Peterhead Lido

Peterhead Lido beach is unusual as it is set within in the Peterhead outer harbour. It is close to the marina, adjacent to the lido caravan park and the marine college. Peterhead is attractive for a range of water sports and dinghy sailing.

Getting there

The Lido is part of Peterhead Bay and is accessed from the car park sign posted from the A982. There is a walk down a steep road to the beach. Alternatively, access can be gained by driving to the marina and parking adjacent to the bay. Peterhead Lido beach is within a mile of the Formatine and Buchan Way Cycle Route. Stagecoach Bluebird run bus service 60 from Aberdeen to Peterhead.
