Cullen sits on the Banffshire Coast in the county of Moray on the Moray Firth. The Moray Firth is the largest of Scotland's firths and stretches over 800kms from Duncansby Head in the north to Fraserburgh in the east.
The Banffshire coast is one of the world’s outstanding coastlines, says the National Geographic. Not just for its natural beauty with plentiful wildlife – there are dolphins, seals, puffins and other seabirds in abundance – but for its “strong community feeling”.
The Royal Burgh of Cullen has stunning sandy beaches and seascapes, coast paths, an historic harbour designed by Thomas Telford, great shops and eateries and places to stay all set against the stunning backdrop of old railway viaducts, Castle Hill viewpoint and the Bin of Cullen and sits on the recently launched North East 250 Touring Route.
