Situated on the northern coast of Aberdeenshire, Pennan is a delightfully rugged fishing village featuring no more than a handful of gable-ended whitewashed cottages that teeter on the water’s edge. Set at the bottom of a steep hill, the village is most well-known as the location for the cult British film Local Hero – the phone box that features in the movie now claiming both cult and listed buildings status – although the pebble beach is also a prime spot for watching dolphins and seals lounging on the rocks just outside Pennan.
