  • “What a lovely cottage, in such a beautiful setting.”

    Really well equipped, very clean, and everything has been thought of. Right by the little harbour and adjacent beach in an idyllic location. We were a little apprehensive about the staircase having no handrail, because that's how it appeared in the photographs online, but actually there are banisters so it is perfectly safe. The only thing we felt lacking was a proper door to cover the shower - we just needed to keep drying out the floor towel.

The property

Portsoy 3 miles.

This well-presented, former fisherman’s cottage is based in the quaint fishing village of Sandend, near Portsoy in Scotland.

Situated right on the harbour front, the recently refurbished cottage boasts a wonderfully modern interior while still keeping in touch with the traditional roots of the property and location.

Entering through the back door, you will meet by the open-plan living area, comprised of a cosy sitting area with log burner, helping you unwind after a day out.

Into the kitchen area you will find a well-equipped setup to satisfy your culinary requirements, along with a dining table for mealtimes.

Completing the ground floor is the shower room and utility room, which houses a washer and dryer.

Upstairs are the two bedrooms, consisting of a double and a twin, with sloping, low ceiling and doorways.

Sandend has a beautiful beach with golden sands stretching across the wide bay, perfect for swimming and surfing.

Walkers will be delighted to know there are several foot path trails and from the adjoining cliff tops you can sometimes see dolphins, seals and Orca.

In the village there is a working fish-house where you can purchase freshly caught fish, or larger grocery shopping can be accessed in the Co-ops of Portsoy or Cullen.

After all the sightseeing, return to the comfort of this cottage to relax and plan for tomorrows outings.

About the location

PORTSOY

Cullen 6 miles; Banff 7 miles; Portknockie 8 miles.

Portsoy is an historic port situated mid-way between the towns of Cullen and Banff on the pretty Moray Firth coast and is one of the many atmospheric fishing ports scattered along this impressive stretch of the north east coastline of Scotland. Boasting two harbours, one old and one new and with excellent local facilities including hotels, pubs and shops, Portsoy is a wonderful holiday destination as well as being near to the famous Malt Whisky Trail. The area is awash with quality golf courses with fabulous coastal views and the coastal path is perfect for walkers who want to enjoy the unspoilt beauty of the area and roam freely on its lovely beaches. A visit to the Salmon Bothy is a must to get a real feel of the interesting history of Portsoy and hear the story of the area as a trading, fishing and smuggling port.
