Built on several levels on the hillside going down to the sea and harbour, Gardenstown (also known as Gamrie) offers superb sea views of Gamrie Bay. Originally a fishing town, it has an attractive harbour where nowadays you will find a cafe for refreshments.
Superb view of the harbour from the end of Main Street
The town is typical of many with its sprinkling of Brethren halls and churches. Ladies in hats, accompanied by men with a bible in hand, are still to be seen out and about on Sundays.
Brooms restaurant in Main Street provides good homemade meals and snacks in a small but comfortable restaurant that feels somewhat like the living room of a house. The service is friendly and personal. telephone: 01261 851629 for reservations.
