Fuchsia Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
In the grounds of Glenfarquhar Lodge, this former bakehouse has been tastefully converted into a unique two bedroomed character property. The property was converted in 2007 to a very high standard, and has been equipped to a very high level.

A perfect property for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle, but equally a good base for exploring North East Scotland, with its castles, whisky distilleries and lovely nearby coastline, to name but a few of its attractions.

Take a satnav, only the second time I have stayed in this area, but it can be confusing, I find the satnav essential. Lovely cottage set a little way from the main house, so actually quite private and quiet. Loads of parking, the lady warned...More
