Holiday Rental House
Each of our lodges has been crafted to create a comfortable and stylish home from home, tastefully decorated with a modern interior and comfortable living/dining areas with south facing aspects. The two generous bedrooms are complete with en-suite facilities which can be made up with either super king size or twin beds. Our kitchens are sleek and a delight to use with everything you need for a self catering break. We believe we’ve thought of everything, from a corkscrew to the kitchen sink! Every lodge has a south-facing deck creating an ideal haven for breakfast at sunrise or an evening dram as the sun sets. We are more than happy for you to bring your well-behaved pets to enjoy a holiday too. ...Each of our lodges has been crafted to create a comfortable and stylish home from home, tastefully decorated with a modern interior and comfortable living/dining areas with south facing aspects.

About the neighbourhood
Beautiful – breathtaking – unforgettable. A visitor attraction in its own right. An ideal spot for families, couples or friends the town has one of the region’s most notable visitor attractions, Dunnottar Castle. On the top of a craggy cliff-edge, the ruin is a firm Scottish landmark thanks to its dramatic setting. It’s own sandy seafront and picture perfect harbour. Along the seafront you will also find the Stonehaven Open Air Swimming Pool. So no matter what the weather you can experience the trueness of our crisp air in Winter and the gorgeously lit nights in Summer.
