Buckie is an historic fishing village in Moray. Its coastline stretches for three miles, and is made up of several communities. Buckie’s first harbour was one of the finest in Scotland, built in 1843 and extended in 1852 to become the Moray Firth's major fishing port.
Buckie is situated near the A98 and the nearest railway station is at Keith, on the Aberdeen-Inverness line. Bus services operate to Aberdeen, Elgin and Inverness. In 1994, the Drifter Maritime Heritage Centre was opened. Buckie has two golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pool and a caravan park. There are four primary schools within the town, as well as Buckie High School.
