Excellent touring base
This cosy traditional semi detached fisherman’s cottage is tucked away in the corner of a quiet side street in the fishing town of Macduff.

The rear of the house offers partial sea views and there is a steep terraced rear garden with a patio for sitting out on sunny afternoons.
Macduff has its history steeped in fishing and boasts an aquarium showcasing the marine life found in these parts.

Customer Reviews of Bryn Awel, Macduff - Sleeps 4
1st comment: Very comfortable once warmed up. Not much in macduff but central for exploring the coast and venturing inland. Nearby Duff house and grounds well worth a visit. Best fish and chips Pennan. Suggest spare bed linen be made available. Findhorn and Findochty both very pretty. April 2012.
2nd comment: Bryn Awel was comfortable, cosy, and welcoming - as was the welcome basket! Good views from the kitchen and garden, over the shipyard to the sea. Excellent Fish & Chip shop close by, and very good Chinese takeaway also close-by (can see it from the kitchen). Macduff is a interesting little town, situated in a delightful part of Scotland, with lovely countryside and wonderful coastline. Would recommend Bryn Awel, Macduff, and Aberdeen/Moray. May 2011.
3rd comment: The cottage had everything we needed, the shower was above average. The location was in a quiet street and the views from the kitchen were good of the sea.
