The Renovations

 

The renovations included this replacement extension, completed in May 1999. The whole house was renovated and modernised for the 2000 season. The house dates from the late 19th Century, built as a fisherman’s cottage it has the gable end on to the sea. The loft had been used for the drying of the fisherman’s nets – we found cork floats in the eaves during the renovations. All the wooden floorboards in the main house have been sanded back and varnished. Everything in the house has been purchased new, mainly from IKEA. The lounge was the first room to be decorated – Red Watch Tartan sofas and sea theme pictures add a comfortable yet modern feel to this room. A new window created in the gable through the 2 ft thick stone walls provides sea views.

The dining room and kitchen are located in the new extension. Three sash in case windows give fantastic views to the west and north. Immediately to the west across Boyndie Bay is the village of Whitehills on the headland, Knock Head. Beyond, there are distant views across the Moray Firth towards Helmsdale, Caithness. Mountains named Morven and Scaraben are often visible although they are over 70 miles away!

As you can see the view changes by the day

 

The kitchen is newly fitted with all necessary appliances – dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, microwave, gas hob and electric oven. The condensing combination boiler is the most energy efficient available providing digitally controlled heat and hot water at any time of the day.
