                                                              Absolutely Beautiful Home for your Holidays.

                                                              Barron M.

                                                              After a long drive the property was easy to locate. All instructions were accurate and detailed. The house is gorgeous and the decor and furnishings is all in tradition of the age of the property with all the modern requirements of todays needs. There is nothing that you will want or need as it is all there.

                                                              The grounds are superb and spacious like the house and Izzy and Luka our Alaskan Malamute dogs were in their element and could roam free as it is all fenced and secured. There was 8 of us as well as the dogs and there was ample room for more and the kitchen table was an excellent family area. Really close to a 7/11 shop and supermarkets a short drive away. Lovely scenery and walks especially Pitulie castle which is a short walk away. fraserburgh Harbour is especially nice as well. Cannot find anything to fault our stay other than a request from our teenagers that had to leave xboxes at home that a DVD player would have been nice but that is all!

                                                              Thank you Laura for making our stay in Scotland memorable, you were only an email/call away if anything was required and that was reassuring. We hope to see you again soon.

                                                              What a lovely review. Thank you so much. We are really pleased when our guests are so happy. We think Pittendrum House is a very special place and we are delighted when our guests appreciate it as much as we do. It sounds like your dogs enjoyed it too!

                                                              Your suggestion of a DVD player is a good one. Technology continues apace but if you don't bring it with you then I can see a DVD player would still be useful so we will add that in.

                                                              Once again thank you Barron for your review the whole team are chuffed to bits and we hope you can come back to visit us!

                                                              Excellent stay

                                                              We had a fantastic stay over new year in Pittendrum house.

                                                              The house was clean, spacious and secluded. The price was very fair and we would definitely return.

                                                              Thanks again,

                                                              Pittendrum is situated just outside the small fishing village of Sandhaven with its historic harbour. Seals, whales and dolphins as well as rare sea birds can commonly be seen. Sandhaven in turn is just outside the small fishing port Fraserburgh. Attractions withing Fraserburgh include a long sandy beach which has hosted the Scottish surfing championships and the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses which includes Scotland's very first lighthouse which was created in an old castle. It is rumoured that Pittendrum House was built on the remains of a medieval castle and Pittendrum House is built in the style of an old tower house but with a Georgian twist. Nearby are the ruins of several castles including Pitsligo Castle and even lived in castles like the Castle of Philorth. Fraserburgh harbour is still bustling with many boats amd furher along there is a Victorian beach esplanade.
