House Removals Peterhead
Peterhead is located in the north east of Scotland and is a busy fishing port. And, like neighbouring Fraserburgh, it is one of the busiest fishing ports in Europe, with over 400 boats and a lively daily fish market. There is also a 100-berth leisure marina. The Maritime Heritage Centre tells the story of the local sailors, whalers and fisher folk. Ugie Salmon Fishings, Scotland’s oldest salmon fish house, sells fresh fare direct to the public.
To the north of Peterhead is the Loch of Strathberg RSPB Reserve. Many visitors flock here in the winter months as it is during this period that it is home to thousands of wild geese and swans. South of the port is Slains Castle, the castle which inspired Bram Stoker to pen his famous novel – Dracula!
