Cullen

[Cottage in Cullen]

Cullen's attractive streets reliably fill up with tourists each summer holiday at the slightest hint of good weather. And with good reason: this is a village famed for both its scenery and its food. The delicious haddock soup known as Cullen Skink originated here (lunch perhaps?), and The Ice Cream Shop has a deserved and loyal following from visitors far and wide. There are good views over the lower cottages of Seatown, its harbour and sandy beach from the former railway viaduct, now a cycle path, and also from the higher east end of the village. There's even a well-kept pet cemetery by the coast path just beyond the human one. Don't miss the excellent walk from Cullen harbour along the coast to the amazing sight of Bow Fiddle Rock - just pushing the coastline to the east into second place.
