Located towards the edge of the small village of Hopeman and a short walk from its two sandy beaches, this lovely mid-terraced cottage has been furnished to a very good standard to ensure as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible. Although there is no garden at the property, there are plenty of walks or beaches to relax on nearby. Hopeman is a scenic fishing village set on the shores of the Moray Firth and attracts many visitors, mainly due to its two beaches. East and West beach, with their preserved dinosaur footprints, a Druid site and the Bramou Well, which is said to have healing properties, as well as a pretty little harbour. The village boasts a small selection of shops, a tea room and a pub with a larger selection in Elgin, Scotland’s smallest city, which is just 7 miles away.
Nearby Burghead also has a wonderful sandy beach which is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, as Burghead Bay is an ideal place to watch the large variety of birdlife as well as dolphin and whale watching. The popular coastal villages of Findhorn and Lossiemouth are a short drive away and well worth exploring. The Moray coastline is a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast with watersports, fishing, boat trips, mountain biking and so much more on the doorstep. The area also has numerous golf courses within easy reach, one within the village of Hopeman itself, approximately 15 minutes’ walk from the property. Slightly further afield, take a trip along the Speyside Malt Whisky Trail – the only one of its kind in the world. For the less energetic, sit back, relax and unwind in this lovely part of the Northern Highlands. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    May be 'dog allowed' but not 'dog friendly', we had to keep dog on lead, in house, when patio doors opened out to road. no window in front. We sat along the road on off road car park in the evening. We had brought our own deck chairs. My fault, I did not select correct filters. Lovely property , but too far to walk to beach for disabled.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thankyou for taking the time to leave feedback. The property is mid terraced with common ground to the side. We have contacted and the write up now clearly states that there is no garden with the property but plenty of walks nearby. I have now added a map in the property with possibly a more direct route to the beach as it really is only 10 minute walk if that.
