Description

A beautiful holiday cottage that has undergone complete renovation in 2020 and is the perfect place to base and explore this stunning coastline with the harbour and beaches just a short stroll away. The property has a spacious living room with doors to a conservatory, a formal dining room and an extension providing a stunning and well-appointed kitchen and utility room. There is a spacious bathroom and three bedrooms while outside there is an enclosed rear garden.
The cottage is on the outskirts of Banff, one of the sunniest and driest towns in Scotland. There are good walks from the harbour in Banff, right through to the quaint fishing village of Whitehills on the other side of Inverboyndie, where local fish can be bought. Other attractions in Banff include Duff House, Banff Museum and Bridge of Alvah, and within a short distance is Macduff Marine Aquarium. Take a boat trip in search of dolphins, puffins and whales along the Moray coast from Macduff.
The area is part of the National Cycle Network, with several sections designated traffic-free for relaxed cycling for all ages. The Banffshire coast is a haven for fishing, with good freshwater fishing in the lower beats of the River Deveron and excellent sea fishing. Along the coast are smokehouses and fish shops, as well as quality seafood restaurants. Play golf at one of the many good courses in the area including Duff House Royal in Banff itself, or follow the Whisky Trail inland, through amazing scenery. Beach 200 yards. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 200 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.
