A trip back to my childhood, memories of holidays by the sea, a mix of modern facilities with luckily lots of original features. Pool really warm, midnight swim disco makes for a really different night out. Staff really helpful, professional and cheery. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Great place to go with or without children. Cheap entrance with no time limit on how long you go in for. We were lucky to have a hot day which made it better, cheap food served in cafe. Very welcoming:)

Brilliant place, had a few problems with heating but seems to be sorted this year! Newtonhill pipe band usually opens it and is good fun to watch!!

A piece of history in the town, well maintained and run and great fun for a family day out - even space to sit by the pool when the sun is shining! Very few of these pools left in the UK, well done to Stonehaven community for keeping this great facility going!

Loved it! It's like stepping back in time but in a good way. We went on a chilly July day but still enjoyed it as the pool is heated like a bath. Definitely will be back.

This is a big swimming pool, has deck chairs at the side for those who want to sunbathe, there is a slide for the kids too. The water is heated but is salt water so don't get any in your mouth if you can avoid it! Changing rooms are large and fully equipped.

I had been several times and had pretty goos experience.Equipment are pretty old, but pool is pretty big so you can enjoy the swim. It is located by the beach and close to the cafes and ice cream shops. There is a huge parking and playground which baby facilities.

Beautiful building, nice and warm unlike the north sea, fun, great family environment. Watch out for Sun burn as it is too easy to forget how long the skin is exposed to the sun.

I loved this open air swimming pool, went as a family thinking there is no way their claims that the water would be warm could be correct... how wrong could I be. The water was lovely and toasty almost like going into the bath at home! So long as you stayed under the water on the cool day it was... More

Went to Stonehaven Outdoor Swimming Pool last weekend when it was 12 deg C and raining. Our kids aged 3,5 and 9 had brilliant fun. We were in the pool for over an hour and a half. It was very quiet because of the weather, so please don't tell anyone how great this is on rainy days or it will... More
