“Awesome Cottage, Wonderful Owners”
Reviewed 28 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Myself and 3 other family members stayed at Skerry Cottage in June'2011. Sheila Priest and family were just wonderful, made us feel like family coming to visit. The cottage is decorated with all the little extras, we hated to leave and hope to visit again. Best place ever to stay, very clean, lots of privacy. I would recommend to everyone to stay there if they can, best value, best location. Owners made themselves available to us during our entire stay. We left our hearts in Scotland............

“Once you step on the island you never want to leave”
Reviewed 23 May 2011 for a stay in October 2010

From the warmest of welcomes to the beauty of the seascape the time we spent on Buchan Ness Island was fantastic. You enter the cottage and immediately realise you have made the right choice. Clean, tidy well-furnished and nicely decorated. All rooms are designed to make you feel very much at home in terms of comfort. Functionally you are provided with everything in the kitchen which is large and has a family dining table.

The location is on the edge of a small village and the nearest town is about 4 miles away which has all basics like grocery shops and bakers etc. There is also a selection of restaurants worth checking out.

Wander by foot or drive the cost roads by car you will not be disappointed but may be breath taken by the stunning views and tranquillity of the coastal hamlets and villages.

Further away, but only 25 minutes or so by car is Aberdeen where you have everything a city can offer including theatre, shows, gigs and large modern promenade with fun fare, amusements, crazy golf and a campus of restaurants to suit all.

We visited twice in 2010. My son is 11 and he won't stop asking when we are going back. My daughter is 17 and she spent most of the week in August out on the rocks sketching and drawing the view was so fantastic.

You will not be disappointed - enjoy
