Auld Shop Cottage is a charming cottage in the seaside town of Portsoy, It was formally a shop/family home which was built approximately 250 years ago. The auld shop was vacated and fell into a derelict state, until it was rebuilt in 1997. Today it still retains its auld charm. Portsoy is a seaside town with a stunning 17th Century harbour at its heart. The cottage is just a short walk from the harbour and benefits from a view of the sea from the lounge window. The town has lots of local amenities and is a great base from which to explore the rich landscape of both Aberdeenshire and Moray from Mountain to sea. The following facilities are available to make your stay a pleasant one. All linen, towels, gas and electricity are included.
