The property

Silver Darlings is a traditional, detached stone cottage nestled in the centre of Whitehills, Banffshire.

With the marina just around the corner for stunning sea views, as well as easy access to more classic fishing communities along Scotland's north east coast, the cottage is an ideal getaway for a group or family of six.

Off-road parking ensures an easy arrival on the quiet, residential street where this beautiful cottage awaits.

Leave muddy boots in the porch area before stepping into a pleasant sitting room; set your snacks on the coffee table and start the electric fire for a snug movie night, with a plush corner sofa to sink into, or settle among the cushions of the inviting swivel armchair with a good book.

A self-catering cottage, you'll find excellent amenities in the kitchen/diner to prepare home-cooked meals, with seating for six guests to enjoy dinner together, as well as a handy washing machine and a coffee maker to kick-start your mornings.

All three bedrooms are beautifully finished with ample storage space for walking gear and large mirrors to get ready with ease; a ground-floor double offers two guests’ extra privacy, whilst upstairs another double and a twin are bright and airy thanks to large Velux windows.

Freshen up before bed in the nicely-appointed, contemporary bathroom with a bath for longer soaks in the bubbles, or a shower over for quick morning routines.

At the front of 1 Chapel Lane, a garden area is perfect for picnics on the lawn, whilst amenities and attractions await in Whitehills; on your doorstep, you'll find a convenience store to stock up the cupboards, a welcoming pub to take a break from cooking and a popular seafood restaurant overlooking the picturesque marina.

The busier town of Banff is a short journey east with larger supermarkets, as well as Duff House, a stunning Georgian estate hosting exhibitions and a fantastic golf course.

Cross the quaint bridge over to the neighbouring Macduff village for fish and chips along the harbour and visit Macduff Marine Aquarium.

Drive west for day in Portsoy, where budding historians can discover artefacts of the village's history, as well as a nearby hidden gem, the 16th-century ruins of Boyne Castle.

Travelling further west along the coast brings you to the ruins of Findlater Castle overlooking a small, sandy bay, with spectacular coastal walks for dramatic sea views and the idyllic Sunnyside Beach, a long stretch of sand backed by cliffs and sand dunes.

Enjoy the traditional seaside villages of Banffshire from the wonderful cottage of Silver Darlings.

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.
