A fishing village comprising a single row of cottages and a pier on the Moray Firth coast of Aberdeenshire, Crovie lies immediately north of Gardenstown on the east shore of Gamrie Bay. Pronounced 'crivie' by locals, the village is strung out along a narrow strip of land isolated at the bottom of 200-foot-high cliffs a half-mile (1 km) northeast of Gardenstown, on the east side of Gamrie Bay. Much of the village was destroyed in the Great North Sea Flood of 1953, which badly affected the NE coast of Scotland.
