Collieston, a small former fishing village, and the parish of Slains are situated along the North Sea coast in Aberdeenshire. The village lies just north of the Forvie National Nature Reserve (NatureScot) between Cruden Bay and Newburgh.
In Collieston you will find former fishermen’s houses, modernised and well-maintained, stand huddled together on terraces overlooking Collieston’s pier, the picturesque harbour and the safe, sandy beach. Bordering the village, the Forvie National Nature Reserve is popular all year round with walkers and birdwatchers.
Collieston has a cosmopolitan population of around 200 and a variety of community groups to cater for all ages and residents in the village and the wider parish of Slains.
