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 washed by the wild and stormy sea. A new adventure seems to be 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 the film Local Hero during the 1980s, and it still has a large fanbase following to this day. Loads of fans of the movie travel to Pennan to see the original locations up close and to spend a night like a real "Local Hero" in our BnB.
"We" are my husband Roland, our youngest son Dominik, family dog Mia and myself (Monika). We took over the Pennan Inn back in April of 2020, which to one's surprise was a very difficult time, given the pandemic and the impending lockdown that was in place but we fulfilled our liftetime dream by moving here.
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 love to deatail and have their own bathroom.
Each guest room has a flat screen TV with an Amazon 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 sea view that you will never forget.
You're free to enjoy a sip of wine or a glass of beer in our long-established little 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 my own gallery in which local artists exhibit their works of art, but I also present photographs of Pennan and Scotland of my own. Have you ever seen the aurora? Northern lights cast a spell over everyone! As a special extra, we offer photography courses * for night photography from October to April! Come with us on the hunt for the legendary northern lights or just admire the breathtaking starry sky over Pennan! These 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 B&B.
Monika , Roland and Dominik Focht
