    A superb place to rest and get away from the bustle of city life.

    This is a lovely old fisherman’s cottage with lots of character, and a short walk from the sea. The cottage was clean and comfortable – very well furnished with lots of beautiful model ships and various nautical pictures and artefacts. It is in a good location near Buckie which has many shops, and is not far from pretty fishing villages such as Findochty, Portknockie and Portsoy. The short lane leading to the cottage is very narrow with tight corners, so care is needed when driving. The cottage has central heating, but it would be nice to be able to control the timing, as we found the cottage quickly gets cold after the central heating switches off. There is a good log burner in the living room, but it would be useful to have some portable electrical heaters. The kitchen has all the essentials, but the fridge/freezer is in an awkward position. It would be good to improve the guttering over the back door, because you get quite wet entering or leaving the back door when it’s raining – the gutter does not catch the water flowing down the sloping roof. The WiFi service was great – the best we’ve experienced in Scottish holiday cottages over the years.

    A very comfortable, clean cottage, yet full of character. Lovely walks by the sea just about 100 yds away. Nearby fishing villages are delightful; Shopping in Buckie and restaurants are all nearby. Wifi, 2 tv rooms, log burner, comfortable bed - what more could you want:-)

    We had a lovely holiday here. The weather was the best we've had all summer. What a change it was to see some blue sky. The cottage is well equiped with all you could think of for a home from home experience. The beds are really comfortable. It was an excellent base for seeing what Moray and Aberdeenshire had to offer. The cottage is full of character and you got a real sense of history. I would recommend Boatmans Cottage for your holiday.

    Very comfortable, and homely, excellent facilities including WiFi, DVD, two bathrooms, gas cooker. Not a good idea to have two cars, as in close proximity to other properties.
