About Pennan

Clinging to the foot of a north facing cliff lies the village of Pennan…


and its celebrated listed building – a red telephone box made famous in Bill Forsyth’s 1983 film Local Hero.
The cliffs provide a dramatic backdrop to one of the prettiest of Scottish coastal villages.
Traditional fisherman’s cottages and the famous Pennan Inn line the single street in Pennan with the beach only metres away.

Idyllic on a summer’s day with blue skies and even bluer waters in the bay, Pennan can also be majestic on a stormy day, in a haze of sea salt with the waves crashing on the pebble beach.
The Harbour House in Pennan is a wonderful retreat from the busy modern world – enjoy sitting by the quaint harbour or looking out to sea with a cup of tea……bliss.
And when you are refreshed and ready to explore, Pennan is the perfect starting point for trips along the Moray coast and discovering the wonderful scenery of rural Aberdeenshire.
