Connecting communities to our coast

Greyhope Bay Centre - more than a cafe with a view
Our cafe and community space is the best spot in the UK for dolphin watching and the cafe with the best views in Aberdeen! We launched the first off-grid cafe and learning centre in Aberdeen. We operate without connection to grid power and water and use alternative hybrid energy and circular rainwater technology. We host creative and heritage-based workshops and events led by local people to share knowledge and learn new skills. We run educational programmes for school groups year round

Our latest project is about expanding Greyhope Bay facilities and programmes at Torry Battery and creating a model in which people can actively participate and co-design with us the future we want to build together for our coast, environment, heritage and communities.
