Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was/is very spacious and comfortable with fantastic views. Mobile signal not great in this part of the world which made the week even better!

Spotted dolphins off the harbour at about 7pm last night-fantastic!

Donna who looks after the house could not have been nicer and more helpful!

Amazing spot

  • 5 of 5

The Old Post Office is an amazing spot to stay with beautiful walks available on the beach and many sights to see within driving distance. Craig was very responsive to queries and the house was very cozy with all amenities. The heating system can be quirky at times. Our daughters loved the cozy rooms and walking on the beach

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Daniel, we're very happy you enjoyed your stay. The heating system is a great bit of tech when it's behaving itself. I'll have it all checked out and hopefully no other problems.

Excellent location, enough space for a family of eight, well maintained, very helpful house keeper

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8 (five adults and 3 children), the location was excellent with views of the sea from the lounge and kitchen. Good bathroom with 2 shower rooms. Beddings and other facilities were comfortable. Close to local supermarkets. Check in was easy with no hassles.

would highly recommend

The Old Post Office is situated at the harbour in Portknockie, which is an old fishing village on the coast of the Moray Firth. The area around the harbour is a conservation area and features traditional houses in North-South rows. Portknockie was voted 'Best Kept Village' several times in recent years in the 'Scotland in Bloom' competition.

• The village is ideal for cyclists and walkers who can enjoy the coastal walks along the Moray Firth and may be lucky to see the Bottlenose Dolphins. The famous Bow-Fiddle Rock, a wave-cut natural arch often teeming with Gulls and Cormorants, is a short walk from the cottage.

• All around Portknockie you will find various Whisky Trails and Castles to explore, as well as the Marine Aquarium at Macduff, the Scottish Tartan museum in Keith and the world famous Baxter's of Speyside.

• For those interested in golf, there are a number of very good courses nearby. Fishing, sea angling, scuba diving and sailing are all available nearby.

• Amenities within Portknockie include, 2 local hotels, grocers, newsagent, pharmacy, fish and chip shop, and not forgetting the children's sea paddling pool by the harbour.
