Rough Guides have recently announced ‘Britain’s 30 Best Seaside Towns’ and Gardenstown reached 11th in the UK and 2nd in Scotland. An amazing achievement for a small village!
“Scotland’s northeast coast has a bleak, rugged quality, with a series of small fishing villages dotted along the miles of lonely beaches. The prettiest of the lot is Gardenstown, with stone cottages huddled around a wave-gnawed bay, and newer buildings clinging to the nearby cliffs. There’s little to do here beyond soaking up the solitude, taking a windswept stroll along the waterfront, and dropping into the small gallery and teashop down by the harbour. Pure bliss.”
