History of Inverbervie

Inverbervie has a rich history and the town was granted Royal Burgh status in 1341 Impressed by the hospitality they received after landing in Inverbervie upon their return to Scotland from exile in France, King David II and Queen Johanna granted this status within the space of a year.

Originally established as a fishing village, over time Inverbervie developed into an industrial centre with the introduction of Scotland’s first flax mill in 1787, while textiles and processing industries still play a part in the local economy to the present day.

Inverbervie, which has a population of approximately 2,000, is an attractive residential location and is popular with commuters thanks to its handy location on the A92 and near the A90. Additionally, the village is well served by its transport links, which provides easy access to Aberdeen and connects to the neighbouring towns of Stonehaven, Montrose and St. Cyrus, amongst others.
