Peterhead is a busy fishing port and sits at the easternmost point of mainland Scotland.
Peterhead is one of the busiest fishing ports in Europe with over 400 boats and a bustling daily fishmarket, and is one of the UK's most versatile ports. The Arbuthnot Museum, one of Aberdeenshire's oldest museums, tells the story of Peterhead's maritime history. Ugie Salmon Fishings, Scotland's oldest salmon fish house, sells direct to the public. Embark on the Peterhead Town Trail, a walking tour around the town highlighting four hundred years of history, stories and events.
To the north is the important RSPB Reserve, Loch of Strathbeg, a winter home for thousands of wild geese and swans. South of Peterhead is Slains Castle, said to be the inspiration for Stoker's famous novel, Dracula.
Peterhead is Aberdeenshire's largest town. Its surrounding countryside, beautiful landscape, and friendly community are some of the reasons Peterhead is so popular.
