    “Perfect combination of a lovely home from home, beautiful beaches, cafes and the autumn weather gave us a lovely week away.”

    Moray Mirth is very comfortable with the most comfortable king size bed in main bedroom, lovely bathrooms, sonos sound system and a great kitchen if you plan to cook in. The enclosed garden is great if you have a dog.

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 which comes complete with an unlimited Deezer subscription so the mood can be set for however you’re 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


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.
