Aberdeen Flights (ABZ)

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.

Things to see and do

Castles

Castles

Deep in an ancient pine forest, beside a fast flowing river, on a high snowbound mountain pass, among rich rolling farmland, and perched on cliffs edges. These are some of the spectacular settings for Aberdeenshire’s 300 castles: there are more here per acre than anywhere else in the British Isles. Most you can see, many you can visit – and some you can even stay in!

Whisky

Whisky

Get into the ‘spirit’ of Scotland’s ancient art of whisky production at some of the world’s best-known distilleries. Nature provides the wherewithal for Aberdeenshire’s “water of life”. Whether it’s the toasted barley from the fertile farmlands, the ice-clear mountain water from burns and springs, the smoky peats and heather honey from heath and moors, or simply the sparkling fresh air – the whisky distilleries are busy bottling the essence of this beautiful place.

Golf

Golf

Scotland is famous as the birthplace of golf and for its spectacular golf courses; some still begging to be discovered in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Two of the top 10 oldest courses in the world can be found here too. Great dunes stretch along Aberdeenshire’s coast – some of them said to tower 100 feet high - in this extraordinary sandscape are some of the world’s most challenging links courses. The panoramic views and elemental power of the courses can take a golfer’s breath away.

Food and Drink

Food and Drink

It’s no coincidence that Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are the producers of so many world-class favourites, this region is acclaimed for its home-grown produce. It’s known for the quality and scale of its arable land and rich pastures - homing a wealth of venison and game - for the seafood – Peterhead is Europe’s largest white fish seaport and Fraserburgh is the biggest for shellfish, and there are fishing harbours all round these 165 miles of coast.

Outdoor adventure

If Royals get to be themselves in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire – imagine how you will feel. Out in the crisp fresh air with views for miles across great estates and heathery moors. Exploring ancient forests. Bagging Munros (a mountain over 3,000 feet high). Hopping onto a ski lift. Or striding out along the wide expansive sands.
