Auld Shop Cottage is a charming cottage in the seaside town of Portsoy, It was formally a shop/family home which was built approximately 250 years ago. The auld shop was vacated and fell into a derelict state, until it was rebuilt in 1997. Today it still retains its auld charm.

Portsoy is a seaside town with a stunning 17th Century harbour at its heart. The cottage is just a 3 minute walk from the harbour and benefits from a view of the sea from the lounge window. The town has lots of local amenities and is a great base from which to explore the rich landscape of both Aberdeenshire and Moray from Mountain to sea.

The following facilities are available to make your stay a pleasant one.

All linen, towels, gas and electricity are included. The Auld Shop Cottage offers free WiFi.

A washing machine, drying and ironing facilities are available (I am aware many people may not want to wash clothes while on holiday but for your convenience I will supply some clothes washing liquid/tablets) Dish-wash liquid and dish towels are provided.

To ease you into your holiday I will provide a free welcome starter pack which includes tea, coffee, fresh milk, butter, locally baked bread and biscuits and porridge oats, so you can relax into your surroundings before having to go shopping.

Sorry no smoking or pets.

I can provide a high chair and cot at your request.
