We’ll have everything ready for you in our ground floor apartment, all of which is yours for your whole stay. Gourdon is a peaceful and friendly fishing village, with a shop, pub and fantastic fish restaurant. Venturing out, Gourdon is the perfect base to explore the coasts and mountains, history, castles, food and culture of Aberdeenshire.
