“Excellent holiday”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage was very spacious a great big back garden for the kids and or dogs to enjoy, plenty of things to see and do and plenty of shops just 5 miles away. For your everyday needs there's a post office come grocery shop a few minutes walk from the cottage and beautiful scenery.

Hi, thanks for leaving us a review. I am pleased that you and Roddy enjoyed your stay. The garden and surrounding walks does indeed make it an ideal place to stay with dogs. We are very lucky to have the Duffus Inn within walking distance of the property. We would be delighted to welcome you back again in the future.

“Excellent cottage”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kirktoun Cottage. It's in a great location for exploring a really interesting area and our two night stay just wasn't long enough. The cottage itself is delightful - really comfortable, roomy, well equiped and with an excellent enclosed garden. Well appreciated by our two dogs. One evening, after a very long beach walk, we had a meal in the local pub/restaurant and it was delicious. The staff there have to be given a special mention as well for their warm welcome. All of the arrangmeents beforehand for the stay at Kirktoun Cottage couldn't have been more straightforward and I would certainly recommend.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 22 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Our stay at Kirktoun Cottage was all that we had hoped for. It is a very cosy and welcoming cottage and just feels right from the moment you enter. The kitchen, lounge and dining rooms are all good sizes and the two bedrooms are spacious.
The cottage is wonderfully located and it was a delight returning to somewhere so comfortable after a day exploring the beautiful Moray countryside and coastline.
If you wish to self-cater it has everything needed, but if you want to treat yourself you can easily walk a stone's throw away to the Duffus Inn that provides lovely meals.
Should the cottage be available we'll certainly stay again.
