Description

This holiday home offers wonderful accommodation filled with traditional features and boasts a truly wonderful location in ’Castle Country’.

The Old Merchant House is a stunning 18th-century old smugglers’ house on the historic harbour front at Portsoy with stunning sea views. Built in 1726 the house is packed with original features including exposed beams, wooden floors and a wood burner situated in the original 18th-century stone fireplace. Accommodation is over three floors, sleeping 6 in three comfortable bedrooms, while from the kitchen and living room; guests can enjoy the marvellous seascape and activities of the 17th-century harbour. A good pub and coffee shop are within yards of the house, with all the other shops and eateries just a short walk away. This part of the north east of Scotland is often referred to as ’Castle Country’, being home to around a thousand castles or castle ruins, providing a wealth of history to explore. Along the coast there is an abundance of wildlife to see.
