    Cullen sits on the Banffshire Coast in the county of Moray on the Moray Firth.
    This part of Scotland's coast is one of the world’s outstanding coastlines, says the National Geographic. Not just for its natural beauty with plentiful wildlife – there are dolphins, seals, puffins and other seabirds in abundance – but for its “strong community feeling”.

    The Royal Burgh of Cullen has stunning sandy beaches and seascapes, coast paths, and an historic harbour designed by Thomas Telford.

    Cullen is famous for its Cullen Skink
    Cullen Skink is a traditional Scottish delicacy that has found its way onto menus across the globe. It is a creamy potato and smoked haddock soup, using fish fresh from the North Sea by which Cullen rests.

    You got my mouth watering there, Mike.

    I don't know, but that town looks awfully exposed to the sea. I think I'd build my house up on the bluff.
