Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Gardenstown, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Quiet and peaceful location, away from day to day life, surrounded by the natural beauty of nature, and facing directly out over the Moray Firth, this fisherman's style cottage is ideal for a special or romantic break or just for a great family holiday. Stunning walks from the front door along the beach, cliffs, harbour or to neighbouring villages. Dolphin spotting can be done without getting up from the sofa.

Ideal location for touring this beautiful corner of Scotland whether it be the Castle trail; the Whisky trail, or day trips to the many small villages along this coast.

What a fantastic cottage and location. We didn't want to leave! We watched a pod of dolphins from the cottage window one morning and saw an Aurora Borealis in the evening! The cottage was warm, clean and comfortable with everything catered for! I've stayed with family before and brought my partner this time.

Brian was extremely helpful and reliable in terms of contact and support to answer queries before the stay itself including mentioning about parking, all at short notice. We were looking for a small but modernly furnished cottage in a peaceful, coastal location on the Banffshire coast within easy reach of a larger town (Banff for bigger food shops and forgotten...

The picture window gives a stunning view out to sea, something I never got tired of while we there. Local people are really friendly, particularly at the Spar shop, the only shop in the village! The road? in front of...

About the neighborhood
Gardenstown is the largest of the three villages situated along this unique part of the Moray Firth, with Crovie and Pennan being the other two villages, both of which are more remote with limited facilities, but are ideally for visiting - you can walk along the sea front to Crovie (30 - 40 minutes). Gardenstown was founded in 1720 as a fishing village and still boasts a lovely harbour, which is mainly now used by pleasure craft and for inshore fishing; as well as a harbour-front restaurant and a hotel with pub and food; all within a few minutes walk of the cottage.There is also a petrol station with Spar shop and post office attached - all in all your basic essentials can be catered for locally and this is a fascinating historic place to use as a retreat away from it all or as a base for... more
