“Cosy Cottage”
Reviewed July 28, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at the cottage last week and had a lovely time. The harbour, excellent chip shop, local spar shop all less than 5 mins away. Lovely views to be had from the cliffs and some beautiful places to visit. The cottage was well appointed and suited our extended family. Lovely fresh decor in all of the rooms and such comfortable beds. We will certainly return and I would highly recommend.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Tigh na Cala is in a beautiful location within a short walking distance of the harbour in Portknockie. The accommodation is exceptional - better equipped than any we have ever stayed in before. Immaculate throughout the whole property, it made a great base to explore this part of Scotland, although you don't need to travel far to see wonderful things, such as dolphins and seals, osprey and seagulls. We stayed in the cottage with my parents and there was more than enough room for all of us to enjoy being together but also for privacy. The dog was in her element! The beaches locally are the best we have seen in years - and we would recommend the forest / beach walks at Rose Isle, a short drive down the coast towards Burghead.

“Absolutely fantastic cottage!!!”
Reviewed June 7, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was our fourth stay and each time the cottage has been spotlessly clean and welcoming. The surrounding area is just a treasure chest, we find something new each visit and the local fish and chip shop is a must! Best I have been to! Stuart and Sharon do a wonderful job with this cottage, which even the local people say is the best. The local people are very friendly and welcoming. I would not hesitate to recommend Tigh na Cala, to anyone.

“Absolutely wonderful accomodation”
Reviewed March 20, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed in this lovely house for a week with our three wee dachshunds. Every possible convenience is provided. The house is warm and spectacularly clean and well cared for. In fact it even smells beautiful. I can't recommend it highly enough. Portknockie has fabulous walks, the best fish and chip shop we have ever been to, a shop, hotel and pub. This lovely little fishing village is pristine without being twee and has a atmospheric harbour too. The location of the village is very handy for the many interesting and scenic places to visit on this coast. Wow, it's like the locals are keeping this area for themselves. We live in Edinburgh and nobody we know had ever visited Morayshire for holiday. Stay at Tigh an Cala, you won't regret it!

“Fabulous”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

What a fabulous holiday home. We have stayed in many holiday cottages and this has to be one of the best. Stuart and Sharon have certainly made this a home from home. Every small detail has been thought of. We had a fabulous week in this very comfortable house and look forward to a return visit.
Portknockie is a beautiful area to visit with lots to see in the surrounding area.
We would highly recommend a visit to this area and especially to Tigh Na Cala.

“Fantastic holiday cottage”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The cottage is so well equipped and totally spotless. The welcome pack, chocolates on the pillows and fresh flowers were a lovely touch. Beds were super comfy. Portknockie itself is lovely. Very picturesque and quiet. Great for a relaxing holiday. We will definitely return.

“Excellent !!!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This was our 2nd time at this cottage. Simply put it's an excellent place that's got a real homely feel and the owners have added some great touches. There is everything that you need and the Welcome Pack is brilliant. Cottage is real close to the scenic harbor and stunning views. My son and I were able to fish down at the harbor for Pollock which was great and you can do a bit of Crab lining too. Our dog loves running around the Bay's and small beaches in Portknockie and Cullen. Lossiemouth and Findhor beaches are great too for a visit. Everything you need is very close to Portknockie with Cullen and Buckie on either side.
Only thing I would have liked was a 2nd TV for our teenage son in one of the bedrooms. Having said that we did survive, LOL. Thanks to the McLean's.
