About the neighbourhood
The Banffshire Coast is home to a diversity of wildlife and beautiful rugged landscapes and has a relatively mild climate. The area is rich with history and heritage based on fishing and agriculture which provides the foundation for many excellent visitor attractions and festivals celebrating the traditions of the area. Cullen provides a terrific base for attractions such as the Malt Whiskey Trail and the Castle Trail which are only a short drive away.
Getting around
The village is very easily explored on foot. A car is recommended for visits further afield. Cullen is on the local bus route as well.
