The village of Crombie lies on the A985, just west of Charleston. The very attractive Crombie Point, south-west of the village, was, in the 18th century, a busy harbour, with ships loading iron and coal from the surrounding area.
The village was also once the base for an MoD armaments depot, built into the cliffs, which had its own rail connection. Its small and colourful church was built in the early 1920s by the Admiralty.
