Interaction with guests
We normally greet guests on arrival. We live in the steading behind the cottage, so are on hand should guests require assistance. However, as we have a different driveway and come and go from the other side, this doesn't impose on the privacy of the guests staying in the cottage.

Just stayed for a week at the cottage to celebrate my mum turning 65. Three adults and 1 toddler and it was perfect. The location is ideal, so many places to visit and the cottage itself is gorgeous. Would definitely recommend.

About the neighbourhood
The area is well known for it's beauty and friendly locals. The coast and beaches in particular are not spoilt by tourism. You will often find you have the beach to yourselves even through peak season. Everywhere you drive are plenty of option for walking through forests and along coastal paths.

If you're interested in history you will enjoy the vast quantity of castles to visit. The area is also very well known for it's whisky distilleries, most of which offer a guided tour and tasting.

If sport is more your thing, there are many golf courses to choose from, plenty of river fishing and surfing at Banff and Sandend.

If you love fish, you'll be in the right place. Fresh fish and local fish suppers!
Getting around
As i said previously, a car and a sat nav are your best bet to get around. The roads are excellent and everywhere you drive is beautiful.

How to get there
A car is a necessity in this area. If flying in from elsewhere, the nearest airport is Aberdeen (45 miles) and there is also Inverness airport(75). Although this is a few miles further it is an easy direct route along just a few roads. Both airports offer car hire.
The cottage itself, although considered quite rural is actually on a good road, the A97. It makes an easy base for exploring the area. The coast and lovely beaches are a short drive away. Just 4 miles to Whitehills and 5 miles to Banff. Provisions are available in nearby Aberchirder (3 miles)
