Local Attractions

Pitsligo Castle

Only a short walk up from the Davron this 15th century keep is one of the 'Nine Castles of the Knuckle' - which stand as an ancient group of castles in the north eastern point of Aberdeenshire and Buchan.

The castle although in ruins is still beautiful to walk round.  

And for those interested in the ghosts and paranormal activities Pitsligo Castle at night will certainly not disappoint.

Rosehearty Golf Club

A challenging and beautiful 9 hole 62 par links course in Rosehearty. 

Situated against the North Sea coast this course highlights what links golf is all about.

Rosehearty Beach

You might be mistaken for believing this beach is in a warm Mediterranean country.

This white sand beach is Rosehearty's best kept secret. 

Clear waters and white sand, this beach can feel like you've been transported to the Med (on a nice day), but the windy dramatic weather also makes for a breathtaking panoramic view of the North Sea. 

This is a must do walk for all that visit Rosehearty.

Rosehearty Harbour

A traditional working active harbour, Rosehearty has a small fleet of fishing boats (or 'yawls' as they are known).  These local yawls fish for mackerel, lobsters, crabs and various other fish and shellfish.

At peak season in the summer as many as 25 yawls can be seen at sea off of the harbour.  

Rosehearty West Rocks

Locally referred to as the 'Wastart', this is a rambler or dog walkers dream. 

Walk along the untouched coastline with the dramatic ever changing North Sea hugging and bashing against the rocks.  

The Wastart is a great spot for dolphin, bird and boat watching.

W. Bruce Ship Painters

Visit Fraserburgh's accidental work of art.

The wall outside W. Bruce Ship Painters has been used for years as a means to wipe excess paint from the brushes and rollers.  It's amazing how great this wall looks - it's a must see.  

It changes colour as each day passes, so be sure to catch it when you are in the area.

New Aberdour Beach

A short 5 miles West of Rosehearty lies the small village of New Aberdour, which boasts an amazing stoney beach with loads of inland limestone caves formed by the sea. 

The caves are brilliant for exploring and the beach is perfect for a picnic on a nice day.
