of a woodburning stove; for light entertainment, switch on the Smart TV and relish a film day with your loved ones.

Move further into the property to find a light and airy kitchen/diner with spectacular views of the Moray Firth, equipped with all the necessary appliances and a dining table for six guests, this is the idyllic spot for the designated chef to prepare tasty meals which can be enjoyed over a bottle of fizz; for your convenience, there is also a utility with a washing machine and tumble dryer so you can keep your holiday wardrobe refreshed and enjoy beach days care-free.

After a sumptuous meal, head to one of three fantastic bedrooms, choose from either a ground-floor double hosting an en-suite bathroom, another double with en-suite shower room or a twin, with the added service of a family bathroom and cloakroom.

When you’re ready to explore, Buckie is a small fishing town boasting great wildlife and scenery which stretches over to Bow Fiddle Rock where you can bask in splendid vistas across the sealine, headlands and beyond; for the daredevils amongst your group, why not try your hand at a variety of watersports that are available here and keep an eye out for dolphins, ospreys and otters which can all be seen from the mouth of Spey Bay.

For golfers there are 6 golf courses within a 10-mile radius and if you enjoy a malt whisky you are only 20 miles from some of the most famous Speyside Distilleries many of whom have informative tours and visitor centres.

Venture to Fochabers for a relaxing day at Gordon Castle Estate where you can amble around one of the oldest and largest walled kitchen gardens in Britain, enjoy a bite to eat at the on-site café while younger members of your party play, or spend the afternoon at Scottish Wildlife Trust Spey Bay Wildlife Reserve, an area of exceptional interest with a vast array of landscape and wildlife.

Further on is Elgin, where Duffus Castle, Spynie Palace and Elgin Cathedral and Museum all await.

This tranquil coastal location offers much to see, ensuring a memorable retreat at Learig.

About the location


Portessie 1 mile; Rathven 1.5 miles; Portknockie 5 miles; Cullen 7 miles.

Overlooking the beautiful Moray Firth, the burgh town of Buckie lies on either side of the Burn of Buckie, on the north east coast of Scotland. It has an array of shops and pubs and is a great coastal base from which to explore this wonderful part of Scotland. Regular boat trips leave from the harbours of Buckie and further along the coast to Macduff, which offer the chance to see bottlenose dolphins and an array of sea birds. To the west of the town, Spey Bay is the base for the Scottish Dolphin Centre and is also a fantastic place from which to spot dolphins and seals! From Buckie, stretching in both directions, the coastline is peppered with pretty fishing villages and wonderful beaches that are perfect to stroll along with your fish and chips. Pack a picnic, drive to the fabled Loch Ness and enjoy a stroll along its stunning shoreline, or explore the historic city of Elgin, a short drive away. There is so much to see and do from this wonderful little seaside town.
