    “This is a lovely cottage in a quiet area but within driving distance of most places you would want to go, the beach is literally at the bottom of the road, great for walking the dog.”

    We had great weather so that was a bonus but I think had it been wet a tumble dryer would have been a bonus. ...

    We had great weather so that was a bonus but I think had it been wet a tumble dryer would have been a bonus. The cottage itself has everything you need and easily fits 5 adults, the top bedroom is reached by a very steep staircase, our friends said they got used to it by the end of the week! We thought it was a bit far out but after driving home down the west coast and seeing how busy it was we realised it really was a great place to stay. We saw seals at Port Gordon, dolphins at Chanonry Point, did a boat ride from Inverness and a Land Rover safari not far from Dufftown and a train ride on the Whisky Line and visited Glenfiddich Distillery, so there is lots to see and do it just involves a bit of driving. All the little towns along the coast are lovely. Great Ice cream at Portsoy, great fish and chips from Portknockie and lots of takeaway places in Buckie.

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.
