The Banffshire Coast - Scotland's Dolphin Coast

The Banffshire Coast - breathtakingly beautiful and unspoilt – where dramatic coastal scenery merges seamlessly with tranquil green woodlands, pastel-coloured cottages perch happily next to exquisite Georgian townhouses, and seabirds swoop above long, sandy beaches watching dolphins leaping in and out of the waves.

Here you can spend your days falling under the spell of our charming coastal villages and harbours, exploring castles and historic homes, and learning how our ancestors lived in years gone by. You can raise a glass to our locally produced malt whisky, give our world-class ice cream producers the taste test, and enjoy the fine seafood that we export all over the globe – or learn how to surf, see a dolphin up-close and celebrate our heritage and music traditions at one of our great festivals.

Come and stay – we have accommodation to suit everyone – from the quirky to the quaint.

But, most of all, enjoy making memories that will last a lifetime.
