Guide Charters is ideally located to explore all that the surrounding area has to offer, from Cullen to the west to Fraserburgh in the east. This colourful coastline has everything from 13th century ruined castles at Findlater to the site of a promontory hill fort near Pennan, as well as the historic harbours of Banff, Portsoy and Whitehills, and the traditional fishing villages of Sandend, Gardenstown, Crovie and Pennan.

Along with Scotland’s only mainland gannet colony, the RSPB Reserve at Troup Head there is an abundance of birdlife which can be seen from “Guide” or “Seacat”, including guillemots, razorbills, fulmars, shags and puffins. Add to this our most “famous” residents; the bottlenose dolphins, porpoises, grey and common seals and summer visitors including minke whales you’ll never be short of something to see.

As voted by National Geographic Top Rated Places to Visit – “A wonderful region of Scotland. Beaches are fantastic, and the area welcomes visitors as one of their own. Largely rural. People work together for the greater good–fishermen tolerate canoeists; farmers allow walkers to pass over their land on footpaths, etc.”
