About Selma & Rob Nicol
The Owners of this special property are Selma and Rob Nicol. We are both Canadian, although Rob grew up in Buckie which is a short distance from Cullen. We met in Canada in 1991 and eventually married in Scotland in 1998 at Eilean Donan Castle (very romantic!) and moved to a lovely little farmhouse just outside of Buckie on the Moray Coast. I nursed at the local hospital and Rob had an upholstery business. In 2005 family obligations necessitated a return to Canada but we continued to regularly return to Scotland to visit family with the intention of some day moving back. After relocating to the area in 2012 we purchased Camrose in the autumn of 2013 and spent several months renovating it to it's current high standard. We are very pleased with the result and think our guests will agree it is a lovely comfortable home away from home.
Selma & Rob Nicol purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Selma & Rob Nicol chose Cullen
We had a very successful first year with our other Cullen property, Hill Crest Holiday Cottage, which is also listed on Owner's Direct. We love Cullen and so do our guests so when an opportunity to purchase a second property came our way we couldn't resist. Camrose is a unique property with something different to offer from Hill Crest but in the same delightful setting.
What makes this Cottage unique
The location of Camrose within Cullen is ideal. Restaurants and shops are only footsteps away and the surrounding countryside only a few minutes more

Immaculate, ideally situated, very homely
Very much enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, spacious cottage. Nicely decorated with lots of little touches making it so homely. Loved the sunny kitchen with all essentials in the cupboards....even cling film & foil. Plenty of towels, including beach towels. Didn't have to rush out to buy extra toilet rolls or dishwasher tabs & washing powder as all was provided. Lovely welcome from Selma, who arrived in advance and had the heating on! Thank you.
Thank you so much for the review of your recent stay at Camrose. We are always pleased to hear from another satisfied guest and look forward to your next visit to this most beautiful area of Scotland.

Home Away From Home!
Camrose Cottage is everything you'd hope for in a "home away from home." The house... the garden... the warm hospitality... all were just superb!
We were in the area doing ancestry research in Fordyce, Rathven, Buckie, Deskford, and Cullen... and the Camrose Cottage was a perfect home base. We were out in various communities during each day, so the wonderfully appointed kitchen was appreciated for both breakfasts and dinners.
The living room was very comfy for watching TV and movies... and the sunroom gave a lovely view to the west. We knew each day that after our excursions around the area were finished we would have a comfortable place for rest and relaxation.
When we revisit the area in the future, Camrose Cottage is at the top of our list!
Thank you so much for your review of your recent stay at Camrose. We are pleased you enjoyed the cottage and look forward to your next visit to further your search for your Scottish roots.

Could not be faulted.
Beautiful, well equipped house. Everything was provided. ...even a welcome basket of “goodies” in the kitchen and toiletries in the bathroom. The house was so tastefully decorated with a fully equipped modern kitchen.
We are delighted that you felt Camrose was beautiful (we rather think so too) and met all of your needs for a comfortable and pleasant holiday. We hope to see you again some time.

My husband and I and our two daughters stayed at at Camrose for a week. Selma and Rob have created a lovely get-away place. All the little touches that make house a home they have included. The home is beautifully decorated, completely equipped with everything guests may need with lots of thoughtful touches like throw blankets for the living room, sand toys by the front door for kids and well appointed and comfortable bedrooms. Even the outdoor space is lovely and welcoming. The home has a great location, being a very short walk in to the town square with several restaurants, shops and ice cream shop. The house is also just a short walk to the sea. We would certainly stay here again when in Cullen.
We are very grateful to all of the guests that take the time to review their stay at either of our cottages. Camrose is a gem of house and we feel lucky to have it and be able to share it with visitors to this beautiful area. We hope to see you again for another visit in the future.

An exceptional holiday home
Camrose Cottage was a superb holiday rental. All the furnishings and appointments were first rate from the kitchen supplies to the quality linens. The owners went above and beyond to welcome us with a welcome basket of treats and fresh flowers. The house is spacious and comfortable and very clean. We had a great time there and highly recommend it.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to review your recent stay at Camrose. Camrose is a very comfortable home away from home and we take pride in presenting it to our guests in the best possible way. We enjoyed having you stay and hope to see you again for another visit in the future.
