Crovie /ˈkrɪvi/ is a small village in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, UK, dating from a time when the sea was the only mode of transport to and from Scotland's shores. It comprises a single row of houses. Unlike the similar neighbouring village, Pennan, Crovie is situated on such a narrow ledge that any cars have to be left at the south of the village. A footpath along the shore to the west leads to neighbouring village Gardenstown.

History

Crovie was established by families (crofters) who had been moved off the land to make room for the landlord's sheep. Here, they operated fishing boats for the landlord and gradually acquired their own craft instead. The fishing industry declined in the 20th century before ceasing altogether with the storm of 1953, which washed away a number of structures and forced the residents to flee. Since then most of the buildings have been turned into holiday lets.
