  • "It was a lovely little cottage to stay in, quite deceiving from the outside, as quite large inside."

    It was warm and cosy and convenient for visiting my daughter who lives in Alvah. We would definitely visit the cottage again. We visited the seafield Arms 3 nights for drinks and once for food. The food was excellent and great choice of beers. Very helpful and friendly pub. We bought from the deli at the premier shop which was very nice, all within a few minutes walk from the cottage. The tin opener didn’t work so I had to ask a neighbour to open 2 tins of tuna for me. She was very obliging. We could only find 1 mirror in the bathroom, I would suggest maybe some mirrors in the bedrooms. Another benefit would be a mirror over the sink in bathroom as my husband struggled to bend down to use the small shaving mirror. Another benefit would be bath sheets in the bathroom as we are all tall people. The kitchen was stocked with useful condiments if needed.

    Doggy towels and throws for the sofa ensure your pet also has a home from home stay. Would definitely stay again

    Spotless and very comfortable. Had everything we needed and more. The little extras such as dog towels, throws and lots more made it exceptional for us. Beautiful area right on the coast.

    Local shop is brilliant and has everything you could need, local pub 2 mins from shop very friendly and they do food. The cottage is warm, the mattress is sooo good (never commented on mattress before) slept really well it is so quiet at night. Long walk down to Banff along the coast path really good did miles every day and there is a lovely beach. As an intro to the n. east coast of Scotland I love it will be back❤️

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    The beds were extremely comfortable. It had everything we needed for our family holiday and was in a great location for lots of exploring! Lots of coastal walks, harbors, fresh air and ice-cream to be had. Our son particularly enjoyed the local park with a fantastic play fishing boat. We would recommend it at as great base for a family holiday.

    The view from the window overlooking the sea was mesmerising and the sunsets stunning. This is such a comfortable place to stay. It was warm and cosy. We wanted for nothing. The local residents were smiley and friendly and there is a pottery in the village which is very special. This is a place to relax and forget about the stresses of life. Having a 9am check out was a bit of a rush but we would love to stay here again. Thank you.

    Lovely quiet location with couple of minutes walk to the marina. Only small drawback no mirrors in rooms, only mirror available was on bathroom cabinet so awkward for drying hair (3 females on holiday!!) and husband found it awkward for shaving as cabinet wasn't near the sink.

  • "A nicely appointed cottage in a surprisingly quiet location (hardly anyone about, little traffic, plentiful public parking etc) with a nice outlook to the sea."

    Less than a minute to be at the water’s edge and a nice walk along the coast towards Banff. Circa 15 minute walk around coast to a very well equipped playground and sandy beach if you’re with children. Village is quiet and has a pub doing interesting local meals, a useful little shop for all your immediate needs and a nice fish and chip cafe with takeaway. Staying mid-May the light is still with you towards 10pm and some interesting bird life can often be seen around and about. I would happily recommend staying here for a peaceful and stress-free experience if that’s what you are looking for. David

    The area is so peaceful it was the perfect escape. Really well equipped kitchen. Really clean property. My daughter and I struggled a bit though as the mattresses were memory foam...for many this is great...for us it just meant we were too warm and not firm enough. Three bedrooms is great but worth noting the third bedroom is very small and has the slope of the roof over your head. Owner is great and communicated really well...thank you!!

The property

Once a fisherman's cottage, you can now use 28 Low Shore as your harbourside retreat on the coast of Scotland, with the delights of Whitehills village right on your doorstep.

The property enjoys a well-presented interior with flashes of modernity and colour, making it the perfect escape for families seeking an action-packed break from it all.

Enter this welcoming stone cottage and on your right sits the alluring sitting room, brought to life by vibrant seating and artwork, offering a TV and electric fire for your evening entertainment.

The budding chef of the group can use the slick, modern fixtures and fittings in the kitchen to cook up a storm for the family, to be enjoyed in the well-presented dining room down the corridor.

The ground floor is complete with a brightly tiled family bathroom, giving you the option of a bath or shower over to freshen up each morning.

Discover three immaculate bedrooms on the first floor, offering a range of setups to welcome groups of all kinds.

Sumptuous furniture and warming colour schemes help to create the perfect spot to catch your rest after each fun-filled day.

Experience the refreshing sea breeze and stunning views right from your front door, then take a stroll into the village to reveal an assortment of charming local pubs and shops.

A wider range of amenities can be found just a few miles along the coast in Banff, or perhaps head to Portsoy in the other direction.

The Speyside Whisky Trail is within simple reach, being one of Scotland's most popular attractions, it is certainly worth a day out!

Experience Scotland in all its glory from this heart-warming, well-located holiday cottage.
