    Very interesting history and definitely an eye opener! Very authentic, just the way it was. Valuable insight for youngsters too. Lovely cafe at the end of your tour.

    The view was spectacular got loads of stunning pictures, the only reason I rate it 4 stars is because the bullars of buchan to slains castle side of the walk was closed.

    A brilliant place to visit which we thoroughly enjoyed! The Admiralty Gateway is the main gateway into the prison and named as such because of the old connection where prisoners worked in the quarry to quarry stone for the breakwater the Admiralty needed.

    Great, very informative tour. Danny was very passionate about the brewery and shared lots of interesting information with us through the tour. The tasting at the end was also a highlight. Highly recommended.

    My family and I stopped in to the Balmoor Cafe for lunch. The cafe is situated in Peterhead Football Stadium, it nice a clean and the staff all locals were friendly and welcoming, my granddaughter and I both went for the "Bloo Toon Pie" served with chips and gravy, it turned out that it was a mince pie with what I detected was a hint of haggis, but perhaps I was wrong. The staff were friendly and although they were busy, chatty and and were up for a joke.
    The toilets were spotless and smelled fresh.
    Would I go back again, I visit Peterhead regularly and would certainly eat there again.

    Have always lived locally and never visited here until today. Will definitely be back. What a lovely place for a walk. I had my 12 and 7 year olds with me and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. So many places to explore. We stuck to the paths and were careful so felt completely safe. Probably wouldn't visit or a wet or windy day but will definitely visit again.

    Fantastic staff and lovely environment. Clean and friendly space open and inviting for children of all ages which encourages reading in a fun environment. Holiday story telling and craft sessions brought us in but definitely will be back lots. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and my daughter had a blast, she can’t wait to come back.

    The museum is situated above the local library. It has a lot of local history to do with Peterhead when it was a whaling town.

    Also a section for kids with local wildlife in taxidermy form

    You can not visit here and not go for a paddle or swim here. Crystal clear water, although it is a bit nippy, so go easy if cold water isn't your thing.

    Old St Peter's Church (also known as St Peter's on the Links) is well worth a leisurely stroll through the graveyard which contains various tombstones, crypts, monuments and memorials mainly from the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries and are considered Category B listed status.

    If you get in the right position within the beautifully crafted stoneworks you can see the harbour and the local Aldis on the right side down the hill from the graveyard.

    Unveiled on the 6th August 1922 in honour of the fallen war heroes from Peterhead during the Great War.

    Poppies are strewn around the base denoting the blood of those soldiers, sailor and airmen.

    I think the reason there’s no reviews yet for this lovely beach is because the locals are trying to keep it a secret 🤫 for themselves . Crossing the Birnie footbridge, it lies across the north side of the River Ugie bordering Craigewan Links and Peterhead Golf Club ( which is the 18th oldest golf club in the world) , and has fine clean-looking golden sand, and plenty of it on which to walk on at low tide. Nice views over to Buchanhaven. It’s more rocky further along with quite a lot of washed -up seaweed. You can walk further along the coast to Scotstown Beach ( approximately 6 km north ) at low tide. The only blight was a lot of mixed rubbish lying at the border between the lower dunes and the seagrass, and didn’t know if high seas or recent high winds had deposited it - difficult to know.
