“FANTASTIC HOLIDAY COTTAGE”
Reviewed 20 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I went to this stunning little cottage with my husband and our 12 year old daughter,we really could not have asked for a better holiday home,the welcome package on arrival was fantastic and very much enjoyed.
Right outside to the left of the cottage is a little beach where we spent many evenings with a bottle of wine watching for the dolphins,which we did see :),and to the right is another beach.
There was all you could ask for and more in this cottage,and we had a good few barbeques in the garden as we had fantastic weather,there are lots to do in the area and surrounding area's.
It is so good we are going to book a weeks surprise for my dads 60th birthday,and we will be returning ourself's next year.
We all loved this little cottage.

“Idyllic break in historic fishing village, accommodation perfect”
Reviewed 18 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Look left, from the front door to the end of the street, and you see the sea.

Look right, to the other end, and you see the sea.

Directly opposite is another short quiet street ... and beyond that, the sea.

Rugged coastline is just yards away from this cottage, and if that's your thing then you really could not find a better spot.

We came here for a week's holiday, and also to catch up with family (we have roots in Findochty and Buckie so we know the area pretty well). The cottage looked great online but somehow, it was even better when we stepped inside - homely, comfortable, clean and perfectly finished, plus a very thoughtful welcome pack from the owners. Everything was taken care of, and that meant we could relax and enjoy our break! We felt lucky to have found it .

Findochty itself is a historic fishing village with a harbour, winding streets, a small convenience shop, a pub and Strathlene golf course right next door. You can get straight onto the coastal path and I recommend the walk to Portknockie and then on to Cullen. We enjoyed it, and the views - including Bow Fiddle Rock - are ace.

Best attractions? Well, the rocks score very highly if you want to watch the sea and all its moods (like us), or you have a young boy who wants to clamber (like our 7-year-old). The Whale and Dolphin Centre in Spey Bay is worth a trip, and you shouldn't leave without trying some fresh fish - go to Eat Mair Fish by the harbour in Buckie, and the Codfather (yes, really) fish and chip van when it comes to Findochty.

We can't recommend this holiday cottage highly enough. Clare and Steve are very friendly and we think they've thought of everything. When we go back to that part of Scotland, we'd love to stay there again.

“Romantic weekend break”
Reviewed 6 December 2011 for a stay in October 2011

This little cottage is a beauty! It is cosy, comfy, quirky, intriguing and just delightful! We stayed here for the weekend and had a fabulous time. The area is fantastic for walking, exploring and the scenery is out of this world. I would highly recommend this haven of perfection for any budding holidaymakers out there. The hospitality is the best too :)

“The wonders of Autumn”
Reviewed 3 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We enjoyed a perfect Autumn break in the cottage this year. We spent the days exploring the stunning scenery and the evenings gathered around the log burner! The cottage is so warm and comfortable that the sound of the wind outside only added to the experience.
Our family enjoyed a day of fishing and were surprised at the amount of fish to be found so late in the season!
We loved our time inFindochty and have already booked a further break in the summer. I would highly recommend a visit!

“A Lovely Week on the Moray Coast”
Reviewed 29 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

The cottage and the service were both excellent. The cottage was well equipped, very comfortably and carefully restored so we enjoyed a lovely week. The location was beautiful and peaceful. The village is only a minutes away from amenities by car.
