Attractions

Wildlife
There is a wonderful array of wildlife and plantlife in and around Rattray Head. You will see hundreds of rabbits, thousands of wintering geese, a huge variety of birds, the occasional deer, badger, and fox, and the summer seal colony. There are even wild strawberries and orchids hidden in the marshy hollows of the dune system.

Beach and Dunes
We are located in the middle of 11 miles of glorious sandy beach and dunes. The beach is a well-kept secret having only a handful of access points along the entire length. It is therefore very secluded, and when we walk the dogs we almost always have the beach to ourselves. It's marvellous!

RSPB Loch of Strathbeg
The nature reserve covers 2300 acres and contains the largest dune loch in Britain. An internationally important wetland and a Site of Special Scientific Interest, the reserve is the winter home for tens of thousands of pink-footed geese and large numbers of whooper swans and ducks.

Coastguard
We don't know much about these cottages yet, so more research to do.

Lighthouse
Construction details about the 1895 lighthouse built by David Alan Stevenson.

Wrecks
So far we have found four wrecks within one mile south of the lighthouse.

The Pitfour Observatory
