Dolphin Cottage Whitehills Aberdeenshire With one of the best locations right on the shore front Dolphin cottage offers stunning views out across the Moray Firth.
Dolphin Cottage 30 Low Shore, Whitehills is a typical North East Scottish fisherman's cottage dating back to 1880. Dolphin Cottage almost sits on the beach on the edge of the sea. It offers stunning views of the Moray Firth and Banffshire coast not to mention the passing wildlife of dolphins, seals and whales.
There are two comfortable sitting rooms in the cottage The first is the lounge. This room has plenty of comfortable seating with two sofas and a tartan fireside chair. This is a perfect room to relax by the fire. The large HD television sits above the fireplace. The plain blue sofa here can be pulled out as a double bed allowing Dolphin Cottage to accommodate two more people if required.
The Dining / Kitchen
The kitchen was completely redesigned in 2014. There are modern handmade free standing units perfectly complimented by antique furniture that is the same age as the cottage. There is a modern electric range cooker, a pretty cream coloured fridge, a washer/dryer, a dish washer, a microwave and toaster. The cupboards are well equipped with crockery, cutlery and pots and pans. A handmade kitchen table sits by the window and is complemented perfectly by the Victorian kitchen chairs.

Dolphin Watching Room
We call the second sitting room “The Dolphin Watching Room” since it has unsurpassed sea views and dolphins are often seen passing by. This room has three large windows looking straight out to sea. There is a stylish tartan sofa as well as further comfortable seating all facing towards the spectacular sea views. On the darker nights it would be possible to see the northern lights (Aurora Borealis) from these windows or from the large roof windows. Of course if the sea, wildlife and Northern Lights are not enough there is also an additional wall mounted HD television to look at!
