On walking through the door we knew we were in for a good stay. The house from top to bottom was spotless, which is something I am extremely fussy about. We had everything that we needed including peace. The only complaint is that I could not get a good score on the snooker table :) Thank you all for your hospitality.

The apartment clean, well-maintained, and spacious for 2. We received excellent customer service and were treated more like a life-long friend than a customer. Stonehaven harbor is just outside the door with several restaurants and pubs near by. The downtown area is a short walk away. Dunnottar Castle is a healthy hike with the trailhead at the end of the harbor. Lots of sights to see on days trips by car. We had a few opportunities to sit outside of the Marine Restaurant and Pub. Nothing like enjoying a few fine cast ales while looking out across the harbor. We would recommend this to friends and family. We have more trips to Scotland planned and will hopefully stay here again.
