Converted from a local bank, this property is ideally located for a peaceful break in Aberdeenshire.

This unusual holiday property has been imaginatively converted from the local bank to extremely good effect. It features a wonderful spiral staircase which ascends from the bright, airy living room to the master bedroom. Set in the heart of the quiet traditional fishing village of Whitehills, visitors can easily walk down to the quaint harbour and marina, where locally caught fish can be bought. A walk along the rocky shoreline towards Boyndie Bay with views towards Banff makes an enjoyable afternoon, or visit the villages of Crovie and Pennan (of Local Hero fame), which cling to the rocky coastline further to the east. The Moray Firth is known for its mild climate, lovely sandy beaches and dolphin sightings. Shop 10 yards.

Living room/dining room with electric woodburner, rugs on wooden floor and spiral staircase. Galley-style kitchen with wooden floor. Utility. Double bedroom. Shower room with double power shower and toilet. Open-tread, spiral stairs to first floor: Double bedroom.

We enjoyed our time spent at The Aul Bank - having been a cashier in a bank for many years I immediately felt comfortable and interested in the building. It is near local shops and a lovely pub/restaurant where we enjoyed an evening meal. It is within walking distance to the sea where you can enjoy lovely walks. The host met us at the property to explain anything we needed to know and was at the end of the phone should a problem occur.

A beautiful interesting house (well it used to be a bank ...) with everything you need. Very spacious and bright and there are countless brochures and books about the area - there is so much to do and see. A lovely restaurant by the harbour and fantastic walks you can do to in the area. Lots to explore by car: Castles, ruins, mansions, fishing villages, Aberdeen etc. The landscape and serenity is wonderful. The owner of the place was extremely welcoming and the communication prior to the arrival was great. Highly recommended.
