3 Church Street is a traditionally built Grade B Listed fisherman’s house, built in 1897 for our family in the picturesque village of Findochty on the beautiful Moray coast of North East Scotland. Recently totally renovated but still having much traditional character, the house now has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday.

The house faces south on a quiet street in the upper part of the village, with the harbour and beaches only a few minutes’ walk away to north, east and west. The back garden gate leads to the top of the brae where you can sit and look down on the little sandy beach at Crooked Hythe, over to the rocks, cliffs and caves and across the Moray Firth - a perfect look-out for dolphin-watching. In the pretty garden there is a large furnished patio, barbecue, summerhouse and a hammock for lazy afternoons.
