Description

The latest addition to our small ‘portfolio’ of luxury coastal cottages, we think this may just be our best. Set in the picturesque ‘get-away-from-it-all’ fishing village of Sandend, between the pretty harbour towns of Cullen and Portsoy, this cottage has stunning views over the wide sandy beach from the kitchen, lounge and two front bedrooms. The elevated garden terrace and summer house, again with stunning views, are ideal for outdoor entertaining and barbeques. Fantastic coastal walks right from your doorstep makes this an ideal cottage for dog owners or walkers and children will love the beach.

This part of the North East of Scotland also lends itself to day trips, exploring the Castle trail, partaking in a dram along the Whisky Trail or perhaps getting close to the dolphins and other wildlife along the Moray Firth. We are sure you will enjoy a break on the beautiful Banffshire Coast.

Location description from owner

The Aberdeenshire region

The Scottish Highlands were popularised as a tourist destination when Queen Victoria bought Balmoral Castle in 1848. It is easy to understand why, with the wide open spaces, the 'big' sky, rugged mountains and tranquil glens. Home to many of Scotland's most famous whiskies and the Cairngorms National Park, there are many opportunities for outdoor pursuits, including walking, fishing and mountain biking. There are also plenty of award winning golf courses to enjoy. The coastline is also stunning, with its mix of cliffs and coves and wide beaches with the whitest of sands. Whether you want to take advantage of the many activities on offer or relax and unwind, the Highlands will have something for you!

Portsoy

Sandend is a 17th century fishing village, one of the smallest and perhaps one of the most attractive along the Banffshire coast. It is known by the privileged few as a mecca for surfers and kayakers and occupies a beautiful location opposite a pretty beach, perfect for catching the waves or just building castles in the sand. At its east end is the newly re-opened Glenglassaugh Distillery, founded in 1875 but mothballed in 1986. Nearby are the remains of the Glassaugh Windmill, built in the early 1700s. Still standing are a stump surrounded by a lower base: which explains its local name of the cup and saucer.

Nearby Portsoy is a vibrant town, attractive with it’s twisting streets around the 17th century harbour. It has a number of pubs and restaurants as well as local shops and a small supermarket. It is also the home of the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival which takes place at the end of June.

In the other direction Cullen is also worth a visit. Driving from Sandend, the cluster of cottages making up Seatown along with a wide expanse of sandy beach, are majestically framed by the arches of the disused railway viaduct. Cullen is famed as the home of ‘Cullen Skink’ – a lovely thick potato and smoked haddock soup, as well as one of the best ice cream shops in the area.
