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.” 

Rough Guides‘Britain’s 30 Best Seaside Towns’ Gardenstown reached 11th in the UK and 2nd in Scotland.

“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.”
