The Yardie is a conservation area within the town of Buckie on Scotland's 'sunniest north east coast'
Situated on the Moray Firth coast, The Yardie is a conservation area within the town of Buckie on Scotland's 'sunniest north east coast'. Moray is known as the Scottish Riviera as it gets very little rain and this part of the coast has a warmer and gentler climate than most other parts of Scotland. It's an unspoiled coastline, with dramatic cliff scenery, beautiful sandy beaches and picturesque villages such as Gardenstown and Pennan.
Families will love the extensive beach at Cullen and enjoy local opportunities to ride horses, play golf and watch rare bird life - the RSPB Reserve at Spey Bay is a must for keen birdwatchers. The Moray Firth has one of only two resident populations of bottle-nosed dolphins in Great Britain and regular boat trips leave from Buckie and Macduff harbours on dolphin-watching expeditions.
There are also a multitude of golf courses along this coastline. It is a wonderful base for a magical holiday experience.
