On Hogmanay (New Year's Eve) 2014 we took a short trip to Portsoy from Banff. In fact we did this trip twice... once in the afternoon to visit the harbour and once at night to welcome in the 2015 with the firework display that the community of Portsoy put on.









We went there for the bells...




and the fireworks...



We also went to Cullen ...

If you are ever in the area, then Cullen is a town that you must visit.
Cullen is a village and former royal burgh in Moray, Scotland, on the North Sea coast 20 miles (32 km) east of Elgin - it is the home of the famours Cullen Skink!

As well as enjoying a walk down to the harbour, the beach and the Seatown area, the town itself has lots of interesting sites and shops to browse...

Moving west, we come to the village of Portknockie..


Portknockie is a cliff-top village overlooking the Moray Firth in NE Scotland, midway between Aberdeen and Inverness. Fantastic coastal views and home of the Bow Fiddle Rock







Bow Fiddle Rock




There is more to the village than the photos show and it would merit further exploration, especially down by the old harbour.

Moving west, we find ourselves in another port - Portgordon. A sleepy little village just west of the town of Buckie. It has a nice little harbour, a pub and a seal colony.
Portgordon is on the Moray Firth in Banffshire


Harbour car park




Harbour and village












On this occasion, we wild camped in the car park at the harbour, arriving in the evening and staying just one night. In the next series of photos we were wild camping for three days on the outskirts of Portgordon....
