About the property

3 Bedroom (sleeps 5/6) cottage with harbour view

Our 120 year old traditional fisherman's cottage has been fully modernised and tastefully decorated to provide a home-from-home in the peaceful and picturesque village of Findochty on the Moray Firth coast. With view over the marina and only a few metres from a small beach, with golf course nearby. This spacious, fully modernised property is on two floors. Downstairs there is a lounge, single bedroom and dining room, as well as kitchen and bath/shower room. There are two further bedrooms upstairs. The property is centrally heated (gas) and fully equipped. There is a small, enclosed, private garden outside with views over the marina and harbour. Findochty is a peaceful haven where you can relax or use a base to visit the many attractions that North East Scotland and the Highlands have to offer - golf; unspoilt sandy beaches and majestic cliffs; highland games; whisky trail; castles; speyside way; mountains; etc.

Home from home in pleasant village

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well equipped from coffe-maker to first-aid kit, books, games an toys. It has very good and functional amenities and there is plenty of room for 5 adults. A homely and cosy atmosphere with picures, photographs and carefully choosen curtains and decoration are an additional plus. The furniture is of good quality and very comfortable. Parking is always available directly in front of the house. We loved the patio and whenever the not always predictable Scottish weather allowed sat there with a cup of coffee and watched fishing and sailing boats in the harbour. Findochty is certainly one of the most pleasant and amiable villages in the area. On arrival we were greeted by Ian who showed us around the house which was very much welcomed. We spent a very relaxing week in Findochty thanks to this lovely cottage.

lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

we had a lovely stay, the cottage is in a nice quiet position, and is well equipped cosy and comfortable, we so enjoyed breakfast in the garden overlooking the harbour, also a glass of wine watching the sun set, we would most certainly stay here again if holidaying in this area.

The Perfect Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The layout was perfection.facilities 1st class.Very clean and comfortable.We arrived too late to buy a meal but the welcome pack provided was enough to last us till next day.The only pub in the village{The Admirals Findochty} serve the most tasty satisfying meals.The view from the patio while having our breakfast was perfect.The people who live in the village and the holiday makers all speak to you when walking by.There is absolutely nothing to dislike about Finechty.Beautiful walks,lovely scenery.Everything is clean.The Sea is so clear and it so peaceful to just sit at the harbour and look at the sea.You can get the bus to Buckie or if there is 4 or more it is cheaper to get a taxi.Ace taxis in Buckie were very helpful.There is information in the cottage telling you all the places you can visit if this is your choice.DVD's Games etc provided for your entertainment.If our train had not been delayed we would have been met by Ishbel and Ian,but we did not meet them till the day we left.A lovely couple who kept in touch to see if we had arrived safely.I will most certainly be going back to the harbour cottage for another visit.Mind you i am 72 yrs old and i was born in the village but my daughter and her friend cant wait to go back.We were also very lucky,we got sunburnt.we had a mixture of different weather but it was warm all the time.I am hoping i will be able to download some photos but i am an amateur at this computer lark.LOL.On a finish i think Ishbel and Ian deserve There cottage to be 4 star.A very big THANKYOU to you both for making our holiday perfect.Eileen Adamson.

Wundervolles Haus

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Ferienhaus ist absolut traumhaft ! Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, alles vorhanden, was für das tägliche Leben notwendig ist, sehr gepflegt, man fühlt sich sehr willkommen und wie daheim im eigenen Haus, sehr nette Vermieter.

Durch die zentrale Lage kann Findochty zu Fuß erkundet werden und der Kontakt zu den Einwohnern kommt von ganz alleine, man gehört einfach dazu.

Es ist sehr ruhig gelegen, trotz Hafen und Straße und wir konnten uns kaum von der täglichen Aussicht auf den Hafen trennen, es gab immer etwas zu entdecken.

Es fiel uns sehr schwer, wieder heimzufahren - wir vermissen es sehr !

Hier haben wir nicht nur unsere Beine baumeln lassen, sondern auch unsere Seele.

Herzlichen Dank an Ishbel und Ian
