The property

A beautifully presented stone cottage, conveniently located in the heart of the small fishing town of MacDuff on the dramatically stunning north east coast of Scotland.

From the rear of this MacDuff cottage there are widespread sea views across the waters of the Moray Firth to the town of Wick on the north eastern head of the British Isles.

This MacDuff cottage is ideal for one or two couples who simply want to explore this fabulous area and who can enjoy the comfort this MacDuff cottage has to offer.

With the accommodation all on one level, there are two delightful double bedrooms, a smart cottage-style kitchen with dining room and a sitting room that exudes quality and style.

At the rear of the MacDuff cottage there is a courtyard style garden with a patio area that is a real sun trap and an ideal place to sit with your morning coffee whilst planning the day's activities.

The area has an abundance of things to do and see and Banff Bay has half a mile of wonderful clean sand which is also a perfect place for spotting sea life such as dolphins, puffins and gannets.

A visit to Duff House is a must as it not only runs continuous art exhibitions but the grounds of the house are rich in wildlife and there are lovely woodland walks by the River Deveron.

The north east coast is full of interesting villages, one of which is the village of Pennan which was the location for the film Local Hero.

All of the villages have their own interesting history and unique atmosphere and are well worth visiting.

Wherever you go you will simply long to get back to the luxury and comfort of your fabulous MacDuff cottage.

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 and boasts the only private business in Europe to still build traditional wooden fishing boats! 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.
