The Banffshire Coast - Scotland's Dolphin Coast

The Banffshire Coast – a place of undisturbed natural beauty where dolphins, gannets, porpoises, puffins, and the occasional whale, make their home.

And who would blame them when Banffshire has such an unspoilt environment on the land, in the sea and in the air?

You’ll find our coastline dotted with fishing villages which have remained remarkably well preserved and which have resisted the advances of too much modern development.

Our coastline is dramatic and breathtaking but very accessible and safe with many waymarked cliff top walks. And, there are our special beaches where you may be alone, but never lonely as there’s always the chance to spot the dolphins at play or the gannets fishing for lunch.

The air is ozone-fresh and the light, which has attracted many artists to live and work here, has a luminescent quality which is hard to define but stays in the memory.
