Buchan Ness lighthouse,"Skerry Cottage"

Skerry cottage is a beautifully renovated lighthousekeeper's cottage at the base of Buchan ness lighthouse, the most north-easterly point in Scotland.

Buchan Ness lighthouse was built by Robert Stevenson, and is one of the few remaining working lighthouses in Scotland.

Skerry cottage has a bright ,airy galley kitchen, with cooker, grill, fridge, microwave, and coffee- maker.The kitchen table seats 4 comfortably.Great place to sit out and have your morning coffee, and also to sit in the evening, with perhaps a glass of wine, to watch the lighthouse beams revolving slowly above your head.

The kitchen door leads onto a decking area which faces east, where the sun rises over the sea and rocks.

There are two bedrooms, one double with king- size bed, the second with two single beds.

The cottage has full central heating, with the optional addition of an open fire in the living room,

All bedding and towels are provided.

Skerry Cottage was in bad repair when we started to renovate it three years ago. but we kept as many of the original features as we could- Like the original shutters, doors and beautiful pitch pine floors in both bedrooms.

The setting is very peaceful and quiet, but is just a short walk across the bridge from the village of Boddam .

Within 40 mins. drive from Aberdeen airport.

We are within a short distance from many world famous links golf courses, and this is also a great area for birdwatching, and marine wildlife like seals, dolphins and porpoises.

Very Good


Reviewed 12 Apr 2011

this was our 7th visit in 2 years so that speaks for itself.Everything about the place is great. The cottage is really lovely and it has everything you need.Sheila makes you very welcome and is very friendly.We spend lots of time watching the ships passing up and down the sea also watching the seals when they appear. The whole experience is very relaxing although there is plenty to do and see. If you go here for a holiday I am sure you would soon return. i know we will.

it's a wonderfull experience. it's very romantic place, the sea in winter is incredible and very strong. people of scotland are hot and funny. the lighthouse is very clean and confortable. i think that is a very inusual experience you must do with a special person. Relax and silence are the queens of this wonderfull place

“A tranquil getaway”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2011

The best thing about the cottage is the attentive one-on-one service offered by the owner, Sheila. She is friendly, helpful and makes you feel at home. The cottage is adorable and has everything you need. It is relaxing and feels like home right away. The location is close to the village but separated by a bridge so no traffic noise. The only sounds are from the waves and the gulls. The feeling of seclusion combined with everything else makes for a great night's sleep. My only wish would be to have huge windows on all sides without destroying the authenticity of the building.

“Beautiful location, wonderful accomodation, first class service”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2011

We stayed for a long weekend at Buchaness Lighthouse Cottages. The booking process was personal, fast and simple - exactly as it should be. Sheila was quick to respond to any questions I had about the cottage and pass on information about the local area. Checking in was a breeze, Sheila was on hand to show us around and answer any questions. The cottage itself was beautiful, fantastic kitchen with all facilities you would ever require, a cosy living room with a ready to light coal fire, tv, comfy chairs and a window seat overlooking the sea with high powered binoculars! The bedrooms were a delight, the beds oh so comfy, the bathroom was excellent, big bath, rainfall shower head, heated towel rail and plenty of quality cleaning products. There were additional little touches that make a difference - chocolate lighthouses on our beds, fresh flowers, fishing rods we could use, books on local history, guides on things to do, tea, coffee and milk to get us going. I cannot recommend this place highly enough - stunning coastal views, amazing walks around the rocks, peace and quiet, total relaxation, the coast line to the north is some of the most stunning you would see anywhere in the world. My only gripe was having to leave! In fact Sheila was on hand to wish us goodbye and was even good enough to give me a book on lighhouse accomodation free of charge on learning of my interest in staying in them. Congratulations Sheila, we will be back again very soon!
