Centrally situated, this sweet, single-storey stone cottage is ideally placed to enjoy the many good local services that the friendly town of Lossiemouth has to offer.
This over 200-year old, semi-detached cottage is suitable for a couple or small group of friends who will appreciate its central location and enjoy the wonderful coastline with its many towns and villages just waiting to be explored.
Lilac Cottage has a welcoming open plan living area benefiting from a well-equipped, modern kitchen and comfortable sitting area with sofa bed and a dining space.
Both the bedroom and bathroom are fresh and smart and to the front of Lilac Cottage is a small private lawned garden, a bit of a sun trap and just a perfect spot for a quiet read.
Across the road from the property is a championship golf course, which non-members can enjoy.
The town, known locally as 'Lossie', has a wonderful marina and lovely sandy beaches so there is something for everyone here.
Most visitors to this part of the Moray Firth coast are keen to take one of the many boat rides out onto the waters to partake in some dolphin spotting or sea fishing.
Nearby Covesea Lighthouse is well worth a visit too and you can climb to the top of the tower and enjoy the spectacular views over the surrounding countryside.
Although this area has miles of sandy beaches and loads of wildlife you may wish to venture inland and pick up the famous Malt Whisky Trail with over 50 distilleries within easy reach.
With so much to see and do, this is a lovely wee cottage to be enjoyed at any time of year.
All ground floor. One king-size double bedroom. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with single sofa bed.
About the location
Elgin 6 miles.
Lossiemouth is known locally as ‘the Riviera of the north’ because of its location, which benefits from the effects of the Gulf Stream and therefore has a temperate climate. Situated on Scotland’s north east coast, Lossiemouth is a perfect holiday destination as it not only boasts a very rich and interesting history with lots of visitor attractions but is also perfectly located to offer a wide choice of outdoor pursuits. The town itself has a surprisingly good selection of shops, hotels, pubs and restaurants and its wonderful coastal location means that the sea is always lapping away in the background. A walk along the coastal road is a refreshing and exhilarating experience as is a round of golf on the course located beside the shoreline. If you like being out on the water then you can choose to go fishing or perhaps dolphin watching on one of the many boat trips available. West Beach is a beach that stretches for 3 miles, beside the famous Covesea Lighthouse and this area is a windsurfers dream. For hill walkers and cyclists there are many trails and routes to follow and along the way you will notice the wildlife all around you. The north east coast has many charming fishing villages and a short drive from one will lead you along to the next, each with its own history and atmosphere. Whether your choice of holiday is in the history, outdoor pursuits, wildlife, touring or simply relaxing, it is all here in bucket loads!
