This week we are at Sandend for our tour of the many wonderful beaches along the East Coast. The pretty little village is about 40 miles from the Bothy and lies between Cullen and Portsoy. We have visited Sandend before but like many other villages, we just love returning! The village dates back to the 1600’s and it was one of the first fishing communities in the area. The oldest part of the village is down at the harbour. A local landowner built the harbour back in 1830 and many of the cottages dates back to then!
Around the harbour you can see the fisher cottages, which like many cottages situated along the coast, sit with their gable end facing towards the sea. Theses are lovely little cottages.
The lovely sandy beach is just on the right hand side of the picture and the beach is a popular hot spot for surfers! We managed to spot a few catching some waves the day we went – it is such a great spot as the waves were fantastic!
