Boddam, Aberdeenshire

Boddam is a coastal village in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. It is 29 miles north of Aberdeen and 3 miles south of Peterhead. Sea cliffs rise to 200 feet, south of the village: a coastal path leads along these to the Bullers of Buchan. The adjoining settlement, on the Aberdeen to Peterhead road, was for many years known simply as Stirling: in 2004, it was renamed Stirling Village, to avoid confusion with the newly-granted city of Stirling.
