In the northeast of Scotland, the fascinating countryside of Aberdeenshire can be found jutting into the North Sea. It is home to endless castles, some of which are ruined, as well as part of the world famous Cairngorms National Park. Surrounding the city of Aberdeen, where shopping streets and indoor malls provide the chance to indulge in a little retail therapy, it stretches towards the fishing town of Montrose in the south. Explore imposing Drum Castle, a 13th century fortification with square towers, or visit Balmoral to see where the other half live. Enjoy scenic walks in the mountains during summer, and skiing throughout the winter, while intrepid holidaymakers can indulge in wind-surfing or kayaking off the coast.
Our wide range of holiday cottages in Aberdeenshire provide a great choice of accommodation right in the heart of this fascinating region. Bring your dogs to stay in our pet-friendly Scottish cottages and avoid the guilt of leaving them behind, or choose a larger property for that perfect celebratory stay away with family or friends.
