About Kate Leith

I am from nearby Aberdeen, where I live and work full time. I enjoy travelling and I have visited some wonderful places in the world and appreciate good hospitality. I hope that guests who come to The Wee House will enjoy a fantastic holiday in this little part of the world.

Kate Leith purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Kate Leith chose Pennan

I have been visiting Pennan for a number of years as my parents own a holiday home here too. I bought The Wee House in 2014 and it has been lovingly restored into a beautiful seaside home - just the right size for two people! My boyfriend travels extensively for his job so its wonderful to have a getaway just an hour away when he is in Scotland.

Perfect Seaside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lovely "wee" house provided everything we needed for a few quiet and relaxing days. There is plenty of room because Kate has thought of everything and organized the whole house so well. Decor is lovely, with peaceful colours and cozy fabrics. Bed is extra comfy. So atmospheric to be warm and cozy in the window seat and watch the waves crash over the sea wall. Thank you Kate for an unforgettable end to our driving holiday in Northern Scotland. The Wheatleys -North Carolina USA

A really special little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Even though it was a glorious weekend we still lit the stove downstairs just to enjoy the sight, sound and smell of the burning wood. We plan to return in the winter as this cottage is a great little place to hideaway for a few days.

It is really well presented and equipped with everything you need for a trip to the Highlands. We shall return soon.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We first visited Pennan a few years ago whilst staying a mile or so away, each time we came back we would insist on returning and staying in the village itself. And now, having done so, we are not sure we could return and NOT stay in Kate’s wonderful cottage.

Kate met us on arrival and even had the fire going.

This cottage is a real gem. We slept with the window open listening to the waves. We popped the bench by the edge of the path during dusk, with blankets, wine and our books. We bought seafood in Banff and cooked risotto in the evening, writing and listening to music in the loft. We made a picnic and enjoyed the warm sun in stunning CullyKhan Bay. We dined in The Pennan Inn, twice.

Thank you Kate, your attention to detail in the cottage made the stay so very special.

We are already planning our return!
