Statement of Interest

Auchmithie village stands on an elevated site overlooking the North sea. It is irregularly planned and consists of simple uniformly-designed fisher cottages, generally dating from the 18th century, some rebuilt in the 1860's. Regrettably, most have been much altered in recent years (1992). No longer a fishing village, Auchmithie is also of historical interest as the "Musselcrag" of Scotts' Antiquary.
