    Occupying a great position overlooking the tranquil marina in the delightful village of Findochty on the Moray Firth Coast, this traditional semi-detached fisherman’s cottage has been tastefully renovated to a very comfortable standard, with a cosy open fire in the living area, and patio doors leading from the kitchen area to the raised, fully enclosed terrace.

    Sailing and fishing enthusiasts can relax and enjoy the comings and goings in the marina, and watch the crabs being landed from the terrace. There is a lovely pub with views, just 300 yards away on the harbour front, which serves food and takeaway meals. It is family friendly, and pet friendly in the bar area only.

    Breathtaking beach and clifftop walks from the village form part of the Moray Coast Trail and take you into Buckie, Portknockie and Cullen where there are more pubs, restaurants, takeaways and shops within 3 miles. There are sandy beaches and coves with plenty of fishing heritage and sea life to explore beyond the marina, and a challenging 18-hole golf course 1 mile west of the village. With activities such as walking, sailing, fishing, diving, cycling, whale watching and golf available, there is much to do locally.

    During the summer, the daylight hours are very long providing every opportunity to enjoy the quality of the local scenery, and when the conditions allow, witness the amazing northern lights. The spectacular coastline ranges from steep cliffs with little fishing villages strung out at the base to fantastic sandy beaches, especially at Cullen, and also Nairn and Lossiemouth further west.

    There are many historic castles and gardens to explore including the spectacular ruined Findlater, the Joiner’s Workshop in Fordyce and Duff House in Banff. Whisky and castle trails are further inland starting with the Glenglassaugh distillery just 7½ miles away. A boat trip to see the dolphins and seals is a must, and the many neighbouring little villages have a treasure trove of antique and curios shops as well as coffee shops and restaurants, offering fine local food and seasonal produce. A true jewel in the Moray Firth Coastline, Findochty ensures a memorable holiday any time of the year, and on Thursdays, the fish and chip van visits! Beach 300 yards. Shop and pub 300 yards.

    Beautiful cottage right on the harbour with friendly locals and a great little pub close by. Lots of little extras left for us and for Allan the dog, which were all appreciated. Good communication from the owner and would highly recommend.

    Lovely cottage. Well equipped, clean and well located. Comfortable with lovely view of the Marina. Great for a relaxing holiday and coastal walks. The welcome pack for ourselves and dog was a lovely touch by the owners. Would return for another visit.

    Had a great week here in June 2019. Owners are lovely and are there to meet you (even if your late, when your sat nav takes you a mystery tour??), show you round ect, and left us and our dog a lovely welcome pack. Very much appreciated. Just the little touches/wee extras that make your stay more comfortable. Everything (and more) you would need in the cottage and it's the location is perfect right in the harbour. Spotlessly clean and well thought out when renovating the cottage. Defo recommend and will be back soon. Thanks Steve & Mandy

    Salty Dog cottage is superb. We have stayed in a few properties but for cleanliness, decor, space, location and the thoughtfulness of the owners this place takes some beating. There are innumerable little touches that add to the experience of staying here and it is evident that Mandy ( the owner) has thought carefully about the needs of the guests and has implemented these requirements, for example the kitchenware is all top quality and it appears to me that nothing was done on the cheap. Exceptional, if only it was a bit nearer to Preston I would go there lots of times

    We have just spent a fabulous week at The Salty Dog. Having stayed in many (dog friendly) holiday cottages over the years I can say this is by far the best equipped. The cottage has a lovely, homely feel to it and you feel welcome the minute you walk in the door. There was a lovely gift pack from the owner which included wine, chocolates and snacks for our dog which was unexpected but very much appreciated. I also have to mention the view from the patio which is just breathtaking, It was glorious sunshine when we were there and many an hour was spent sat with a glass of wine just taking in the view and watching the world go by. Whilst we did have some contact with Mandy, the owner, it was limited but I still got the impression nothing was too much trouble and if you needed help with anything she would be there. If you’re looking for peace & quiet in an idyllic setting then I can’t recommend The Salty Dog enough.
