Aberdeen & Aberdeenshire

On Scotland’s wild and remote northwest coast sits the county of Aberdeenshire. Start your visit in its namesake city of Aberdeen, where the wild ocean meets a beautiful metropolitan city centre. Take a stroll along the beach to spot the resident dolphin pod and then head into town for some retail therapy and to catch an evening theatre performance. Beyond the city, breaks to Aberdeenshire offer stunning views along a rugged coast dotted with sandy bays, as well as a view on the ancient history of the region. Visit the stone circle of Easter Aquhorthies and the Kincord Cross Pictish Stone as well as the Medieval St Machar’s Cathedral. Breaks to Aberdeenshire are as varied and exciting as you want them to be.
