About 10miles south of Stonehaven along the coast, you will find the royal burgh of Inverbervie, often knowns as ‘Bervie”.
This Aberdeenshire village has a population of around 2,000 and can be reached by taking the A92 trunk road from Stonehaven.
The origins of the name derives from the Gaelic. Bervie is associated with the word "beru", to flow, and "inver" denotes the mouth of a river.

Inverbervie was granted Royal Burgh status in 1342, by King David II of Scotland after his boat ran aground off the coast here. The Royal Charter bestowed various rights on the local inhabitants, many of which are still in effect today including fishing rights on the River Bervie.
Over the last few years, many new houses have been built and the town now has a thriving community
