Gannet Cottage is a traditional fisherman's cottage with all mod-cons located in the Seatown area of Gardenstown, which is a conservation area, directly on the seafront in a stunning and quiet location of natural beauty. Fantastic sea views from inside the cottage. From your sofa watch the many birds on the seashore; try and spot the dolphins, or just watch the boats entering and leaving the harbour.

Traditional features like low ceilings; small steep staircase; bedroom door entered directly off the staircase etc are complimented by modern day luxuries like a wood burning stove; electric heating; WI-FI; wall mounted large flat screen television with freeview; Egyptian cotton bedding; viewing...Gannet Cottage is a traditional fisherman's cottage with all mod-cons located in the Seatown area of Gardenstown, which is a conservation area, directly on the seafront in a stunning and quiet location of natural beauty.

We loved this traditional little cottage. I totally chilled out sitting with the wood burning stove just feet from the sea. We'll be back.

About the neighbourhood
Gardenstown was founded in the 1700's and the harbour is used now by local fishermen and pleasure boats. The village has many quaint streets with the cottages on the seafront being 'gable on' so giving shelter from the sea conditions. There is a local 'spar' in the village as well as a local pub and a in season a tearoom. This is an ideal location if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of normal life, being in a quiet area of natural beauty. It is also an ideal haven to each evening if you wish to tour the area whether that be the 'Whisky Trail', the 'Castle Trail' or simply to visit some of the other towns and coastal villages. Coastal walks start right at the front door of the cottage...
Getting around
Arriving by car is the best way to see the area and give you the freedom of travelling where you wish, as bus services are limited. If flying in and renting a car Aberdeen is the busiest local airport (approx 1 hour) then Inverness (approx 2 hours).
