    We loved our break here - absolute peace and tranquility. The house catered for all our needs and was very cosy in what was a cold but bright mid-November week. We had a trip down memory lane playing records on the record player and there was plenty space for us to bring our dog. Locally we visited Sandend beach most days and used our Historic Scotland card to visit many or their locations, including Elgin Cathedral, Dallas Dhu Distillery, Duff House and Kinnaird Head Lighthouse and Museum. The owners were extremely welcoming and we felt that we walked away having made new friends of them too. We have raved about our holiday here and will be back.

    Beautiful cosy cottage, stunning location, lots of wildlife, lovely owners, many local villages and harbours to visit close by. We spent a few lunchtimes in the cafe in Portsoy harbour eating Cullen Skink and oatcakes followed by sticky toffee pudding with ice cream....delicious and warming!!! We had a fabulous relaxing holiday and were sad to leave but hope to return. We highly recommend this cottage.

    It is the place where I want to live. Dave our host was so helpful and very kind for all our requests. The cottage is so cosy and warmth ambiance. Decoration, all amenities are perfect. The location is nearest the beach, 5 mn ,the garden and the precints are perfects. Also if we have some rain time but the warmth of the place was enough positive for our holidays. We sure come back next year. Thanks. Patricia&Uwe
