Crovie, Aberdeenshire

Crovie, Aberdeenshire

Crovie Cliffs

The coastal village of Crovie (pronounced "Crivvy") on the Buchan peninsula has changed little over the last century, and is to this day inaccessible by car. The public road ends at a car park above the village, and goods are transported to Crovie by footpath. Crovie can date its history back to at least 1297, and the nearby St Johns church goes back even further to 1004.

You can see live pictures of St Johns Church on our Gardenstown Webcam and our Gardenstown Weather Station has constantly updating weather reports.

In January 1953 the village of Crovie was ravaged by storms, which destroyed a number of the fishing cottages. Moves were made to level the village, but this was successfully opposed, and the cottages were renovated and restored by the Crovie Preservation Society.

Today the single row of houses that comprise Crovie, and neighbouring Pennan are a popular holiday destinations.
