The property

Fraserburgh 5.5 miles.

Resting in the pretty fishing village of St Combs is this charming property, Viola Cottage.

Offering four guests a homely spot from which to explore the wonders of the Scottish coast, Viola Cottage is in a wonderful location for visiting Fraserburgh, Loch of Strathbeg and Banff, whether it be a last minute romantic getaway or family summer holiday.

With an all ground-floor layout, this cottage is ideal for those less able, with a sitting room with a sofa and two armchairs to relax on and a TV for entertainment after a busy day.

Discover the lovely fitted kitchen/diner with all the essentials for a self-catered stay, including an electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge, you can rustle up some tasty meals and delight in an evening around the dining table full of conversation with your loved ones.

The bathroom is home to a bath with an overhead shower, so you can choose how best to prepare for the day, either with a relaxing soak or a quick shower!

Retire to one of the two neat bedrooms at the end of the day, with a double and a twin, both boasting storage for your things.

A spacious garden lies outside, surrounded by a five foot hedge, making a wonderful spot to enjoy in the summer months, with a lawned area and a patio with seating and providing a great place for your four-legged friend to stretch their legs.

Begin exploring the area with a walk along St Combs Bay, with a lovely 5-mile stretch of sands to ramble on, before coming to the outflow of Loch of Strathbeg, continue on to the Rattray Head Lighthouse, or cut the walk shorted by heading inland and coming back to the quaint fishing village via the dunes and farmland.

Loch of Strathbeg Nature Reserve is Britain's largest dune loch and is an RSPB site with a host of different bird species reliant on the loch as a wintering habitat, it is home to a visitor centre and is the perfect outing for any wildlife lovers!

Take a trip over to the town of Fraserburgh to find a host of interesting attractions; marvel at the full-size lighthouse built in the middle of a 16th century castle at Kinnaird Head Castle and The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, learn about the life of a fisherwoman in a lovingly restored cottage at Maggie's Hoosie, enjoy a scenic walk through woodland at Strichen Community Park, home to Strichen Stone Circle and delight in the stunning Fraserburgh Harbour and Beach earning a Green Coast Award and offering the chance to spot some dolphins too!

About the location


Peterhead 17 miles; Portsoy 33 miles; Aberdeen 40 miles.

Fraserburgh is situated just along the north east coast from Aberdeen and borders the mouth of the Moray Firth. Whilst it is still a busy fishing port the number of boats has decreased dramatically over the years, although todays boats are far bigger than they were in bygone days. The town itself is a real community with a strong Football team and impressive 18 hole golf course, the 7th oldest club in the world believe it not, established in 1777. With its modern clubhouse vistors are most welcome and can enjoy the bar, dining room and lounge areas that overlook the course and sand dunes. The mueseum of Scottish Liighthouses is based in Fraserburgh and is well worth a visit and gives a real insight to the history of the Lighthouses in the north of Scotland. Fraserburgh is a beautiful seaside town with a rich history and an award winning beach. Inverallochy 18 hole golf course is within walking distance of Fraserburgh. Nearby is the RSPB Loch of Strathbeg which is one of the best places for wildlife in the UK as well as Aden Country Park within easy reach with 230 acres of parkland to enjoy.
