Buckie is what is known as a burgh town and sits on the Moray Firth coast, around 30 kilometres from Elgin. Visitors arriving in Aberdeen Airport can take a train to Keith and then the bus form there or rent a car and you will get you to a Buckie accommodation in half an hour. Much of the appeal of Buckie is the scenery in and around the surrounding area, and if you take the Moray Coastal Trail, heading east from the town and along the cliff tops, you will quickly understand where the appeal. The views are quite staggering and equally striking is Bow Fiddle rock, a huge natural landmark that demands a photograph to record its impact. The final part of the walk takes you down onto an incredibly fine sandy beach, on the way to neighbouring Cullen.
At Buckie harbour there are some lovely marine tours available that will introduce you to the nearby fishing villages, as well as being party to the frequent accompaniment of pods of dolphins, which is always very special. The town's Heritage Centre is worthy of a visit, tracing the changes through the decades, irrespective of how major or minor they may have been; indeed it is fascinating to see how the place has retained its character over the years.
