“Cruden Bay is an excellent base”
Reviewed 8 October 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Comfortable accommodation close to Cruden Bay Golf Club with all amenities. Big double bed and sizeable kitchen, with separate lounge. Very convenient for golfers. Cruden Bay is an excellent base for touring the north-east region, and the golf clubhouse is excellent for meals and socialising. This is a beautiful stretch of Scottish coastline.

“Perfect Stay!!”
Reviewed 28 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Stayed nine nights in July 2018.
This was during the heat wave and
the cottage was comfortable each day. The mini kitchen allowed a breakfast at home each day. A great
Base for travel and golf

“This is the place to come to recharge your battery.”
Reviewed 12 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Cruden Bay is in a delightful part of the country, stunning views along the coastline, unspoilt and uncluttered beaches, wonderful walks, and loads more. This is our 3rd time at Slains, and there will definitely be a 4th. I prefer self catering to a hotel, and this cottage is perfect. If you want to do all your own cooking it is adequately stocked, but there are plenty of places to eat, and they need not be expensive. Liz looks after the cottage in Shona’s absence, and she is lovely - there if you need anything, and she has a good local knowledge ie what to do, where to go etc etc. I played golf 5 times during the week and there are a variety of courses round every corner. Friendly, welcoming , what more can you ask for. Our wives shopped till they dropped and loved every minute of it. My advice to everyone is if you want anything, then ask. Liz, Shona, and all the locals are genuinely interested in you having a good time and will fall over backwards to help you have a memorable stay.

“Perfect location to see the Northeast of Scotland”
Reviewed 10 February 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Slains cottage is perfect for two people, it will also fit 2 extra for company. It has everything a person needs to make themselves feel like they are home. The beach is fantastic even in the winter. Looking for shells is always fun. Cruden Bay as a village has everything a person could want eating out places, golf on a fantastic course, a fish truck that comes through once a week and regular bus service if one doesn't care to drive on the wrong side of the road. We arrived December 29for almost 3 months.
The wind is cool but definitely warmer than the minus 31's at home. we will definitely be back .
