Gardenstown Harbour

A fishing village with a picturesque little harbour on the Moray Firth coast of Aberdeenshire, Gardenstown is situated on Gamrie Bay, 6 miles (10 km) east of Macduff. It was founded in 1720 by Alexander Garden of Troup and rises from an older part on the water's edge to a newer part on higher ledges. Sometimes known as Gamrie, which is also the name of the parish, Gardenstown was a stronghold of the Plymouth Brethren.

The village was damaged by the Great North Sea Flood of 1953, which badly affected the NE coast of Scotland, with house-fronts brought down and sheds washed into the harbour.
