Lovely walk around the squares where the residents take pride in their properties and gardens., they are also willing to tell you about the history of Footdee. Lovely on a nice sunny day

Cute little houses and structures that are well kept. It is a bit of a walk from town but on a nice day you will walk past the harbor and its like an oasis. It is a quick visit.

A near hidden gem away from the beach coffee shops. Well worth the visit. These homes used to be fishermen's homes real working class area at one time now bought up by professional people. A trip through time walking around these buildings wow.
