  • Mr Duncan

    “Only minor gripe would the lighting in the bathroom.”

    It’s not very bright and can be difficult to see things that are bit fiddly such as contact lenses. Otherwise we were very happy with the property. Very nice to have the use of the kayak and board. We shall be returning visitors.

The property

The Lookout is a traditional cottage which has been cleverly restyled with the addition of a contemporary, glazed, full height lounge. It's quirky! The slightly elevated position of the cottage provides uninterrupted views to the harbour, the play-park immediately beyond the garden and, on a clear day, across the sea to the hills of Sutherland and Caithness - truly panoramic. Filled with interesting artwork, vibrant colours and wooden furniture, the feel of the cottage is of a luxurious and comfortable beach house with all modern conveniences. Double doors from the lounge open onto a beach garden with fire-pit and decking, enhanced with cobbles and driftwood. Enjoy the afternoon sun here, eating out or just relaxing and watching the views. At night, once dark, this is a great vantage point to see the Northern Lights, keeping warm round the fire-pit. A snug with a woodburning stove ensures a cosiness you will find hard to leave. However, venture out and the coastline has a lovely walk which follows a disused railway line and connects Hopeman to other coastal villages East and West including the fabulous beaches at Findhorn and Lossiemouth. Findhorn is just a 15 minute drive away where you will find a couple of cracking family pubs serving great seafood and there is also the Village Bakery for fabulous fresh bakes and food in general. The bakery is owned by the Findhorn Foundation (worth a visit).

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Elgin 7.3 miles; Lossiemouth 6.3 miles; Inverness 37.1 miles; Aberdeen 73 miles.

Hopeman is a scenic coastal village situated on the shores of the Moray Firth in the Northeast of Scotland. This small village attracts many visitors due to the fact it boasts two sandy beaches, East Beach and West Beach, as well as an idyllic harbour used mainly now for leisure crafts. The East Beach boasts a line of beach huts, all individually decorated, along with a small pavilion. The main street has a number of small shops and a popular tearoom but nowadays the main venue for a big shop is the town of Elgin which has 24-hour Asda and Tesco supermarkets. Elgin sits between Inverness and Aberdeen and is home to the historical Elgin Cathedral. The Moray Firth is home to many dolphins and stretches of stunning coastline with many whisky distilleries, forest walks, cycle paths and little harbours. Outside the village is the popular town of Inverness, where you can find further attractions and amenities such as Infinity Trampoline Park and Inverness Golf Club.

Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental.
