The port was established in 1607 with the main purpose of providing a place for fishing and has changed over time due to various circumstances. Through over fishing and increasing competition the port transformed itself into more of a commercial port and where boats can be rented. Next to Stonehaven harbour there are also beautiful beaches nearby to our holiday homes. The North Sea of Scotland is known for its colder temperatures and strong winds. Because of this there are plenty of wind proof and heated swimming pools in which you can relax.
