Activities in and around Cullen
Cullen and the surrounding area offers many opportunities to explore, with activities available and sights to see for both visitors and locals (its often the case we never seem to find time to explore our own backyard!). Cullen also happens to be a convenient base location for spending a day out off exploring further afield across Scotland’s North East and Highlands, all within easy driving distance.
Cullen is blessed with many interesting walks for all abilities. From beach and shoreline walks, scouting along the clifftops, taking in the panorama from Castle Hill, or exploring the Crannoch woods behind Cullen (picking wild seasonal berries along the way!)
Please refer to another complimentary local website http://discovercullen.com/localwalks.php which helpfully details some of the more common routes available.
The Moray Firth is home to an array of marine wildlife. Even from the shore there are frequent opportunities for spotting wild dolphins, seals, porpoises, minke whales, and the occasional orca, visible swimming around in Cullen Bay. Keep your eyes peeled and camera ready when next out on your walk!
Heres another useful link to more information about the different species of wildlife commonly found in our waters https://www.nature.scot/plants-and-animals/mammals/marine-mammals/dolphins-whales-and-porpoises.
Along the road to the East of the Centre is the main playpark which provides play facilities for young kids, including a BMX track, and even more space available for field sports (as well as a handy slope for sledging in the winter snow!)
The Cullen Sea School is run by the registered SCIO charity, the Three Harbours Association and is a warm and welcoming centre where you can enjoy an abundance of water sport activities, shore-based classes and even try your hand at boat-building. Our brand new building offers a small boat building/repair workshop, meeting/instruction space and showering/changing facilities including provision for disabled people.
The pioneer Old Tom Morris came north from St Andrews to find the same sandy soil and turf at Cullen Links. Situated halfway between Royal Dornoch and Royal Aberdeen on the Moray Firth coastline, this is a design from golfing history. Three hours at one of the 84 True Links golf courses in Scotland. Walk in the footsteps of the Grand Old Man of Golf
