The property

With a stunning sun room providing panoramic sea views this well-presented fisherman's cottage makes a great holiday home in the village of Portknockie.

Seascape is a spacious, smart detached stone cottage with close proximity to the sea and is ideal for a family or group of friends wanting to spend time together and explore the north east coastline of Scotland which has so much to recommend it.

The generously proportioned ground floor of the cottage comprises a large open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a woodburning stove, where guests will gather at the end of a busy day to chat while the meals are being prepared.

A step up from this room is the stunning sun room which offers uninterrupted views out to sea and is a quiet place for relaxation and reflection, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine while watching a summer sunset.

If you are lucky, you might even see a pod of dolphins passing.

There is also a smart sitting room with open fire and a shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.

The upper floor has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom both benefiting from sea views along with a family bathroom.

For adults and children this coastline is fabulous with rocky cliffs, golden sandy beaches and pretty villages and the nearby village of Cullen with enhanced facilities can actually be accessed via a coastal walk of about a mile.

A holiday in this area means that so much is accessible and both the cities of Aberdeen and Inverness can be visited making great days out.

This tasteful and welcoming cottage ticks all the boxes and ensures a fabulous holiday on a wonderful coastline.

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.
