Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire

Aberdeenshire stretches from “one of the last great places on earth” to “one of the world’s top-rated coastlines” (National Geographic). Aberdeen, Scotland’s third largest city – where impressive ships dock right up against the city centre streets and dolphins leap in the working North Sea harbour – is “one of the most architecturally distinctive in Europe” (The Scotsman).

The area is set between the mountains of Royal Deeside and 165 miles of golden coastlines running along the Banffshire Coast. Visitors are invited to roam for miles across great estates, expanses of moorland, ancient Caledonian forests, rolling farmland, vast dunes, wide sandy beaches and expansive coastlines.
