Stonehaven is a North East of Scotland old fishing village with an idyllic harbour and stunning dramatic coastline to explore.



There is an abundance of wildlife to spot along the coastline Puffins, Dolphins, Seals and a huge amount of sea birds.

There is even a cracking wee point break wave that breaks in the bay for some SUP Surf action.

Loads of Caves and Coves to explore and of course the Iconic Dunnottar Castle.
