Description

Sea Yonder is in a simply breathtaking position. It’s quaint external appearance belies the dramatic interior. Step inside the front door with its original stained glass panel into the light and airy living room with its patio doors opening onto the uninterrupted vista of the sea beyond the sitting out area and decking with hot tub. What a room to sit and soak up the stunning, ever changing sea level view, and watching the wildlife drift past, from bottlenose dolphins and grey seals to the myriad of birdlife. Enjoy a convivial drink or relax in the private hot tub under the stars. The conservatory also has a double bed, and again, this is a marvellous room to watch the sun rise over the sea in the early summer mornings. The well fitted kitchen/dining room has an Aga and lots of character, while the other bedroom on the ground floor has wonderful views over the seascape. A loft ladder takes you up to a low ceilinged bedroom, accessed from the hallway.
The cottage is just a short walk from the town’s amenities including shops, restaurants, swimming pool and fitness centre; while further along the coast, pretty fishing villages are set against dramatic rocky outcrops or stunning golden sands. Other activities locally include fishing, sailing and diving. Whisky and castle trails are on the doorstep and a boat trip to see the dolphins and seals is a must. Wonderful clifftop walks studded with caves from Findochty to Portknockie and Cullen are almost on the doorstep and there are some very good golf courses within a very short drive of the town, including Buckpool on the west and Strathlene to the east. View the stunning Bow Fiddle Rock near the village of Portknockie or stroll along some of the amazing beaches which make up this glorious coastline. Plenty of other wildlife can be observed at the mouth of Spey Bay, just a few miles west, including otters and ospreys and a stretch of the Speyside Way (a long distance footpath) runs from here to Buckie, providing good walking opportunities either way. Beach 200 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

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.
