We have tried to provide everything that our guests will require to have a fabulous holiday in Scotland.

Why the Owner Chose Pennan, Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, UK:
Pennan is one of the prettiest coastal villages in Scotland.It is situated on the Banffshire coast which is a real 'hidden gem' .The whole coastline is dotted with lovely villages in spectacular settings,there are interesting historical towns such as Banff and Portsoy.The birdwatching and wildlife are world famous.Being based in Pennan means you can easily drive to wonderful beaches,visit ancient castles and explore the wonderful history and culture of rural Aberdeenshire.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Pennan is quaint,quiet and peaceful.The 30 or so houses all line the single street and everyone knows each other.When you come out of the front door you are right on the harbourside and next to the pebbled beach. You can sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the fantastic sunsets.When it`s cold outside you can curl up in front of the fire and listen to the waves.
