Please note: There is a step in the garden an unfenced stream that runs through the adjoining grounds, 50 yards away.
    This attractive, detached 19th-century cottage has been restored by the current owners of the country estate. The main living accommodation is on the ground floor, with high ceilings, deep-silled windows and wonderful views across to the sea, all the rooms are bright and welcoming. The fully fitted kitchen leads through to the pretty living room. There is an attractively presented dining room adjoining, and a small shower room off the main hall. An original staircase leads up to three generously proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, all enjoying views across to the sea or open countryside.
    The Gate Lodge is situated at the start of the ¾ mile private lane that leads up to the main country house. This beautiful tree lined approach lane is bounded by mature trees with a pretty burn and waterfalls meandering alongside. With an abundance of wild flowers, the occasional otter and numerous local deer, it is a lovely walk direct from the cottage. The owners run a small café and local craft business from the main house and visitors are welcome to wander in the 24 acres of grounds and enjoy the surrounding countryside. The immediate area is noted as an area of outstanding archaeological interest. Brochs, cairns and standing stones are all found in the locality.
    There are numerous places of interest and sporting activities in the area. The nearby village of Lybster has an interesting past, built at the height of the 19th-century herring boom. With its pretty harbour and beach it is well worth a visit. This coast has some of the most outstanding beaches to be found anywhere. Fishing, golf, horse riding, kayaking, sailing, mountain biking and wildlife watching are all enjoyed locally, and puffins, seals, dolphins and whales are seen around these coastal waters. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    "had a great time would go back again"
    Jim ‐ 26 Aug 2019
    "The house has a spacious living room, and 3 nice bedrooms and well equiped kitchen. The bathroom is very narrow and shower cabin is uncomfortably small. The owners are very nice and welcome their guests with cake and fresh eggs. Also they are happy to provide the guests with all sort of information about the surrounding areas."

    "Really enjoyed the holiday very relaxing"

    "The cottage was warm and cosy during a snowy January stay. It was well equipped with everything we needed.The bathroom is tiny with very little room to move around. The décor is rather outdated."
    Nicki ‐ 5 Nov 2018
    "We had a great time at the gate lodge, prefect for us as we were visiting family couple mile away, the Forse of nature cafe in the main house was lovely and even did vegan food n cakes, the owners were very friendly and welcoming"
