Stonehaven is only a short distance from Aberdeen but a million miles away from the hustle and bustle.  Enjoy a scenic walk to Dunnottar Castle and a harbourside drink before a great night's sleep next to the ocean.  A great way to unwind after a busy day.


Twentyfourshorehead B&B - peaceful, quiet and comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation, on the water's edge, in the historic harbour and old town area of Stonehaven.  The house was built around 1770 and was once a cooperage for the making of barrels for the local herring fleet.  It is a listed building in a conservation area.   ... from the Lonely Planet Guide:  "24 Shorehead ... Location makes all the difference, and the location of this former cooperage offering peaceful B&B accommodation can't be beat - last house at the end of the road overlooking the harbour, with lovely sea views ..."


We are for sale !

Anne has been running Twentyfourshorehead as a B&B for nearly twenty years. It has been more successful than she could have ever imagined and we have met some lovely people. She would like to retire and has some health issues that at the moment prevent her from running the business so has decided to sell.


So if you are are looking for life style change and a move to a great location this may be for you - a great four bedroom, four bathroom home with spectacular views which could be used as a family home, a home with an income or a holiday home wth huge whole house rental income potential.
