Peterhead Certificated Locations

Peterhead, nestled far in the north-east of Scotland, is a busy fishing port that also has an unusual claim to fame.

As well as being home to over 400 fishing boats and a busy daily fish market, the nearby Slains Castle served as inspiration for Bram Stoker when he was writing Dracula.

Along with visiting the imposing ruined castle, Peterhead's Maritime Heritage Centre is a great place to learn more about the sailors, whalers and fishermen who have populated the town over the years.

The Loch of Strathbeg, an RSPB reserve to the north of the port, is home to thousands of wild geese and swans, and fish lovers will be sure to want to visit Ugie Salmon Fishings, where they can buy a local catch from what is Scotland's oldest salmon fish house.
