Aberdeenshire Holiday Guide

Aberdeenshire stretches from the misty peaks of the Cairngorms to the busy North Sea Coast and the city of Aberdeen. With everything from lush countryside and sandy beaches to impressive castles and whisky distilleries, this is the ideal region to experience Scotland at its very best. Discover the ‘Granite City’ of Aberdeen, a destination steeped in medieval and Victorian history revitalised by the North Sea oil and gas industry. Hop on to Scotland’s ‘Castle Trail’ and see a selection of Aberdeenshire's many castles. Visit dramatic clifftop ruins and elegant Highland estates and be transported to a lost age of aristocratic splendour and military intrigue. Aberdeenshire is also the perfect place to play a round of golf. With over 50 courses in the region, including Royal Aberdeen, the sixth oldest golf club in the world, travellers are spoilt for choice.

Aberdeenshire Landmarks

For a royal treat pay a visit to Balmoral Castle, the Scottish home of the Royal Family since the middle of the 19th century. Situated in gorgeous countryside in the Royal Deeside area, this Category A listed building is a wonderful sight. Discover the truly spectacular Dunnottar Castle standing on a clifftop at the edge of Aberdeenshire coast. Used in the filming of several big budget movies this landmark will have you reaching for your camera. Golfers will enjoy working their way down Aberdeen’s golf coast playing courses like Royal Aberdeen, Fraserburgh, Stonehaven and the Trump International Golf Links. Head for The Cairngorms National Park to experience one of the UK’s best loved natural spectacles.
