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.


Great accomadation
The house was well thought about. Every item, utensil you could think about was there. Warm house, great bathrooms. Clean, comfortable and central.
Mark A

This is our seventh visit and the cottage is a real 'home from home'. Our Border Collie loved the garden and we loved the wonderful, ever changing views. Whatever the weather, we love it here and never want to leave.
Mrs Carlisle

The location and the view out to the Moray Firth is spectacular - we've been back 6 times to this cottage now - I can't recommend it highly enough - everything about it is excellent.
Mr Simpson

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
