“A lovely location on the harbour, the patio is a wonderful place to relax.”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Ian met us at Harbour cottage and showed us around and had lots of hints and tips about the area. Very welcome, welcome pack, thanks Ian and Ishbel.
The cottage is lovely with everything you need, didn't have a chance to use the wood burning stove as we had fantastic weather all week. Plenty of games for the kids and fishing rods - our teens were out fishing 6 out of the 7 days and didn't catch anything until the last day. FYI - don't feed the seagulls, they are very persistant.
Had a lovely holiday, the only downside to the cottage was that the staircase was quite steep,

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 2 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is a really nice little cottage. We joined my partner's parents here for a couple of days. We all wished we'd had longer. It's well furnished with bright, welcoming decor. It's well laid out with nice bright bedrooms. It's also well equipped with everything you could need. The little garden/courtyard at the back overlooking the harbour was particularly good. I could have sat and watched the comings and goings all day.

“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed 2 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My wife and I had a wonderful time in this beautiful cottage. We were welcomed by Ian and Ishbel giving us a tour and providing us with a lovely starter pack including a bottle of wine ( nice touch). The cottage is very well equipped and spacious in a perfect location beside the harbour .There's a good size area to sit outside with harbour views and gets the sun all day long if you are lucky enough . The area is perfect for long walks along the stunning coast. We were sad to leave. cant wait to return again.

“Amazing Harbour Cottage!”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The Findochty cottage had everything you could possibly want to make your vacation perfect, rain or shine. The Harbour cottage had an amazing view of the harbour and we were lucky enough to have great weather so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the view! The cottage was fully equipped with everything you need for all different age groups. Ishbel and Ian, who responded quickly to emails and requests, provided a welcome pack of food and wine which we really appreciated. This is a great area to explore the local beauty or to travel further a field. The local walking trails are easy with spectacular views and points of interest. We walked to Cullen and enjoyed the food at the Rockpool bistro, food was amazing, I would totally recommend "Sole on a Roll" yum!. Cullen also has a wee tourist information which was very helpful. We got the bus back to Findochty, they run every hour. Buckie had a really good Indian restaurant, sit in or take out. The local pub, easy walking distance from the cottage, served huge fish and chips, it gets quite busy so best to book if a larger group. I know that my mother in law is already thinking about her next holiday in Findochty, thank you for a great experience.

“Harbour Cottage”
Reviewed 6 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at harbour cottage. The location is excellent with a patio directly overlooking the harbour so there were always interesting views, especially at sunset. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable, with a particularly generous feature being a wood burning stove with a plentiful supply of wood. the wireless internet was fast and reliable, a really useful holiday addition. We went on many excellent walks in the area, perhps the best of which was Crovie and Troup Head to see the gannet colony. We would use this cottage again.
