Aberdeenshire has a stunning coastline, with unspoilt beaches, picturesque coastal towns and also has part of one of Scotland’s most mountainous areas, the Cairngorm national Park (the largest national park in the UK), within its boundaries.
For hundreds of years, Kings of Scotland had residences in Aberdeenshire and their influence may explain why Aberdeenshire has more castles per square kilometre, than anywhere else in the UK. In recent history (1852), Queen Victoria made this area popular by setting up the UK Royal family summer residence at Balmoral Castle which she famously called “My dear paradise in the Highlands”. The current royal family still spend 2-3 months per year at Balmoral, which makes it one of their main residences.
Aberdeenshire is home to 14 whisky distilleries, producing an excellent Scotch Whisky thanks to the pure highland water and the malting of barley, which historically has thrived in the local climate. Aberdeenshire’s neighbour Speyside also has many famous distilleries.
Aberdeenshire’s coastline hosts kilometres of unspoilt beautiful beaches, where seals come to rest and puffins play. Old fishing villages and towns, once home to busy fleets, now offer a peaceful retreat for both locals and tourists. Aberdeenshire is home to some of the highest mountains in Britain, which provide a magnificent backdrop to the River Dee, flowing from its source in the Cairngorms to Aberdeen. At certain times of the year it is possible to see the salmon jumping, whilst the deer graze on the slopes nearby. Many pleasant walks are possible on Royal Deeside. Innes Carma Tours can also arrange bicycle hire, which is recommended given the availability of scenic cycle paths.
