Castle & Whisky Country
This region of Scotland is blessed with outstanding scenery – the majestic Grampian Mountains dominate the skyline to the West whilst miles of unspoiled and often dramatic coastline frame the area in the East.
With its sparkling granite buildings, Aberdeen has one of Scotland’s most enchanting skylines, while the old town has a magical air of time gone by. A fantastic range of first class restaurants and a vibrant nightlife combined with a thriving cultural calendar and shops galore, all help make Scotland’s third largest city a modern destination well worth the trip.
The capital of the Grampian Highlands is even more unique thanks to the treasures on its doorstep. Sample the “water of life” and visit the eight distilleries and cooperage on the world’s only Malt Whisky trail.
Follow the Castle Trail taking in 11 of the finest gems the region has to offer. Or head to the coast where vast empty beaches, interspersed with picturesque fishing villages and dramatic cliff top scenery waiting to be explored. Hit the ski slopes, play on championship golf courses or follow in Queen Victoria’s footsteps – the choice is yours.
