Following a long drive, arranged to meet Yvonne (owner) at the property. Yvonne showed us around and answered all our questions. The property is impeccably furnished and as for location all I can say is Wow.

The views are amazing and the whole place seems to be in a time warp with it's relaxed pace of live. Coming from a big city this was a most refreshing change.

Yvonne had gone to great lengths to make our stay was special and the unveiling of the cake she had left for us was particularly pleasing :-).

The weather for our stay was akin to anywhere on the Costa's. Who wouild think you would go to the east coast of Scotland and never see a cloud and come home with a tan. This all added to the occasion.

I would say to any prospective viewers of this property "Book It". From the warm greeting from Yvonne to handing the keys back, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Lovely cottage in a quiet location, with beautiful views of the harbour.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed saying at Harbour View. The cottage is tastefully decorated and very well equipped. Yvonne met us at the property and showed us around. The welcome hamper and information on local attractions were much appreciated. Stonehaven and the surrounding area offered a range of attractions and walks.

Perfect position, great property, freedom for the kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in late April. Yvonne met us at the property and made sure we were settled. 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.

Stonehaven is a lovely seaside town perfectly situated either for those wishing to holiday in the one place or wishing to travel further afield and explore the surrounding areas.

Within walking distance we have a wealth of hotels, inns, restaurants and coffee shops as well as a vast array of takeaways. The Marine Hotel, The Ship Inn and The Tolbooth Restaurant are practically on the doorstep and come highly recommended. Within a few minutes walk both The Cool Gourmet and The Villa Coffee Shop will tempt your tastebuds with a range of mouthwatering cakes, scones and traybakes.

For the walkers we are situated a 20-25 min walk away from the historic ruins of Dunnottar Castle, a great tourist attraction, or a 5min walk will take you to Dunnottar Woods, a great place to explore and while away an hour or two.

Stonehaven is very proud of it's Olympic-sized outdoor swimming pool - open during the summer months and a great tourist attraction - kids and adults alike!
