Excellent accomodation
Large spacious house, easy to commute to many places of interest in surrounding areas. Recommend Cullen beach and visit to Bow Fiddle Rock.

Excellent, clean Villa. Will definitely be returning again.
After coming back to Preston Villa for a second time, I am pleased to say we got the same excellent service again. It's in a lovely spot, close to the harbour - perfect for a morning stroll to see the boats. Great family-friendly holiday home for the few days we were there, will definitely be returning again and again each year.

Well equipped apartment in central location
Within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Large roomy apartment with well equipped kitchen. Plenty of room for six adults in light and airy lounge. Lorraine was very friendly and helpful - she even gave us a starter pack of tea, coffee, milk and butteries! Would recommend apartment and would rent it again if in area.

Best place I've stayed in!
What a great holiday home, made very welcome by the owners who also left us some milk, bread, tea, coffee, sugar etc. Fully equipped with everything you need, very spacious apartment in a very central part of buckie with sea views at the front and a lovely garden at the back, hope to come back in summer to make use of this and explore the surrounding areas. See you soon!!

Stunning property,will be returning,perfect location too.
Spacious house oozing character,I instantly felt at home,lovely welcome by Lorraine the owner,milk,bread,tea&coffee there on our arrival,pictures don't do it justice or show the size of the rooms,also spotlessly clean,plenty towels etc,I could not ask for more,we will be returning as its perfect for or needs. Well equipped kitchen with a large dining room off,we basically lived in here as I cooked every day using fabulous local meat/fish. Hot water plentiful,heating efficient even though rooms huge,cleaning products etc there too,this is my type of place,full of character,easy for my mum who has slightly impaired mobility to get around,comfortable,a real home from home which im glad to have discovered as we come to the area regularly,this is our 3 rd time since June in Moray.I loved the bathroom, huge with a maroon suite,Lorraine described it as dated,I loved it and its a quality 4 piece bathroom,why pay a fortune to get a white one,wasteful, Lorraine has the right idea in keeping it,lovely retro flannel sheets in some beds,overall Preston Villa has a unique charm which seems unappreciated,excellent WiFi too,also heating / hot water ,excellent all round,can't wait to go back,difficult to find anything comparable, truly exceptional all rnl.n

bien aménagé, bien situé pour découvrir tous les petits ports magnifiques de cette côte, la colonie de phoques,
Région très agréable. 3 nuits, nous ont permis découvrir, la côte, une distillerie, un château. Il faut oser partir, le temps varie beaucoup et peut s'améliorer dans une même journée. Nous avons découvert à Buckie une colonie de phoques, à ne pas manquer.

large and in fair condition hol let
Very large holiday let, though could do with more photos to give it justice to its size. Showing signs of its age inside but in all in fair condition. The only downside to this property was the small television in so large a living room. Overall 9 out of 10.

About the neighbourhood
Buckie is well served by golf courses with the eastern and western edges of the community ending in 18 holes. To the eastern extremity with a spectacular clifftop location lies Strathlene Golf Course which stretches almost all the way to the village of Findochty and to the west, also on a clifftop, lies Buckpool Golf Club which reaches a good part of the way to the village of Portgordon. There is great fishing nearby as well, the River Spey being only a 10 min drive away. Bowling is a popular pastime in Buckie and the town boasts two greens. Buckie Bowling Club is on North High Street and Low Street with attractive views over the Moray Firth from the clubhouse. Victoria Bowling Club sits on West Church Street adjacent to Victoria Bridge and the Buckie Burn flowing below. Buckie is at the start of the Speyside Way long distance footpath. There is magnificent coastal scenery all along the Banff coast, with easy access to areas such as Glenlivet, Speyside and the Cairngorms. We also have great beaches here with Strathlene just over the road or Cullen a 5-10 min drive away
