The Old Fishing Station
Ranked #1 of 2 St Cyrus B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Everything about The Old Fishing Station is faultless. Anyone visiting this part of Scotland should include this B&B in their itinerary. The breakfasts were plentiful and excellent. Alison was a wonderful hostess.

Absolutely a fantastic B&B. It's a little bit hard to find, but definately worth the steep road down! Look for a little sign beside the road south of St Cyrus. Through a few fields on a small steep road you end up on a lovely beach where this B&B is. Only a mile from the beach, you can hear the sea if you open the bedroom window.
The room was wonderfull. Very spacious, luxurious and very clean. The bathroom is specious aswell, and the shower has good power behind it and is nice 'n warm. The beds are fluffy and tidy. In short: This B&B has it all.
Very good freshly cooked breakfast with a wide variaty of cereal, fruits, toast and ofcourse a full scottish.
A great place for those who want to relax and enjoy being close to the beach. A jewel!

Had a lovely stay, relaxed setup but beautifully presented, clean and modern B&B with a great breakfast. Stunning walks on the beach are a must as the location is exceptional.

My partner and I were delighted to discover that the Old Fishing Station at St Cyrus has reopened - under new ownership - as a B&B. When I visited several years ago, the place was in need of this much needed upgrade. So, we were so happy to discover that our spotlessly clean room & bathroom had been fully refurbished, with contemporary comforts - including an I Pod dock, complimentary toiletries and fair trade drinks. We enjoyed a cooked breakfast with nice touches like good quality ingredients and mini jars of jam - not wasteful plastic sachets. Also, our room enjoyed private access, views of the nature reserve, sand dunes and the sea beyond. This brings me to the highlight. St Cyrus beach is like a wonderful secret. You could easily pass through the village without knowing that below the cliffs there are breathtakingly vast stretches of sand, overlooking the dramatic north sea. So, with all of this elemental perfection on ones doorstep, the positive change to the The Old Fishing Station itself is just a truly welcome bonus! We'll be back!
