|Welcome to Peterhead|
Peterhead is steeped in fishing history and is bounded to the south by stunning coastal views and rugged cliffs.
The town has always been intrinsically linked with fishing and it is perhaps appropriate that the oldest surviving building is a 400 years-old salmon fish house, found in Golf Road and is the oldest working building of its kind in the country.
The town is also one of the busiest in the North East and has a wide range of entertainment's and amenities including the award winning Lido beach, which is sheltered by the harbour breakwaters and situated off the main South Road.
The Lido is home to one of the town's latest attractions - Peterhead Maritime Heritage - which gives an interesting and informative look at the town's fishing history.
Starting with the present day boats servicing the oil rigs, the story progresses back though time, familiarising the visitor with wartime boats, trawlers, steam drifters and even the Viking trading boats.
The centre also boasts a cafe/restaurant, children's playground and ample car parking.
Whilst at the Lido, why not pay a visit to Peterhead Bay Marina, opened in 1994. It provides yacht crews with showers, fresh water, electricity, fuel, phones, restaurant, ship chandlers and boat repairs, all within easy reach of the berths.
It is ideally suited for vessels heading to or from Scandinavia and is the perfect stop-over for those using the Caledonian Canal to head for more traditional sailing areas on the West Coast of Scotland.
A marina manager is on duty between 7am-12 noon and 4pm-9pm from June until September.
For those interested in all things maritime, a visit to Peterhead Harbour is a must. Working trawlers can be seen each day within the harbour, whilst visitors can admire the port's two latest developments - the shiplift and new fishmarket facilities. You can also enjoy a cup of tea at the local fishermen's mission while you watch the world go by.Peterhead's Ugie Beach provides an expanse of golden sand where families can enjoy the North Sea air. Those venturing "ower the water" can also enjoy a round of golf at the town's golf club.
Peterhead Golf Club is the 18th oldest club in the world! Its old course has 18-holes and there are another nine holes on the new course.
Day and round tickets are available for both courses and its modern clubhouse provides first class catering facilities.
Another excellent golf course within easy reach of Peterhead is the links course of Cruden Bay. A par 70 course with a yardage of 6395 yards from the medal tees. A true test of golf with some really stunning views at many of the holes. Have you ever driven from the top of a cliff to a fairway some 100 feet below? If not, now's your chance. Cruden Bay Golf Club is a "must play" course for any visiting golfers.Again, the clubhouse has excellent facilities with a well stocked Pro-shop and superb catering. (A 10% discount can be had on production of the completed score card, whether it's a pot of coffee or a pint, a bar meal or high tea or even a four course dinner).
Entering Peterhead town centre, visitors can enjoy a look back in time at the Arbuthnot Museum, situated above the town's library in St. Peter Street.
Numerous and varied exhibitions are housed in the Museum, as well as a number of relics from Peterhead's fascinating past. One of the oldest, and most talked about exhibit is the Polar Bear - Just how did it get there again?
Peterhead boasts a variety of restaurants, which serve a variety of local dishes as well international menus. There are many venues and establishments that have live bands and other entertainment to "dance the night away".
