  • “We were greeted with a warm ...”
    We were greeted with a warm friendly smile, lots of fabulous information about how and where to make the most of our time and a goodie pack that consisted of everything we needed to get the week started. The cottage was immaculate, warm and very comfortable after our mammoth nine and half hour drive. Lisa was a wonderful hostess proving that nothing was too much trouble. Hope all who stay here enjoys themselves as much as we did. Scotland is a wonderful place with lots to do. Cullen is peaceful ...
    We were greeted with a warm friendly smile, lots of fabulous information about how and where to make the most of our time and a goodie pack that consisted of everything we needed to get the week started. The cottage was immaculate, warm and very comfortable after our mammoth nine and half hour drive. Lisa was a wonderful hostess proving that nothing was too much trouble. Hope all who stay here enjoys themselves as much as we did. Scotland is a wonderful place with lots to do. Cullen is peaceful and clean. During our week we ate at the Rockpool, the Cullen Bay Hotel, tasted Portknockies fish and chips and Cullen's homemade ice cream. We visited Loch Ness, went on the funicular train at the Cairngorms, sailed on the Gemini Explorer and saw at least four dolphins who travelled along side us. We were also fortunate to see seals on land as well as in the sea. An amazing experience that we are looking forward to repeating again.

The property

A detached stone fisherman's cottage in the heart of Seatown in Cullen, just yards from the coast.

Coastal Haven is a stylish and very desirable cottage, and visitors will immediately be impressed with the presentation and great attention detail throughout.

The cottage has two sumptuous bedrooms, a double and a twin with luxury linen and towels, and there is an adult size folding bed for flexibility if required.

The kitchen/dining room is very well equipped, and an excellent place to prepare and enjoy meals, whilst the impressive sitting room, with its two recliner leather settees and woodburning stove, ensures warm relaxed evenings can be enjoyed after an active day.

During the warmer weather the rear patio is a real sun trap, and an ideal place for a barbecue or pre-dinner drink.

Just a gentle stroll away is a long glorious sandy beach, where children can play safely and everyone can appreciate the beautiful views and tranquillity of the area.

The Moray Firth is of course famous for its dolphins, and they can be seen regularly either from land or by taking one of the many boat trips, where not only the dolphins but also other wildlife can be easily spotted.

Cullen itself has very good local facilities and boasts a smart cafe and a famous ice cream shop, while just a short distance away is the Cullen Hotel which offers good food and great views from its elevated location.

The area is rich in golf courses, and the indented coastline is perfect for exploring, as each little village is different and has its own unique history.

Venture inland and explore the cathedral city of Elgin, or perhaps pick up the Malt Whisky Trail and partake in some tasting.

Whatever you choose to do, this fabulous cottage will be a perfect holiday base.

About the location

CULLEN

Elgin 21 miles.

The Moray coastal town of Cullen is situated on Cullen Bay, an inlet of the Moray Firth, and is an extremely attractive town, originally built around the mouth of the Burn of Deskford. Modern Cullen comprises the delightful fishing village of Seatown and an ‘inland’ area, which stretches up an imposing main street from Seatown, underneath a spectacular viaduct. Although the wealth of Cullen was built on textiles in the 18th century, the town is best known for its fishing heritage, its name being given to a rich, creamy haddock soup known as Cullen Skink. Visitors can enjoy Cullen’s lovely sandy beach, the famous Ice Cream Shop, regarded by many as Scotland’s best ice cream parlour, a fine selection of shops and restaurants, and the historic city of Elgin is within driving distance.
