  • "The cottage size and layout suited us."

    Burghead is a great wee place, lots of interesting things to do there and nearby. Dolphins pop up just off the headland regularly! The only drawback from point of view of driving an electric car is that there isn't an EV charger in Burghead. But there are several in Elgin...

The property

This former fisherman’s cottage is located in the coastal village of Burghead on the shores of the Moray Firth, a stone’s throw from the beach and eight miles from Elgin.

This semi-detached cottage is suitable for a family or small group of friends who will enjoy the wonderful coastline with its many towns and villages just waiting to be explored. The interior of the cottage includes a cosy sitting room with a small dining area, as well as a compact but well-equipped kitchen.

There are two comfortable bedrooms both with TVs, a ground floor double, and a first floor family room with a double and single bed.

The ground floor family bathroom completes your well-equipped seaside cottage. Outside, there is a lawned garden and a lovely little seating area which is a real sun trap, an ideal spot for having a barbecue.

Burghead has an excellent beach and harbour with a good selection of local amenities including shops, pubs and restaurants, all within walking distance.

The area is a haven for wildlife lovers with an abundance of bird life and Burghead Bay being the ideal place to spend an afternoon seal, dolphin and whale spotting.

Although this area has miles of sandy beaches and loads of wildlife you may wish to venture inland and pick up the famous Malt Whisky Trail with over 50 distilleries within easy reach.

The popular coastal villages of Lossiemouth and Findhorn can be easily reached, and are well worth a visit, with both offering excellent facilities and activities.

Elgin, just over eight miles away, is Scotland’s smallest city and is situated on the banks of the River Lossie in an Area of Outstanding Beauty and is home to many visitor attractions including its famous 13th century cathedral.

Fisherman's Rest is a lovely base for exploring this wonderful area.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £125.

About the location


Lossiemouth 8.5 miles; Elgin 8.5 miles; Findhorn 9 miles.

Burghead is a peaceful coastal village on the shores of the Moray Firth in the north east Scotland, eight miles from Elgin. The village has a lot to offer with a good selection of shops, pubs and eating places as well as having an excellent beach, far-reaching views, an abundance of flora, fauna and bird life. Burghead Bay is rich in wildlife with whales, dolphins, porpoises and seals regularly visiting, and if you are lucky you may even see the odd rare sighting of a Minki Whale. Today, Burghead is dominated by the huge maltings building where the grain used in the production of whisky is prepared, so some say that this is the real start of the famous Whisky Trail, which winds its way through the very heart of Moray.
