Seventh Banff Conference on
**The organizing committee reserves the right to cancel a tour if numbers are not met.
Coach will depart from Marcliffe at Pitfodels and collect at Copthorne and Old Aberdeen, returning to Marcliffe, Copthorne and Old Aberdeen (subject to demand).
The tour will visit Scotlandís Lighthouse Museum, and return to Aberdeen via Peterhead and Cruden Bay, offering a wide variety of different coastal and countryside scenery.
Driving north from Aberdeen, you will pass through the fertile rural areas of Formartine and Buchan before arriving at Fraserburgh and the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses. In addition to the Museum itself, there is a tour of Kinnaird Head lighthouse, the first lighthouse built by the Northern Lighthouse Board in 1787 and constructed in an old 16th century castle. This gives an insight into what it was like to be a lighthouse keeper, and there is the chance to climb to the top and see the lenses and old clockwork mechanism which kept the light turning. The Museum has a cafť, shop and of course toilets, and is ideal for adults and children alike.
The return to Aberdeen will be by the village of Crimond, where there are 61 minutes in each hour (according to the village church clock!), and you will pass St Fergus, with its huge gas separation plant serving the offshore North Sea Oil Industry and into Peterhead, known as the Blue Toon (town), then head down the coast through Cruden Bay with its famous golf course before heading back to the main road and Aberdeen.
COST: £22 per person
