Crovie Village

Small coastal village on North Aberdeenshire coast set in dramatic splendour in a narrow ledge in front of the cliffs. The village has no cars!


Crovie was founded by families cleared from the lands of the estates inland in the late C18. They were sponsored into fishing by their old laird which became their way of life. The fishing ceased in 1953 when a large storm wrecked part of the village and the fleet. Today it is an extremely well preserved fishing village largely given over to holiday lets.
