Harbour Cottage, Gardenstown, Aberdeenshire offers the best of North East Scotland's coast and country. Situated on the Moray Firth coastline, it boasts amazing views out to sea from the delightful harbour and beach. You may catch a glimpse of the dolphins, that often swim in the bay, being just one species of the abundance of wildlife the area is inhabited by.

Originally an old net store, for the once thriving fishing village, the accommodation had been fully restored to a high standard. The open plan design, which has one en-suite bedroom, is ideally suited to a couple looking for a peaceful getaway at an affordable price.

Entrance is through our newly built porch, where you can hang coats jackets etc. The downstairs has kitchen, with dining area, and lounge. The kitchen has cooker, washing machine and other domestic appliances for your use. The lounge has a TV, DVD player, music centre and a selection of CDs, DVDs and books. There is a spiral stair leading to the upper floor.

Upstairs is the bedroom with double bed (linen included), a second TV with DVD player, and ensuite. There are views over the bay. The bathroom has a corner bath and separate shower with wc and basin. Towels are provided.

A full size single self inflating electric airbed is available for a child or additional guest. A travel cot and booster table seat can also be provided. Linen is not provided for the third additional bed or cots.

Heating is electric eco wall panel heaters.

Gardenstown, locally known as Gamrie, was built into the old red sandstone cliffs. This traditional fishing village has much to explore - walks, heritage, arts and crafts, to name but a few. Together with the adjacent villages of Crovie and Pennan it has proved to be a sought after film and TV location due to it's natural beauty and heritage. It is also in close proximity to a number of great visitor attractions, golf clubs, whisky trail and much more.

The village itself has a pub, shop, restaurant and art/craft gallery with tearoom. For those who want to stay in touch with the outside - free WIFI is available in the cottage. We are also 'Pet Friendly!.

Many visitors return to the village year after year to experience the wonderful sunsets, friendly local community and little peace away from a mad, mad, world!

The small village harbour is full of small boats and is a main focus of the village. There are local festivals organised throughout the summer. A lovely restaurant is located on the habour grounds. Booking is advised.

The beach lies to the west of the village where adults and children alike can enjoy walking, exploring or generally relaxing. There are two streams that run down from the cliffs into the sea. Dolphins, and sometimes even whales, can often be seen in the bay. Puffins, herons and an abundance of other bird life have made the beach and surrounding cliffs their home. At the far end you can walk up the hillside to the historic St Johns Churchyard, said to have originated in 1004, which sits proudly overlooking Gardenstown. The churchyard can also be accessed by road on the outskirts of the village.

The local pub sits at the end of the Main Street where you can enjoy a leisurely drink in a traditional atmosphere. Food is also served. There is also a shop at the top of the village where you can pick up any essentials.

"Lovely relaxing holiday"

I would recommend this cottage for a relaxing holiday. We took our dog and lots if walks on the beach . The cottage was lovely and had everything you could think of for use there. It was a nice idea of providing imperishable items and just asking guests to replace anything that ran out. Gardenstown itself the people there are so friendly we felt like one of the locals. Nearby crovie is lovely to walk to just on the cliff bottom. Harbour restaurant is a must but book way in advance.
