About the property

Apartment in Stonehaven, Grampian, Scotland - Bright, Stylish, Recently Modernised and Central In Historic Town

Only 80 metres from the sea and promenade, you can relax and feel at home in our stylish, recently modernised 3 bedroom listed apartment. The first floor accommodation is on two floors with bright, spacious open plan kitchen/dining /living room area and single cosy bedroom situated on the first floor. Living space/dining area provides adequate seating and the luxury of a SMART TV with Bluray/DVD player. Free wifi is also provided. Our lovingly and painstakingly restored staircase leads up to a bright, stylish twin bedroom with wall mounted TV/DVD player as well as a further attractive double bedroom with luxury bedding, tasteful decor and SMART TV. Our recently modernised bathroom offering our guests the use of complimentary products is also located on the upper floor.

No car is necessary, as soon as you walk out the front door, everything is on your doorstep – lovely local little shops in which to browse in, cafes, restaurants, banks, small supermarkets, everything you could wish for. Have a gentle stroll via the scenic route along the promenade, stopping off at Molly’s for a delicious home cooked breakfast, lunch or dinner, or pay a visit next door from Molly's to the Bay Fish and Chip shop (brilliant fresh fish and worth the wait!) You may simply want to relax with a leisurely coffee at the Waterfront Cafe offering dramatic sea views or treat yourself to afternoon tea at Arduthie House which offers delicious home baking. If you prefer sample some fine dining at one of Scotland’s best seafood restaurants, The Tolbooth (booking essential) overlooking the picturesque, historic harbour or just sit by the sea with an ice-cream from Aunt Betty’s – (toppings a must!) and soak in the atmosphere, whilst dolphin spotting. Further restaurants, cafes, bars, ice-cream shops, fish and chip shops (including the Carron famous for its deep fried Mars bars) can be found in the surrounding streets and are too numerous to mention you will just keep finding them!

For the children there is the adventure playground, teenagers the skate park and don’t forget to bring your swimming costume for a quick splash in our famous Art Deco Olympic sized heated out-door pool (summer months only) and offering midweek midnight swims. The leisure centre has an indoor pool open all year. We also have a bowling green, putting and tennis courts – there is something for everyone.

If you are feeling energetic you can walk up through Bervie Braes towards Dunnottar Castle - well worth the climb as once at the top the view on a nice day is amazing of Stonehaven Bay. A further five minute walk and passing the war memorial, you will see our iconic Dunnottar Castle in the distance a spectacular fortress ruins where you can take in the breathtaking awesome scenery, imagining life in the 15th century (Part of Hamlet was filmed here starring Mel Gibson) and a “must” visit. There is a road-train which operates in the summer months from the Market Square if you don’t feel like walking.

Stonehaven also has one of the oldest golf courses in Scotland which straddles the Highland Fault Line and offers scenic views across Stonehaven Bay towards Dunnottar (visitors welcome any time). Nearby, the sandstone cliffs of Fowlsheugh hold one of Scotland's largest sea bird colonies. View the puffins during their nesting period; a truly memorable experience.

We hope you have enjoyed reading our introduction. We are constantly asked why our prices are lower than other properties in the area; no reason other than we believe in offering value for money and we are fortunate we have very few overheads. If you would now like to know a little bit more before making a Reservation Booking please contact me through the Enquiry button. If you then decide to make a reservation, once you have paid the service fee to Owners Direct I then manage your booking personally and can provide a variety of secure payment methods.

We hope that once you have visited Stonehaven you will feel like us and want to keep coming back!

About Frances


Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.

I was born and brought up in Aberdeen 15 miles to the north of Stonehaven so over the years have had many trips to this seaside town and a lot of happy memories. Due to work I had to move away but still have many friends and relatives in this area and visit regularly. I was lucky enough to purchase this property in 2013 and still can't believe it! I love Stonehaven and hope that after your visit you too will see why.

Frances purchased this apartment in 2013

Amazing apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely adored this home away from home! Every thought was taken by Frances for comfort and ease of use, with little touches that were surprising and pleasing. The decor was lovely, her manual was very detailed, the place was clean and smelled very nice. We enjoyed the location in town, close to stores and restaurants. The parking was very easy. The location of the town itself was great for taking day trips. While in town, we also took many walks. One of our favorites was to Dunnattar Castle--definitely worth it if you can--and even found one of those rocks you paint, hide and find. The people in town were very friendly, too! I would stay here again! Highly recommend!

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

This property is first class all the way. Very comfortable, modern, and appointed with everything you need. It is truly "home away from home"! Additionally, Stonehaven is a wonderful community with a great beach and broad walk; excellent and affordable food; and one of the best castles in all of Scotland within walking distance. From our perspective, this property and Stonehaven are hidden gems where you can spend time with the "real people" of Scotland and not be overrun by tourists!

La location idéale est ici chez Frances !

  • 5 of 5

Séjour du 9 au 16 Septembre 2017 à Stonehaven

Ne cherchez plus l'endroit idéal, il est ici dans l'appartement de Frances. Idéalement situé, appartement très calme, décoré avec beaucoup de goût, fonctionnel, extrêmement propre, vous ne trouverez pas mieux ! Tout est fait pour que l'on soit bien dans ce « sweet home », les attentions de la propriétaire sont vraiment touchants (petits cadeaux de bienvenue). Cerise sur le gâteau, le nécessaire avait été mis dans le frigo, pour le petit déjeuner. Du jamais vu !. Rencontre avec Frances très touchante par son intention de nous voir passer un beau séjour. Outre la beauté de l'appartement, c'est aussi l'attitude accueillante de la propriétaire que nous avons appréciée !

Stonehaven est une charmante ville au bord de la mer où rien ne manque.....même pas la pluie !!

review about our stay at allardice lets stonehaven.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful appartment close to the sea but in the middle of Stonehaven.

All facilities available, well furnished, the interiors were decorated with love by the owner

as if it was our own home.

Liitle presents everywhere and a well equipped welcome refrigerator for the tired travellers.

Frances, the owner was very friendly and explained everything to us when we arrived !

A good place to stay for 5 persons and make tours if you travel by car.

A good place to come back again!

Nous sommes une famille française et nous avons reçu un accueil exceptionnel dont les enfants et nous-mêmes nous souviendrons longtemps. Très belle maison parfaitement équipée et pleine de surprises. Très bonne situation près de la plage, de la piscine et du sentier vers Dunnottar Castle. Commerces très proches. Merci Frances pour ce merveilleux "accueil écossais" !
