The property

Buckie 1.3 miles.

A charming stone, fisherman's cottage situated close to Buckie, on the Moray Firth coast.

Sonas is ideal for a family group or group of friends who will appreciate its facilities and location.

This cosy and welcoming cottage is presented to a high standard with great care and attention to detail.

Quietly situated away from the main coastal road up a little side street, the ground floor has a lovely sitting room with a woodburner, a smart shower room and a well-equipped kitchen with dining area.

Both bedrooms are on the upper floor, one a double and one with both a double and single bed.

An adjoining building not only provides the laundry facilities but also stores the outside furniture and on pleasant days guests can sit outside the cottage and enjoy a morning coffee whilst planning the day’s events.

The busy town of Buckie is just next door and has its own harbour and marina along with excellent shopping and dining out venues.

There are a multitude of golf courses along this coastline and for walkers this is paradise with the Moray Coastal Trail stretching for approximately 50 miles from Findhorn to Cullen and all the places in between.

Why not take a boat from Buckie and venture onto the waters of the Moray Firth and look out for the famous Moray Firth dolphins, various species of whale and a wide range of sea birds?

Sometimes the dolphins are regularly seen showing off around the boat so you may be lucky!

There is so much to do and if you leave the coast and venture in land you could pick up the famous Malt Whisky Trail and partake in a spot of tasting from the various distilleries along the route.

A lovely part of the world and this really sweet little cottage will be just perfect.

About the location


Buckie 1 mile; Cullen 5 miles; Elgin 18 miles.

Situated on the Moray Firth coast, Portessie is one of a number of old fishing villages that lie on a three-mile stretch of shoreline to the east of Buckie on Scotland's 'sunniest north east coast'. It's an unspoiled coastline, with dramatic cliff scenery, beautiful beaches and picturesque villages such as Gardenstown and Pennan. Families will love the extensive beach at Cullen and enjoy local opportunities to ride, golf and watch rare birdlife - the RSPB Reserve at Spey Bay is a must for keen birdwatchers. The Moray Firth has one of only two resident populations of Bottle-nosed dolphins in Britain and regular boat trips leave from Buckie and Macduff harbours on dolphin-watching expeditions. A wonderful base for a magical holiday experience.
