  • “Lovely place, both the house and the village.”

    Full of character and we loved wandering out to the beach/harbour/courtyard with our cup of tea. It’s quite compact because of the nature of the cottages - that’s it’s charm - but they’ve made the most of the space. Would be cosy with 6 people in it, especially if they were all adults.

The property

A well-presented, former fisherman's cottage based in the coastal fishing village of Sandend, near Portsoy in Scotland.

Boasting a delightful stone exterior, with a modern interior design, stunning wooden flooring and a wonderful open-plan layout, this property offers a warm and welcoming feeling from the moment you step through the door.

Spend your evenings in the lounge area, which offers plenty of seating to relax and unwind on, with the lovely woodburning stove to keep you warm during those chilly winter evenings.

The kitchen boasts a Velux roof window, which gives the room an abundance of natural light, with all integrated appliances in a pristine white finish.

There is also a ground floor shower room making it ideal for those with limited mobility.

A further two bedrooms rest on the first floor, consisting of a super king-size and twin setup, with a range of modern furniture to store your personal items.

Sandend is a delightfully quaint small conservation village where traditional fishermen’s cottages were built around the 19th Century ‘C ‘Listed harbour in period format, with the Gables facing the sea for weather protection.

It has a beautiful beach with golden sands stretching across the wide bay where you can swim and Surf.

A Surf School was set up in 2017, attracted by the impressive waves.

From Easter to Autumn the beach is occupied with happy sand–castle builders and rock pool explorers, surfers and joggers.

There are many foot path trails and from the adjoining cliff tops you can spot Dolphins, seals and Orca.

Visitors frequently sit at the Harbour picnic tables, enjoying a leisurely lunch looking out to sea or an evening glass of wine watching the sunset.

About the location

SANDEND

Portsoy 3 miles; Cullen 3 miles.

Sandend is a small historical village dating from the 1600’s and boasts a fabulous bay, golden sands and a harbour. Sandend is one of the smallest fishing villages on the north east coast, but due to its close proximity to the larger village of Portsoy and town of Cullen, means that it benefits from the excellent facilities nearby, whilst retaining a quieter and more peaceful ambience. Whilst there are no shops and pubs within Sandend itself, it does boast a fabulous smokery meaning there is no shortage of fresh fish, plus at the east end of Sandend Bay you can enjoy whisky sampling at Glenglassaugh Distillery. Sandend is perfectly located for visiting the many pretty fishing villages scattered along the north east coast, all of which have their own history and excellent local services. The area also offers opportunities for golfing, fishing, sailing, surfing, cycling, birdwatching and beach walking. Whatever the weather the scenery in this part of Scotland is stunning.
