Beautiful – breathtaking – unforgettable. A visitor attraction in its own right, Stonehaven is located South of the city along the Aberdeenshire Coast.
An ideal spot for families, couples or friends the town has one of the region’s most notable visitor attractions, Dunnottar Castle. On the top of a craggy cliff-edge, the ruin is a firm Scottish landmark thanks to its dramatic setting.
Its own sandy seafront and picture perfect harbour home some of the region’s top eateries including Aunt Betty’s ice cream parlour, the award winning Bay Fish and Chips and The Tolbooth Seafood restaurant.
Along the seafront you will also find the Stonehaven Open Air Swimming Pool. So no matter what the weather you can experience the trueness of our crisp air in Winter and the gorgeously lit nights in Summer.
Head south from Aberdeen by car via A90. Stonehaven is served by regular trains from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. There is an available bus route operated by Stagecoach.
Nearby places include Aberdeen City and St Cyrus.
