Cullen on the Moray Firth is a popular tourist destination and a seaside holiday resort that is ideally situated for walking. There is a harbour and a long stretch of sandy beach with excellent coastal walks to Sunnyside Beach as well as the ruins of Findlater Castle.

The quaint village itself feels very welcoming and has a couple of decent pubs in the square where you'll also find the Mercat Cross.

The most striking feature of the town is the series of railway viaducts, one of the great achievements of 19th Century railway engineering, which divide the Seatown from the upper town. They were completed in 1886 by the Great North of Scotland Railway. These days one can walk across the viaduct.
