Where to really are spoilt for choice when it comes to activities in the area. If wildlife is your thing, whether it's birdwatching or dolphin spotting, we have it all! The sight of the elegant Gannet scanning the seas then spearing the water is mesmerising to watch. A wander along the beautiful beach never fails to make your spirits soar and you might be lucky enough to spot a dolphin or two (or maybe even a whale if you're really lucky)! Cullen is the perfect place for a bit of Aurora watching thanks to the low light pollution on the beach and clifftops, so, don your winter woollies, let us fill you a flask of something warming and go scan the skies for a sight of the magical Northern Lights. If you like a rummage around second hand/antiques shops, then there are plenty in Cullen to satisfy the inner treasure hunter in you.

Cullen Links Golf Club sits in the bay and has to be one of the most scenic in Scotland. We are also on the northeast 250 route so it's the perfect stopover for a night or two (or three).

The area is a photographers delight with wildlife and ever changing landscapes. At Portknockie you have the atmospheric Bow Fiddle Rock and a short drive away is Spey Bay where, if you are patient, you will be lucky enough to capture the sight of a hovering Osprey on the hunt. 

There's a multitude of activities in Cullen that I haven't even mentioned, from surfing to biking, fishing to sailing and of course, there's stravaigin, to roam, wander and gad aboot in a casual manner, which in my opinion, is the best activity of all.
