The City

Slains Castle Photo 2007 by Jeff Hay

Peterhead sits at the easternmost point in mainland Scotland, only 30 miles from Aberdeen and Aberdeen Exhibtion Centre. It is often referred to as The Blue Toon (Locally spelt as "The Bloo Toon").

Peterhead is one of the busiest fishing ports in Europe with over 400 boats and a bustling daily fishmarket, plus a 100-berth leisure marina. The Maritime Heritage Centre tells the story of the local sailors, whalers and fisher folk. Ugie Salmon Fishings, Scotland's oldest salmon fish house, sells direct to the public.

To the north is the important RSPB Reserve, Loch of Strathbeg, a winter home for thousands of wild geese and swans. South of Peterhead is Slains Castle, the home of Dracula, or at least the place that inspired Bram Stoker to write his famous novel.

Peterhead was founded by fishermen and was 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.

  • Excellent location in the middle of the interesting fishing town of Peterhead. Apartments are superb and obviously very new with very tasteful, good quality fittings and comfortable beds. They are tremendously spacious with a separate living room/fully equipped kitchen. Staff are friendly and can't do enough to help and opting for the goody bag for breakfast was a treat.

  • We had a lovely stay here on a Saturday night, myself, my partner and our 9 month old baby. Beautiful, warm and homely. Good quality travel cot and high chair that where already set up for use was very much appreciated. Excellent facilities, very clean and well laid out, loved the little touches that made it feel like home. Breakfast packs where perfect, especially the baby pack which was very thought out. Situated in an excellent location within Peterhead, would definitely recommend staying here.
