Description

At the end of a quiet, terraced street of traditional houses in the coastal fishing village of Findochty, this ground floor apartment has been carefully furnished to make a very comfortable and relaxing holiday base for couples, or small families. The wonderful rear garden, accessed directly from the garden room, has a distinctive, tropical feel with exotic palms alongside poppies and other colourful plants, giving the impression of stepping out into an island paradise!
Just a short walk from the bustling harbour, there is a pub serving food where you can watch the comings and goings of the marina at your leisure. There is plenty of heritage to explore on this coastline and activities such as walking, sailing, fishing, diving, cycling and golf available locally. During the summer the daylight hours are very long, providing every opportunity to enjoy the quality of the local scenery. The amazing coastline ranges from steep cliffs with little fishing villages strung out at the base to fantastic sandy beaches especially at Nairn and Lossiemouth, further west. There are many historic castles and gardens to visit from the spectacular ruined Findlater Castle to Duff House in Banff. Pleasant cliff walks can be enjoyed to the neighbouring villages of Cullen and Portknockie where the natural wave cut arch known as Bow Fiddle Rock can be seen. Beach 400 yards. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

About the local area

The beautiful county of Moray lies east of Inverness and Nairn and is well hidden from the main Scottish tourist route. The coast is fairly flat, characterised by large stretches of sand dunes backed by forests and wide bays. Further inland the landscape changes to agricultural, rising up across empty moorland, criss-crossed by rivers and glens towards the foothills of the Cairngorms.

Elgin, Moray's capital is an elegant town offering an array of historic features to view including the magnificent 13th Century cathedral. There is also a Biblical garden, museum with fossil collections and Drumin Castle, a 14th Century tower house.

Not surprisingly this area is a haven for hikers. A network of paths and quiet back roads link the coastal towns and villages making it easy to explore the mosaic of farmland, woodland and shore. Follow the Moray Coastal Trail from Forres and you will eventually reach historic Cullen. Along the way you will find information boards describing your journey.

This unspoilt county abounds with wildlife, such as ospreys, otters, crested tits, red squirrels, pine martens and bottlenose dolphins. Visit Culbin Forest which stands on one of the largest sand dune systems in Britain, and Culbin Bar the best example of a shingle spit.

Visitors to the region will also discover a string of ancient Highland communities all offering you a warm welcome and a variety of attractions. From Historic ruins and castles to dynamic eco-communities, from scenic coastal woodland walks to thrilling climbing, skiing and mountain biking. Whether you want to stroll along the riverbank or beach, or tackle something more adventurous, there are always plenty of options when it comes to getting active.

Moray offers a real taste of the true traditions of the Highlands that is sure to have you coming back again and again.
