“Clean Salt Air”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

This mostly stone covered beach has a small wooden walkway to make your way to the castle or to the center of the beach area. There are bronze or iron sculptures along the path. It seems the local tourist board has done well to keep the beach appealing.

The beach has water conditions posted during warmer weather and there is a man-made pool for swimming. Mostly cottages and rental flats are along the walkway with most of the services located in the commercial bay area.

“Clean and refreshing.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Lovely refreshing walk along the front. Several tea / coffee places easily accessible as well as pit-stops for lunch. A welcome walk for our little dog who loves to meet other dogs. Water looked amazingly clean - especially around the harbour. Plenty of pubs etc too, Walks to the war memorial on the hill or to Dunottar castle. Will be back soon.

“Nice clean beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Nice clean beach where you can collect 'buckies'. Just along from the outside pool and there is an icecream and walkway right along the coastline to the harbour. Nearby caravan site.

“Great place to see in Aberdeenshire”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

20 minutes form Aberdeen Station and you get there. Train at all times to go and come back. The view is gorgeous and if you are in Aberdeen you should go and take a look in Stonehaven, It is a great place right in the coast, small town with nice hills, and if you have more time you should definitely take a walk.
