Cruden Bay (grid ref NK 095 356)
Plenty parking at quayside. Launch from slipway/beach within harbour entrance, always sheltered.
Stonehaven (grid ref NO 878 853)
Access is at far right end of harbour, next to the boat sheds. Limited space for cars, plenty parking along quayside. Launch from the beach. Due to increased use particularly by SUP’s, the harbour area is out of bounds, and we need to avoid obstructing traffic entering or leaving the harbour, which is often busy with yachts, MRI or sea cadets training.
