Cruden Bay Overview

The picturesque village of Cruden Bay is located in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, approximately 23 miles north of the city of Aberdeen.

Cruden Bay is a coastal village with beautiful walks along sea cliffs and beach. In days gone by the village was a popular retreat for the landed gentry, and the legacy of those days are the many and varied attractions to be seen within the village and it's surrounding countryside.

The village is home to a world class golf course, rated in the top 100, as well as the beach which draws visitors from far and wide. The focal point for many lies just one-half mile to the north in the impressive ruin which was Slains Castle, the acknowledged inspiration for Brams Stoker’s "Dracula".
