Amazing!!
Coming from Canada we were hoping the home would be as great as it appeared on the website. It was even better. It felt like home but without any stress. Everything we could need was available and the cleanest place I've ever stayed. We appreciate the treats on the counter after a long trip up from Glasgow. Close to amazing hiking trails and even a little store for groceries. I wish I could come back again and again. Thank you for a week we will always remember.

Just Beautiful!
We just returned from a fantastic stay at this cottage in Findochty and we still can't believe our luck. The house is really well appointed, with all we needed for a comfortable stay with four adults and a toddler. Appliances and kitchen equipment have been very thoughtfully put together and the house even includes a washer and dryer. There is a bathroom for each bedroom, which was ideal for our party. But the star of the show is the location! The house is perfectly perched on a small cliff overlooking the Moray Firth with a view that changes daily. Like many guests before us, we were able to watch dolphins swimming by from the comfort of the kitchen window. The weather was kind, meaning we were able to spend many happy hours in the sunroom, on the deck, and eating at the picnic table. The views from the kitchen are really great on a rainy day but when the weather is cooperating, the garden is simply unbeatable. Alistair and Cathy dropped by early in our stay to check in on us and were really easy to communicate with leading up to arrival. We found them to be exceptionally generous hosts who clearly love sharing this beautiful corner of the world with other people. Highly recommended — we can't wait to return.

Coastal Luxury
A wonderful cottage in a beautiful fishing village. The cottage has everything you need and more and the views of the coast from the garden are amazing! We sat out on our last evening watching dolphins using the pairs of binoculars provided. Highly recommended - we will certainly be back!

The perfect stay!
What a fantastic place! The house is beautiful with a lovely garden and the best view ever. There was the added bonus of seeing the dolphins swimming past most evenings. The hosts have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. We’ll definitely be back

Perfect property and location.
We booked this property for 4 generations to celebrate a 70th and 2nd Birthday. The accomodation exceeded our expectations and the location is just breathtaking. Communication from our host before during and after our stay was excellent and the welcome pack provided was unexpected and beyond generous. Everything we could have required to make our stay comfortable had been thought of and we immediately relaxed into enjoying this wonderful property and making the most of our time in Findochty. We will definitely be back. Many thanks to our hosts for ensuring a memorable weekend for our special family occasion.

The best homily home we've stayed at!
We stayed for 4 nights, arriving on Easter Mon. The home & garden met all of our needs as a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children- one being a small toddler). The home was IMMACULATE. Every aspect was spotless, e.g the cutlery drawer wasn't full of crumbs, the cupboard shelves weren't marked with sauce, like we've found in other holiday homes. There was ample space for everyone, particularly pleasant, was the en-suites in 2 of the rooms. The home was decorated tastefully, furniture-very comfortable & there was plenty space for us all. The kitchen was the best room, triple aspect windows with uninterrupted views of the sea. The garden had a delightful summer house, facing the garden & sea, there was a BBQ with all facilities available to use it, there was also a wee fire pit in the corner of the garden, with close (and secure of course) proximity to the sea. Upon arrival, we found a generous welcome basket of 3 different wines, 3 Easter eggs, box of chocolates and the home was decorated with an Easter theme, which we all appreciated. This is the best holiday home we've stayed at and have recommended it to others. This review is testimony to the owners, who should be very proud of their holiday home.

Amazing place to stay
Absolutely amazing home furnished to a high standard and immaculate. Loads of thoughtful touches in the house such as binoculars, umbrellas. All kitchen items such as crockery and utensils were spotless and of a high standard and the welcome basket was very much appreciated. The views from the garden of the sea is breathtaking. You need to book here.

Fabulous house in quiet location with superb views
We stayed for four nights and would happily have stayed for much longer. The whole property is immaculate, very clean & extremely well equipped. Great views of the coast from the summer house & from inside the house. It is one of the best properties we have ever stayed in. There are lots of great walks, cycle paths & places to visit nearby. Findochty & the other nearby coastal villages are all very attractive to visit. Thanks for all the info provided in the house & online beforehand, very helpful for planning & exploring the area. Provision of the welcome pack was very generous & so kind of you. The kitchen/living area has a split level floor. There is a step down from the seating area to the kitchen. Unfortunately we tripped several times on this step. Maybe it would be helpful if this step could be highlighted in some way to make it more obvious? The other issue I had was that the blinds in the twin bedroom did not keep out all the light. I like to be able to sleep in total darkness. Maybe a different type of blind or curtain would keep out the light better? Despite the above two issues, we had a fantastic holiday and would love to return. We won't hesitate to recommend it to others. Thank you ever so much.
