Situated on the extreme north-east tip of Aberdeenshire, Fraserburgh is a friendly fishing town with an attractive sandy beach, and is the largest shellfish port in Europe.

The harbour and the attractive stone buildings are Fraserburgh's main appeal, with many attractions that give the visitor a flavour of its proud fishing history.

The Fraserburgh Heritage Centre is an award-winning museum that brings this to life, along with Maggie's Hoosie, a fisher cottage preserved at Inverallochy as it would have been in a bygone age. The new Museum of Scottish Lighthouses is within Kinnaird Head lighthouse, itself built on top of a fortified castle.

Other things to do include going to Cairness House, a stunning 18th Century neoclassical mansion about 4 miles south of the town with a large landscaped park.

For the more active, Fraserburgh Golf Club, which dates from 1777, promises a 'feisty' and challenging course over the dunes, due to the unpredictable north sea weather. The surrounding countryside offers all manner of outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling and surfing.

The nearby Loch of Strathbeg is a RSPB nature reserve home to thousands of migrating birds. You can see many breeds of geese, swans, waders and other wildfowl - and otters also visit the reserve.
