Stonehaven's outdoor swimming pool - an art deco heated salt water pool - is open most days and also has occasional midnight swims (Tel: 01569 762134).
By the harbour is the Tolbooth Museum, built around 1600, and the town's oldest building. It now houses a seafood restaurant and local history museum. Jun-Sep Mon and Thu-Sat 1000-1200 and 1400-1700, Wed and Sun 1400-1700. Free.
Another attraction is the town's highly respected folk festival, held over three days in mid-July. Away from the harbour and old town is the market square, where you'll find banks with ATMs and most of the shops. Just off the square is Just Scottish, an excellent arts and crafts shop (open Mon-Sat 1000-1730).
