Beautiful cottage
Dear Wullie and Alison, The Cottage is beautiful & everything we could have wanted was there. The location was amazing. Wullie & Alison left us a beautiful hamper upon Arrival. The hot tub was fantastic & such a bonus. The Cottage is well worth the visit as we were so comfortable & well looked after. Thank you Wullie & Alison. I hope we can visit again. With Love Ellen, Sheena & David Muir

Fabulous place to stay
We had a superb week in this wonderful holiday home and this is the best we have ever stayed in. It is immaculate and in pristine condition with everything you could ever need. In our many years of self catering we have never seen such a great welcome pack so if you are arriving late you will have tea and breakfasts readily available. The owners have clearly put a lot of thought and detail into this beautiful home and of course the hot spa was just what we needed at the end of a touring day. Never got a chance to use the log burner as the house was so warm! The scenery in the area is breathtaking and we managed to see the dolphins from Portknockie. Thank you for a fabulous holiday.

Amazing holiday rental
This is one of the best holiday rentals we have stayed in, it was fully equipped with everything needed for a perfect break. It was immaculate on arrival along with a fully loaded welcome food hamper. This is an excellent family rental with everything needed for days in, such as sonos in the main rooms, a console for the kids in the den, a warming log wood burner, and a hot tub out back. We were amazed to find bikes and golf clubs in the shed also. The kitchen is well equipped for eating in, it is also located near a great fish and chip shop and a local store. The harbour is just down the road which has amazing views of the sea. This was our second visit and definitely won't be our last.

The best holiday cottage on the coast...!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Failte. We have stayed in many cottages over the years but this one is truly the best. Everything is perfect and you could not have asked for anything more. Full equipped in every respect, from the Nespresso machine, lovely toiletries, the overflowing welcome basket and not to mention the bikes, beach chairs, wind breaks and bucket and spades in the shed. Portknockie and the Moray coast is amazing place to spend a holiday. You are never short on things to do in this wonderful corner of Scotland. We could not have asked for more! Wullie and Allison have created a holiday home that is perfect. ??and the kids just loved the hot tub! We will be back!

We had a great week. The house was a major factor in our enjoyment because it was so comfortable and well positioned. We had never visited this coast before but were blown away by its beauty and Port Knockie has some of the most stunning scenery in walking distance of the house. Our hosts made it clear that they were on hand to provide any assistance or support we required. All ran so smoothly that this was not necessary but it was lovely to know that they were there if needed.
