“Exceptional!”
Reviewed 21 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

What an incredible place to stay, it's a home from home!
Angus & Alvina the owners, are the most caring and helpful couple and went above and beyond to make us feel at home, they couldn't do enough.
The house itself is of an excellent quality & has everything you need, it's set in a beautiful & peaceful location. I can't recommend it enough! We will definitely be going back.

Large modern kitchen, with dining table for 6. Fully equipped kitchen with huge fridge-freezer. Bathroom, with shower, plus additional en-suite shower, and cloakroom. Utility. 2 lounges - one with TV. 3 bedrooms (1 downstairs single/2 upstairs), all with TV. Wi-fi worked well so my son could do some work from home. Oil central heating. Lots of hot water. Cottage was extremely clean, modern and warm. Lovely helpful couple. Nearby Tesco (few minutes by car) in Buckie. Activities - Played golf at Buckpool and range and course also at Strathlene, or golf at Keith. Walking near Fochabers, and at Culbin woods. Cinema in Elgin.

Whitegate croft is an outstanding holiday home. I actually cant fault anything about this place.
Its in a brilliant location, tucked away down a country road but ideally situated for Cullen beach, Aviemore. And Inverness

Just got home from a wonderful holiday. Angus and Alvina, the owners could not have been friendlier in a completely unobtrusive way. The cottage itself was luxurious with every mod con you could think of - so comfortable and clean it was a pleasure to stay there. The area was very interesting - especially if you like wild life. We had two partridges on the doorstep every day knocking on the glass door for food. There are seals laying on the beaches and dolphins can be seen in the local area. A very relaxing holiday - I can highly recommend this cottage. It is better than it looks in the pictures. We intend to return next year.

“Big, well-equipped house that was a pleasure to stay in”

We stayed here for a week while up visiting nearby relatives (mother in law, nieces, nephews etc). The house is exceptionally large and extremely well equipped (eg TVs in all bedrooms, Wifi). We stay in a lot of holiday homes and this was up there with best. The kitchen has lots of work surfaces, a large cooker and everything you could need. Alvina and Angus, who live not far away, were very welcoming and helpful and the Marmalade and Raspberry jam waiting for us was very nice. The house is positioned some way up a lane off the main road and it would be difficult without a car. There is plenty of off-road parking at the house for several cars. Shopping is at Buckie about 3 miles away (Tesco, Lidl and more). We had high tea at Cullen Bay Hotel and this was to be recommended. There is a lovely view from the dining area there.
