The property

Sitting on the coast in the wonderful town of Portsoy, Aberdeenshire is this fantastic, semi-detached bungalow of Lily's Hoosie.

Perfect for a family of four seeking a seaside stay, Lily's Hoosie provides a charming base for your next Aberdeenshire adventure.

After leaving your vehicle in one of the on-street parking spaces, move across the quaint, front gravelled area to enter the delightful abode.

The open-plan living space beholds a woodburning stove, making it a toasty spot during those cooler months, where you can cosy up on the Chesterfield sofa and watch a family-favourite on the Smart TV.

When you're feeling peckish, progress to the kitchen, where tasty meals can be fixed up on the large gas range and other top-notch appliances available; the space also hosts a washing machine, for extra convenience.

Dinner can be enjoyed at the close-by dining table, as you discuss the day's events.

In the evening, continue through the property to find two tastefully decorated bedrooms, a double enjoying built-in storage and a full-length mirror, and a twin; both bedrooms share access to a well-presented shower room, where you can wash the day away in the walk-in cubicle.

To the side of the property is an enclosed patio, where you can unwind in the sun as you savour a morning coffee.

Portsoy not only boasts a welcoming pub and convenience store but is home to a range of sights to see, including the idyllic Links Bay Beach and Redhythe Point, as well as the fascinating Salmon Bothy Museum.

Continue along the coast to Banff, where the intriguing Museum of Banff and the Fordyce Joiners Workshop & Visitor Centre Await, as well as the breath-taking Duff House and Duff House Royal Golf Club.

The authenticity and charm of Portsoy harbour has featured in TV period dramas and shows, the latest was Peaky Blinders.

Portsoy is an ideal base to explore the coastal towns and villages on the North East 250, taking in distilleries, mountain passes, castles and the North Sea coastline.

Come to the annual Traditional Portsoy Boat Festival and experience authentic cultural experiences including boat building, folk music, crafts, childrens activities, traditional skills, food and drink.

About the location

PORTSOY

Cullen 6 miles; Banff 7 miles; Portknockie 8 miles.

Portsoy is an historic port situated mid-way between the towns of Cullen and Banff on the pretty Moray Firth coast and is one of the many atmospheric fishing ports scattered along this impressive stretch of the north east coastline of Scotland. Boasting two harbours, one old and one new and with excellent local facilities including hotels, pubs and shops, Portsoy is a wonderful holiday destination as well as being near to the famous Malt Whisky Trail. The area is awash with quality golf courses with fabulous coastal views and the coastal path is perfect for walkers who want to enjoy the unspoilt beauty of the area and roam freely on its lovely beaches. A visit to the Salmon Bothy is a must to get a real feel of the interesting history of Portsoy and hear the story of the area as a trading, fishing and smuggling port.
