    “Welcome pack located in the kitchen ...”
    Welcome pack located in the kitchen was a gods send after a six hour journey, and set the tone for the attention to detail provided by the owner Jeanette. Cottage was beautiful and we had a thoroughly relaxing week. Findochty is a lovely harbour town and the Moray coast is stunning. The cottage provides a kayak (Wet suits recommended) and fishing rods good fishing from the harbour.Would recommend Bijou by the sea which is only a three minute drive or 15 - 20 minute walk, the food is excellent ...

About the location

FINDOCHTY

Buckie 3 miles; Elgin 20 miles.

The delightful fishing village of Findochty, which dates back to the 1400s, sits on the edge of the natural harbour known as Crooked Haven. Nowadays, Findochty is used more by leisure sailors than fishermen, whilst the fishing boats have moved down the coast to Buckie. Findochty has a small sheltered beach at Long Head and a popular pub on the harbour front. Why not visit the delightful town of Cullen, situated beneath spectacular railway viaducts and renowned for its hearty smoked haddock and potato soup, or enjoy a spot of golf at either of the Cullen or Strathlene golf courses? Take a pleasant drive to the lively market town of Elgin, home to an imposing cathedral, museums and the mesmerising Biblical Gardens. With the whole of the Moray Coast to explore, with its Whisky Trail, an abundance of historic houses and gardens, sparkling golden sands and hospitable inns, this is a superb base from which to enjoy the delightful north east coast of Scotland.
