Bright sunshine greeted me for this summer re-visit, under blue skies. A high tide showcased the picturesque harbour, repaired since the damage and disarray evident during my wild-weathered spring visit. Pleasure craft for visitors’ mackerel fishing pottered about in the harbour, on a flat, languid sea, such a difference from the storms of the last visit.

A bright morning at Sandford Bay.
Sandford Bay features a small beach, located south of Peterhead. The bay is generally sheltered and the beach is secluded. Best access is via a footpath from Boddam. It’s off the beaten track and feels isolated, particularly out of season. A wild storm made this an invigorating visit, but in summer seals can be seen basking on the beach, which lies next to excellent coastal walking. Highly recommended.
The beach as a reference point for Brenda.
