Stonehaven is one of the last stations before Aberdeen, and while visitors alighting here will miss the spectacular coastal stretch of track to the north, they'll still find much to enjoy in town. Stonehaven began life as an Iron Age fishing village - the oldest parts of it are around the harbour to the south of Carron Water, and while they're a little way from the station, they're quaint enough to be worth the walk. The once-dominant herring trade declined sharply in the 20th century, and today the town has a strong tourism economy, with visitors drawn by a long North Sea beach and some significant buildings, most notably the iconic Dunnottar Castle. If bathing in the North Sea sounds a bit chilly, there's also heated, Olympic-size outdoor pool right by the beach. Stonehaven's station opened in 1849, and the buildings still have period charm despite some modern touches. It offers services to Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as occasional long-distance trains to London Kings Cross.
