    Local information

    • Cruden Bay is a small village on the north coast of the Bay of Cruden, Aberdeenshire, just west of Slains Castle. It is a firm favourite with tourists thanks to its big skies and wide horizons, sandy white beach, crystal clear waters and quaint fishing harbour. One of Aberdeenshire's finest sandscapes can be seen at the Cruden Bay Golf Club, a traditional Scottish links course originally designed by Tom Morris of St Andrews and re-designed in the 1920s by Tom Simpson and Herbert Fowler. The panoramic views across the coast and of Slains Castle in the distance are breathtaking. Cruden Bay has a medium-sized primary school, while secondary schooling is available at Peterhead Academy. There are a few small shops, a chemist/newsagent, a post office, a craft shop and a general store. There is also a medical practice and library. There are good sports facilities, with tennis courts and two football pitches. The school and public hall house a number of youth groups such as Girlguiding UK.
    • To the north, there is the town of Peterhead, which was founded by fishermen and developed as a planned settlement. In 1593 the construction of Peterhead's first harbour, Port Henry, encouraged the growth of Peterhead as a fishing port and established a base for trade. A lifeboat station was first established in 1865. A new phase of growth was initiated in the 1970s with Peterhead becoming a major oil industry service centre, and the completion of the nearby St Fergus gas terminal. At this time, considerable land holdings were allocated for industrial development. It retains a relatively diverse economy, including food processing, textiles, service industries and, still importantly, fishing.
    • To the south lies Newburgh, where you can find a village shop, as well as an 18-hole golf course. Trump International Golf Links, a world renowned course, is located along the road from Newburgh. Ellon is a picturesque town positioned by the River Ythan. The areas surrounding Ellon have a rich agricultural heritage while facilities there include hotels, restaurants, specialist shops and a Tesco superstore. Leisure and sporting facilities are available at the community swimming pool and sports complex, rugby, football and hockey pitches at The Meadows Sports Complex, and golf at the McDonald Golf Club. Secondary education is catered for at Ellon Academy.
    • Approximately 24 miles away from Cruden Bay lies the city of Aberdeen. The international airport offers regular flights to London and other UK and European cities. The Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route provides improved travel in and around Aberdeen and a quicker and more direct route south. There are regular train services from Aberdeen, including a sleeper to King's Cross, London. Aberdeen provides all the services of a major city, including business and leisure facilities, theatres and cinemas, restaurants and a wide range of shopping. There is private schooling including Robert Gordon's School, St Margaret's, and Albyn School as well as the International School at Pitfodels. There are two universities and several colleges of further education.
