Gardenstown, or Gamrie as it's known locally, is situated on the north-east coast of Scotland and has big skies, big seas, and it nestles below dramatic red sandstone cliffs. It has rows of prettily-painted traditional fishermen's cottages, a beach and is one of the most beautiful villages in Scotland. It has a nice old-fashioned family feel to it, with its own butcher and bakers (not a candlestick maker although there used to be a candle-maker).
