Crawton, Shetland Islands

Crawton is a former fishing community on the southeast Aberdeenshire coast in Scotland, deserted since 1927. Approximately three miles south of Stonehaven, Crawton Farm lies to the north of Catterline above a shingle beach. The ruins of 23 houses and a school are all that survive of the coastal hamlet on the clifftop. In its heyday, 30 Crawton men fished 12 boats and the village had its own fish merchant.
