Erroll is the older part of the village of Cruden Bay in Aberdeenshire
on the North East coast of Scotland. It runs inland from
the small harbour and was originally a fishing community. The origins of
Cruden Bay are associated with the building nearby of Slains Castle on
the base of an earlier tower house in 1597.
Originally known as the Ward of Cruden, the present harbour was built
between 1875 and 1880 and financed to the sum of £14,000 by the Earl of
Erroll and the area was renamed Port Erroll to commemorate this event.!
