A spacious detached stone cottage in immaculate order throughout, situated in the charming fishing village of Portknockie.

Just yards from the sea, this Portknockie cottage offers pristine accommodation throughout and the kitchen area with its comfortable armchairs and large dining table forms the heart of this cottage.

Ideal for a family or group of friends, this Portknockie cottage will not disappoint, and its close proximity to hotels, pubs and a convenient chip shop is ideal!

The accommodation within this Portknockie cottage offers great flexibility as it has a family bathroom and two double bedrooms on the upper floor, one of which has an en-suite shower room, and on the ground floor there is a single bedroom and a twin room, along with the added bonus of a shower room on the ground floor too.

The sitting room is very cosy, with a big TV, and the kitchen/diner has a second TV and doors that open out onto a private courtyard and lawn, a great place for alfresco dining.

From the front door of this Portknockie cottage you can look down the road and see the sea.

A few hundred yards away is a traditional pub, and almost as close is a busy local shop ideal for picking up the daily papers.

If you decide to take the car there is so much to see and this north east coastline is peppered with lovely fishing villages, all with their own unique atmosphere and charm.

This is a golfer's paradise too with four golf courses within a small area.

About the location


Cullen 2 miles; Findochty 2 miles; Buckie 5 miles; Elgin 20 miles.

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 from 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 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.
