A wild and dramatic landscape right on our doorstep, Aberdeenshire is a must-visit location for outdoor lovers. From the sprawling, rugged coastline to the walker’s paradise of the Cairngorms National Park, these unspoilt landscapes offer the chance to reconnect with nature and get to know the local people, history and culture.

Take a walk or bike ride along the coast and find spectacular views and charming coastal villages to explore. The coast is also a great place to spot wildlife. For the best view of the cliff-dwelling seabirds, plus other ocean-goers such as dolphins and seals, take a boat trip with a local guide.

Further inland, the famous Munros offer fantastic terrain for mountain biking, e-biking, and challenging yourself with a hike. And, if you’re a bit of a history buff (or even if you aren’t!) exploring some of Aberdeenshire’s 263 stunning castles is a must.
