  • "This is a brilliant little cottage."

    Spotlessly clean, comfortable and with everything you need. It is tastefully decorated and linens were of good quality. It is ideally situated in the village and the garden was perfect for the dogs. We would definitely go back!

  • "This is just a charming little cottage!"

    My husband and I loved staying here with our two little dogs. It feels like it retains some of its original features but is also so comfortable with a fabulous shower and great little dressing room type area adjoining the upstairs bathroom and bedroom. The garden is sunny and it's right across from The Seafield Arms who are really doggy friendly and do amazing food. The pottery two doors down is nice to have a wander around to pick up bits and bobs. Would definitely stay here again.

About the location


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.
