Peterhead is a town in Aberdeenshire, at the easternmost point of mainland Scotland, and 44km north of Aberdeen. The fishing harbour has two breakwaters (total length 1.3km) enclosing the bay. In the early 19th C Peterhead was one of Great Britain’s leading whaling ports. Fishing remains a strength of the economy, along with diverse industries, that include servicing the oil and gas industries following the discovery of North Sea oil in the 1960s. The harbours, maritime and built heritage are the town's principal tourism assets. Recent initiatives include investments in the Peterhead Bay area, which have included the berthing of cruise ships in the harbour.

In the mid-20th C Peterhead was dominant in Europe as a fishing port, and the Ugie Salmon Fish House showcases traditional fish preparation methods. The town is often referred to as The Blue Toun and people who were born there as Blue Touners. More correctly they are called blue mogginers, supposedly from the blue worsted stockings that the fishermen originally wore. The town appears austere and some of the architecture is striking. Note the 1788 Town House, and the statue of Field Marshall James Keith presented to the town by King William I of Prussia in 1868, and the statue of Fisher Jessie.

Walk around the harbour to see the ship repair docks, harbourside cannon, marina and Deep Sea Fishermen’s Mission. The former Peterhead Prison is now a museum, and the location of a 2017 Zombie action Movie called REDCON-1. Thirteen kilometres to the north is the important Royal Society for the Protection of Birds Reserve at Loch of Strathbeg, a winter home for thousands of wild geese, ducks and swans. Eleven kilometres south of Peterhead is Slains Castle, the home of Dracula, or at least the place that (may have) inspired Bram Stoker to write his famous novel. The former Peterhead Prison is now a museum, and the location of a 2017 Zombie action Movie called REDCON-1.
