Rattray Head

Rattray Head is a remote coastal area between Fraserborough and Peterhead. It is most famous for its lighthouse tower which was built in 1895 and is listed for its architectural and historical interest. The lighthouse is slightly offshore and can only be reached at low tide. The beach at Rattray Head consists of large windswept sand dunes that go on for miles and are deserted most of the time. The area is great for birdwatching, castles, nature reserves, fishing villages and quiet coastal walks.
