Findochty Holiday Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Buckie, Moray, Scotland
This totally renovated, cosy 2 bedroom fisherman's cottage is a stone's throw from a small, secluded sandy beach, a short walk from a larger sandy beach and within easy walking distance of the harbour. The dolphins are frequent visitors to this area of coastline and are regularly seen during the summer months – keep an eye out at all times!
New for 2017 - super fast broadband!

The village has an excellent pub, The Admirals, as well as a chemist and post office, local store, and hairdressers.

The cottage makes an excellent base for exploring the area - there is plenty to do from golf, castles, whisky distilleries, wildlife watching, or just simply building sandcastles!

About the neighbourhood
Findochty is a picturesque fishing village dating back to as early as the 1400's. It used to be a busy fishing port, but the harbour is now home to leisure boats and used for pleasure. The village has an excellent pub serving meals, a convenience store, chemist and post office.

The nearby villages of Portknockie and Cullen are well worth a visit; Portknockie for its rugged coastline and stunning Bow Fiddle Rock and Cullen for its superb beach, unique shops and ice cream - people come from miles around for a Cullen ice cream!

Buckie is the nearest town, with all the usual amenities - super markets, petrol station etc. There is also a working harbour.
