    Rest, Relax, Rediscover . . . Known for its friendly, relaxed feel, Cullen Bay Hotel makes the perfect getaway on the north-east coast of Scotland.

    The hotel’s restaurant looks out onto breath taking views of the sea and boasts excellent local cuisine. Whilst hotel guests can enjoy the newly refurbished bedrooms with either stunning seaviews to the front or views of Bin Hill and the countryside to the back.

    The beach is just a stone’s throw away and is rich in marine wildlife and dramatic coastal scenery. Banffshire is named as Scotland’s Dolphin Coast so the hotel is a natural spot for dolphin watching as well as a haven for natural wildlife. National Geographic also named the area as one of the top 20 most beautiful coastlines in the world.


    The restaurant is well worth the visit for locally sourced and freshly cooked food whilst enjoying the commanding views of the Moray Firth.

    The hotel likes to champion local suppliers and their restaurant serves some of the freshest seafood around. From the sea to their kitchen, the local seafood can take as little as six hours.

    The beef has been aged for 28 days and comes from a local supplier whilst their vegetables come from within a 20-mile radius. All food is cooked to order by their team of skilled chefs.
