Description

This delightful, traditional stone terraced cottage is situated down a short lane just a few yards from the seashore in the historic Yardie area of Buckie. Here, fisherman’s cottages are in little rows at right angles to the sea and were originally built like this to be sheltered from winter gales. Having all mod cons within, this property is a cosy and welcoming cottage whatever the weather. The cottage has its own parking space at the back and a very sheltered, sunny sitting-out area which can be accessed directly from the living room. A bright and tasteful interior, and a well-equipped kitchen/dining room ensure a relaxed and enjoyable stay.

Look out for the famous Moray Firth dolphins, which are regularly spotted from the shore, or take a walk along stretches of sandy beaches from Cullen to Nairn, where you will find quaint fishing villages and marinas. Inland, the Whisky Trail is a must for those who enjoy the amber nectar, while fishing enthusiasts can indulge their passion on the River Spey or Findhorn, or try sea fishing in the Firth. Plenty of golf courses, including the championship course at Lossiemouth, will test golfers of all abilities. Shops, cafés and restaurants are ¼ mile away, and nearby is a play area for children. Beach 300 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.
