‘Nothing as advertised. No welcome pack. Washing machine broken. No lock on upstairs toilet door. Downstairs toilet door jams and has to be forced open from the outside. No view. Dark dingy and outdated. Outside area very small square overgrown and no furniture as advertised. Not great if your taking a dog.’

‘This property has such potential but suffers seriously from a lack of maintenance and management attention. First, the outside desperately needs refurbishment. Outdoor walls are cracking and disintegrating. Large chunks of the rendering are gone. Outside paint is tired stained and worn. The garage door, which cannot be used, is completely rusty. Note there is no on site parking but the garage, filled with what can only be described as junk, is unusable. Inside, the cottage is disappointing in many ways. 1. The dishwasher was broken and had been sitting for at least three weeks (documented in the visitor book) with water inside. 2. The microwave hadn’t been working for several weeks. One day during our stay, a new microwave in a box was delivered to the front entry, with no note. We chose to leave it there, untouched. 3. Basic needs that would have been expected, were not provided. No toilet tissue, no paper kitchen rolls, no laundry detergent. (There were dishwasher tablets for the dishwasher that didn’t work.) There was no welcome pack, as advertised. 4. There were no towels in the bathrooms. We finally found some old, faded, mismatched towels in a messy closet in the upstairs hallway. We assumed they were clean. 5. There was no obvious information about the property, not even a note with the wifi network and password. We finally found a binder on a shelf under the TV that contained some information. 6. The lounge furniture is basically unusable. Old, worn, faded and so low to the floor and uncomfortable that we never sat there. There were a few other irritants, like a broken shower hose that sprayed water in all directions, but the real disappointment was that the cottage has the potential to be quite nice but is not in a condition at present to be rented. We urge the owner to make all the needed improvements or take it off the rental market.’

‘Sandy Brae Cottage is a lovely fishers cottage in the small town of Findochty. There is a small beach a minute walk away. The village only has one pub, didn't eat there but the guy behind the bar was very friendly and very helpful. The kitchen was very well equipped and had a lovely big table to eat and and sit around. The living room was fine for 4 people but needs extra seating if there were more. Comfortable room. The cottage has one double, and 2 twin rooms. Most of the beds could do with a new mattresses. The double room was spacious even with a cot in it. One of the twin rooms was very big and had views of the sea. There was a lack of mirrors beside sockets. Two bathrooms were of a good size but the downstairs one could do with some attention. The cottage has a great heating system and was warm. We all really enjoyed it and would come again.’

‘Unfortunately our stay at Sandy Braes was cut shirt by horrible weather. The cottage was fine although in some parts it could do with a wee tidy up. One thing to beware of is low ceilings I banged my head twice before I saw the sign ! Lovely wee village with a pub that does good food and a shop as well and not to far from Elgin.’

‘I sometimes think that having dogs can be a drawback as cottages are not always clean. Sandy Brae was tired but clean. I was surprised there was not a welcome pack as the shop was not obvious but l did like the idea of having an emergency food larder. The owners have done a great job in addressing any complaints and comments mentioned in the book. My final comment is you get what you pay for but the important aspect about Sandy Brae was the owners have addressed what is important, home from home and this worked beautifully. Thank you.’
