What’s so stunning about Stonehaven?
With our picturesque harbour, lovely family friendly beaches, amazing castle and historic sites, fantastic walks, woods, open-air swimming pool and independent shops there is something in Stonehaven for everyone. On top of that there are great places to eat, drink and stay, many of which are award-winning. In Stonehaven you can have a day out of the ordinary exploring and making memories. Better still, come for a weekend or make a week of it!
