Please note: The property has a natural water supply from a borehole. There are 2 steps in the garden.. This detached barn conversion, adjacent to the owner’s home, is located just outside the lovely conservation village of Fordyce, 1½ miles from the Moray coast. A magical place, the village is a warren of narrow streets and beautiful houses still following a medieval plan, and all wrapped around a magnificent centrepiece, Fordyce Castle, simply sitting on a bend in the village street. The holiday cottage is very comfortable and warm, and takes advantage of the panoramic views of both sea and countryside, with the arched French doors in the living room leading to a sunny sitting-out area at the front. Fordyce also offers an attractive park opposite the old kirkyard as well as a Victorian garden. The sandy beach at Sandend is a quick drive or a 45-minute walk from the cottage, where local fish can be bought and surfers enjoy the waves. Good coastal walks abound through the old fishing villages of Portsoy and Cullen, or alternatively travel inland through castle and whisky country. There are plenty of golf courses in the vicinity, and the variety of bird and wildlife both onshore and off will please the keen nature lover. Shop, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

"Perfect and the attention for detail for the dogs amazing"

Caroline, November 2018

"The Brae Steading is a fantastic holiday cottage which offers everything you’ll need for a memorable getaway. The cottage is cosy and comfortable with everything to a high standard. The location is stunning, with amazing views and beautiful dark night skies. Within walking distance to the local village and nearby harbour town ( under 3 miles) also within a 10 minute drive to a glorious dog friendly beach. Just over an hours drive takes you to Inverness or Aberdeen. We highly recommend The Brae Steading after spending a fantastic weeks holiday there. It was a truly perfect holiday that we didn’t want to end."

Carol, November 2018

"Very relaxing holiday in a familiar area. Extremely well equipped cottage."

Ann, October 2018

"A second stay at The Brae Steading and I hope it won't be my last. The hosts are very welcoming (welcome tray including treats for the dog and milk in the fridge are lovely touches) but are not intrusive. It's a wonderful place to unwind whilst still being close to plenty of places to visit if that is what you are looking for. The hosts provide lots of suggestions for walks which I'm still working my way through. Looking forward to my next visit."

Mary, October 2018

"Top notch accommodation, fabulous views and location on a fascinating coastline."

Martin, October 2018

Esther, October 2018

"Peaceful location,beautiful views"

Angela, September 2018

"The Brae Steading is a very comfortable home from home, with everything one needs for a great stay. The owner is very welcoming and greets visitors with a tea tray all set and milk in the fridge.The location is superb, just back from the coast with a gorgeous view from the sitting room window.The coastal paths offer great walking and the small towns and villages along the coast are a delight."

Chris, September 2018

"relaxing holiday, surrounding area very clean and litter free, roads in good nick so a pleasure to drive in the area. House was great"

Irene, September 2018

"Great place to stay and brilliant views from the lounge. There is all you require there and the local village is very attractive. The location is great for visiting the coastal villages to the East and the West. Aberdeen and Inverness are easily reached for a day out. The hosts are great people and on site should you need any help."

Dave, August 2018

"Lovely cosy apartment in a great location with wonderful views over the Moray Firth, and a great base to explore that coast / area from."

Gavin, July 2018

"Brae Steading was an excellent cottage, really well maintained and in a delightful location. The information pack was really helpful and up to date; the owner was very welcoming and helpful. We would stay again without reservation. Many thanks for a very memorable experience."

Nigel, July 2018

"Stayed for the second year running, and have also booked for next year. Washing machine added this year was a big help.Our dog had a great holiday too.Dog friendly places to recommend are the cafe at Portsoy old harbour, and the hotel at Cullen next to the railway viaduct.There is a recently opened dog friendly coffee shop in Fordyce, but when we went to try it we were ignored and ended up leaving.They score 0/10, as in contrast to the Brae Steading they were in need of a refresher in customer care."
