  • Mr Mcclure

    “St. Magnus Haven was my home away from home, well equipped and really comfortable.”


    Lashings of hot water and central heating kept me nice and warm. It's a lovely property and I had no problems at all in my week there. The WiFi speed was really good, my Amazon Firestick worked without a hitch on the TV. The village is quiet but I went to get away from it all and myself and my dog enjoyed the shingle beach outside the property and Aderdour Bay which is just a bit east and only a short drive away. There are no shops or facilities in the village itself, and sadly the Inn was shut during my visit. Banff and Fraserborough offer the usual supermarket and other facilities and both are just a short drive.

The property

A white-washed fisherman's cottage situated in the quaint hamlet of Pennan, Aberdeenshire.

This property lies within a row of cottages backed by cliffs and facing the seafront, with only a narrow road separating it from a rocky beach.

In this remote area, you can only be contacted here if you want to be, making it the perfect bolthole for couples wanting a tranquil retreat from the rush and noise of everyday life.

The living accommodation in the property consists of a homely sitting room complete with comfortable sofas and open fire overlooking the cove, a cosy spot for warming up after a day's hiking.

The small galley kitchen has everything you need for cooking some tasty meals together and has a dining space at one end to sit and enjoy them.

A second door leading from the kitchen brings you to a bright sun room with more dining space, ideal for taking your morning coffee or enjoying breakfast.

The bathroom and dual-aspect bedroom are on the opposite side of the house, the latter of which featuring a double bedroom and beautiful views over the cove as well as over the garden.

At the back of the property is an enclosed patio garden reached by a door from the sun room.

It is surrounded by white-washed walls in keeping with the cottage's exterior and has a space with patio furniture for sitting out in the afternoon sun.

Pennan consists of two rows of fisherman's cottages, including a hotel.

For shops, galleries, tearooms and a village pub with meals and drinks available, the village of Gardenstown is a short drive with a selection of pubs, and supermarkets with petrol station, also offering a picturesque harbour.

The town of Banff is also a short drive away offering a number of attractions and activities as well as Fraserburgh with its renowned lighthouse.

St Magnus Haven is a serene base for those wanting to explore the beauty of the Northern Scottish coast.

About the location


Banff 8 miles; Fraserburgh 17 miles; Aberdeen 32 miles; Elgin 43 miles.

The port village of Gardenstown is often linked with neighbouring Gamrie and Crovie as one community, and was founded in 1720 by Alexander Garden as a fishing village. Gardenstown borders a small sandy bay with stunning scenery flanking both sides. The village has a pub serving food all year and a restaurant, galleries and several tea rooms in season. A steep road leads you through the ancient, narrow and winding streets to the harbour where many small boats are moored. The neighbouring town of Banff boasts a relaxing sandy beach and a variety of fascinating architecture in contrasting styles, exemplified by Duff House, an impressive Georgian mansion open to visitors and home to paintings and artefacts from the National Galleries of Scotland. Banff and the surrounding area also have a good selection of shops, restaurants and hotels, which serve a fine selection of local sea foods, whilst nearby Pennan, a beautiful old smugglers village, was the location for the movie 'Local Hero'. The whole area is an ideal tourist destination, being on the North East Tourist Trail, with easy access to coastal paths and the Whisky and Castle Trails, as well as numerous golf courses, fishing, sailing, dolphin watching, surfing, climbing, great walking and of course, stunning sunsets and fabulous scenery. The Grampian and Cairngorm mountains are easily accessible for day excursions, and the North East of Scotland is protected from prevailing winds and has the driest Scottish climate with virtually no midges.

Parking: Free parking anywhere in the village and on the street outside the property.
Please note: Bookings are Saturday to Saturday but out of season short breaks may be possible in negotiation with the owner.
