This cottage has the wow factor! There is a breath-taking dining room with a dark blue coloured concrete floor and pale blue “spatolato” finish walls and a wooden boxed ceiling. A specially designed crystal table sits on the flag-stones (originally covering the aisle of the church) in the middle of the room. When you look up, you’ll see how the pre owner has recycled the sides of the pews (still with numbers on!). There are 3 antique pitch-pine doors with impressive brass handles, two leading to the small bathrooms and a double one leading to the cosy sitting room. The sitting room has wood-lined walls (recycled from the back of the pews) with a settee and an armchair in front of an open fire. There is a small TV with DVD and Video player, a radio and a stereo with CD player.
The well equipped kitchen has a crystal ceiling to let in the morning sun, a large stainless steel fridge and freezer, electric cooker, dish-washer, washing machine, microwave and several kitchen machines like mixer and juicer(all hidden in the big wooden larder). There is plenty of crockery and cutlery, lots of pots and pans and utensils. There is an antique wooden table for breakfast. A central wooden staircase (built by the Macduff ship-builders with the recycled wood from the pews) leads to the two upstairs bedrooms; Sunset themed double-bedded room (with electric blanket) and green twin-bedded room. Both were created on galleries with original recycled pitch-pine floors. The bed heads and galleries were created from the original sides of the pews (still bearing the seat numbers). The sunset room incorporates a crystal floor overlooking the stainless steel kitchen, while the green room overlooks the dining room. There are Velux escape windows looking out onto the gorse-covered hill at the back and two little ones looking onto the North Sea at the front.
There are two small bathrooms at the bottom of the stairs – the sanitary ware and tiles were brought from Italy and there is a Greek key design on the glass doors and tiles. One bathroom has a shower, WC and wash basin, the other bathroom has a bidet, WC and wash basin.
The toilets, wash-basins, sink, shower, bidet, washing-mashing and dish-washer all run on an eco-Saniflow-system before the waste goes into the sea.
The Mission Hall has a sturdy wooden side door with a decking entrance. The sea wall is only a few metres away from the front of the house. A new decking area has been added at the back of the house – it catches the morning sun - and there are 4 wooden folding chairs, a table and sun beds.

Charming Cottage in a quaint seaside village
Although we only stayed a couple of days, we were so glad we experienced this part of Scotland. It was beautiful countryside and a quaint village. The owner, Gisela and her dog were great host. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
A charming seaside home with all modern conveniences yet away from it all!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mission Hall at the Crovie. It is a place that is rich with history and charm with breathtaking landscapes. The Crovie is quite remote with no shops or restaurants but always close to a number of seaside towns that offer all that could be needed. Gisela is a lovely host who has obviously put a lot of thought and effort into the Mission Hall. Our two night stay was the perfect mid-point to a busy vacation and a lovely way to slow down and experience another side of Scotland.
Loved the property and its history. Nice location for being on the ocean.
The place was great, a lot of history and a fantastic view. For anyone wanting to hike or walk along a beach/ocean, would be the perfect place to stay.
Thank you for appreciating my house and it's location. I'm really sorry it was not right for you due to your health.
Delightful, Magical, Beautiful
I would recommend HIGHLY this beautiful cottage on the sea to anyone who delights in nature, cozy fireplace nights, and a fantastic and lovely host! We wish we had stayed longer!!!
A lovely spot!
Overall we enjoyed staying here, the location is great for a real get away by the sea and the place itself is cosy, interesting and comfortable. Gisela was also helpful allowing us to arrive a little early and to leave later on the Sunday as there was no one else arriving and that was appreciated as was the bottle of wine on arrival. No fire laid, but there is a man a few doors down you can by logs/peat from so you don't need to bring your own.
Downside was that the wifi was very poor - you have to piggy back on the owner's router with a booster which cut out regularly so download any music/movies before you go!
NB. It was ideal for a couple but as the rooms are open to the main floor downstairs there would be little privacy for 2 couples or those with kids!
Thank you for appreciating the location, my house and my efforts. The open space has been designed by a famous Italian architect to let the natural light in. I'm sorry about the internet connection, I'm struggling sometimes myself with slow internet, but we are not in a city, here are other priorities as also many guests mentioned.
Individuelles, sehr gemütiches Ferienhaus in spezieller Lage
Das Ferienhaus ist sehr gut eingerichtet und bietet guten Komfort. Die Lage ist sehr speziell und hat den Vorteil von Abgeschiedenheit und Natur pur.
Wir vergeben deshalb 4* da für uns persönlich die Anreise mit Schubkarren, Hund und "Kegel" über ca. 500 m doch sehr aufwendig war. Der nächste "richtige" Supermarkt ist ca. 20 Fahrminuten entfernt.
Wen das nicht stört, der ist hier bestens aufgehoben.
Wir bedanken uns bei der Vermieterin.
