Claudia purchased this house in 2010

Pennan is one of the prettiest coastal villages in Scotland.It is situated on the Banffshire coast which is a real 'hidden gem' .The whole coastline is dotted with lovely villages in spectacular settings,there are interesting historical towns such as Banff and Portsoy.The birdwatching and wildlife are world famous.Being based in Pennan means you can easily drive to wonderful beaches,visit ancient castles and explore the wonderful history and culture of rural Aberdeenshire.

Pennan is quaint,quiet and peaceful.The 30 or so houses all line the single street and everyone knows each other.When you come out of the front door you are right on the harbourside and next to the pebbled beach.

You can sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the fantastic sunsets.When it`s cold outside you can curl up in front of the fire and listen to the waves.

Great stay at the Harbour House!

  • 5 of 5
We all LOVED our stay at the Harbour House! The accommodations were comfortable, the kitchen was pretty well supplied with dishes and basics, and the location was great! I our whirlwind tour of Scotland (covering both coasts), this was out favorite place to stay. Also, wifi was good and dependable with all our myriad of devices--Claudia was right in that there is no cell signal in Pennan, but the wifi worked great. very quaint and beautiful location, but with modern amenities. We would love to go back!

The Harbour House in Pennan! What can I say! One of the most relaxing, beautiful getaways we have ever had!! Absolutely gorgeous! Deserves every one of the 5 stars that it is rated! Would highly recommend it. Very cozy with the log burning fires and beautifully cozy decor! The kids just loved it as did we! Very relaxing time had by all. Will definatly be coming back some day but next time will be staying for longer than just the 3 nights!!! Just wasn't long enough.

Stay there!

My wife and I spent a few days at Pennan Harbour House on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. It is a self contained cottage in the small coastal village of Pennan, as close to the water as you can get. The cottage seems to have been refurbished (to a high standard) and has the feel of a fisherman's cottage. I spent hours mucking about with the two pot belly fires, which added to the charm. (There is other heating also.) When the ocean is rough it is awesome. Running along the front of the village is a narrow road. When we first got there the tide was in and the waves big. As soon as I got out of the car I was drenched by a wave. It was awesome. As such, Pennan Harbour House provides a genuine rugged coastal experience but from a situation of great comfort. Other positives about the cottage include the heated flooring in the bathrooms, the many bedrooms, the free sample whisky, the variety of heating, the free wifi, the great hosts, the great nearby pub, and the friendly feel of the village.

I only have two words of 'caution'. Pennan is at the bottom of a steep hill down a narrow winding road. It is certainly driveable and I had no problems at all, but if you are not used to driving a manual transmission car it can take some getting used to and you need to take care with some of the blind corners in the road. You just need to drive slowly. Pennan Harbour House may also not be suitable for people with mobility problems as the bedrooms and bathrooms (yes there is more than one!) are upstairs.

Although I live on the other side of the world I absolutely must stay there again.

Wonderful house to feel at home and experience Scotlands coastline

  • 5 of 5
What would you expect arriving at Pennan's Harbour House on an evening in September? A warming wood stove, a caringly prepared gift-basket with local products, a perfectly cleaned house with many comfortable details - and all demonstrated by the very friendly and helpful owner (and in comprehensible documents to check in case of later upcoming questions) waited for us. The description and pictures we had before from the internet gave us a very good and accurate idea of what Harbour House is - but the sound of the rolling waves and the crying sea gulls, the smell from the sea, the magnificent spectacle of the tides add to that place what makes it incomparable. Harbour House is a good place to relax, read books or to do other activities enjoying that cosy and well equiped place. As the kitchen is very well equiped, we enjoyed cooking and eating in the nice kitchen. Internet (free wlan) is working perfectly, an important thing staying there with teenagers! Short walks in the tiny village give as well a good holyday-feeling. The Harbour House is a good starting point for different trips to the Aberdeen area, we specially appreciated the nearby bird watching places, as Troup Head or Loch of Strathbeg.Many ideas for excursions can be found in the books and flyers available.
