Images of Sandend, Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Sandend lies on the coast some three miles west of Portsoy. As its name suggests, it stands at the end of a beautiful broad sandy bay which is one of the most popular beaches in the area.

The earliest mention of Sandend dates back to 1624, but most of the charming fisher houses still standing today were built in the early 19th century when the tiny harbour, reputedly the smallest in Scotland, housed a thriving fishing industry. Today local fishermen sail from nearby Buckie although fish is still cleaned and cured in the village.

To the west of Sandend lies the spectacular coastline of Logie Head and Sunnyside Bay which are reached by a good network of signposted paths. Paths also link Sandend with nearby Fordyce making this area a walkers paradise
