Art, Drinks and Rooms by the Sea





Welcome to the Pennan Inn BnB & Gallery!

You might feel like you were thrown into the setting of a scottish movie when you make your way to Pennan. Small narrow streets meander through a picturesque landscape that couldn't be more beautiful. Rugged and steeply sloping coastlines are shaped by the wild and stormy sea. There's a new adventure seemingly waiting around every corner! Pennan is located between Fraserburgh and Banff, and there is nothing but sea and nature over here! Time seems to stand still. Some small houses nestle against the massive rock wall and seem to defy wind and weather.

Pennan was the filming location for Local Hero during the 1980s, and it still has a large following - even to this day. Loads of fans and enthusiasts travel to Pennan to see the original locations up close and to spend a night like a real "Local Hero" in our BnB.

With the North Sea right at our doorstep, we offer the perfect environment to relax and listen to the sounds of the waves crashing against the shore.

We‘ve got a grand total of 3 rooms - two with a direct and indescribable sea view. All rooms are furnished with attention to detail as well as a each room having it's own separate bathroom.

Each room has a flat screen TV with an Amazon Fire TV stick (in case there's interference caused by bad weather). From a minibar (sea view rooms) to free toiletries – a hairdryer or the coffee / tea station, everything is at your disposal. You're guaranteed to wake up to a view that you will never forget.


You're free to enjoy a sip of wine or a pint of beer in our small and cosy pub during the evening hours. On that note, we would like to point out that we do not operate a restaurant, and therefore only offer bar snacks in the evening!

Our offer is rounded out by our own in-house gallery in which local artists exhibit their works of art, but we also present photographs of Pennan and Scotland of our own. Have you ever seen the aurora? Northern lights cast a spell on everyone! As a special extra, we offer photography courses* during night time from October to April! Come join us on our hunt for the legendary northern lights, or take a gander and admire the breathtaking starry sky over Pennan! Those are memories that you're guaranteed to take with you forever. Allow yourself to be enchanted by Pennan!

We look forward to welcoming you to our BnB.

Best Regards,
Monika, Roland and Dominik Focht
