Pennan, Aberdeenshire

Pennan

The fishing village of Pennan, which is adjacent to Crovie, became famous for its appearance in the film Local Hero (directed by Bill Forsyth and soundtrack by Mark Knopfler, of Dire Straits) as the fictional village of Ferness.

Fans of the film come from all over the world to make a phone call from the red telephone box which featured in the film. The phone box was in fact originally put there only as a prop for the film, and then removed, but as a result of public demand a genuine telephone box was installed a few metres from the original spot, and has been a listed building since 1989.

You can see live pictures of the Pennan coastline from our Gardenstown Webcam, and our Gardenstown Weather Station has constantly updating weather reports.
