About Kate Leith

I am from nearby Aberdeen, where I live and work full time. I enjoy travelling and I have visited some wonderful places in the world and appreciate good hospitality. I hope that guests who come to The Wee House will enjoy a fantastic holiday in this little part of the world.

Kate Leith purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Kate Leith chose Pennan

I have been visiting Pennan for a number of years as my parents own a holiday home here too. I bought The Wee House in 2014 and it has been lovingly restored into a beautiful seaside home - just the right size for two people! My boyfriend travels extensively for his job so its wonderful to have a getaway just an hour away when he is in Scotland.

A petite property bursting with charm and character, lovely finishings and thoughtful guest gifts!

It’s the middle of winter and I couldn’t think of a better place to be while the waves crash spray and seaweed over the car outside. It was a perfect stay, we cooked up a storm in the kitchen, played games, read and relaxed. Thankyou Kate!

Charming, sparkling little gem of a house!!

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, this is the prettiest, most thoughtfully designed little house on earth-and the village of Pennan is so friendly and inviting-the smell of the ocean and the mesmerizing sound of the crashing waves is intoxicating-the Wee House envelops you with a coziness that cannot be described but must be experienced-thank you, Kate!!

Quaint, cozy, cute and everything you need in a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

When we walked in it was everything we had seen and imagined from the website. All the facilities where in good working order. The bed was comfy and warm. The house was very warm once the wood burning fire was roaring. The bathroom was small but had everything u needed, including a bath, when you stay you'll see what I mean.

The pub (Pennan inn) does great food and good portion sizes and it's about 20 steps away.

There nothing I can fault with The Wee House in Pennan, I suggest you go and stay xxx
