Gardenstown, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Gannet Cottage is a traditional fisherman's cottage with all mod-cons located in the Seatown area of Gardenstown, which is a conservation area, directly on the seafront in a stunning and quiet location of natural beauty. Fantastic sea views from inside the cottage. From your sofa watch the many birds on the seashore; try and spot the dolphins, or just watch the boats entering and leaving the harbour.

We loved this traditional little cottage. I totally chilled out sitting with the wood burning stove just feet from the sea. We'll be back.

This is a lovely cottage which has obviously undergone considerable modernisation from what would have been a pretty basic fisherman's home. It is spotless and well equipped. The views are amazing, especially the sunsets. We were fortunate to have lovely weather which allowed us to...More

About the neighbourhood
Gardenstown was founded in the 1700's and the harbour is used now by local fishermen and pleasure boats. The village has many quaint streets with the cottages on the seafront being 'gable on' so giving shelter from the sea conditions. There is a local 'spar' in the village as well as a local pub and a in season a tearoom.

This is an ideal location if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of normal life, being in a quiet area of natural beauty. It is also an ideal haven to each evening if you wish to tour the area whether that be the 'Whisky Trail', the 'Castle Trail' or simply to visit some of the other towns and coastal villages.

Coastal walks start right at the front door of the cottage...
