Description

The cottage takes its name from Three Creeks, which are the small creeks or inlets on the coast and can be found just a few strides at the end of the road. This pretty, traditional fisherman’s cottage for four is situated just a few steps from the lovely beach of Portnockie and has been decorated to provide bright and attractive holiday accommodation, whilst retaining a traditional feel.

The living room has a lovely wood burning stove to sit and relax in front of on those cooler nights, whilst the well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook up that hearty meal. With the accommodation all on the ground floor there is a double bedroom, twin bedroom, and a modern bathroom with a walk-in shower. Outside there is a private paved garden and seating area where you can sit and listen to the gentle crashing waves whilst enjoying a glass of wine. The property has been tastefully decorated and furnished, ensuring every comfort for you to relax in the beautiful surroundings of this coastal village. Most days, you can enjoy lunches and evening meals in the hotel in the village. Portknockie, which has an award-winning fish and chip shop, is a real gem in the heart of the Buckie coastline.

With dramatic and ever-changing sea views, it is a wonderful place for walkers and those who love to take in the local scenery. The neighbouring village of Cullen, about 2 miles away, is worth a visit. Why not try the local delicacy of cullen skink while you are there? If you are a keen golfer, then there are several courses within easy reach. The working fishing town of Buckie is about 4 miles away, and from here you can take a boat trip to search for the Moray Firth dolphins. Or, further afield at Spey Bay, you will find the popular Scottish Dolphin Centre and Nature Reserve. The famous Speyside Whisky Trail is also within easy reach and should not be missed. Beach 100 yards. Shop and pub 200 yards, restaurant 2 miles.

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.
