About Rosemount Hotel
Built in 1890, this stunning Victorian Townhouse overlooks the Moray Firth, at the very start of the Speyside Way.
Originally named “Rock House” it was predominantly used as a Doctor’s Surgery and residence.
In 1969 there is reference to “extensive alterations” whilst under the ownership of the Shipwrecked Fishermen and Mariners Royal Benevolent Society for the purpose of providing board and lodging accommodation for “lonely old people at a modest cost”
In the early 1970’s, the house, having returned to being a private dwelling, was renamed as “Rosemount” whilst under the ownership of a local Skipper, Gordon McKay after his vessel of the same name which was built in the local ship yard (Port Registration: BCK 277)
The Rosemount of today has been operating as a Guesthouse / Hotel for well over twenty years and we can currently offer eight rooms, some of which have en-suite facilities. Our hearty breakfasts are cooked fresh to order using local produce, including vegetarian options, wherever possible and we can also offer packed lunches and evening meals if booked in advance.
Our eight bedrooms are currently configured as follows:
First Floor – 1 x double, en-suite room / 1 x twin / double en-suite room / 1 x twin room with private bathroom (shower over spa bath) on landing / 1 superior en-suite room with spa bath (can be twin or double)
Second Floor – 1 x family room (can be 1 double and 1 single bed or three single beds) with shared bathroom / 1 x twin / double room with shared bathroom / 2 x single rooms with shared bathroom
All of our rooms have flat screen TV’s with freeview
Free wi-fi is available in all of our rooms.
Rosemount is also the home of Moray Koi - Scotland's finest supplier of Japanese and Polish bred Koi and all associated pond / aquarium equipment.
We welcome guests to the hotel to see the Koi in our six show ponds and will soon be upgrading the garden to a Japanese theme which guests will be welcome to enjoy.
Below are some images of our Koi and facility
Here in Buckie, we are very fortunate to be able to see the Northern Lights frequently throughout the year - back in February 2016, we even saw them from the front doorstep of Rosemount with the naked eye which was remarkable given the amount of street lights in the vicinty! Below are a selection of pictures which have been taken in and around the area - some favourite places for the best views are Cullen, Buckpool, Clochan and Strathlene, all of which are very close to Buckie.
