The name is absolutely accurate. Seaview Cottage occupies a commanding position on the hill above the harbour in the fishing port of Banff on the Moray coast, which is just a short walk down the grassy slope in front of the house.
This light, airy and spacious cottage has been beautifully refurbished to combine all modern advantages with traditional features such as the stripped wood and latched doors in the happiest of marriages between taste and comfort.
Banff has plentiful shops and eating places, Duff House, designed by William Adam and an outpost of the National Gallery, a museum donated by Andrew Carnegie and a fine golf course. Inland there are the delights of the Whisky Trail, many moorland walks and on the coast, magnificent beaches and sleepy fishing villages to explore.
A further advantage of the cottage is that it is accessible by public transport.
