Banff & Buchan
Land of barren hillsides, glorious beaches, beautiful valleys, magnificent chateaux, planned towns, ancient kirks, remote graveyards, castles, and cliff-bottom fishing villages like Crovie and Pennan. This ''cold shoulder of Scotland'', under some of the clearest skies in Europe, contains a surprising quantity of architectural wealth; and it is through the architecture of Banff and Buchan that the hidden treasures and character of this once-private principality is explored.
