Visitors Book (historic information)

bookWoodston Fishing Station closed during 2009 and was then refurbished during 2014, then re launched as both B&B or Self Catering Accommodation. Woodston Fishing Station closed during 2015. A major refurbishment has been ongoing for the last two years and plans to re-open / are scheduled for 2019.

Prior Woodston Fishing Station had been included in the Dorling Kindersley ‘Eyewitness Top 10 Travel guide for Scotland’. As such we thought that it would also be a good idea to provide an insight into ‘our’ visitors book & share the comments that our guests have provided historically.

Self Catering Cottage – Bothy

Opened 18th May 2002

Thoroughly enjoyed being the first occupants of this lovely cottage

A wealth of old world charm & appeal. Superb netting & views

Superb ambience with stunning views throughout

What an idyllic situation, even the sea mist is entrancing. Gary & Wendy have wrought wonders to create a real sense of place.

It is as simple as it has to be but delirious rich impressive. We will never forget. Breakfast was extraordinary. We think Wendy & Gary took the right ticket in their gamble.

What a terrific place, cliff-top sun trap, slight breeze, no midges. Gary & Wendy have done a great job to make this something special

We have never stayed in a cottage like this, very nice

We looked forward to staying in this fishermans bothy & really enjoyed it

This was our second visit & we really enjoyed it again. The Bothy is brilliant for us with the children. I would recommend barbequing regardless of the weather. The views are something!

Thank you we have all had a brilliant time & the Bothy is so cool. We all look forward to the next time

Hello Gazza & Wendy. Thanks for a great holiday. We all had a fantastic time & can’t wait to come back. Cheers for taking us on the quad.

Allo Gazza, Allo Wendy! Thank you for a wicked holiday we all really enjoyed it! The Bothy is lovely & our double bed soooo comfy!! I’m looking forward to coming up again.

It’s the best holiday we have ever had. Weather fantastic, the Bothy – Can’t find enough words to describe it (great an understatement) Can’t wait to return

Dear Wendy & Gary, thank you for your hospitality, beautiful view, great accommodation, I’ve had a great time. Hate to leave.

Fantastic place – Stunning. Gary works so hard!

Wicked weekend at the Phoenix nights. Love ya Wendy, jury’s still out on Gary!!

To Basil Faulty & Wendy thanks for a great weekend at hotel Paradiso

Dear Wendy & Gary – You’ve found a little piece of paradise on the N.E of Scotland, thank you for sharing it with us. We had a truly wonderful weekend, even the weather was special, we look forward to coming back!

We came, we saw, we felt, we heard, we’ll be back!

Thanks for your vision! Champagne on the patio, at midnight, under a starry sky. “Beat That”

Enjoyed our stay only wished it could have been longer, I think we’ll come back

After a really tough 6 months, good food, spectacular views & lots of wine was just what the doctor ordered. Thanks for everything xx

What can we say – Unique!

Great week, weather good. Coming back in August. The sad news is we won’t be staying here. We are moving here!!!

This house is a dream

A remarkable, unique Scottish experience. Would love to have stayed longer but impossible. More of Scotland beckons on this once in a lifetime trip from ‘down under’ but shall never forget this place & the hospitality shown. Thank you Wendy & Gary

In a word stunning! Thank you!

We walked here. Oban to Montrose and found this retreat to rest our weary toes, Gary & Wendy have worked a wonder to convert this Bothy insides asunder now a peaceful haven overlooking the sea, a place we always want to be, a special thank you from our heart, we are sorry that now we part, but we will return another day. For this is a special place to stay xx

Another great week again in this wonderful setting. Plus Dolphins.

Wonderful holiday, we too saw the dolphins, what a thrill.

We had the great pleasure of staying in the bothy for two weeks, this was our second visit. Fell in love with this beautiful place. Don’t want to leave

Wonderful walks, Outrageously stunning views, On a par with heaven, Delightful dolphins, Super accommodation, Terrific wildlife, Overall fantastic, Not to be missed. See you again xx

Still two and a half weeks to go on our vacation, but we already know this will be the highlight of our trip! Thank you for everything!

One night was not enough. Spectacular!

It is very rare that the reality of a dream vacation is better than you dream. What you two created here with so much work & care is gorgeous. The setting is beautiful & we totally “chilled out”. Only regret we have to leave. We will be back. A big thanks for everything.

I was with my friends the Woody’s in the river and we went skinny dipping with the eels and salmon! We made cool pea-shooters out of cowslick with my new penknife. Thanks G and W, we really enjoyed our stay and Jake and I caught a lot of little fish on the beach. We saw a lot of beautiful coloured jelly fish and we had a ride on a tractor down to the nets with the woods and Jo had a hole in her wellies! We swam in the Esk and it was very cold. We got clay out of the river and made pots and fired them in the sun. We really love it here. Thank you Gary & Wendy.

Almost the best weather ever! There have been no sightings of dolphins but the seal & one stoat came to visit us! This is our magic place and all our needs well provided for by Gary & Wendy. We’ll be back again & again! P.S success!! Dolphins as we wait for the taxi !

Gary & Wendy – you have done a fantastic job in making this a magical place. We had fun despite the lack of Salmon. We will be back next year. Many thanks.

It was a fantastic place. Thank you!

All of us from the Bosque country, all of us looking for a special summer, all of us looking for love, wild spirit, wild experiences. Always’s together and of course, the place, stunning!!

Didn’t think it could get any better but it has – can’t wait until next year. As Ryan put it “there’s one thing about Gary & Wendy – they do a good job” See you next August xxx

”Ye ken thae woodston fisher folk, Hid legs like tree trunks it’s no joke, Fae troggin up thow blxxdy path, Ave done it Masel – No dinnae laugh, Ma legs were achin, Heart woz poundin, A sorry state that I wis found in, Just a soggy heap wi a sweat smell, Noo awa tae the beach an try it yersel!


A wonderful holiday with everything we needed – I’m now awa ta bide awa!! You deserve an Olympic gold, all the best.

This is a special place! So happy to come upon it. Thank you!

A very happy few days. Thank you

A thoroughly enjoyable time, we will be back! Xx

The bothy is unique & so comfortable, food delicious & weather excellent. What a lovely way to celebrate our Golden wedding. Thanks Gary & Wendy for all your kindness.

No dolphins here unfortunately but we did get an excellent siting of a family / pod fro whigs vault at Dunnottar castle, also saw seals in Montrose basin at low tide. Plenty to visit hereabouts, but why bother when you can ‘slob about’ in goodly fashion right here!! If you are on a lower budget… to Gary cos he has something cheaper down on the beach!! Weather was maybe just too good – desperately wanted at least one howling gale. A real find, would come back; our thanks

A lovely Christmas thanks to Gary & Wendy, preparation & welcome, Molly Gummings beach café at Stonhaven, The Cutty Sark at Inverbervie and overall the wonderful location.
