With lovely sea views from the upstairs bedroom windows, Tradewinds is a stone’s throw away from the sea front in Portknockie. This charming property is a great base to explore all the local area has to offer. A perfect home for families or couples, it is a well-equipped cottage with plenty of space for everybody. Hours can be spent watching the boats in the two basin harbour, or looking for bottle nose dolphins in the Moray Firth. The dramatic scenery makes for picture perfect memories and make sure to snap a photo of Bow Fiddle Rock.
There are plenty of walks available around the local area; try walking to nearby Findochty or Cullen to sample the local Cullen Skink. For golf enthusiasts, both Cullen and Buckie Golf Courses are close by, and of course you can’t visit this part of Scotland and not try the world class Whisky Distilleries, with Macduff, Strathisla and Bells close by. The Scottish Dolphin Centre situated at the beautiful Spey Bay is approximately 12 miles away and certainly a must see attraction, while the larger town of Elgin is just 20 miles away. Beach 160 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 180 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.
