Beautiful – Breathtaking – Unforgettable - Peaceful.  The dramatic unspoilt scenery of the Banffshire Coast – stretching from Pennan to Cullen – is a truly magical place.

National Geographic named our area one of the top 20 most beautiful coastlines in the world, with comments:

“… an undiscovered gem with pretty coastal villages…”
“…excellent beaches, and outstanding cliff scenery…”
 “…the area welcomes visitors as one of their own…”

Here you can spend your days visiting our charming coastal villages and harbours, exploring castles and historic homes, learning how our ancestors lived in years gone by, or celebrating our heritage and music traditions at one of our great festivals . You can raise a glass to our locally produced malt whisky, give our world-class ice cream producers the taste test, and enjoy the fine seafood that we export all over the globe.  But if you find it hard to sit still, here is the perfect location for a range of outdoor activities – walking, cycling, surfing, fishing and golfing – or getting up close to dolphins, whales and seabirds galore.
