Summer week
We had a week in this fantastic house. The highlight for sure was dolphin spotting from the shore at bow fiddle rock. The house was spotless and had everything you could need and more. A great location for exploring the area. Great wee chippy and cafe just around the corner. Good base for coastal walks with stunning views and sunsets. Great beaches and play areas to let the kids run wild close by too. Would definitely recommend Slater's. We did suggest the water was too hot and possibly risky for kids but the owner as contacted me to say this has been remedied. All in all a perfect wee escape

Perfect !
Just spent a winter weeks holiday at this superb accommodation. Spotless, cosy and a real home from home. Chip shop to die for 2mins walk,local store 2 mins walk also. Great clifftop and beach walks not forgetting the old rail line path. Really hard to sum up so i have decided on one word...Perfect !

The perfect place to stay for a perfect holiday.
?Slaters? has been the perfect cottage for us; its warm cosiness and bright, modern interior with co-ordinating soft furnishings assuring us of a comfortable stay. Thank you for the thoughtful touches - the welcome basket of goodies, the useful fridge staples and the most comfortable of beds and linens. We are fairly frequent visitors to the area and, although we have stayed in many cottages over the years, we would put ?Slaters? up at the top of the list. We enjoyed chatting to the friendly, smiling locals out walking with their dogs and we were treated to bright sunshine on most days in spite of the low temperatures. We will definitely recommend ?Slaters? as the perfect place to stay for a perfect holiday.

Fabulous cottage made for an amazing holiday
Slaters is the perfect place to stay to explore this part of the world. Portknockie is a hidden gem, with great places to eat in the village as well as nearby in Cullen and Buckie. Don't miss fish and chips and Cullen Skink. The kids enjoyed fishing in the harbor and rock pooling on the way to the Links. We all had a great time exploring the coast, seeing dolphins and seals along the way. The cottage has kept its traditional feel and it has everything a family could need in its very well-equipped kitchen. The welcome pack was much appreciated after a long trip from the U.S. We would definitely stay again.

Absolutely brilliant!!
A lovely cottage in a lovely seaside town. We went in August, and I think things had quietened down a bit in Port Knockie, but that didn?t affect our stay. The cottage is lovely, and has everything you need. I stayed in the double bedroom downstairs, and the bed was amazing!! So comfortable. The welcome pack is a great touch, and it went down very well with the rest of my family. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and wouldn?t hesitate to book with skaters again in the future.
