Charming cosy romantic retreat, close to the sea shore. This stylish detached cottage, nestled in a peaceful private setting benefiting from sea views from the side garden, within a short stroll to a beautiful sandy beach

This former fisherman’s cottage is set in the heart of the coastal town of Cullen, steps from the shore. It’s just the place for a romantic getaway, whether the waves thunder or the sea twinkles.

Nestled in the Seatown area among other houses from the original fishing settlement, this cottage has been refurbished with a modern style yet retains many delightful period features such as the deep-set windows, rustic doors, and beamed ceilings. The comfortable lounge area has a cosy wood burner and a great rocking chair perfect for curling into with a magazine as well as sofas and armchairs. There’s a dining table that connects the living space to the sleek galley kitchen where an electric oven and hob plus microwave and dishwasher makes eating in a pleasure, with plenty of counter space too. The smart white-tiled bathroom is downstairs off the entrance hallway and has a shower over the bath. Stairs lead from the living room up to a lovely double bedroom in the eaves with windows on both sides. Wake up to the sound of the waves washing onto the sand and the seagulls calling, before taking breakfast outside in the small side garden with views out over Cullen Bay.

The house is less than 50 metres from sandy Cullen Beach, and it's a few metres along to the harbour for boat trips into the bay, and a variety of water sports. The village centre is 400 metres around the corner from the house with a range of shops and cafes where you can sample the tasty local delicacy Cullen Skink – a potato and smoked haddock creamy soup that the village has become famous for. Cullen Golf course is half a mile along the coast path, and you can continue along the grassy path right to the impressive Fiddler's Bow Rock on the headland. For a change of scene, return back via pretty Portknockie village and follow the disused railway line back to Cullen over the towering viaduct with spectacular views over the village, sea and to Bin of Cullen. Look out for the famous Moray Firth dolphins which are regular visitors to the bay. Any keen hikers wishing to conquer the hill can walk straight from the house to the summit, which is about an 8-mile round trip, or park up near the top and climb up and back down in about 3.5 miles. Don't miss a stop at the Cullen Bay Hotel on the way back, for a bowl of soup, or a well-deserved pint with more amazing sea views.

We had a delightful stay at Sea Neuk. Very clean and comfortable. The bed was super comfortable and at night we drifted off to sleep to the sound of the sea crashing against the harbour wall. A very special place to spend our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Highly recommended, thank you to our hosts for the lovely welcome gifts as well.

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.
