“Excellent !!!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This was our 2nd time at this cottage. Simply put it's an excellent place that's got a real homely feel and the owners have added some great touches. There is everything that you need and the Welcome Pack is brilliant. Cottage is real close to the scenic harbor and stunning views. My son and I were able to fish down at the harbor for Pollock which was great and you can do a bit of Crab lining too. Our dog loves running around the Bay's and small beaches in Portknockie and Cullen. Lossiemouth and Findhor beaches are great too for a visit. Everything you need is very close to Portknockie with Cullen and Buckie on either side.
Only thing I would have liked was a 2nd TV for our teenage son in one of the bedrooms. Having said that we did survive, LOL. Thanks to the McLean's.

“Beautiful Cottage in a Beautiful location”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The cottage is well maintained and scrupulously clean, the kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal. The beds are comfortable and the bedding is first class, lots of beautiful towels provided. Our dogs had a ball on the local beaches every morning, which left us time to sightsee. The locals are friendly, a pity the local chippy is no longer open (best in the world) but still plenty of eateries around. We had a most enjoyable break in TIGH NA CALA . STUART & SHARON are great hosts.

“Immaculate Cottage!”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Nicest self-catering we've ever stayed at. Absolutely immaculate, beautifully decorated and every amenity supplied. Excellent value for the price. We don't have a single criticism. The owner, Sharon, was extremely helpful with information prior to our arrival. Location can't be beat. The village itself is lovely, very clean and picturesque. Traveled with 4 adults and two children - even the children loved the cottage. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Reviewed 5 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

There was 6 of us stayed here 06/04/13 for a week. The cottage is lovely it is a good size with plenty room. Has a great family sized kitchen with a large dinning table. Welcome pack on arrival really good. Cottage is in a perfect location which is great for exploring all this area has to offer. We would highly recommend this cottage. Many thanks to Stuart and Sharon for making our stay so comfortable..

“Beautiful Cottage”
Reviewed 27 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed at Tigh na Cala for ten days and absolutely loved it. Sharon and Stuart have made it feel like a home rather than a rental cottage. From the moment we (my wife and our friend Norma) entered there was nothing but the utters "brilliant", "great", "wow", as we looked around it. We have stayed in the picturesque village of Portknockie in other cottages before and they have all be very good. Tigh na Cala is the best of them, in our opinion. The decoration is light and bright, it is equipped to the highest standard. The beds and linen are of outstanding quality and comfort, (so much so, many a morning I had to be called down for breakfast) and we had the best nights sleeps ever on holiday.
Whenever we visit Portknockie, this will be our first Port of call (excuse the pun).
Thank you very much Sharon and Suart.
