Stay in this traditional cottage with amazing sea views. A perfect base for a couple, family or friends to explore, relax and enjoy a holiday on the beautiful scenic Moray Firth Coast.

With wonderful sea views, this traditional cottage is the perfect base to explore, relax and enjoy the coast with loved ones. Originally a fisherman’s cottage, the property is just a short stroll from the nearest beach in the picturesque village of Findochty. Enjoy a refreshment on the harbour front, take a boat trip to spot the resident dolphins or simply relax on one of this area’s sandy beaches. After a busy day, return to this inviting bolthole for a family meal with a sea view in the kitchen/diner followed by a cosy evening in front of the open fire.

Inside, this welcoming cottage is homely and bright, with traditional decor and plenty of natural light. Cook up a storm in the light and airy kitchen/diner, where a delightful round table overlooks the ever-changing harbour outside. At the end of a long day spent exploring the local area, stoke up the open fire and settle in for a cosy night on one of the inviting armchairs or sofas in the lounge. Lose yourself in a good book from the shelf or hunker down in front of the TV/DVD. Climb the cottage style stairs to the first floor, where you will find two delightful bedrooms, both boasting lovely sea views and spectacular sunsets with the Caithness hills in the background. A small study between the rooms is ideal for anyone inspired to start their novel while away or simply catch up on some work.

Step outside to the front of the cottage to be greeted by breathtaking sea views and the bustling harbour below. To the rear, a suntrap garden with tiered south-facing patio and table and chairs is perfect for al fresco dining during those long summer afternoons and evenings. A charming summer house offers a cosy nook for when the weather turns chillier.

Findochty itself is home to a popular pub and cafe, while a convenience store can be found in nearby Portnockie (6 miles). No visit to this area is complete without a boat trip to see the famous Moray Firth Dolphins and the stunning coastal scenery along the way, while those who prefer to stay on dry land might enjoy a round on one of the golf courses nearby. Whisky lovers should sample the delights of the Malt Whisky Trail, made up of a small collection of distilleries and other whisky sites. For family fun, visit the MacDuff Aquarium (19 miles) or head for the two outdoor bowling parks in nearby Buckie (3 miles). A small fishing town with a large harbour, marina and number of leisure facilities, Buckie is home to frequently spotted dolphins, otters and ospreys and also marks the start of the Speyside Way. Running all the way to Ballindalloch, this scenic route follows the River Spey to link the Moray coast with the edge of the Grampian Mountains, offering miles of spectacular walks.

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.
