Portessie is a traditional fishing village that sits on the edge of the Moray Firth coast and if it's dramatic, unadulterated nature and landscape that you want Portessie is a great spot to rent a holiday home.

This property has been recently renovated and now has all mod cons. It's a detached stone croft building located in Portessie itself and has glorious views of the rugged landscapes from most of the windows of the house. The property is all on the ground floor and has 3 double bedrooms, 2 of which have en suite bathrooms with showers. There's another bathroom with a bath, a large open plan living/dining/sitting area and a country style kitchen with wooden units and all the appliances necessary to cook up some tasty meals – preferably using some of the incredible local produce that this region is famous for.


This was our third visit to Braehead Croft. It has large bedrooms, great panoramic views of the sea and a great outside garden area. It is central for exploring the Moray coast.
Mr Swan

Braehead Croft was a comfortable cottage, with a superb view
Mr Wilson

Very comfortable cottage . It was equipped with everything you could need, all cleaning products supplied - I. e. Dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap powder, loo rolls. Lovely uninterrupted view of the sea, This is the 5th time I have stayed here - highly reccommended

Warm comfortable. Clean. Very well equipped. Helpful owner. Fantastic views Overlooks coast . Play park for children 100 yards away Probably better to have access to a vehicle .

Braehead Croft was perfect for our needs, cleanliness was second to none. Everything you could need, perfect location and the views were outstanding.
