We were looking for a relaxing place to spend a few days exploring the Moray coast during our honeymoon in Scotland. The Durn House was exactly what we hoped to find. The location was amazing, the house itself was beautiful, and the owners were wonderful! They are very friendly and have a wealth of knowledge of the house and the local history. The breakfast was great, too! Portsoy is a relaxing town, and a good spot to explore the Moray coast and the surrounding area. We loved nearly everything - there were only two minor inconveniences: the shower at times got quite hot, and the toilet was a little tricky to operate. But those issues were minor and did not detract from the wonderful stay. We highly recommend the Durn House, and if travels take us back to Scotland, would love to stay again!
