As we continue on the Coastal Trail North (we are now about 30 minutes drive time from Aberdeen) we come to the sleepy village of Cruden Bay, its harbour Port Errol and its magnificent beach.
This is a favourite spot of mine and I sometimes overnight there in the camper van. Please bear with me as this is a much-photographed spot of mine!

Here are a few more pics of Port Erroll harbour and Cruden Bay beach and village.

We will spend a little bit of time at Cruden Bay, its surroundings and its harbour, Port Erroll as it is a lovely spot.

Today is mostly about the beach...

Here are some b/w pictures of the harbour, looking towards the parking area. You can almost imagine how it would have been many years ago....

In the distance, the "Ladies Bridge" which connects the Harbour road with the beach. Without this bridge, the only other way to get to the beach is across the golf Course.
Work is currently under way to replace this wooden bridge with a more modern one.

There is a lot of history associated with Cruden Bay and Port Erroll. Some of this is to do with smuggling but most of it is to do with fishing and in particular salmon fishing.
