Cruden Bay Beach

Cruden Bay Beach is sandy and has a lot of room as it’s a very long beach with the ruins of Slains Castles at the top giving you a good walk if you’re tired of sunbathing!

There is a golf course here as well as harbour facilities like toilets and a post office with other facilities in the nearby town.  The car park is on the other side of the burn and you need to cross the bridge to access the beach.

Cruden Bay Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
