Catterline & Fowlsheugh
|[RSPB Fowlsheugh - watch the grassy area below the cave for puffins]|
From the scenic A92 south of Stonehaven, several narrow lanes give access to the coastal fishing villages nearby: tiny Catterline and even tinier Crawton. The former has a superb seafood restaurant, the Creel Inn, high above the picturesque bay; the latter welcomes thousands of seabirds every summer to the cliffs nearby along with their associated smell!
