Third visit has proved to be as enjoyable as previous ones. Two Bears as we remembered it - extremely relaxing and comfortable. Lots to see and do in surrounding area. Lighthouse museum well worth visiting. Lunches there are very good value for money. Watched dolphins swimming near shore at Spey Bay. Managed to fit in a visit to St Johns Church this time. Views over Gardenstown and Crovie from there were quite stunning. Appreciated milk and cake on arrival. We were sorry to have to leave such a peaceful setting but hope to return again soon.

Beautiful cottage situated in lovely quiet and peaceful village overlooking the picturesque Gamrie Bay. Very handy for cliff walks and many opportunities for observing the local wildlife. Very comfortable cottage, a welcoming place to come back to after a long day's sightseeing. Magnificent views across the water and cliffs from bedrooms, kitchen and lounge - suberb!

This is a lovely cottage set high up in the village of Gardenstown giving great views out to the sea and over the village. The cottage is set at the end of a cul de sac making it very quiet. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and has all of the mod cons expected. Plenty of on street parking and an ideal base for touring. Gardenstown, nor the cottage, are really suitable for the very infrim as it has very steep hills. The local hotel is a must visit for good food and reasonable prices.
