In the Banffshire Coast, within 10 miles there are annual festivals including COAST the visual arts festival in May and the hugely popular Scottish Traditional Boat Festival in Portsoy in July.

Must see attractions include the Macduff Marine Aquarium, Duff House and the string of other delightful coastal villages including Pennan (famous for the film Local Hero), Gamrie, Whitehills, Sandend, Portsoy, and Cullen (home of Cullen Skink).

"Secret Hideaway"

Beautiful location the forgotten place, where you can get back to basics, relax in the lovely cottage at 40 Crovie, bedrooms are spacious and underfloor heating in basement shower room and kitchen. Coal fire and central heating if required. Clean and well looked after, would definitely recommend to others and can't wait for next visit.
