This detached barn conversion, adjacent to the owner’s home, is located just outside the lovely conservation village of Fordyce, 1½ miles from the Moray coast. A magical place, the village is a warren of narrow streets and beautiful houses still following a medieval plan, and all wrapped around a magnificent centrepiece, Fordyce Castle, simply sitting on a bend in the village street. The holiday cottage is very spacious, comfortable and warm, and takes advantage of the panoramic views of both sea and countryside, with the arched French doors in the living room leading to a sunny sitting-out area at the front. Set within 1 acre of private grounds with dedicated guest outside area with garden furniture and BBQ available.

Fordyce also offers an attractive park opposite the old kirkyard as well as a Victorian garden. The sandy beach at Sandend is a quick drive or a 45-minute walk from the cottage, where local fish can be bought and surfers enjoy the waves. Good coastal walks abound through the old fishing villages of Portsoy and Cullen, or alternatively travel inland through castle and whisky country. There are plenty of golf courses in the vicinity, and the variety of bird and wildlife both onshore and off will please the keen nature lover. Shop, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

Our return visit to the beautiful and tranquil Brae Steadings, was wonderful again. It was an amazing week, in an outstanding venue, which is a well equipped “home for home". There is great attention to detail, including a brilliant welcome pack. Our stay was peaceful, relaxing and amazing. Thank you to our lovely hosts. We will be back!

Superbly presented holiday accommodation in a wonderful setting. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful during our two week stay. The adjacent barn was ideal for storage of bikes, golf clubs, etc. Have already booked for 2023.
