Seafront Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Gardenstown, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Quiet and peaceful location, away from day to day life, surrounded by the natural beauty of nature, and facing directly out over the Moray Firth, this fisherman's style cottage is ideal for a special or romantic break or just for a great family holiday. Stunning walks from the front door along the beach, cliffs, harbour or to neighbouring villages. Dolphin spotting can be done without getting up from the sofa.

Ideal location for touring this beautiful corner of Scotland whether it be the Castle trail; the Whisky trail, or day trips to the many small villages along this coast.

This cottage is literally on the seafront, just 3 metres or so of pathway between the floor to ceiling front window and the sea wall. When the tide is in, you can see seals and dolphins swimming past your window. Comfortable and well appointed, this...More

About the neighbourhood
Gardenstown is the largest of the three villages situated along this unique part of the Moray Firth, with Crovie and Pennan being the other two villages, both of which are more remote with limited facilities, but are ideally for visiting - you can walk along the sea front to Crovie (30 - 40 minutes). Gardenstown was founded in 1720 as a fishing village and still boasts a lovely harbour, which is mainly now used by pleasure craft and for inshore fishing; as well as a harbour-front restaurant and a hotel with pub and food; all within a few minutes walk of the cottage.There is also a petrol station with Spar shop and post office attached - all in all your basic essentials can be catered for locally and this is a fascinating historic place to use as a retreat away from it all or as a base for... more
