Purple Windows description

Aptly named, the view from the Purple Windows is over the ever changing seascape of the bay at Pennan and just a stone’s throw away from the shingle beach. The house is full of the character that typifies this village, nestling at the foot of grass covered cliffs with the sea just yards away. The cottage is just along from the local tavern and famous phone box featured in the 1983 film ’Local Hero’. An ideal seaside holiday home, the cottage is at once bright and airy yet cosy and warm - a welcoming retreat at any time of the year. Stroll along the front from the sandy and pebbly beach at one end to the quaint harbour at the other, stopping at the Pennan Inn for some refreshment. There are many good cliff walks in the area, offering the chance to enjoy the spectacular scenery, or guests can tour the surrounding area with its wealth of historic buildings and castles. Visit Macduff Marine Aquarium just a few miles west, which features the diverse marine life of the Moray Firth, while a few miles past MacDuff is historic Portsoy, known for its annual boat festival. Discover pretty churches and cottages, castles and clifftop walks, seabirds and quiet beaches all along the coast, from Aberdeen to Inverness. Golf, fishing and birdwatching are available in abundance in this magical area. Beach 50 yards. Shop 4¼ miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
