“Lovely base camp for a real Scottish experience”
Reviewed 15 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This lovely old cottage in the north coast village of Portsoy is fully modernized inside with a luxurious bathroom and the most comfortable bed imaginable! We rented this cottage for two weeks and appreciated the cozy atmosphere with lovely personal touches of the proprietor, like the basket of tea and scones, butter, bread and jam to welcome us! Situated in the heart of Portsoy, a quaint working fishing village, it was a pleasant walk to the bakeries (2 delicious bakeries!), the fish and chip shop, local pubs, antique shops and the Co-op grocery, which sold locally sourced vegetables, fish and meat along with traditional Scottish oatcakes and whisky! We used the Auld Shop Cottage as a base camp for day trips to visit whisky distilleries, castles, ruins, standing stones, antique shopping and historical sites. We spent time walking the coast along pristine beaches and were fortunate to see dolphins jumping in Portsoy bay almost daily. We loved coming back to our cozy cottage every evening, sitting by the fire and reflecting on our adventure of the day. It felt like home. We recommend this to everyone who wants to have a true Scottish experience.

“Absolutely excellent”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We really enjoyed our stay on the coast of the Moray Firth. The cottage is freshly refurbished throughout, well appointed, immaculately clean and well equipped. The small touches, including the welcome pack were thoughtful and appreciated. The kitchen is modern, stylish and has everything you need.This is an absolutely excellent holiday cottage

“Brilliant comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have recently spent a delightful week in The Auld Shop Cottage. It is a delightful cottage in a lovely part of Portsoy with a view down to the sea. Immaculate pleasant decor throughout. A very thoughtful owner provides you with starter food pack and washing powder/ wash up liquid as well as linen and towels. Four of us were comfortably cosy for a memorable week's holiday and were truly sorry to leave at the end.

“Perfect cottage in north of Scotland”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at the cottage over a weekend and found it to be immaculately clean and very well equipped. Our daughter is 20 months old and we were provided everything for our stay - highchair, stair=gate and cot.

Just wish we had a longer stay!

“Excellent accommodation and location”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What a wonderful cottage, clean, central location and wonderful view. We visit every year for the Boat Festival and this year managed to rent this wonderful cottage which is located 2/3 minutes from the harbour. We had friends staying an overnight for the festival and found the cottage to have completely fulfilled our requirements for a lovely stay, so good we have already booked for next year.
Thanks to Judith we had provisions available to start us off which was a great thought.
