Self Catering in Aberdeenshire

If you are looking to explore castles then Aberdeenshire is certainly the place to do it. There are more castles per acre than anywhere else in the UK including Braemar, Craigievar, Dunnottar, Huntly and Castle Fraser to mention only a few. With our selection of self-catering properties you can even stay in a castle or within castle grounds!

For walkers and wildlife watchers a trip to the Cairngorms National Park is a must. Here you will find mountains (including Ben Macdui, the UK’s second highest peak); moorland; wetland; grassland and native forest and this diversity of habitat is home to a host of wildlife including a quarter of the UK’s rare and endangered species.

To explore the rest of the county you might hurry to Banchory, lead on to Macduff or head for Peterhead – one of Europe’s busiest fishing ports while nearby Slains Castles is said to have inspired Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.”

The City of Aberdeen itself is famed for its buildings made of locally quarried grey granite and the prosperity brought by the North Sea Oil industry. Located at the mouths of the Rivers Dee and River Don the beach in-between has helped earn it the romantic moniker of “The Silver City with the Golden Sands.” An ideal destination for shopping, arts and culture it is a perennial “Britain in Bloom”   medal winner and has been dubbed “the Floral Capital of Scotland.” The warm, Doric welcome extended to visitors is encapsulated by the city’s official motto: “Happy to meet, sorry to part, happy to meet again.”

Holidaying in Aberdeenshire you will find yourself in good company as the county is home to Royal Deeside and the Balmoral Estate. Referred to by Queen Victoria as "my dear paradise in the Highlands" and still loved by the Royal Family today, from April to July you can visit Balmoral’s grounds and gardens. Well, if it’s good enough for Her Majesty…
