The property

Jock McMuffin Cottage is a charming two-bedroom cottage perched in Portknockie on the Moray Coast.

Just up the road from Portknockie Beach, this family-friendly property sleeps four to welcome a small family or group of friends, and is perfect for those seeking a seaside getaway.

On entrance, you’ll find a kitchen/diner fully-equipped with everything you need to cook up your favourite feasts, and a door leading to a utility room and a terrace with a seating area for those who want to eat outside during warmer months.

Moving through the property, you can kick up your feet on the velvety sofas in the living room and catch the latest episode of your favourite show on the Smart TV.

As the sun begins to set, unwind from the day in either the bath or walk-in shower in the bathroom, then upstairs to get some rest in a twin or double room.

If you can tear yourself away from the cottage, make your way to the The Seafield Inn pub for a meal or grab a classic British delicacy at Portknockie Fish and Chip shop to enjoy on the beach just a short walk away.

Drive down to Speyside and meet the owls or walk with a hawk at Speyside Falconry or take a peaceful promenade along the pretty stretch of River Spey and marvel at the beauty of the woodland and Linn Falls.

No trip to Speyside would be complete without a visit to Speyside Cooperage, the only cooperage in Britain with a visitor centre, where you can experience the ancient art of coopering.

Take the scenic route to Aberdeen and bring the kids along for some educational fun and interactive exhibits at Aberdeen Science Centre, let out your inner child at Codona’s Amusement Park, and don’t forget to pack some lunch for a picnic at Cruickshank Botanic Garden.

Jock McMuffin Cottage is your ideal seaside escape.

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. Travel east where you will find the historic town of Banff home to an excellent golf club and the fascinating nearby Inchdrewer Castle. 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.
