Booked a week, would have loved to extend the trip.
Met the owner to receive the keys and right away knew this was going to be a great stay.
A open, helpful and honest man. It's great to see that there are still people out there that are willing to invest both time and money in taking care of places like this.
The cottage itself was warm and cosy, everything worked and with wood floors, period sinks and fittings made the rooms just that little bit more special.
Wifi and TV was great which will keep teens happy.
A few minutes drive from the city center with all that has to offer.
A fantastic week was had by all and next time we are in Aberdeen, this is where you will find us!

“Fabulous”
Reviewed May 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We just loved the lighthouse cottage. Right from the booking everything was very efficient as we needed to make sure there was no feathered bedding. The owner met us and was very friendly and welcoming. The cottage was very clean and cosy and very quaint. We loved the roll top bath and the belfast sink as well as the pulleys to put washing. I would recommend the cottage and would certainly return.

“Lovely Cottage and Great Sea Facing Location”

The owner warmly welcomed us to the Lighthouse Cottage was extremely helpful throughout the entire visit. The quality of furnishings and fixtures and fittings was to a high standard throughout and the beds were very comfortable indeed. The kitchen was very spacious and the utensils and crockery adequate to use. We especially enjoyed walking along the sea paths by the lighthouse as the weather was particularly windy (gale force at times it seemed), and exploring the rock formations in the immediate area. All in all, a very enjoyable stay and we would definately return in the future.

“Cosy, warm, and very inviting!”
Reviewed February 14, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I love querky and this ticked all my boxes! We had a lovely welcome from the owner and appreciated the thoughtful food and drink parcel ;) The 2 bed cottage is cozy and warm and is very tastefully decorated to a high standard.

It is only a short windy walk into aberdeen and lovely for walks along the coast. You will need a car to get to most places like shops etc but everything you need is only 5mins by car.

Definitely recommend ;)
