Aberdeenshire | Town | ★★


Stonehaven has for a long time been a traditional day-trip destination for Aberdonians. It's easy to see why, with a picturesque harbour, beautiful coastal scenery and one of Scotland's most dramatically-set ruins nearby. Whether or not you plan on tackling the popular jaunt along the cliffs to Dunnottar Castle, consider trying a deep-fried Mars Bar at Carron Fish Bar, or perhaps just an ice cream from Aunty Betty's - Stonehaven is well known for both.
