Overview

About the property

Cosy, Comfortable and Spacious 3 bedroom cottage. Fully refurbished.

Our 120 year old traditional fisherman's cottage has been fully modernised and tastefully decorated to provide a home-from-home in the peaceful and picturesque village of Findochty on the Moray Firth coast. Metres from the harbour/marina, with sandy beaches and golf course nearby.

This spacious, fully modernised property is on two floors. Downstairs there is a large lounge, with wood burning stove - (logs provided). Dining room, as well as kitchen, shower room and utility room also downstairs. The three bedrooms, awash with light from the large windows, are upstairs. The property is centrally heated (gas) and fully equipped. There is a small, private terrace outside with table and chairs.

Findochty is a peaceful haven where you can relax or use a base to visit the many attractions that North East Scotland and the Highlands have to offer - golf; unspoilt sandy beaches and majestic cliffs; highland games; whisky trail; castles; speyside way; mountains; etc

Local Area: Findochty is centrally situated between the rolling farmlands and low hills of Aberdeenshire to the East; Royal Deeside in the South; the high mountains of the Cairngorms in the South-West; and Inverness, the capital of the Highlands in the West. These are all within a sixty mile (100 km) radius. the Moray Coast enjoys long hours of daylight in the summer, with spectacular sunsets.

What to See and Do: The Moray Firth coast is a nature lovers paradise. The coastline varies from rugged cliffs to sandy beaches, teeming with wildlife - dolphins, seals, seabirds, etc. For the sports enthusiast, there are watersports, golf, fishing, hillwalking, etc. There are Highland Games throughout the summer months; Portsoy boat festival in July; Vintage car rallies, etc. etc. See our webpage for lots of ideas of things to see and do.

Good base in Findochty

  • 4 of 5

Excellent cottage with all mod cons. A great welcome pack provided including a bottle of wine! All that is lacking is a sea view.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review our ‘Coastal Cottage’ in Findochty. We have tried hard to make it as comfortable and well equipped as possible - with our prospective guests in mind. We also receive many comments on how much the ‘welcome pack’ is appreciated, especially after a long journey. Sorry, about the lack of sea view - we do feel that other aspects of the cottage compensate for this :-)

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped. Spotlessly clean and spacious. So near the harbour. There was a welcome pack with:

bread, butter, ham, tomatoes, milk, wine, tea and coffee. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought into what makes a great experience for their guests. The beds were very comfortable. The log burner was a lovely experience for us. We had a fabulous holiday and would stay here again if we revisit the area.

Moderne, komplett ausgestattete FeWo

  • 5 of 5

Ruhige Lage am kleinen Hafen. Die Räume sind sehr schön hergerichtet. Alles sauber und ordentlich. Super Ausstattung. Inkl. Piano im Wohnzimmer für die Kulturliebhaber (die Frau spielt und der Herr genießt den Whisky).

Sehr nette und hilfsbereite Vermieter. Der Kühlschrank war sogar mit den wichtigsten Sachen frisch befüllt (Milch, Butter, Brötchen und Wein).

Parken vor der Tür.

Es war ein perfekter Urlaub.

Ein schönes Haus inmitten des Ortes Findochty. Direkt am Hafen. Gute Parkmöglichkeiten in der Nähe. Großzügige Räume schön und praktisch eingerichtet. Alles vorhanden, sowie bei Anreise ein gefüllter Kühlschrank mit Frischartikeln für die ersten Tage.
