Sadly, despite the odd conspicuous flash of oil wealth, Whitehills is just a little too far from the economic honey pot of Aberdeen to really benefit from its recent financial renaissance, while the tourists that flock to the west coast generally bypass this coast. This is their loss: the towns and villages of the Moray coast like Pennan and Portsoy are remarkably unspoilt and, when sunny, provide some of Scotlands best (and best-value) holidaying. Whitehills is less picture perfect than some Moray ports, but one of the reasons its attracting visitors from the surrounding area is its recently refurbished pub, the Seafield Arms. Half hidden down a back street opposite a pottery housed in an old kirk, the place does a roaring trade, with its wood-lined, nautical-themed bar usually full, its family-friendly beer garden with tables for lunch and bouncy castles for the kids a popular meeting place in the summer, while its three bedrooms are full throughout the tourist season.
