Just spent the most enjoyable week at Sailmakers. The owners have renovated it to a very high standard and it has been tastefully decorated. The upstairs lounge window offers panoramic views overlooking the moray firth. A real jewel of a cottage and great location.

“Just perfect!”

We stayed at Sailmaker's Cottage for the first week of July and it was just wonderful! Its ocation is amazing - we spent hours looking out of the window at the sea, watching the ships passing by and were lucky to see dolphins several times that week. The cottage itself is modern, perfectly clean, well-equipped and beautifully decorated.
The owners are very friendly and gave us lots of information about the area. Their welcome package was much appreciated!
We hope to be back one day!

The accommodation is perfect and the views from the lounge picture window are amazing. Everything you need has been provided. We walked for miles and never got tired of the scenery. We would highly recommend staying here. We will return in the future.

“Great cottage!”

Definitely the best self catering cottage I've stayed in! Very nicely decorated, and spotlessly clean. The view from 'that' window is amazing, our 8 year old spent ages watching the ships going past.

The welcome hamper and milk in the fridge were nice additions and very welcome after a very long journey!

Portknockie is also a lovely place to stay, very peaceful and a good base to explore the area (just make sure you try the fish and chips).

“Everything perfect!”
Reviewed 5 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This cottage definitely had the wow factor. Ann the owner had thought of everything. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, warm,spacious and had spectacular views out to sea. Would definitely recommend this cottage as the ideal place to stay to discover the region.
