Buckie is a coastal town with a long and proud fishing heritage.
A working fishing port with an active shipyard, this is a town still very much linked to the sea. Visitors can learn more about the history of the town at the Fishing Heritage Centre in the town centre.
The long-distance footpath of the Speyside Way ends here in the old port of Buckpool. This has since been replaced by a park, but makes for an attractive, windy, seaside walk alongside traditional stone buildings.
Just along the coast to the West is the Spey Bay nature reserve, a remote and empty land of marsh, reed and shingle that is home a huge diversity of wildlife. Perfect for bird-watching, other notable species to look out for include wild dolphin and atlantic salmon, once fished here in large numbers.
