Oil central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Travel cot available on request. Highchair. Welcome pack. Sitting-out area with garden furniture and barbecue. 1-acre garden (shared with owner). Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note: The property has a natural water supply from a borehole. There are 2 steps in the garden.

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 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. 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.

    Third year in a row we stayed at tThe Brae, and it only gets better - not by much as it’s always been outstanding. New coffee shop in Portknockie now allows dogs and is worth a visit. The Royal Oak in Cullen also allows dogs and served great food. We have holidayed in the Moray Firth for many years, and this is the best value accommodation we have stayed in. Spotless - like moving into a new house.

    This was our second holiday at The Brae which is probably the best recommendation we can make. It is very clean and comfortable and in a lovely location; it's very quiet although that may change a bit during harvest time given that the property is overlooking a wide expanse of fields growing cereals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the spectacular weather ensured the double doors on the front the property were opened wide for uninterrupted views of the sea. The local hares are quite entertaining too!

    The Brae Steading is a fantastic holiday cottage which offers everything you’ll need for a memorable getaway. The cottage is cosy and comfortable with everything to a high standard. The location is stunning, with amazing views and beautiful dark night skies. Within walking distance to the local village and nearby harbour town ( under 3 miles) also within a 10 minute drive to a glorious dog friendly beach. Just over an hours drive takes you to Inverness or Aberdeen. We highly recommend The Brae Steading after spending a fantastic weeks holiday there. It was a truly perfect holiday that we didn’t want to end.

    A second stay at The Brae Steading and I hope it won't be my last. The hosts are very welcoming (welcome tray including treats for the dog and milk in the fridge are lovely touches) but are not intrusive. It's a wonderful place to unwind whilst still being close to plenty of places to visit if that is what you are looking for. The hosts provide lots of suggestions for walks which I'm still working my way through. Looking forward to my next visit.
