    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in GRACE Cottage. The accommodation is very well presented with lots of space in the lounge/dining area with a good sized kitchen. Every room was furnished beautifully and in spotless condition. There is plenty of information of what is happening locally and we tried out the coastal walks to Cullen and Findochty, which we would definitely recommend!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in GRACE Cottage. The accommodation is very well presented with lots of space in the lounge/dining area with a good sized kitchen. Every room was furnished beautifully and in spotless condition. There is plenty of information of what is happening locally and we tried out the coastal walks to Cullen and Findochty, which we would definitely recommend! Tried the fish and chips from the chip shop and they were delicious!! Also visited Lossiemouth – beautiful sandy beach – great to walk along and watch the jets doing “circuit and bumps”. Findhorn – lovely walk around the harbour and beach. 2 pubs serving local seafood as well. Cardhu Distillery – part of the Speyside Whisky Trail. It was our first trip to this part of Scotland and we can definitely say we will return.

The property

Centrally situated in the popular coastal village of Portknockie, this smart fisherman's cottage is the perfect venue for a great holiday.

With lots of space and oozing comfort and style, it is ideal for a family or group of friends who will simply love the close proximity to the sea and the fabulous scenery.

There are three tastefully presented bedrooms with crisp white bed linen, one of which is on the ground floor.

The open plan living area has a dining area where guests will enjoy sharing meals and stories around the massive table before relaxing on the comfortable sofas at the end of an active day.

The well-equipped kitchen ensures that cooking these meals is an easy task.

On warmer days the private rear garden and patio will be appreciated as a place to enjoy a morning coffee or for dining alfresco.

Just a few steps away is the fabulous Moray Firth coast with its rocky cliffs, golden sands and numerous pretty little fishing villages dotted along its coastline.

From Portknockie visitors can take an easy walk along the shoreline into the larger village of Cullen with its golden sands and perhaps enjoy lunch out before retracing their steps home.

A holiday in Portknockie means that not only can you explore the wonderful coastline and watch the famous dolphins as they jump past, but it is ideally located to venture inland and perhaps pick up the famous Malt Whisky Trail or even visit the city of Aberdeen to the east and Inverness to the west.

The north east coast of Scotland is a truly perfect holiday destination with lovely scenery and fabulous wildlife and this charming cottage is a real home from home.

The popular coastal village of Portknockie occupies a stunning, cliff-top position overlooking a natural picturesque harbour on the striking Moray Firth Coast. Explore the craggy cliff-tops, beaches and secret coves or absorb the dramatic views of the Bow Fiddle Rock, or look out for the dolphins, seals and sea birds that live in the Moray Firth. National Cycle Route 1 also passes through Portknockie. Why not visit the delightful town of Cullen, situated beneath spectacular railway viaducts and renowned for its hearty Cullen Skink (smoked haddock and potato soup) or enjoy a spot of golf at the remarkable golf course? 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 and Castle Trail, 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.
