What a wonderful cottage. Everything you could ask for and the pillows were so comfy I have ordered some for home ! Brilliantly placed for the whisky trail and many castles. Would love to go again and see the northern lights through Bow Fiddle rock. Thank you .

About the neighborhood
Portknockie is a lovely peaceful fishing village and overlooks a natural harbour on the Moray Coast. Portknockie has a fantastic community spirit and has won 'Best village in bloom' many times in the past.
