A fisherman's cottage located in Crovie, the best preserved 19th century fishing village on the north east coast of Scotland.
The cottage is in an idyllic location which comprises a single row of cottages that lie between the base of the cliffs and the open sea, and is ideal for a family or friends who appreciate peace and tranquillity.
This charming cottage is accessed via a flight of external stone steps that lead up to the front door and the deceptively spacious accommodation has two comfortable bedrooms on the upper floor, a double and a twin.
The lower floor has a cosy sitting room with woodburning stove, a well-equipped and contemporary kitchen with a dining area and a shower room.
Outside the cottage, there is a front courtyard where you can relax with a cup of coffee enjoying the amazing views.
The sea is just 5 yards from the front door and the open views are simply amazing.
There is a small coastal path that links Crovie with the neighbouring village of Gardenstown where you will find your local shop and friendly village hotel.
For wildlife lovers, just to the east of Crovie is the RSPB reserve at Troup Head and, of course, the Moray Firth is famous for its dolphins.
The towns of Banff and Macduff are within short drives and offer excellent local services and a visit to the fabulous Macduff Marine Aquarium is to be recommended.
Once a small fishing village and now a popular visitor destination, guests to this unspoilt part of Scotland will feel they have discovered a hidden gem with this lovely cottage.

About the location
Gardenstown 1.6 miles.
The small village of Crovie is not only pretty but is also quite unique as no vehicles can drive through the village and access to the single line of cottages is via a path that borders the sea. Vehicles are left at a car park at the start of the village. A one time busy fishing village it is now a peaceful retreat for visitors who love the charm and gentle ambience of the community. Crovie faces west onto the Moray Firth and in the summer fabulous sunsets can be enjoyed whilst in the winter months the Northern Lights can sometimes be seen. Although a real retreat Crovie is close to the many atmospheric fishing villages all along the north east coastline each with their own history and well worth a visit.
