Discover Gardenstown on the North coast of Aberdeenshire. Gardenstown is known locally as 'Gamrie', from the name of the parish in which it stands. Gardenstown was founded in 1720 by Alexander Garden as a coastal fishing village. Nearby are the remains of the Church of St John the Evangelist which was built in 1513, and celebrates the defeat of the Danes at this site in 1004 in the 'Battle of the Bloody Pits'. Rugged coastlines, picturesque scenery and an abundance of Scottish wildlife, makes Gardenstown a must-see location on Aberdeenshire's coastal trail.

Gamrie Lodge

Gamrie Lodge

With Grade B Listing, Gamrie Lodge is a fine example of a four storey, Regency Buchan, former Manse dating circa.1828. Currently undergoing restoration by the present owners, the Lodge, with its distinctive projecting semi-circular stair tower, is set peacefully amidst lightly wooded grounds, yet commands uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside of Aberdeenshire Scotland.
