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

Sports & Adventure Activities
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.

We had a lovely long weekend and would thoroughly recommend a visit.
This was our second visit to Camrose Cottage and again it did not disappoint. The cottage is beautifully appointed being a short stroll to the Main Street (more importantly the ice cream shop) and a pleasant short walk to the sandy beaches and harbour.
The facilities within the cottage are second to none, from a lovely welcome pack, fluffy towels, comfortable bedding, barbecue utensils to even dog towels and blankets. The garden is fully enclosed and a complete sun trap which was lovely.
I cannot recommend it enough and we will be returning soon!
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your return visit to Camrose. We hope to continue sharing this special house with our guests for a long time to come. Hope to see you for a third visit!
