Peterhead, the largest town in Aberdeenshire, is an unforgettable experience. Lying some 32 miles north of the city of Aberdeen, it is the most easterly town in Scotland. It was founded by the 4th Earl Marischal and developed around the harbor at Keith Inch in 1587. By 1680, Peterhead had become one of the largest fishing ports on the north coast. Today Peterhead, known locally as the "Bloo Toon", is a thriving town of around 19,000 inhabitants where the local Buchan dialect is still frequently heard. Tour the quaint and charming streets and surrounding countryside, famous for its sheep and woolen creations.
