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.

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.

Wir haben als Familie (2 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder) eine sehr, sehr schöne Woche in Findochty verbracht. Das lag nicht zuletzt an diesem wunderschönen, überaus geschmackvoll und stilvoll eingerichteten Feriendomicil. Ein geräumiges Wohnzimmer, ein separates Eßzimmer, eine große und gut ausgestattete Küche, drei geräumige Schlafzimmer, ... . Außerdem der Kamin im Wohnzimmer, für den im an das Haus angrenzenden Schuppen mehr als genug Nachschub an Heizmaterial gelagert war, so dass wir sehr gemütliche Abende im Wohnzimmer vor dem brennenden Kaminofen verbringen konnten.

Zudem ist die Umgebung sehr schön. Es ist möglich, direkt vom Haus aus lange Wanderungen an der Nordsee-Küste zu machen, wo wir auf sehr schöne und nahezu menschenleere Strände oder malerische Klippen mit zahllosen Möven getroffen sind. Auch die weitere Umgebung hat viele wunderschöne und auch geschichtsträchtige Ausflugsziele zu bieten (z.B. Culloden Moor).

Wer Schottland liebt, hat mit diesem Ferienhaus einen wunderschönen Ausgangspunkt, um diese Region Schottlands zu erkunden.

Absolut empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine wunderschöne Woche in dem liebevoll eingerichteten und perfekt ausgestatteten Cottage in dem malerischen Fischerort Findochty. Die Gastgeber empfingen uns mit viel Wärme und Freundlichkeit, Lebensmitteln und Getränken für die erste Zeit und hilfreichen Hinweisen für den Aufenthalt. Wir erlebten eine auch im Herbst wunderschöne Gegend/Natur und sahen tolle und interessante Plätze (nicht nur auf dem Malt Whisky Trail).
