Starting in Fraserburgh, head South onto the B9033 /B9103 towards Inverallochy, passing Philorth Waters and on to where Maggie’s Hoosie is located (best to call in advance to confirm tour times). Step into the traditional working lifestyle of a fisherwoman (yes, she prepared a lot of baiting lines) and enjoy the fascinating details shared by your tour guide.

Head northwards on foot (car possible too), along the rugged, rocky shore to Cairnbulg Boathaven; a small, reconstructed harbour and modern marina created from the original pier. Enjoy the boating activity and super views going along Fraserburgh Bay and out into the vast North Sea.

Are you looking for a hidden (history) treasure?  You’ll find a big boulder behind the boat-sheds, which marks Blind May’s Grave, who is very well-known to local people.  She was the second victim of the cholera outbreak in 1843, and her body was moved from the churchyard to there when people discovered her cause of death.

Onwards, to the fabulous golden sands of Fraserburgh Bay. Are you brave enough for a dook (swim)? If so, check with the locals about conditions, we love a good dook! Beautiful expansive skies and some of the cleanest sea water in the UK await you.

And for golfers
Then on to Inverallochy Golf Course and Club House, a local institution that’s now well over 120 years old.  You’ll know you’ve found it when you see the famous granite statue of a golfer.  The course is renowned for the friendliness of local golfers, sea views guaranteed at every hole, and those well-deserved refreshments in the Club House afterwards.
