One-of-two semi-detached period properties, a short stroll from a fine long sandy beach, a perfect holiday base for couples who want to relax or explore the Moray coastline, renowned for its magnificent scenery.

This traditional coastal cottage, situated in the picturesque seaside town of Cullen, is the perfect getaway for couples seeking a comfortable base from which to explore the Moray countryside and coastline. Stroll to the beautiful sandy beach for a sunset picnic or a paddle in the clear waters. Follow the coastal path to the glorious Sunnyside Beach and along to the imposing ruins of Findlater Castle. Sample some famous Cullen Skink in one of the town’s many welcoming eateries within walking distance of the cottage.

Located in a traditional residential terrace close to the Cullen viaduct, your cosy cottage is decorated in cool tones reflecting the seaside location of the property. Newly renovated in 2019, the interiors are bright and spacious with comfortable furniture and stylish accessories. Your private patio is perfect for al fresco meals as the seabirds call overhead.

Step through the front door into the spacious open-plan lounge/diner where the plump sofa invites you to sink into it, put your feet up and forget about the stresses and strains of modern life. Share tasty meals for two at the elegant dining table as you make plans for the next day’s activities. Your well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to make your stay a home from home and has access to the pretty rear patio garden. Freshen up in the contemporary bathroom before snuggling up in the restful double bedroom.

Heading outside, you will find a small south-facing patio garden where you can sit and enjoy an early evening glass of wine or light the BBQ for an al fresco meal. There is roadside parking, subject to availability, to the front of the property with extra parking on the square only a short walk away.

Climb up Castle Hill for panoramic views across the town and bay, explore the beautiful gardens at Cullen House and watch the bottlenose dolphins playing in the Moray Firth from the Three Kings Rocks.</p>

<P>The picturesque fishing village of Portsoy (5.5 miles) boasts a 17th-century harbour, vibrant local music scene and annual Scottish Boat Festival. Stroll the winding streets and pick up a piece of jewellery crafted from the famous Portsoy marble, some of which can be found in the Palace of Versailles.

<P>Take to the waters of the Moray Firth for a relaxing wildlife cruise. Set sail from Macduff Harbour (15 miles) in search of dolphins, seals and minke whales. Listen to the sounds of the mammals beneath the waves with the onboard underwater microphones. Spot puffins, razorbills and guillemots as you traverse the water. Once you disembark, why not visit the Macduff Marine Aquarium to encounter the sea creatures that live along the Moray Firth, including rays, dogfish and kelp?</p>

Lovely comfortable and relaxing place to stay with easy access to all local amenities. Cosy living space with the fire on. The house has a lovely secluded garden area which is a sun trap.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
