Property Description

We are delighted to bring to the market this traditional 12 bedroom, 10 bathroom property, situated in the heart of Peterhead.

Clifton House is steeped in history. Formerly the home of historian James Findlay, in the 1870’s it became the family home of the whaler Captain John Gray Jnr, his wife Emily and their 8 children.

Over the years the home was changed to a guest house, while still retaining the original features. Detached and set over three floors, the hotel has twelve bedrooms, seven of which have en suite shower rooms. Each floor has an additional, separate shower room. To the rear of the property, at the bottom of the car park, there is a self contained two bedroom, 1 bathroom bungalow which is ideal for owners accommodation.
