Crovie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
3 bedroom cottage in the picturesque Banffshire village of Crovie. Crovie (pronounced 'Crivvie') is located on the Moray Firth in Gamrie Bay, about 10 miles east of Banff and Macduff. It is a unique village with around 60 houses built at the bottom of a cliff, direclty adjacent to the sea. This 18th century fishing village has outstanding views and our converted cottage provides modern, comfortable facilities (including Wi-Fi broadband) in this atmospheric location and a garden for BBQ and stunning views.

Ideal for get away holidays; carefree family holidays to explore the outdoors or as a base to explore the area.

4 adults, 1 baby, and 2 dogs travelled to No. 40 Crovie from the 22nd to the 25th of September, we all had a fantastic relaxing time in this lovely cottage. We would definately recommend this cottage, the private garden is absolutely brilliant.

Management response:

Glad you had a good time. You have definitely prompted me to do some decluttering to get rid of/hide my stuff. Hopefully looking forward to seeing you again in the future. Jean
