Muchalls as we know it today is a quiet village located just south of Newtonhill. It is a great place to begin a walk along the shore.
Interestingly, this village is effectively New Muchalls; the original village was a located ¾ of a mile to the south. Once a prosperous fishing community, two fishing disasters in a short period of time led to the abandonment of old Muchalls and the fishing boats moving south to Stonehaven.
Charles Dickens visited Muchalls in the mid-nineteenth century and described the town as ‘a remarkably beautiful place’. We hope you will agree.
