Peterhead Town Centre Trail

First recommendation is Peterhead Town Centre Trail. This is a great historical waymarked self-walking tour around the centre of Aberdeen’s biggest town. It is a healthy way to find out about the people and events that shaped Peterhead throughout it’s 400 year history. There are 8 information boards along the 2km route which is relatively flat and is mostly on pavements Start at the junction of Kirk Street and Marischal Street and allow 1 to 1.5 hours for walking and reading the information boards.
