Shelterstone is a charming traditional stone cottage with walking access directly down to the sea. Originally two fisherman’s cottages, which have now been combined, Shelterstone has been sympathetically renovated and restored by the current owner. It offers spacious and modern accommodation whilst retaining many of its lovely and unusual original features. The main living area is simply stunning. Divided by a massive stone chimney breast housing a large wood burning stove, the lounge/dining room has beautiful redwood floors and ceiling and deep silled windows that drink in amazing views out to sea. Patio doors lead out to a pretty stone terrace/BBQ area, then onto a large lawned garden. There is access down to the coastal path and bay below. Three good sized bedrooms (one en-suite) makes this an ideal venue for a family holiday. This is wonderful cycling and walking country, with miles of coastal footpaths, woodland walks and trails right on the doorstep.

About the local area

There are numerous activities and places of interest within easy reach. The Moray coast is renowned for its fine beaches and its sea life, particularly the bottle nosed dolphins and colonies of seals that are regularly spotted close to shore. There is also an excellent boat trip to see the dolphins close to hand. The surrounding area is also steeped in history. Historic stone circles, fairy tale castles and ancient Pictish standing stones are all located close by. Visit the Moray Firth Wildlife Centre situated at Spey Bay, where the mighty river Spey reaches the sea. Seals, dolphins, whales and otters are all regularly seen, together with numerous sea birds, including ospreys. The crystal clear rivers in this part of the Highlands ensured the development of the whisky trade and there are many famous distilleries to visit along the nearby "Whiskey Trail". Golf, fishing, cycling, sailing, canoeing, surfing, bird watching and horse riding are all available locally, and with easy access down to the sea , canoes and kayaks can be carried down from the property and launched into the sea.
