“Peaceful Portsoy”
Reviewed February 16, 2016 for a stay in August 2015

Comfortable house in an old part of town, down by the 17th century harbour. As well as having family connections here, it made a great base for a peaceful holiday in this charming part of Scotland with walks and places of interest aplenty. The Moray coast is well known for decent weather so far northland so it proved.

“All you could wish for”
Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Absolutely delightful. This wonderful holiday house has everything one needs for a perfect holiday. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with all required for self-catering. The beds upstairs are comfortable as is the cosy living room.
Portsoy is ideally situated almost halfway between Inverness and Peterhead. For the whiskey tourist there are dozens of world renowned distilleries within 90 minutes drive of the village. For the walker or rambler the coast trail passes less than 100 meters from the house through the picturesque Portsoy harbour.
The real beauty of this holiday home is that, after a day of wandering around in the cold and wind, you can come back and relax in front of the gorgeous log fire in the front room.
Thank you Margaret and Ian for the wonderful welcome and for giving us a perfect base for a lovely holiday. We will certainly be booking in here again next time we come to Portsoy.

We stayed in this cottage for 2 weeks and would recommend it. it is very well equipped and the welcome tray on arrival was very well received. It is dog friendly even down to dog bowls being supplied. we are regular visitors to Portsoy and this cottage is one of the best we have stayed in and we will definitely be back.

The facility was just what we needed for our visit to Scotland.Roomy, modern and completely private in a quiet area of Portsoy yet so close to the beautiful harbour and sea.Easy to walk up to the main street. Ian, the host was great on arrival and we had no problem finding our feet in the surrounds.We will stay here again and highly recommend to anyone visiting a most beautiful part of Scotland.
