Cove

I love this picture which was taken on a nice sunny day on a visit to Cove. We have visited lots of wonderful villages and towns along the Coastal Route and Cove Bay is just beautiful!  Situated about 5 miles outside Aberdeen, it is definitely worth a visit.

The village of Cove appeared during the fishing industry and many of the fishing boats berthed on the shingle beach here which is nestled between the rocks. In 1878, the piers and backwater were built and fishing continued until around 1918. Today, only a few boats remain in the harbour.

When you drive down towards the harbour, you will see Cove Bay Hotel.  Take a right at the hotel and follow the road right down and over the bridge.  You can park here and walk down to the harbour and the Bay from here.

It is a beautiful place and certainly well worthy of a visit! Why not take a stroll along the harbour, take in the views and then head on back up the hill to Cove Bay Hotel for a drink and bite to eat!
