Within a couple of hours, visitors can reach Inverness, Aberdeen and the Cairngorms for day trips. However, that’s not to say you wouldn’t be content exploring Portknockie itself and the surrounding area. This village was once a thriving fishing community and remains an excellent place to spot dolphins. If you go walking along the coast, be sure to keep your eyes peeled. For those who also want to get out on the water there is is the opportunity to do so around the corner at Cullen Sea School. For delicious local treats check out Glenglassaugh Distillery and Portsoy Ice Cream.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Portknockie To Rent.
- Mr Ford, June 2018 - verified booking
"The cottage was in a great location, prime site for touring the area. The village was lovely and the locals very friendly. There are not many facilities in the village now - the shop/ post office is up for sale, very low on stock and reduced opening hours. The fish and chip shop is excellent but you will have to queue - well worth the wait, and the opening hours are short. The local pub seems to be on reduced opening hours and not very inviting from the outside. S71546 has the potential to be a great cottage but currently it is looking a bit jaded. Paintwork and wallpaper is in need of a freshen up, the window in the upstairs front bedroom (the one with single beds) has a broken bottom hinge and demands some ingenuity if you open it and then try to close it! The front door has gaps around it and it was very windy during our stay - lots of draughts and rattling! Some of the bedding is looking past its best. There is a request in the cottage for guests to put out the bins on a Sunday. The elevated nature of this property and several flights of steps makes "putting the wheelie bins out" a bit of a challenge, especially for elderly guests. Beware of the upstairs flue for the boiler which is just about above where the wheelie bins are kept. We noticed on several occasions that when the boiler ignited it also ejected significant amounts of water from the flue onto anyone walking past below. The flue does not have a venting cap over it which suggests that when it rains water gets into the flue pipe and sits there until the boiler fires up. The rear patio needs weeding and the furniture is looking a bit fragile/ tired. There is very good, free wi-fi (does not appear to be limited to a certain number of laptops/ tablets or phones) and free-view TV in the property. However, the mobile signal for this area is poor. There is a landline for guests and an honesty box but there seems to be a bar on calls to mobiles. But you can use the telephone aspect of apps, such as Whats App, to piggy back on the strong wi-fi signal with good, clear results."

"We were all very happy with the accommodation, the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, appliances, crockery etc plenty of towels were supplied, beds made up on arrival and there was coffee, tea, sugar there if you hadn't had a chance to shop before arrival, cleaning equipment supplied...It felt like a home from home. The chippy down the road, about a 5 min walk is highly recommended, wish it was closer to home, staff were lovely and food exceptional, it gets very busy so a good idea to call the order in! There's a Tesco about 10/15 minutes drive in buckie and fuel at the Tesco petrol station is much cheaper than other petrol stations in the area. If you get a chance then we'd recommend booking a meal at The Galley in Whitehills and getting ice cream or sorbet from Portsoy ice cream parlour, they are all homemade and have 26 rolling flavours out of just over a hundred to choose from. There's an abundance of castles and waterfalls to visit, inchberrie is worth a walk around with your camera to hand. Portknockie is a great base to explore from, the cliff walks are glorious and bow fiddle rock is picturesque, both of which are a short walk from the fishing cottage."

"S59752 was more than we expected the views were amazing from the sun lounge, with stunning walks close by, via the old railway line to Cullen and Findochty and further if you wanted longer walks. The fish and chip shop in Portknockie is the best we have ever had. There was everything in the cottage you could wish for. The people in the village and neighbouring villages were very friendly and helpful. Spey bay is a short drive away with stunning walks as well. It's an amazing place we loved it. I have got to mention the homemade ice cream in Cullen it was delicious and the staff really welcoming. Castle Gordon is also worth a visit to their walled garden they were lovely and it was lovely to see the owners of the castle helping out in the gardens and getting stuck in and chatting to visitors about their vision for their project, the cafe was lovely as well. A beautiful place with plenty to do and see."

"We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Portknockie over Easter at S71546 Cottage. On arrival, and throughout the week, the cottage was warm and toasty which kept us nice and cosy after some beautiful walks along the cliff tops in the blustering wind! The kitchen was well equipped, towels were provided in every room and the large dining table meant we could all sit down and eat together. Excellent WiFi access, comfortable sofas and a large TV in the living area kept us entertained when the weather was too cold and rainy to venture out - the fairy lights in the fireplace added a cosy, homely touch too! On the whole we found the cottage to be cosy and spacious with everything you need for a self-catered trip away! We would love to visit again in the warmer weather to have a BBQ in the garden and enjoy the beautiful scenery in the sunshine!"
