The cottage is very well equipped; very nice furnished bedroom and bathroom downstairs. The kitchen has everything we need and the living room area is very comfortable. From previous trips we can say that the little stove is especially wonderful in winter time! This summer time we enjoyed the beautiful garden outside for breaks in the sun. Lovely! For us 6 Seatown is the nicest and best equipped holiday cottage we stayed in so far and we will be back soon, being home from home again. Lossiemouth itself is a little gem on the coast and has two incredible beaches that are great to take long walks. Nearby there are lots of things to explore, e.g. make a boat trip along the coast from Buckie to Cullen (Gemini Explorer), visit the Speyside area and see how the distilleries work, take a tour to Inverness or make a walk through Elgin and visit the cathedral.
