Frozen Fraserburgh

Frozen Fraserburgh8th Dec

Since the start of the year Fraserburgh Super Saturdays, Fraserburgh Rotary Club, businesses and locals have worked together to generate enough cash to bring an ice rink to the town which will be free of charge to all, for a weekend long festive event on December 8th and 9th.

The groups raised the funds by organising raffles, a tartan ball, a drive in cinema event and collecting donations from local businesses and people. They were also successful in a bid from the Area Initiative ? Fund.

Super Saturdays Coordinator Leona Findlay said: “This December, we plan to put the town on the map for the right reasons and have been fundraising to bring an ice rink to the town for a weekend.

“Talk of an ice rink coming to Fraserburgh has created a buzz in the town and everyone is excited for the Frozen Fraserburgh event. Businesses are onboard with the plans and are looking forward to welcoming visitors from near and far with special offers and great deals.

“We took the decision to make the ice rink free for everyone to use so that everyone can afford to enjoy the experience.”

The weekend long event will kick off on Friday, December 8 in Saltoun Square with Fraserburgh’s Christmas late night shopping experience featuring the ice rink at 4pm.

There will be a special visit from Santa who will be arriving on his sleigh after his parade around town which starts at 6pm from the British Legion car park.

The festive event will also have children’s attractions, music, food and refreshments as well as lots of Christmas offers from local shops and restaurants. 

The following day (Saturday, December 9), the Frozen Fraserburgh event will be officially opened by Santa and the local pipe band, with the ice rink as the main attraction for the day.

The event will feature the RNLI Santa's grotto, along with a wealth of stalls bringing lots of inspirational gift ideas, a fantastic selection of street food, live music and much more.

It’s FIIIISH-MAAAAS at Macduff Marine Aquarium!

It’s FIIIISH-MAAAAS at Macduff Marine Aquarium!16th Dec - 17th Dec

Macduff Marine Aquarium celebrated its 20th anniversary this year and has under gone a major refurbishment of the central kelp reef exhibit. The aquarium was closed for the summer while the work was carried out and the grand reopening and birthday celebration was a huge success with record breaking visitor numbers in October.


Now as the chill sets in Santa will be beginning his travels south. He visits the aquarium on the 16th and 17th of December to give the fish their Christmas dinner and see how they are settling into their newly redecorated home. Santa will don his SCUBA gear for his annual dive in the aquarium’s kelp tank with the usual twinkle in his eye. He has been keeping a list of the fish and knows which ones have been naughty or nice this year – Jemima the halibut will especially have to watch out as she is well known to be cheeky with the divers – she’ll need to be on her best behaviour if she’s to get her treat from Santa! The aquarium’s newest shark, the starry smooth hound, is bound to get very special treats though!


Over the weekend, visitors can  enjoy the sea life of the Moray Firth, take part in the Twelve Days of Fishmas Trail, sing along with our community Christmas carollers, hear a Fishmas story and make some fishy Christmas crafts for those last minute gifts from the heart – festive fishy fun for all!


The aquarium is open 11am to 4pm, Santa dives at 2pm on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th December. Entry costs are £7.25 for adults and £4.10 for children.
