Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Auld Shop Cottage is a charming cottage in the seaside town of Portsoy, It was formally a shop/family home which was built approximately 250 years ago. The auld shop was vacated and fell into a derelict state, until it was rebuilt in 1997. Today it still retains its auld charm.

Portsoy is a seaside town with a stunning 17th Century harbour at its heart. The cottage is just a 3 minute walk from the harbour and benefits from a view of the sea from the lounge window. The town has lots of local amenities and is a great base from which to explore the rich landscape of both Aberdeenshire and Moray from Mountain to sea.

The following facilities are available to make your stay a pleasant one.

All linen, towels, gas and electricity are included. The Auld Shop Cottage offers free WiFi.

A washing machine, drying and ironing facilities are avail...

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.

Management response:

Thank you so much for your review. I would love to welcome you to stay again.

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...

Management response:

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I would be delighted to welcome you both again anytime.

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!

Management response:

Thank you for your review. I would be delighted to welcome you again.
