    “Lovely cottage in a lovely location.”

    It had al we needed (even if the main oven wasn't working) it is over the road from the beach and it was super peaceful and quiet. Thank you for the welcome basket, My husband enjoyed the wine and Teddie loved his treats.

The property

This fabulous semi-detached cottage is located yards from the seafront in the old fishing village of Portessie near Buckie.

This delightful property is ideal for families, couples or a group of friends looking for a coastal break away in Scotland's 'sunniest north east coast'.

Lovingly furnished throughout with wood flooring on the ground floor, this cottage offers a spacious well-equipped kitchen with dining area, a lovely sociable space where you can keep the cook in your party entertained as they rustle up a tasty meal; there is even a TV so the chef doesn’t miss out on any sporting action.

Afterwards retire to the comfortable lounge and relax in front of the warming electric flame-effect fire as you plan the next day’s adventures.

Also on the ground floor is a modern shower room.

Stairs lead up to the first floor where there are two very well-appointed bedrooms; a double and a twin that even has its own settee.

A further steeper staircase leads up to the second floor where a fantastic king-size double makes the most of the available space.

On warmer evenings step outside to the pretty enclosed rear patio area and enjoy a refreshing drink or a barbecue.

The nearby town of Buckie offers a good selection of shops and pubs and the coastline is peppered with pretty fishing villages and wonderful beaches that are perfect to stroll along.

The Moray Firth is famous for its dolphins so why not enjoy a boat trip from Buckie and enjoy a bit of wildlife spotting?

You may even be lucky enough to see them showing off around the boat.

There are several golf courses along this coastline to keep the golfers amongst the party well-entertained.

Walkers will enjoy the Moray Coastal Trail which stretches for over 50 miles from Findhorn to Cullen and everywhere in between.

Alternatively head inland and pick up the famous Malt Whisky Trail where the non-drivers amongst you can partake in some tasting sessions at the various distilleries along the way.

Return to this wonderful property at the end of your day and relax together.

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.
