Re-visiting after two much-enjoyed trips in 2000 & 2001--facilities enhanced. Scottish hosts very welcoming and informative, with background in land management, tennis-coaching!--and rapport with nature. Suggest upstairs room for view over dunes to sea. Outside-stair adds to sense of difference. Binoculars supplied for viewing Nature Reserve just over the fence! Excellent cooking, and home-baking, including gluten-free oatcakes, ditto biscuits, and... More

The Old Fishing station is everything a b&b should be. The en-suite rooms are compact but have everything one could ask for. The beach which is within the nature reserve is a 2 minute walk away. Elaine helped us make tee reservations at the beautiful Montrose golf course which is just 10 minutes away. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and... More

Stayed here with my brother as part of the C&C North trip. Lovely place, fantastic and welcoming owners. Very welcoming and friendly. Recommend the long walk up the stone steps to St Cyrus - not many beach walks compare. Couldn't recommend higher.

Was a little skeptical about what to experience at the B & B. Clean and well laid out environment. Friendly and helpful hosts. Brilliant environment and clean and scarcely populated beach within 5 minutes walk. Will definitely stay there again. Summary: Not a 5 star hotel, but a friendly "home" for a time out at the beach, away from the... More

We have been visiting St Cyrus for many years as our son and family live close by. The area is a stunning nature reserve with a huge beach and dunes, the river Esk and big skies. The bed and breakfast overlooks all this, a few minutes along the board walk and you are on the beach . The Fishing Station... More

Had a thoroughly enjoyable 2 night stay at the end of August with our young baby. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and well appointed with a selection of refreshments, hairdryer and information about the local area. Very tasty breakfast in lovely breakfast room - made even better when Alison offered to look after our little one to let us... More

Location, hospitality, food and facilities great. Beautiful beach walks. Great for relaxation and getting away from the stresses of life. Felt like a million miles away from home.

Stayed for two nights, wished it had been longer. Definitely a get away from it all place. Quiet, relaxing and right on the sand dunes, and one minute to beach front. Rooms were modern, well equipped with en suite and own front door. Have to come outside to go into kitchen for breakfast. Food best quality and cooked to perfection... More
