Peterhead Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

The Sheriff Court in Peterhead is situated at the corner of Queen Street and St Peter Street. The courthouse was built in 1869 by architect William Smith and was extended in the late 1990's, as can be seen from the old and new appearance at the front of the building on Queen Street. The Justice of the Peace court was established in the same building in 2008.
