Ideal for a fishing holiday, The Montcoffer beat is on the Lower River Deveron, a very prolific salmon river that is without doubt one of the top five in Scotland.

Ideal Scottish Highland Holiday Location

It's location in the Scottish Highlands makes Montcoffer the ideal location from which to base the ideal 'Scottish Experince' holiday.  Perfect for groups and families, there are many visitor attractions, cultural and historic buildings and sites rich in Scottish history.  The nearby coast offers unique opportunities to see marine wildlife and and 'nature in action'. Add to this the natural beauty and stunning scenery, Montcoffer is the perfect Highland holiday location.

The Banffshire coast enjoys its own special micro-climate, the influence of the North Atlantic drift on the coastal waters, and the shelter provided by the Grampian Mountains, has a mellowing effect on the local climate, resulting in it being milder and drier than neighbouring areas.

Our stunning coastline is a haven for wildlife, with colonies of gannets and the coast is one of the most important areas in the UK for observing dolphins and whales.

The coast acts as a magnet for artists and photographers, who are drawn by the ever changing landscape.

There are long beautiful sandy beaches, majestic cliffs with secluded cove beaches.

Banff and Macduff are two towns separated by the River Deveron valley and are linked by the beautiful 7-arch bridge which crosses the river at its estuary, flowing out into the Moray Firth.

Both town have populations of around 4,000 and enjoy spectacular sea views, magnificent sunsets and the cleanest of sea air.

Banff has a history visible in its architecture. By contrast, Macduff reflects a maritime heritage.

The magnificent Duff House, which acts as an outstation for the Natural Gallery of Scotland regularly holds art exhibitions and sits beautifully overlooking the fantastic Duff House Royal Golf Club.

The area is a paradise for golfers and anglers with championship parkland courses, famous links courses and lots of courses which the novice would really enjoy, and the stunning salmon rivers of the Deveron, Dee, Spey and Findhorn.

Try Banff for 18th and 19th century town houses of prosperous merchants and landowners, or the stunning fishing villages of Gardenstown, Crovie and Pennan, which are nestled amongst the cliffs.

Every summer, the area hosts fascinating festivals celebrating the unique maritime and musical heritage.

Eating out is primarily traditional Scottish fare, with the local fresh fish dishes a “must try”.

The world famous fish soup, “Cullen Skink”, originates from Cullen, a lovely small coastal town 15 minutes away, which is well worth a visit, for the ice-cream shop alone.

The area’s city, Aberdeen, is an easy hour away.

Aberdeen is a very prosperous international city due to it being the oil capital of Europe and has all the facilities you would expect of such a city.

Situated on the Coastal Trail, Castle Trail and near the Whisky Trail, this undiscovered part of Scotland really offers the visitor a unique experience.
