About Peterhead

Occupying the easternmost point of the Scottish mainland, Peterhead is a nationally important fishing port that is affectionately known as “The Bloo Toon”. It was founded in 1593 as a planned settlement before developing into Britain's largest whaling harbour and its residents supported the Jacobite risings of the 18th century.

Things to do in Peterhead

One of the most popular ways to explore is along the Peterhead Trail, which details the smugglers, Jacobites and poets who left their mark on the town. It consists of three routes dotted with more than 20 storyboards that can be walked independently or in succession. Along the way, you’ll pass by the Reform Tower, Old St Peter’s Churchyard and the Scottish Maritime Academy, as well as the Arbuthnot Museum.

At the Arbuthnot Museum, you’ll find engaging exhibits about Peterhead’s fishing, shipping and whaling industries, as well as a significant collection of Inuit artefacts. Occupying a beautiful building that dates back to 1893, it’s one of the oldest museums in Aberdeenshire. The Arbuthnot Museum also boasts a large gallery space where changing art exhibitions are showcased.

Don’t miss the Peterhead Prison Museum, which was built around 1888 as the country’s only convict prison. During its 125 years of operation, the institution had a reputation as Scotland’s toughest jail. With the help of an audio tour, you can discover what prison life was like as you explore the laundry, showers and barber’s shop. Visit the cells and courtrooms before crossing the exercise yard to the hospital, now home to the Refuge Cafe.

Getting around Peterhead

Peterhead is around 40 minutes’ drive from Aberdeen and Aberdeen International Airport, which has flights to destinations across Europe. Regular buses connect to Peterhead and the town centre is small enough to explore on foot.
