About Us

Welcome to the picturesque village of Cruden Bay, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Located approximately 23 miles north of the city of Aberdeen known locally as the granite city and world wide as the oil capital of Europe.

Cruden Bay is a costal village with beautiful walks along sea cliffs and beach. In days gone by the village was a popular retreat for the landed gentry, and the legacy of those days are that there are many and varied attractions to be seen within the village and it’s surrounding countryside.

The village is home to a top class golf course, rated in the top 100 in the world, and as well as the fantastic beach which draws visitors from far and wide, the focal point for many, lies just to the north in the impressive ruin which was Slains Castle, the acknowledged inspiration for Brams Stoker’s “Dracula”.

We hope you find your visit to our Community web site of interest, and if you haven’t yet visited our lovely village in person, we hope you will plan to do so in the very near future.
