Cairness Lodge

Self Catering

Cairness House, Lonmay, Fraserburgh, AB43 8XP

    Two-bedroom holiday cottage in a quiet rural location.

    If you're on the lookout for something completely different in the way of holiday accommodation, have you ever considered staying in an inkwell?  No, thought not, but here's your chance!

    'The Inkwells' is the nickname given to the Gate Lodges at Cairness, on a quiet country road a couple of miles inland from the Aberdeenshire coast between Peterhead and Fraserburgh.

    Cairness Lodge was a ruin until 10 years ago when it was beautifully restored as a high spec holiday cottage, which provides a taste of gracious living on a manageable scale.  The elegant open plan living area has an open fire and French doors accessing a patio area and there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms.  The twin bedroom is small and only suitable for one adult or two children.  Outside, there is off-road parking for up to two cars and a secluded garden area.

    There are several good golf courses within a very short drive of the Lodge while extensive beaches at St. Comb's and at Rattray can be reached within 5 minutes.  

    The RSPB reserve at Strathbeg is also close by.  This is Britain's largest dune loch where all manner of waders, wildfowl, raptors etc may be seen.  It is however perhaps best known for the huge flocks of wintering geese, ducks and swans which fly in, from September onwards, among them 20% of the entire world population of pink-footed geese - a truly unforgettable sight.
