Puffin Cottage is a cosy former fisherman's cottage full of original features and character, with open fire, original wood panel walls and ceiling beams. The cottage it is nestled rests at the foot of grass-covered cliffs with the sea just yards away in the village of Pennan, made famous by the film Local Hero.

The space
The cottage is bursting with character, and is particularly homely with numerous paintings, historical artifacts, overflowing book shelves and various games and DVDs

The accommodation comprises an open plan living, dining and kitchen area with open fire on the ground floor. The kitchen is small but functional with everything you should need (no dishwasher)

For the fire we have left fuel to get you started. If needed additional Logs and coal are available to buy from local petrol stations in Fraserburgh, Banff or Macduff.

There is also a shower room and toilet on the ground floor.

Upstairs, the main double bedroom has an electric stove, wood panel walls and TV, and is made complete with a chandelier! There is also a single bedroom.

There are further stairs up to a loft space, however we currently use this space for storage.

There is wifi and the TV has netflix.

In the shed outside there is a washing machine and tumble dryer, there is also a second outside toilet.

There is a table and chairs outside in the alley and a further table and chairs on the sea front in the summer (although we store this in the winter to stop it getting washed away!)

There is plenty parking on the street

Where you’ll be

Pennan, Scotland, United Kingdom

The village is situated half way between Fraserburgh and Banff, both have good supermarkets, and Tesco delivers! The closest small shop is New Aberdour (3 miles).

The cottage is only a few feet from the sea, where we often see a variety of seabirds, seals and dolphins with occasional sightings of minke whale.

There are lovely walks all around with a path from the village over the cliffs to New Aberdour.
Other key attractions include:
Troop Head RSPB reserve (the only UK mainland
nesting gannet colony (incredible in the summer months)
Cullykhan Bay - lovely for swimming
Millshore - can walk from Pennan at low tide over the rocks - pottery, coffee and ice cream
Crovie and Gardenstown - fishing villages with a lovely sea walk between the two
Fraserburgh Beach - sandy and good surfing
Banff Beach and Sandend Beach offering surf and SUP lessons
Macduff - marine aquarium
Portsoy - lovely harbour and famous ice cream shop
Findlater Castle and Sunnyside beach
Cullen - full of quirky shops and lovely beach
Bow fiddle rock - meant to be a great spot for wild swimming (when the weather is good!)
