Aberdeenshire

A vast area of the north east of Scotland, providing an abundance of reasons to visit.

Aberdeenshire is one of the 32 unitarycouncil areas in Scotland and a lieutenancy area. The present day Aberdeenshire council area does not include the City of Aberdeen, now a separate council area, from which its name derives. Aberdeenshire borders Angus and Perth and Kinross to the south, and Highland and Moray to the west.
The plethora of market towns, seaside towns, Royal burghs, picturesque villages, rolling hills and farmland makes Aberdeenshire a popular destination, especially amongst those with a great love for the outdoors. It is home to many interesting trails including the Castle Trail, Coastal Trail, and the Victorian Heritage Trail as well as the Cairngorms National Park – Britain’s largest national park.
