Mark met us at the property and was very friendly and helpful. He even, very kindly, unpacked our Tesco's order which had arrived an hour early. My husband and son took advantage of the free session with the Cullen sea school run by Mark's son and had a great hour kayaking and paddle boarding. We had a wonderful holiday at Slater's and would wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone.

The property

Situated in the heart of the friendly and welcoming village of Portknockie is this detached stone-built fisherman's cottage offering smart and extremely comfortable accommodation.

With lots of space spread out over two floors, SLATER'S is a traditional Grade C listed property in the conservation part of Portknockie.

For many years a general hardware store owned by the Slater family, this is an ideal venue for a large family or group of friends who want to explore the fabulous North East coastline of Scotland.

At ground floor level there is the sumptuous master bedroom with en-suite facilities and also a cosy stacker bedroom that can double up as a snug, with a PlayStation 3 and games to keep the children (and adults) very happy indeed.

The sitting/dining room has a welcoming woodburning stove to ensure cosy nights in and relaxed meals around the dining table.

The contemporary kitchen has a breakfast area and every appliance necessary to allow for the easy preparation of great meals.

An external door from the kitchen gives access to the private patio at the rear of the cottage, a great place for quiet morning coffee or a pre-dinner glass of wine.

The upper floor has a bright, fresh shower room and also a double and twin bedroom both benefiting from large bay windows providing pretty views across the rooftops to the sea, or to watch the sun setting over the Caithness Hills.

Being centrally situated there is easy access to the local shops, pub, hotel, chip shop and the lovely harbour, with its outdoor swimming pool for children to enjoy during the summer months.

This part of Scotland has many pretty villages dotted along the rugged coastline.

The Moray Firth is famous for its jumping dolphins and they can be seen from land or by taking one of the many boat trips out onto the open sea.

Walkers and wildlife spotters will be in paradise; there’s so much to see and experience in this delightful corner of Scotland.

This wonderful cottage will ensure a fabulous holiday for all!

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.
