The Property

A charming, detached, stone fisherman's cottage ideally situated beside the sea in the friendly Aberdeenshire village of Whitehills, on the north east coast of Scotland. Set solely over the ground floor, this cosy and comfortable Whitehills cottage would be ideal for couples wishing to explore this fabulous coastal location and all the excellent facilities that this delightful village has to offer. Bright and airy, this Whitehills cottage has a double bedroom with lots of storage space so you can really make yourself at home, and the convenience of a family bathroom being just next door. The open plan living space in this Whitehills cottage consists of a well-equipped kitchen plus a sitting and dining area boasting a high, beamed ceiling and a window looking out to sea. Situated to the side of this homely Whitehills cottage is a small and very private seating area. A real sun trap, it is the perfect place for a pre-dinner glass of wine before taking a short stroll to the marina, and the highly regarded café and fish restaurant, The Galley Whitehills. Whitehills has a popular local walk, developed by the community, showcasing interpretation boards featuring photographs of Whitehills in days gone by, a must for those wanting to embrace the fresh sea air and learn a little more about the village. Just a couple of miles from Whitehills, and well-worth a visit, is Boyndie, once home to RAF Banff Strike Wing which played a pivotal role during World War II. Although the airfield closed in 1946, many of the original buildings remain. Practise your swing at the Duff House Royal Golf Club, a beautiful parkland course located by the sea, or pull on your walking boots and spend your days exploring the stunning landscapes of this magnificent region. There are so many small villages peppered along this breathtaking coastline, each as wonderful as the next and harbouring their own history, but none more so than Pennan. Once used as a backdrop to the 1980's movie 'Local Hero', the red telephone box is now a listed building! Discover the delights of this magnificent region from the comfort of this lovely Whitehills cottage, for a simply perfect holiday.

About the location

WHITEHILLS

Banff 3 miles; Portsoy 5 miles.

Whitehills is just one of the many atmospheric fishing villages dotted along the stunning north east coastline of Scotland. The village boasts a friendly local pub serving good food and a highly-regarded restaurant at the marina, as well as a grocer’s and a fish shop. The modern marina in the village is a busy destination for boats, especially yachts and pleasure crafts. Conveniently placed just three miles from Banff and five miles from Portsoy, this location has much to offer visitors who will enjoy following the rugged coastline that borders the shores of the Moray Firth, and away from the coast, the area is a mixture of rich farmlands and small hamlets surrounded by luscious green fields - a wonderful base for exploring this part of Scotland.
