The crate of treats, cake and bottle of wine was a great touch very much appreciated. My favourite part of the stay was the amazing sunrises looking over the harbour each morning. For the kids it was the freedom to play on the beach with the provided buckets, spades and fishing nets. The property is in an amazing location in Stonehaven harbour a very short walk from The Marine (recommended for food and drinks in the evening) and Cool Gourmet (coffee shop) on the nearby High Street.
