This beautifully built modern property is directly opposite one of the best secluded sandy beaches in Findochty, and has stunning views of the Moray Firth. In the 1800's fishing was conducted from this natural inlet and this is also where the famous painting 'Home With The Tide' was painted by James Clarke Hook, which currently hangs in the Tate Gallery. The house provides the perfect place for relaxation and unwinding. Spend some time wandering through the historic fishing streets and walk along to the marina to watch it's creel and pleasure boats, then amble up to the cliff tops to take in the panoramic views or even a spot of dolphin watching! There are other beaches within easy walking distance and opportunities to be more active with cycling, golfing and sailing nearby.

We live in Aberdeenshire and have been holidaying in the area for many years as we have family living nearby. We fell in love with Findochty after spending many family holidays here. Our house is a real home from home for us and we love spending time here. We hope you will enjoy it and Findochty as much as we do.
Why Jacqui chose Findochty
We chose this property for its location as we all love to be beside the sea and you couldn't get much nearer than this! I can watch my kids playing on the beach from the house, they play there in the sun and in the snow! The view is great and I love that it is a very peaceful and calm location which is full of history. It's a great place to re-charge your batteries!

The property was perfect for the 5 of us and small dog. Great location with lovely views.
Everything we needed was supplied. Great location to explore all round the area. Would recommend it. We had a great week. Thank you!
The location of the cottage is absolutely perfect, just metres from a small sandy cove. The owner has placed the dining table at the front window and we enjoyed all of our meals looking out to sea...pure bliss. The cottage is modern, spacious and very well equipped with a superb heating and hot water system which was much appreciated. Really couldn't ask for anything more. The owner provided basics for our arrival and also dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll etc which again was much appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the local area and once again the cottage location is ideal for visiting many attractions on the Moray coast as well as being on the coastal path. Would definitely recommend this cottage and the owner who was very responsive and provided everything we needed.

We would like to thank Jacqueline for allowing us to stay at The Hythe.
The house was everything that was advertised. Hope to stay there again in the future. Thankyou😊
We’ll be back!
This is the third time we have stayed here. It is the perfect place for a peaceful, relaxing break. A lovely cottage equipped with everything you need. The sea view and sunsets from the window are stunning. What more could you ask for?
Fantastic property, very well equipped, extremely clean and tidy. Looks almost brand new. Views are stunning. Loved it.
Perfect stay at Findochty
We recently stayed at 1 The Hythe Findochty. A truly perfect location with the beach footsteps away and a two minute walk to the pretty harbour. Also very close to the picturesque Portknockie and Cullen. We didn't have to drive far to enjoy all the local tourist spots. 1 The Hythe was very well fitted out and met our every need. The only minor complaint is the mastic surrounding the bath is black and the water doesn't drain away quickly enough when showering, leaving you standing in two to three inches of water. However , we would definitely recommend staying here. x
Hi Jan, thank you for posting your review and pointing out a couple of issues in the bathroom which you were disappointed with. We aim to keep our standards high and apologise that you had to deal with this during your stay. We have now remedied both issues. We would love to welcome you back any time.
