Fraserburgh (locally known as The Broch) is a town in Aberdeenshire.
As Fraserburgh is one of the largest ports in the north east the most convenient way of getting here is on board a fishing vessel, many of which regularly dock in Fraserburgh to offload their cargo once they have finished fishing the rapidly depleting surrounding waters.
With over 400 years of heritage 'The Broch' as it is commonly known to locals has more than its fair share of attractions.
Broad Street Known locally as the 'Broadgate' this is the beating heart of the town, with the recently bankrupt Woolworths taking pride of place there for over 100 years. The street also provides a bargain hunters dream with a vast array of 2nd hand stores showcasing the finest in vintage clothing and goods.
The Flagpole An arena of vehicular acrobatics and a show of power, the place to be if you want to see modified sub-2litre engine cars drive at the very limits of their capabilities. The inspiration for Hollywood blockbuster move "The Fast and the Furious".
Fraserburgh Academy, local secondary school
Fraserburgh Academy, Dennyduff Road, fraserburgh. The local secondary school is well-recognised in the local area for it's impressive roster of alumni. You are free to go in for a wander around, and watch out, you might bump into the next Bill Gates!
The Harbour Once filled with modest fishing vessels this is now largely populated by multi-million pound trawlers, a spectacle to behold, and a far cry from the days when locals used to lure fish to the shore with enchanting songs and dances before sending down local knights on horseback to attempt to convert the fish to Christianity. When it was found that fish were incapable of understanding the complexities of religion of the time they were slain, and it was then discovered the fish were edible. This is directly reference by the modern day 'Cod Crusaders' which pay respect to these early crusading knights.
Fraserburgh has a vibrant choice of nightlife, with a large concentration of bars in the town center area offering distinctive music, surroundings and clientelle.

Deejays An intimate yet bustling nightclub playing the latest in dance and popular hits, this is THE place to be on a saturday night in Fraserburgh (when Aberdeen/Peterhead isnt an option).
The Royal Dont let the regal and grandiose name fool you, this is infact an attempt at irony at the Dickensian nature of the club, although the entrance and drinks prices remain disproportianate to the surroundings.
