History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Buchan Ness is joined to the mainland by the small fishing village of Boddam, where the remains of Boddam Castle stand on the cliffs to the south. The rocky shoreline is riddled with caves, while to the north stands the main Peterhead power station.
Three miles away at Peterhead is the Arbuthnot Museum, with displays on the rich maritime history of the Peterhead area.
