A luxuriously appointed, fully renovated fisherman's cottage a stone's throw from the lovely beach in Cullen Bay. Comfortably sleeps seven and is ideal for couples and families of all ages. The cottage is perfectly suitable for visitors who may not be so mobile. Aired and heated all year round, our cottage is exactly as we would wish any property to be that we ourselves would rent. We use the cottage ourselves when we come up to surf and you can expect every feature and luxury that we have in our main house in Edinburgh. A romantic getaway or a quiet holiday with little toddlers or an action packed adventure for older kids, our cottage is the perfect base to explore all that Cullen and the Moray Firth have to offer.

About Douglas Thomson
Our own family cottage that we rent out now that our surfing teenager has other interests. Been coming to this area for more years than we care to remember, so know all the locals and the way life is in this part of the world.
Douglas Thomson purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Douglas Thomson chose Cullen
Ten years ago. Needed a base for surfing on the Maray coast - nowhere better. Fantastic relaxing part of the country, but only a short drive to Aberdeen or Inverness for the big city feel. The weather always seems to be kind and the beaches are amongst the best in Europe - handy when the cottage is only 100m to our beach.
What makes this Cottage unique
Luxury and especially important, effective central heating and wood burning stoves! Aired and heated throughout the year, so none of that damp feel of so many cottages. Kitted out to the highest standard, you can even do your own cordon bleu cooking in our fabulous kitchen and then sit down round the huge dining table and talk about the next day's plans. Or relax in the huge bath upstairs or have a game of Scrabble in front of the wood burning stoves. On that odd occasion of poor weather, just stay in and be nice and warm. Unlimited superfast fibe optic broadband included.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
Fantastic property in a well located area
Fantastic property. Freezer did not keep items frozen. Other than that excellent accommodation.
We all loved Cullen. It is picturesque, fairly quiet, has a lovely beach and people are friendly.
The property was tastefully modernised with a very well stocked kitchen. It also had a delightful little sun trap at the back with a small table and chairs. The little blue night lights up the stairs were very pretty and useful. The welcome hamper was a nice touch. Altogether a nice property to stay in.
Really enjoyed our stay in Cullen the beautiful cottage had everything we needed to feel at home the photos don't do it justice made lots of happy memories and family calling in to see us as my partners mum and grandparents were born and raised in Cullen and he spent his child hood holidays here with his sister who also came with us we will definitely be back to stay in this cottage home away from home Cullen has always had a special place in our hearts.
Great place would highly recommend to anyone

A lovely and deceptively large cottage that is very well equipped. My family and I would be more than happy to stay here again. Highly recommended...don't tell anyone please!
A 30 second walk to the wonderful sandy beaches of Cullen on the Moray Firth with wonderful clear water for swimming (with or without a wetsuit!). wonderful secluded beaches all the way along the coast between Aberdeen and Inverness. Shallow sandy areas around Cullen harbour where little kids can muck around without coming to any harm.
One hour drive to both Aberdeen and Inverness airports. Both are serviced by a full range of budget and scheduled airlines. A wide range of car hire agencies operate from both airports. Regular train services from Aberdeen and Inverness call at Keith, 15 minutes from the property. Regular bus services pass within 100m of the property, travelling through north east Scotland.
5 minutes walk to centre of Cullen village with all amenities. 50 miles to both Aberdeen and Inverness for shopping and theatre visits. For rainy days, Macduff has a wonderful aquarium only 10 miles along the coast whilst Elgin 20 miles in the opposite direction has a wonderful old fashioned cinema showing the latest movies.
Bank, post office, supermarket , bars and restaurants in Cullen itself. Further along the coast, Buckie has wider choice and further along Elgin has much more. Every activity imaginable is available in the local area - you'll be spoilt for choice.
