“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well equipped little cottage ”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This cottage is only a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Portsoy in one direction and the same distance to the harbour in the other direction. The owner was very prompt at responding to any questions we had ahead of our visit, and left a little welcome pack of milk, bread, eggs etc which was a nice touch. The cottage was spotlessly clean and v nicely presented. The cottage had a good sized bedroom and bathroom, cozy lounge (with sofa bed) and well equipped kitchen. Was just right size for the pair of us - think might be small for four people though. V efficient heating system.

An ideal place for a couple to stay for a week and to explore this part of Scotland.

“Well equipped cottage in a lovely little village with all amenities”

person found this review helpful

It's hard to find any fault with this cottage. It was very clean, had everything we needed and was well positioned for the amenities of Portsoy and only a few minutes walk from the harbour. The village shop sells a great range of icecream and we enjoyed Aberdeen butteries every morning. Very enjoyable stay.

“Fantastic cottage located in a lovely village with lots of interesting 'nooks and crannies'”
Reviewed June 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The 'Auld Cottage' was spotlessly clean and included everything needed for a great stay. The owner has perfectly pitched the cottage to provide a warm cosy welcoming feel. We much appreciated all the little extras left too. The village itself was charming and had lots of interesting places to visit and it was also an ideal location for any traveller wishing to explore the north coastline between Inverness and Fraserburgh. Many places to visit and enjoy and an abundance and choice of golf courses to play.

“Good home base”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Good little house just a short walk to the sea and within a couple of hours of sights to the west. I can recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Portsoy.

Everything is tidy and there is even a fireplace. Even the bed is comfortable!

“Fantastic Cottage”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Another fantastic weekend in Portsoy for the Boat Festival and again in this wonderful cottage. The standard of the cottage is excellent and Judith makes it so welcoming with adding the little touches of the shopping starter kit and toiletries. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

“Very Comfortable in Portsoy”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage was one of several places we stayed on a tour of Scotland and was great.
Everything you need was there, very comfortable bed and sitting room and a well equipped kitchen.
The central heating was very effected - and was required for Australians staying in the not-quite-balmy weather we had in mid-June this year.
The wifi was excellent too.
Portsoy is a very quiet town, so be prepared to drive to explore the local area.
