Burghead Cottage

Our Burghead Cottage is a fisherman’s cottage built in 1857. Refurbished to provide bright and airy accommodation just a stone’s throw from the site of the old Pictish Fort, the harbour, visitor centre and the stunning sands of Roseisle Beach.

Upstairs there is a king size double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a family bathroom, with separate bath and shower. Downstairs you'll find a separate snug with access to the small, enclosed garden, and also an open plan lounge/dining kitchen area. What we love about this cottage is, as you step out the front door, you can see the sea, in 2 opposite directions!

Burghead is ideal, not just for a beach or dolphin spotting holiday, but also for touring the malt whisky and castle trails, playing one of the many local golf courses, as well as longer day trips to places such as the Cairngorms National Park or Inverness.

bookonline3Burghead itself is situated on a promontory, jutting out into the Moray Firth. The village is self contained, with three pubs within easy walking distance, all serving delicious local fish and chips (amongst other choices!), and other basic amenities including a small corner shop, newsagents and a lovely coffee shop, The Bothy, which is now serving pizzas on weekend evenings (booking recommended!).

Sandend Cottage

Set in the picturesque ‘get-away-from-it-all’ fishing village of Sandend, between the pretty harbour towns of Cullen and Portsoy on the Moray Firth coast.

This part of the North East of Scotland also lends itself to day trips, exploring the Castle trail, or partaking in a dram along the Whisky Trail or perhaps getting close to the dolphins and other wildlife along the Moray Firth.

bookonline3Sandend cottage has stunning views over the wide sandy beach from the kitchen, lounge and two front bedrooms. The elevated garden terrace and summer house, again with stunning views, are ideal for outdoor entertaining and barbeques. The enclosed garden and back utility/’wet’ area, along with fantastic coastal walks, makes this an ideal cottage for families, dog owners, walkers and surfers.

No.6 Seatown Cottage

No.6 Seatown is a traditional fisherman's cottage, built around 1850, and originally a thatched bungalow. With a lower roof, this cottage is cosy and intimate and has a sheltered and secluded garden.

The cottage is ideal for couples, those with young families, or those with limited mobility. Due to their low ceilings, the rooms upstairs are only really suitable for younger children, but there is a twin bedroom and 'snug' room with a second TV.

No.6 Seatown provides comfortable and cosy accommodation in a stunning location, just opposite the bridge to the fabulous East Beach and an easy walk to the woods along the river's edge.
