Only 80 metres from the sea and promenade, you can relax and feel at home in our stylish, recently modernised 3 bedroom listed apartment. The first floor accommodation is on two floors with bright, spacious open plan kitchen/dining /living room area and single cosy bedroom situated on the first floor. Living space/dining area provides adequate seating and the luxury of a SMART TV with Bluray/DVD player. Free wifi is also provided. Our lovingly and painstakingly restored staircase leads up to a bright, stylish twin bedroom with wall mounted TV/DVD player as well as a further attractive double bedroom with luxury bedding, tasteful decor and SMART TV. Our recently modernised bathroom offering our guests the use of complimentary products is also located on the upper floor.
No car is necessary, as soon as you walk out the front door, everything is on your doorstep – lovely local little shops in which to browse in, cafes, restaurants, banks, small supermarkets, everything you could wish for. Have a gentle stroll via the scenic route along the promenade, stopping off at Molly’s for a delicious home cooked breakfast, lunch or dinner, or pay a visit next door from Molly's to the Bay Fish and Chip shop (brilliant fresh fish and worth the wait!) You may simply want to relax with a leisurely coffee at the Waterfront Cafe offering dramatic sea views or treat yourself to afternoon tea at Arduthie House which offers delicious home baking. If you prefer sample some fine dining at one of Scotland’s best seafood restaurants, The Tolbooth (booking essential) overlooking the picturesque, historic harbour or just sit by the sea with an ice-cream from Aunt Betty’s – (toppings a must!) and soak in the atmosphere, whilst dolphin spotting. Further restaurants, cafes, bars, ice-cream shops, fish and chip shops (including the Carron famous for its deep fried Mars bars) can be found in the surrounding streets and are too numerous to mention you will just keep finding them!
For the children there is the adventure playground, teenagers the skate park and don’t forget to bring your swimming costume for a quick splash in our famous Art Deco Olympic sized heated out-door pool (summer months only) and offering midweek midnight swims. The leisure centre has an indoor pool open all year. We also have a bowling green, putting and tennis courts – there is something for everyone.
If you are feeling energetic you can walk up through Bervie Braes towards Dunnottar Castle - well worth the climb as once at the top the view on a nice day is amazing of Stonehaven Bay. A further five minute walk and passing the war memorial, you will see our iconic Dunnottar Castle in the distance a spectacular fortress ruins where you can take in the breathtaking awesome scenery, imagining life in the 15th century (Part of Hamlet was filmed here starring Mel Gibson) and a “must” visit. There is a road-train which operates in the summer months from the Market Square if you don’t feel like walking.
Stonehaven also has one of the oldest golf courses in Scotland which straddles the Highland Fault Line and offers scenic views across Stonehaven Bay towards Dunnottar (visitors welcome any time). Nearby, the sandstone cliffs of Fowlsheugh hold one of Scotland's largest sea bird colonies. View the puffins during their nesting period; a truly memorable experience.
