Welcome to Gamrie . . .

and the villages of Gardenstown & Crovie

An area of Aberdeenshire, in the north east of Scotland, encompassing spectacular country landscapes and the picturesque coastal villages of Gardenstown and Crovie.

Built into the old red sandstone cliffs the villages have a quaint atmosphere. From the lovely harbour and beaches you can look out over the Moray Firth and perhaps catch a glimpse of the dolphins that often swim in the bay or experience one of the stunning sunsets.

An ideal place for a day visit or holiday break, the area has much to offer and explore – Walks, wildlife, heritage, arts and crafts, to name but a few and it is also in close proximity to a number of great visitor attractions, golf clubs and much more.

Gardenstown village and outskirts boasts a selection of galleries, a pottery and art and craft workshops. There is also a local shop, a hotel, restaurant and a tearoom.

Whatever you are looking for, the Gamrie area has a range of self-catering cottages, bed and breakfast accommodation and caravan sites to ensure your stay is just right for you and your family!

Where We Are

Gardenstown & Crovie are located on the Moray First Coastline in the North East of Scotland. This coastline was voted one of the best in the world by National Geographic tourism experts – see Coastal Destinations Top Rated

“A popular vacation spot for more than a century, this coast offers “outstanding cliff scenery” and maintains “a strong community feeling.” Seasonal and year-round residents appear to live in relative harmony. Tourism keeps “pretty coastal villages” economically afloat as Scotland’s fishing industry declines.” 

We look forward to your visit!
