Just home from a wonderful stay at Tigh na cala, Portknockie. The cottage is fantastic; comfy and cosy and plenty of space. We stayed as 4 adults, 1 child and a baby. The children were well catered for with a cot, highchair and stair gates. The cottage has every facility needed and the beds were so comfortable, I especially loved...

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. There are many coastal walks from the cottage along the rugged cliffs which lead to coves and beaches, and you may pass the local landmark of Bow Fiddle rock. You could also walk or cycle the old railway viaduct from the village to Cullen a couple of miles away. Or just sit at the top of the harbour and watch the activities of the harbour. The area has a variety of wildlife with colonies of seabirds, dolphins and seals.<BR>You do not have to venture far as Portknockie has a variety of shops, including a general food store, chemist, post office, hairdressers, fish and chip... more
