  • Had a very nice light lunch here today with friends. We had a table at the window with fabulous views. Service a bit slow, but pleasant staff. Good selection of light meals available. 
  • Great view great way to hear the history of the town. Good food too
  • What a great place. You get a guided tour of the fist lighthouse in Scotland. It is built in a castle! The museum has all sorts of fascinating stuff about lighthouses and the life of the keepers. There is a super cafe with magnificent views over the sea, yesterday 5 killer whale passed by. While you are there visit Fraserburgh Heritage Centre and walk round Fraserburgh harbour one of the biggest fishing ports in Europe
  • Also very interesting for people who have no idea of the lighthouses. Great views from the lighthouse and interesting as the people at that time on a lighthouse lived. If you're lucky, you can see whales in the winter.
