The property

A sweet and charming, traditional, detached stone cottage in the popular village of Findhorn, on the stunning Moray Firth coast.

This Findhorn cottage is quietly situated on a pedestrian lane and yet enjoys the close proximity of the village and harbour facilities just a short stroll away.

Very well-appointed throughout, this Findhorn cottage is a good choice for family or friends who will appreciate the unspoilt golden sandy beaches, pretty coves and amazing wildlife that this area has to offer.

There are three bedrooms providing flexible sleeping arrangements across the two floors, plus a contemporary shower room at ground floor level and a luxury bathroom on the first floor.

A very well-equipped kitchen with dining area and a tastefully presented sitting room with welcoming woodburner ensures your every need is catered for in this Moray Firth cottage.

Outside, a small front garden bursting with flowers and seasonal sweet-smelling roses, is the perfect place for an early evening glass of wine before dinner.

Findhorn has excellent local facilities and much to offer visitors with activities that range from powerboat courses to white water rafting and boat trips out onto the waters for some magical dolphin watching.

Close by is the busy town of Forres, with its beautiful parks, and for walkers and cyclists, nearby Culbin Forest offers a fascinating network of tracks to explore, some leading to the most idyllic sandy beaches you will ever uncover!

Findhorn has been named alongside top tourist destinations including Rome, Madrid and Paris. Financial website Business Insider UK placed the village at number 13 on a shortlist of Europe's coolest neighbourhoods to visit in 2018.

About the location

FINDHORN

Kinloss 3 miles; Forres 5 miles; Elgin 13 miles.

Findhorn was at one time a very busy fishing port, and still preserves its strong connections with the sea today, with much of its village life centred around the bay, and fantastic sailing and watersports opportunities available with the Royal Findhorn Sailing Club resting on the waterfront. Its scenic location and gentle climate, influence by the Gulf Stream, make it a desirable destination. It is perhaps best known for being the home to the world-famous Findhorn Foundation, with its Ecovillage and international centre for holistic education. Findhorn boast two pubs, two cafes, an organic bakery and a local store, and is well placed for visiting the many pretty ports and villages nestled along the Moray Firth coastline. The Malt Whiskey Trail can be joined close by and the Cairngorm National Park can be found within an hour’s drive. The hub of the Highlands, the city of Inverness, is just 25 miles to the west, and is well worth a day trip, where you will discover its historic buildings and atmospheric NT Culloden Battlefield.
