No-one visits the Banffshire Coast to stay indoors.
We welcome lots of walkers and cyclists who enjoy the relative solitude of our trails. Walkers can find the best local routes here where you can find information about the difficulty, length and highlights of each route. Or they can print off some of our favourites with a map and directions. And we have routes for cyclists to enjoy.
If you’re looking for something more exhilarating, then you can go diving, try kayaking or sailing, and learn to surf. Sandend and Banff are magnets for surfers and their sandy beaches offer some of the best waves in Scotland.
Golfers should also pack their clubs, as we have four first-rate golf courses, all of which offer very different experiences. Head inland to Turriff Golf Club for a round in glorious greenery, and then to Banff and Duff House Royal where you can play in the shadow of the magnificent Georgian mansion. Royal Tarlair in Macduff is a cliff-top course with breath-taking views, while Cullen Golf Club will, quite literally, offer a round of two halves; you play the first nine holes at cliff level and the back nine at beach level.
Fishing is another popular activity for many visitors. Some enjoy the peacefulness of salmon fishing on the River Deveron beats or our trout fisheries, while others head to sea on a boat trip for a slightly more challenging experience.
We've taken the Coast on a Campervan Tour round Scotland - calling at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen. Here are a few pictures of those brave enough to take on our surfing challenge! You'll find more on Facebook or Twitter (@BanffshireCoast).
