Rockpool Cafe This photo of Rockpool Cafe courtesy of TripAdvisor

Our all out favourite is the Rockpool in Cullen. From Sandend, this is a no brainer, but if you are staying in Lossie or Burghead, plan this into a day trip to explore the wonderful little harbours and villages along the Banffshire Coast and you won’t be disappointed. If you are lucky enough to be around for one of their Bistro evenings, jump at the chance and we’ll probably see you there!

Aroma Coffee Shop

Just past the Lighthouse on the way to Burghead, this is another firm favourite, for both savoury bites and fancy pieces! You can even hit a few balls at the golf driving range next door or take a gentle stroll to the Lighthouse and a quieter section of beach! If you want to ‘earn’ your treat, it is about 3 miles along the golden sandy shore from the West Beach carpark.
