This unique, detached, holiday property sits at the end of a tree lined drive behind the village high street on the outskirts of Portsoy. Attached to a lovely, now disused catholic chapel the property has original features including fireplaces, cornicing and panelled doors. The garden at the back overlooks Loch Soy where one can enjoy a stroll, have a picnic or even fish. Portsoy is one of the most unspoiled villages on the Moray Firth Coast, benefiting from a pleasant climate, the tail end of the gulf stream making it mild rather than cold, with less than half the rain of the west coast. In the summer months boat hire is available, allowing the opportunity of spotting dolphins, seals and other marine life. From Portsoy harbour there are walks, where some of the best cliff top views of the Moray Firth can be seen. Portsoy harbour is over 300 years old, possibly the oldest natural harbour in Europe and every year hosts the renowned Traditional Boat Festival around the end of June. Beyond Portsoy the Moray Coastal Trail covers almost the entire 50 miles of Moray’s coast, linking the settlements between Forres and Cullen. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

Customer Reviews of Chapel House, Portsoy - Sleeps 8
1st comment: A beautiful house, in an lovely location. The house is in a lovely town and the Portsoy Ice Cream is a must! Very modern decoration, the only slight grumble was it could have done with some larger pots and pans, oh and some oven gloves! March 2012.
