  • Community Leisure Centre

    We know that our visitors don’t come to Scotland for its balmy temperatures and never-ending dry season! But nevertheless, if the weather’s wild, we still have plenty things for you to do indoors. Come and join us in the Fraserburgh Community and Sports Centre for a while. We have a 25 metre 6 lane swimming pool, a Learner Pool, a 40 metre Flume, a 20 station fitness Suite, a 3 Court Sports Hall, 2 Saunas, a Steam Room and a coffee bar! By the time you’ve finished all that, the rain is sure to have gone.

  • Fraserburgh Golf Course

    Following receipt of documents from the National Library of Scotland, it has been firmly established that the Fraserburgh Golf Club founded in 1777 is the 5th oldest club in Scotland and the 7th oldest in the World The course was redesigned in 1922 by the five times open champion James read more

  • Fraserburgh Heritage Centre

    Another worthy community-led project, the Heritage Centre showcases the rich history of the Fraserburgh area, with exhibits including artefacts and information from the lives of local Thomas Blake Glover (Japanese Industrialist) and Bill Gibb (fashion designer). Fraserburgh’s fishing heritage, railway history and the ‘Broch’ in WW1 and WW2 are also featured, making this a fascinating visit.

  • Kinnaird Head Castle and The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses

    Ever heard of a full-size lighthouse built right through the middle of a 16th Century castle? No, we thought not. But seeing is believing, so take the chance to share in the wonder of this truly unique castle, understand the lifestyle and courage of our lighthouse keepers and marvel at the sophisticated engineering that saved lives.

  • Loch of Strathbeg

    We couldn’t say it better ourselves: “Britain's largest dune loch is a joy to visit any time of year. In winter, thousands of wild geese, swans and ducks fly in, including 20 per cent of the world's population of pink-footed geese – it's a sight you'll never forget.” In winter, take a trip to the Loch before sunrise – seeing the pink-footed geese taking off with the rising sun is nothing short of breath-taking.

  • Maggie’s Hoosie (Little House)

    This is no ordinary step back in time; Maggie’s Hoosie has been lovingly restored to represent the life of the fisherwoman who lived there, and her parents and siblings before her. And when we say restored: picture earthen floors, no electricity or running water and four walls that have seen a lot of work - preparing and baiting fishing lines, curing, smoking, salting and drying fish. Don’t miss this community-led project.

  • Pennan

    Take note of the ‘unsuitable for caravans’ sign as you drive down to Pennan – this wee village is at sea-level, which is no mean feat if you consider the cliffs around it! Made famous by the cult film Local Hero, Pennan is a well-preserved reminder of a bygone age, when folk lived off and from the sea as fishing families. Watch the film the night before, remake the scene at the original Telephone Box (now a Listed Building) and enjoy the atmosphere in the Hotel which is still open during the summer season.

  • Strichen Community Park, Strichen Stone Circle

    This beautiful community park has been lovingly created around a large pond and is home to many birds and some very delicate wild flowers. There are lots of walks of varying lengths for all abilities. The nearby Strichen Stone Circle is Fraserburgh’s very own Druid’s Temple (termed so by Samuel Johnson in 1773). It has been destroyed and rebuilt a number of times, latterly with the help of archaeologists.

  • The Old Auction Room

    We offer an exciting range of outlets including Café 1909, Antiques & Collectables, Flowers by Louise, The Good Barber, Live Music and a wonderful outdoor area with garden salvage, garden curios and plants for sale.
