This beautiful coastline is dotted with pretty villages and harbours, and the seas renowned for their pods of dolphins. Aberdeen, Scotland’s third biggest city, with its stunning sparking granite buildings is a city of contrast, the historic cobbled streets of the old town, a new shopping mall, the delightful fishing quarter and beautiful sandy beach with fun fair. Banff and Macduff separated by a seven arch bridge over the River Devron, have very different histories which are still reflected in the architecture today, Banff was a trading port, the grand Georgian buildings in the upper town testament to this. The fishing port of Macduff is still very much in use today and the pretty bustling harbour is still the ideal place to spend some time. The Scottish Dolphin Centre is situated in Spey Bay where over 200 bottlenose dolphins reside, they can regularly be seen from the coastline, feeding, breaching and hunting in the sea.
