This large port - once fashionable as a spa town - has a history of fishing stretching back to the 16th century. At one time it was a major whaling centre, an industry remembered at the Arbuthnot Museum. The most easterly town in Scotland, its bay is a now a base for the major North Sea oil industry. The town was founded by George Keith, 5th Earl Marischal, and was the place chosen as landfall by James Stuart during the ill-fated Jacobite Rising. He left from here just a few weeks later when his troops went their own way. The Peterhead Maritime Heritage has various displays on local culture and industry.
