Note that the "low" West Germanic languages can be further split into "continental" and "North Sea" (or "insular") branches, the former being Low Saxon, Dutch, West Flemish, and Afrikaans, and the latter being English, Scots, West Frisian, East Frisian, and North Frisian.
Of the "low" West Germanic languages, the closest to standard Hochdeutsch are Low Saxon and Dutch, but neither of these are inherently crossintelligible with it, even though they may superficially seem like such to someone who doesn't speak them.
