Pennan is a pretty mellow spot that can have a reasonable sized wave when it's small along the Moray Firth. It's best at low tide and can produce nice sucky rights and lefts when it is on. Parking is a bit of a pain during summer season with the amount of tourists. The whole village is just one seafront street.

Local Hero - Think the film 'Local Hero' and your there!Probably one of the views of Scotland you're likely to see from the line-up.

Pennan - Pennan is one of the sweetest spots around the fraserburgh area and has a magical feel to it when you are in the water. The place is so beautiful and mellow, especially if you score a sweet midsummer swell and the bars are good.
