  • “This is undoubtedly the most expensively and well equipped holiday cottage that I have ever stayed in, in the past 20-25 years.”

    Where else would you find a pair of Tartan clad armchairs, and on each one, a 'toy daschaund' clad in exactly the same tartan. The television was enormous, and perfect, seemingly with all the Sky bells and whistles already paid for. Everything was top quality. ...

    Where else would you find a pair of Tartan clad armchairs, and on each one, a 'toy daschaund' clad in exactly the same tartan. The television was enormous, and perfect, seemingly with all the Sky bells and whistles already paid for. Everything was top quality. I slept extremely well, the kitchen was very well equipped, and the upstairs bathroom had underfloor heating. The village of Portknockie was lovely, a Spar shop 2 doors away for early morning rolls and newspapers, and plenty of parking on the road. The Chippie, about 50 yards away, serves an enormous menu, very efficiently, and all of superb quality. This was my first visit to this part of Scotland. The beaches were superb, I especially liked Cullen Beach, but be careful of the tide, although you can always escape up the bank to the footpath beside the golf club. There is an enormous range of tourist attractions in this part of Scotland, loads of very interesting shops in all the towns and larger villages, and everyone is 'So Very Friendly'. There are probably 20 or so Whiskey Distilleries within 2 miles, and I didn't find time to visit even one of them! { but I was also driving}. Go again - you bet !!!

The property

This lovely detached, stone cottage is in the fishing village of Portknockie on the stunning north east coast of Scotland.

This charming cottage offers spacious and tasteful accommodation, ideal for a family or group of friends who want a seaside location with easy access to a wide range of activities.

The cottage has a well-equipped modern kitchen complete with a Nespresso coffee machine, where you can cook fabulous meals to be enjoyed in the lovely dining room, and there is also an attractive sitting room.

The cottage has the added benefit of TVs in both the kitchen and the lounge with Sky multi-room and features Sky Sports HD and BT Sport HD so you don’t have to miss out if you are the chef in the party!.

If music is more your thing then the lounge, kitchen and master bedroom all benefit from a Sonos sound system so the mood can be set for however you are feeling.

The cottage offers three comfortable double king-size bedrooms, two of which are en-suite, and one is on the ground floor with TV.

To complete the accommodation, there is a ground floor family bathroom.

At the rear of this lovely cottage there is a neat and fully enclosed garden providing a choice of seating areas, and from here you can see the sea whilst you sip a cool glass of wine on a sunny summer evening.

The village itself has good local facilities including a local grocer's shop just a few yards away from your attractive cottage and there is a pub just a little further away.

The nearby town of Cullen offers opportunities for shopping and dining, and the many fishing villages along the coast all have their own shops and restaurants, each with individual charm and catering to all tastes.

Whether you decide to visit the many lovely beaches along the coast, play golf on the breathtaking links courses, search for dolphins and wildlife or simply indulge yourself in the fascinating history of the area, you will love it all, and it's all easily accessible from the cottage.

About the location

PORTKNOCKIE

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 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.
