The fourth addition to our small ‘portfolio’ of luxury coastal cottages, we think this may just be our best. Set in the picturesque ‘get-away-from-it-all’ fishing village of Sandend, between the pretty harbour towns of Cullen and Portsoy, this cottage has stunning views over the wide sandy beach from the kitchen, lounge and two front bedrooms. The elevated garden terrace and summer house, again with stunning views, are ideal for outdoor entertaining and barbeques. Fantastic coastal walks right from your doorstep makes this an ideal cottage for dog owners or walkers and children will love the beach.

This part of the North East of Scotland also lends itself to day trips, exploring the Castle trail, partaking in a dram along the Whisky Trail or perhaps getting close to the dolphins and other wildlife along the Moray Firth. We are sure you...

Interaction with guests
Guests can pick up their keys whenever they arrive from a small key safe. I usually pop in to say hello at some stage during the visit, as I often walk my dogs on Sandend Beach, but I am always only a phone call away if guests want some local information.

About the neighbourhood
Sandend is a 17th century fishing village, one of the smallest and perhaps one of the most attractive along the Banffshire coast. It is known by the privileged few as a mecca for surfers and kayakers and occupies a beautiful location opposite a pretty beach, perfect for catching the waves or just building castles in the sand. At its east end is the newly re-opened Glenglassaugh Distillery, founded in 1875 but mothballed in 1986. Nearby are the remains of the Glassaugh Windmill, built in the early 1700s. Still standing are a stump surrounded by a lower base: which explains its local name of the cup and saucer.

Nearby Portsoy is a vibrant town, attractive with it’s twisting streets around the 17th century harbour. It has a number of pubs and restaurants as well as local shops and a small s...
