A Few of Our Favourite Things

A selection of our favourite days-out, places to eat and things to see in the Aberdeenshire area, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

We have worked with the fantastic guided walking service, Hillgoers, to put together a brochure with all of our favourite things (as well as a bit of necessary information!). If you can’t find what you need please just ask a member of the team – we will always do our best to meet any requests.

Aboyne is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore Deeside as it is within driving or bus route distance to both the coast – where you could visit the breath-taking ruins of Dunotter Castle near Stonehaven, watch seals whilst enjoying a pint in Catterline or try dune surfing on the beaches North of Aberdeen! – or the Grampians where, if you are lucky, you might try Scottish skiing or spot one of our most precious and revered birds – The Golden Eagle!

There really is something for everyone – whether you enjoy a quiet stroll around one of our local castles, art galleries or distilleries or if you fancy something more strenuous – kayaking or even swimming in one of the local lochs or rivers, mountain biking or horse riding in Glen Tanar, a hike up the Lynn of Dee or Lochnagar and of course, fishing……..It is all possible!
