Fraserburgh beach in Aberdeenshire is sandy and golden and beautiful. It’s usually pretty deserted, especially early in the morning, and I love it.
I’m still very taken with the concept of blue mind (see last post on it here) and have decided to take every opportunity to experience it.
So, here I am.
Beside the ocean.
The tide is in today, so I only have to take a few steps to be right by the water. Sometimes the North Sea is far far away in Fraserburgh bay.
But this gentle morning, I just sit on a pink granite block and breathe it all in. The sun. The lapping waves. And the blue… the glorious blue.
Fraserburgh beach also features in these posts:
- Sometimes the Sea Wears Wonderful Colours
- The Space Between Dunes
- Beach Sunrises and Thoughts on Publishing
Romans + Celts = some rather complicated romance in SISTERS AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD.
Set in an Aberdeenshire castle, THE MERMAID AND THE BEAR features the Scottish witchcraft accusations and a love story.
FIREFLIES AND CHOCOLATE was inspired by the 18th century kidnapped children of Aberdeen and is set in both Scotland and Colonial Pennsylvania.

It is 🙂
It looks so great
It is lovely there 🙂
What a beautiful place! It looks very restorative.
It is 🙂
Great post, Ailish. The Broch beach is one of my favourite beaches and you’ve captured it beautifully! I love the ‘blue mind’ concept–Buchanhaven Beach in Peterhead is great for it as it’s generally quiet and feels more isolated as you head toward St. Fergus.
I’ll have to try Buchanhaven. I would like to visit any beaches I’ve missed 🙂
I hope you enjoy it!
Looks like a great place to be. Nice pics!
Great shots, Ailish Brings back many fond memories
Beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing, and I’m sending positive energy your way for healing.
Thank you so much 🙂
Great photography of a wonderful spot.
Thank you 🙂
Your pictures brought me there with you. What a great start to my day. Thank you.
I’m glad the pics had that effect 🙂
Beautiful photos and blue mind moments. Thank you, Ailish. <3
You’re welcome 🙂
Thanks for giving me the solace of a visit to the sea where I can smell the salty air, and listen to the soothing music of the waves.
I’m glad the post summoned those to you!
I must get back. It’s been almost 20 years since I visited the family farm in the hills where one can see the sea…hills from a person who grew up on the land where the mountains rise strait from the sea cutting off all but the most courageous travellers.
What an incredible sounding place!
Blue-mind… That is a beautiful concept — and it really describes the feeling well. I live by a very different sea – the Pacific Ocean… with her ironic name. There is nothing tame about this sea — she is wild… even when she is calm she must be respected – like any wild creature. Never turn your back on the sea… I live on the north coast of Oregon in the US — but I dream about seeing the coasts of northern Europe… especially Scotland, England, and Ireland. It’s unlikely I will ever see more than pictures since my grown sons can’t travel and require a lot of care – but that doesn’t keep me from dreaming about it. 🙂 I love living by the sea though — at some point the water here has likely flowed by the lands I want to visit — perhaps that’s the next best thing. 🙂
The Pacific is so varied. I grew up closer to Alaska then Oregon, but it’s the same ocean…but I was 100 miles inland. I seldom saw open ocean like you would see, or Scotland. The huge rolling waves. What I grew up with was strong currents and chop…and the cracking of the ice as the tide changed.
That is true, that water flows all over. And it’s a good thought.
