 Additional Information

Fraserburgh beach has a variety of waves along its length that range in quality depending on how the sand bars are. The most famous wave at Fraserburgh is unquestionably The Point - a long, well shaped left that breaks on a clean NW groundswell. The Point breaks off the rocks that lie adjacent to the caravan site. This is without a doubt the most localised wave in Scotland, with plenty of locals and a tight take off spot. Don't expect to rock up at a weekend and get very many waves!! This aside, Fraserburgh picks up the most swell on the North East coast and will often be working when nowhere else is.

Nice place - Shame about the locals with all that drugs up there no wonder why they are so narrow minded but in the winter when it is quiet it is an awesome place to surf.

- Best standard of surfing in Scotland, and better banter than the Edinburgh nonces at Pease.
