Cruden Bay is a small village on the north coast of Aberdeenshire. The Boathouse is located within the conservation area of Port Erroll, with historic links to the picturesque harbour and Slains Castle. The area is a firm favourite with locals and tourists thanks to its mix of rugged coastline, dramatic sea views and miles of sandy white beach. The area is blessed to have an abundance of land, air and sea life. Seals, porpoise, dolphins and whales are seen regularly from the beach and clifftops.
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 to Slains Castle- said to have inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Cruden Bay has a medium-sized primary school, while secondary schooling is available at Peterhead Academy or Ellon Academy. There is a chemist, newsagent/general store and a post office, with Morrisons Local in the planning stage. There is also a medical practice, library and a couple of popular hotels. There are good sports facilities, with tennis courts and two football pitches.
Eight miles to the north, there is the town of Peterhead. With a population of around 19,000 it has a relatively diverse economy, including commercial fishing, sea food processing, textiles, renewable energy, wind turbines, oil & gas, fabrication & service industries and port for cargo & supply vessels.

To the south of Cruden bay 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.
