History of Stonehaven
Stonehaven dates back to the Bronze Age, although the development of the ‘new town’ settlement began in the 18th century. Since then, Stonehaven has continued to grow in size, developing from a fishing village into a thriving port town with strong links to tourism, manufacturing and agriculture. Stonehaven is also highly regarded for its striking setting – behind Stonehaven Bay, in the gateway to Royal Deeside – and its wealth of scenery, as well as historical landmarks such as the stunning Dunnottar Castle.
Sea fishing in the waters surrounding Stonehaven involves only small craft nowadays, while the harbour is mainly recreational in use. The Stonehaven harbour area is full of interest and is surrounded by mainly historical buildings. The Tolbooth – which now houses a museum – was once a grain store in the 1600s, while the Ship Inn was built overlooking the harbour in 1771.

Stonehaven is also home to an outdoor Olympic size swimming pool designed in the art deco style. The pool, which is filled with completely filtered sea water, is famous for its status as the UK’s most northerly lido.
