“Fantastic Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Very easy to book. Ian and Margaret responded straight away to my enquiry and the whole process was simple.

It is everything it says and more. Spacious rooms, very well equipped kitchen and a shower that is easy to use and works well. Spotlessly clean and comfortable beds.

Nice touch of a welcome tray of tea, coffee, shortbread and a pint of milk in the fridge.

Great to have the garden as well - table and chairs for sunny days.

A couple of minutes from the harbour and a short walk to the shops in the village.

Added bonus was that our dog was welcome too.

Standard is 5* and more.

“Peaceful Portsoy”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in August 2015

Comfortable house in an old part of town, down by the 17th century harbour. As well as having family connections here, it made a great base for a peaceful holiday in this charming part of Scotland with walks and places of interest aplenty. The Moray coast is well known for decent weather so far northland so it proved.

“All you could wish for”
Reviewed 27 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Absolutely delightful. This wonderful holiday house has everything one needs for a perfect holiday. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with all required for self-catering. The beds upstairs are comfortable as is the cosy living room.
Portsoy is ideally situated almost halfway between Inverness and Peterhead. For the whiskey tourist there are dozens of world renowned distilleries within 90 minutes drive of the village. For the walker or rambler the coast trail passes less than 100 meters from the house through the picturesque Portsoy harbour.
The real beauty of this holiday home is that, after a day of wandering around in the cold and wind, you can come back and relax in front of the gorgeous log fire in the front room.
Thank you Margaret and Ian for the wonderful welcome and for giving us a perfect base for a lovely holiday. We will certainly be booking in here again next time we come to Portsoy.
