Built around a private gravelled courtyard within the lightly wooded grounds of a fine Grade B Listed Regency Buchan former Manse dating circa.1828 the former stables and coach house have been sympathetically converted to provide two spacious and tastefully appointed self catering holiday cottages.

Each cottage is double glazed, centrally heated, and complemented in the main sitting room with a glass fronted feature cast iron multi-fuel stove.

In the main bedroom you have the choice of two single beds or a 6ft wide super-king.

All accommodation is ground level.

Short notice weekend breaks available subject to availability, please contact us to request details.

Come and stay in this beautiful area of Scotland and be prepared to be enchanted by the rolling countryside, explore local deserted wave washed beaches and enjoy the hospitality of local towns and villages like Pennan, Crovie, Portsoy and Gardenstown.

Whilst spending time at Gamrie Lodge the area provides a multitude of activities including golf, riding, fishing, cycling and walking.

For those looking for less energetic experiences, why not explore the plentiful supply of dramatic ruins and historic buildings or seek out the many other idyllic places to slow down, rest, and take it easy with a book, sketch pad or easel.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Just got home after spending a week in "The Owl". The only reason we decided to visit Scotland was that my brother-in-law married a Scottish lass and we felt duty-bound to visit. To be honest, I wasn't initially keen on "wasting" my prized annual leave on somewhere so cold and barren.



It just goes to show what ignorance can do. My wife, two young children and I, have just had a magical time! We saw some beautiful countryside, met warm, wonderful people, ate huge helpings of delicious food, felt the history and drank the whisky! But the thing that topped it all off for me was the quality of the accommodation. Everything was catered for and we felt really at home immediately. Absolutely first class...so much so we actually feel as if we've cheated a bit for paying so little!



If you're wondering about a holiday in Scotland and want to get away from the touristy haggis-and-shortbread bits, come here. It's wonderful..."

MEMORABLE STAY IN THIS DELIGHTFUL RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
We booked one of the cottages for half term this Autumn. Easy distance from Aberdeen airport but felt that we were really tucked away from hectic life. The cottage was immaculate and spacious.

Whilst contemporary in its style, it still retains a cosy feel - the warmth from the fire in the living room when we set the logs was so welcoming after days walking in the countryside or by the sea.

We love good food and cooking and found that the kitchen was well laid out, well equipped and easy to use. We shopped in Banff - a lovely, friendly town with straightforward shops to keep you stocked throughout your stay.

The bedrooms were clean and well laid out - storage, even with all the winter clothing, was good. The main bedroom has a basin which was helpful given that there is only one bathroom - saved on any queuing to brush teeth!

Overall I would very happily recommend this lovely place - great for friends over Hogmanay I am sure but I am sure that it is also great in the summer.

The owners were around but not intrusive - helpful and obviously keen to make sure everything is there for you.

Enjoy your stay!!
